    Bailiff clamped my car.

    Bailiff clamped my car. 1st May 12 at 6:48 PM
    Task Enforcement ltd have sent a bailiff round our house for an unpaid Congestion Charge on 12th Oct 2011. If am guilty of the charge and i ignored the letter about bailiffs.

    He has turned up at my house today asking for 550 on the spot. I then said i couldn't pay the fine. He clamped my car and said i could pay half tomorrow and then the rest in two weeks. I cannot afford this at all.

    He hasn't given me a breakdown of the charges, nor any evidence of him being a certified bailiff. I also have no evidence of the warrant to clamp the car or a county court judgement letter.

    Is he acting legally?
    I would pay the 550 but i can only do this on small installments as unfortunately i am currently seeking work and on job seekers.

    Thanks for any help. It would be greatly appreciated!
