At this point there can't possibly be much left to do. I suppose you could try gathering 5-10 guys owed money and then hire a collector / bagman, but that would be illegal (or at least highly unethical) as there will probably be physical violence or threats of physical violence involved. If he is successful he will likely claim 50% of the money retrieved. I am not sure where you would find someone though, maybe do some research into the credit scene.
Nin. obviously i woudl expect TGT to distance themselves from a post like this!!!
Yes we would distance ourselves from that for a huge number of reasons. One of which is that it simply would not work. There is no money and you cannot get blood from a stone. It is not that they did not want to pay it is that they could not pay (I still believe).
Also I dont think (note "think" im not 100%) that debt is legally binding anyway because it is with a bookmaker in Costa Rica, and the UK Gambling Bill would not apply to it. So you are not being debt collectors you are just muggers if you try anything like that.
Other reasons also would be that there is lots of fish in the Sea and there is always somebody bigger. If you go after somebody in that way then you want to be damn sure they dont have bigger friends behind them because after the initial hit/get your money possibly with threats/menaces you are not dealing with the kind of people who would let you get away with that. Not this week, month, or even year, but someday when the heat has gone they will catch up with you! It would not be one way traffic.
Seeing as the above is not favoured are we all too write the money off then???
I still stand by the fact that at least one of the owners of heroes WILL earn some money again before they die and they should be forced to pay debts they owe before their wage hits their bank - in the same way the CSA works i.e. they take their chunk and you are left with whats left.
