1) Ignoring the bailiffs completely, do not be tricked into opening the door to them. There is no law which says you must deal with bailiffs.
2) If you've outstanding Council Tax owing, pay it directly to the council.
3) If the council refuses payment because it's with the bailiffs, ask them to put it in writing that they're refusing payment. In any event you can pay them on-line, through their website, or by internet banking etc.
4) Bailiffs must leave details of fees and charges you incur for each visit etc. There must be evidence they attended in person. Hand delivered (not posted) documentation. Charging without attending is a "Phantom visit" and an attempt to defraud you. In the event payment is taken by the bailiff for such an offence, this will be fraud.
5) They may bill you around £130 for what's called an "attendance fee" or similar. This would almost certainly be spurious. To enquire contact:
firstname.lastname@example.org or check out (or may be register) with this forum
6) They may bill you £24.50 for what they term a "redemption fee" or "Head H fee". This would almost certainly be spurious. Again contact above
