Martin Jan, from CSA Birmingham, brags about going to Disney Land

Martin Jan, from the CSA in Birmingham, has sent out an ‘out of office’ reply from his email address to parents struggling to make ends meet bragging how he, and others at the CSA, are off to Disney Land in February next year.

It’s quite common to set an out of office on your email, so people emailing you know they’ll have to wait for you return to get a reply, but it’s also quite common to set a different one for internal and external emails. This way, Martin could have told parents who are unable to make ends meet financially that he’s away from the office and will reply to them on the 2nd of August, and could have told people at the CSA that he’s off to Disney Land, do they want to come along.

But no, instead Martin bragged to people who cannot afford Read more »

CSA tells me I am £25,000 in arrears but can’t explain why

I have a debt collection agreement to pay arrears originally £11000 which is now £8000. I am unaware of how these arrears came about so contacted the CSA in April, 2014.

After months of contact and getting my MP involved I have today received a letter with no breakdown but now my arrears are £25752 ????? I spoke to a lady at the CSA who had dealt with the complaint and had sent the letter but she couldn’t explain how the arrears were no so much nor was she aware of the debt collection agency.

How on earth can we deal with these people it is a shambles. should I go to a solicitor ?

You couldn’t track him down

My relationship with my 2 sons father ended nearly 5 years ago, we were married for 15 years and still married to this day, we did go to go and he was told to pay £125 per child per month. To this date nearly 5 years later I haven’t received a penny. I tried the csa a few years ago you couldn’t help me because you couldn’t track him down, how do I stand now?

I will have paid off the arrears within 400 odd years

I have been waiting years for the CSA to sort out my case. In 2010 I had a DEO for £150.48 per month. This amount is deducted from my NHS Injury Benefit which I have received since 1994 when I was pensioned out of the ambulance service.

I claim no benefits and survive on my pension and what’s left of my Injury benefit. The Nice lady at the CSA informed me today that they have treated me as self employed! My arrears according to the CSA are £30,000 so my £150.48 is £87.91 for child and £62.55 off arrears. So good news is I will have paid off the arrears within 400 odd years! Bonus!

The nice lady promised that she will ring me tomorrow. As I pointed out that CSA’s own website says that they don’t class injury benefit as income. They won’t ring back as they haven’t done for the last four years. But I will continue to ring them weekly to check progress on my case!

I found them to be good!

I found the csa to be very good. My ex husband paid 15 per week from 1998 and would not increase it. So my new partner who died in 2011 brought my daughter up from 1999.

When he died I contacted the csa because I had no job because became carer for my partner and ex husband still paid no more. He was supposed to pay them direct and did not so they put attachement of earnings on him and now he pays . It took thirteen years and got the bastard so thankyou csa
