    I have a debt outstanding of almost £1,000. Despite numerous reminders being sent, after five months I've still received nothing but false promises of payment. My final demand, sent a week ago threatened court action if payment not received within 7 days. Still no payment received.

    Can anyone advise on County Court procedure, please?

    Go to this website: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk and just follow the procedure to make a claim. Dead easy and you don't need to go anywhere.

    ^^^ What he said

    I used Moneyclaim with a certain well-known Northern purveyor of second-hand Mercedes parts. Worked a treat

    It's easy to use but largely useless. I won a case and had a judgement entered in my favor but the other side ignored the ruling and still did not pay up.

    You can always send in the ballifs but in my case the other party had changed address and were almost impossable to find.:wallbash:

    If they dont want to pay in the first place and dont care about the concequences you dont have much chance of ever getting your money back.

    This is why the UK is fast going down the b*g i'm afraid.
