HMCS Retaliates...

 ...by removing a negotiable instrument.

Listen to this exchange. The conversation is between a Freeman and a geezer at Her Majesties Court Service.

Newcomers to this blog may not be aware that there is in law a maxim which states: "He who creates the liability must also provide the remedy". In essence, it means that if a corporation issues you with a bill, for say £50.00, they must also provide a method for you to pay that "debt". For a long time they (HMCS) used Transcash giro slips. For those of us that know these are negotiable instruments (which are as good as cash), we knew simply to sign them and send them back. 99.99% of people, when issued with one of these things, fill in the amount, sign it, AND add a cheque before sending it off to the relevant department. This means that HMCS are getting paid twice. 

This time last year Freemen started to awaken in sizeable numbers. They started also to return these giro's with nothing more than their autographs. This told HMCS that their scam was ending. Their days of "double-dipping" were numbered. They now plan to remove the Transcash slip as a lawful* method of payment which forces us to send actual (fiat) money to these thieving scoundrels. Now, this means that HMCS will lose out, but we the people, lose out still further. As we are bankrupt, a mechanism to settle these "debts" has to exist. HMCS are now determined to remove the best option we have for settling these fines.

*Although I state that this is a lawful method of zeroing the debt, not all court payment collection clerks are aware of it. This was yet another secret hidden right out in plain view.

It can be confusing, this subject of liability, so if you have questions, fire away.

Check out the vid first as it may answer some of your questions. A few of the comments are well worth a read too.

would that work for the slip they send with a credit card statement? just fill out the amount and sign it?

I would say a cautious yes. Cautious because I would need to see the slip. It needs to look like a bill (most are simply notices) and it needs certain pieces of information on it to qualify as a negotiable instrument.

You might want to spend some time listening to this podcast:


It's a real eye opener.

In fact, spend as much time as you can at this site. The lads have tried pretty much everything and they know what works and what doesn't. They will also help you if they can with some guidelines.
