We were friends with the police officer and her husband for a while, but then we had a bad fall out. Her husband done some printing work for us and told us he wanted no money, then when the friendship failed he then wanted payment. After threats like "you will be sorry" and "pay us and we go away" it went to small claims court. The judge sent both her husband and mine to a room to discuss the matter but her husband did not wish to discuss. So in court the judge has sent it to proper court as my husband has a good case and more or less told her husband he was stupid.
Since this my husband has received letters from 2 creditors that he owed money to over 10 yrs ago, out of the blue. She kept telling him in court we will get you and you will be sorry.
We go back to court next month, and just wanted a bit of information as to whether or not she was allowed to not only look up personal information on him but contact the people looking for him.
Also i went through something horrendous in my past that people went to prison for i do not want them knowing where i live, so i am scared at the moment and considering going to the police myself.
It was printing work. It was about 4 months after. No he is not in the police just her.
Onr was a credit card and the other was a bill to a shop. It was debt collecting agencies looking for him.
Yes it was outside our house and in a side room. It was about 300.00 they were claiming for.
The issue of not wanting people to know where i am is that a bad crime was committed against me and the men involved sent to prison and i am worried that if she is looking into our backgrounds that she can get hold of this information. Nothing to do with this issue.
