I was channel hopping last night and caught just the last few minutes of an ITV programme – Cowboy Customers. The statistic that caught my ear was that only 10% of County Court Judgements (CCJs) awarded in the UK are paid in full.
To be frank this does not come as a surprise (unfortunately, getting very cynical in my old age!) and I am sure we can enter into lengthy debate as to how dreadful this is and what action should be taken by ‘the powers that be’ to stop the other 90% getting away with ‘theft’
How many of these CCJs could have been avoided in the first place had proper credit checking and common sense been used by business people before committing goods/services on credit?
Think about it……
