  1. Unannounced visit from debt collection bailiff

    I really hope someone can help me.   This morning I had a court baliff arrive at my door. She asked for my boyfriend who lives here with me and I told her he was at work (he was). She said she'd written to say she was coming today and was asking for 5,000€. She said she was coming in to my home to find anything of value to sell to repay the debt (good luck). I told her she was not coming in and that I did not understand German very well (this is the truth).  1. She did not give any identification 2. She showed me no court letter 3. She left no contact details. 4. She said she would come back 5. She said my boyfriend would be put in jail.   We have not recieved any letter from either courts or debt collectors and he has lived here nearly 3 years.   She said it was to do with courts in Bavaria but left no information about the debt or courts. My boyfriend lived in Bavaria for 15 years but left and moved back to the uk about 15 years ago.   She asked for my personal information amd I refused to give it. She then very angrily said I could shut my door.   I have no idea what my rights are here in Germany.  What can or can't a baliff do? I speak little German and have mental health problems (in uk I am classed as a vulnerable adult). I also have 2 children and I don't want them scared or their possessions taken. We are in a very bad situation financially and are moving back to the uk soon.   Thank you for reading
