  1. Ruling delayed until (probably) mid April. See the Parking Prankster blog for all ParkingEye topics.
  2. Hi, I've sent you a message about Proserve, and where you should look for the best current info. Please check your messages. Martin g
  3. hi, I would contact The Claims company and get them to sort it out as they will have the paperwork to hand.
  4. Good afternoon, I certainly would not put any money from the sale into a bank/ institution that you owe money to. I suggest that you open an account specially for the proceeds of the sale in a bank that you are not in dispute with. Then negotiate from a stronger position, Martin g
  5. "Waiting for a space is not Parking. ParkingEye lose in court. Beware of snakes at Fistral Beach " This was covered in the above post on The Parking Pranksters blog, March 17th 2014. Hope this helps, Martin g
  6. It will take parkingeye a few days/ weeks to reply, they will 99.9999% probably refuse your appeal. They must send you a POPLA code with their reply, you then have 28 days to get your POPLA appeal in, the POpLA time lines are strict so you must abide by them. Don't appeal on mitigation to POPLA, you will loose. The killer is Genuine pre-estimate of lose, (GPEOL) http://parking-prankster.blogspot.co.uk/ for all the up to date info and a guide to winning at POPLA, or at court. But don't worry about court, a good POPLA appeal will end this for you Martin g
  7. I agree with Armadillo, life is too short to get into a technical argument with parkingeye. Please make sure that you do not appeal on mitigation but on winning points, the killer being GPEOL. There are lots of winning examples here and elsewhere on the net. I wish that everyone who gets a PCN would complain long and loud to their MP, it was Parliament that passed a badly draft, badly considered law and the only way to get real action is to make your MP aware of your anger. You could also ask why parkingeye's owner, Capita who are largely dependant on public sector contracts think it is OK to [problem] the public. If you want tell Capita what a rubbish company they own their new CEO is Andy Parker, I am sure he would be pleased to hear from you. Martin g
  8. Morning, Whilst I have a lot of time for this site the parking experts are to be found at moneysavingexpert and pepipoo, so you may be better looking there. Also, check out the parking prankster for both a good laugh and a lot of practical advice. I won't put links because the mods don't like them Martin g
  9. Good Morning, Have you appealed in writing to Parking Eye? If you have and they have refused to listen to you use the POPLA code that they should have given you. Now get in an appeal based on genuine pre- estimate of loss ( none), and you can raise numerous other points, signage, right in law to sue, etc. All of these will cost PE money and you should win if POPLA are even handed.

  10. Good morning and well done!!! I am sure that you have enough evidence to go to the Police and to ask them to investigate under the Fraud Act 2006, the main headings of the offence are below. It was announced on the radio this morning that benefit cheats will be prosecuted under the Fraud Act and I can see no reason why a company that lies and makes misleading statements for gain should not be treated in the same manner. Finding someone in the Police who will take this on board may be difficult but I think it is well worth trying, possibly with the support of an MP who is interested in Consumer Credit and mabe a letter to the director of the CPS wouldn't hurt. I have shot down on this forum before for suggesting that the Fraud Act is a possibility, mainly due to the burden of proof, but you seem to have both documentation and a won court case with costs behind you. 1 Fraud (1)A person is guilty of fraud if he is in breach of any of the sections listed in subsection (2) (which provide for different ways of committing the offence). (2)The sections are— (a)section 2 (fraud by false representation), (b)section 3 (fraud by failing to disclose information), and ©section 4 (fraud by abuse of position). (3)A person who is guilty of fraud is liable— (a)on summary conviction, to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 12 months or to a fine not exceeding the statutory maximum (or to both); (b)on conviction on indictment, to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 10 years or to a fine (or to both). Wishing you well, Martin g
  11. Good morning, Please appeal to POPLA, as is your legal right, because this will cost PE £27.00 directly plus a further sum in answering your appeal. It will also cost their trade body BPA Ltd a further £100 or so because the true cost of your appeal is about £130. I urge everyone to appeal, and everyone will have valid grounds, because the more appeals the more it will cost the "industry". It would appear that POPLA are very far from being an independent appeals body, and will lean over backwards to assist their paymasters, the parking scamsters. Obviously you are not bound by POPLA's ruling, and you can keep the whole thing running by further appeals to The Lead Adjudicator. And then let PE try and take your to court if they wish. I know that the site is not keen on posting external links, but I urge you to google the Parking Prankster blogspot for a good laugh and for the knowledge in his posts. Knowledge is power as someone said. Good luck
  12. Thanks, That's pretty much what I thought. I will write to Sony anyway and see if they will make a goodwill payment. Martin g
  13. Hello, I need some help from a SOGA expert. My Sony Bravia failed after almost exactly 3 years needing a new circuit board at a total cost of £122. The TV new was over £600. SOGA suggests that it should have lasted at least 6 years. Obviously I cannot go after Comet so my question is can I pursue Sony through SOGA, to the courts if needed. Their so called customer service is based off shore with very poor english and they were most unhelpful. I certainly won't buy Sony again. Any advce would be welcome. I will write to them suggesting they cough up as a good will gesture but, given their attitude on the phone, I am not too hopeful. Thanks Martin g

    dvla court date

    You need to go to the Council Highways dept, they keep maps showing any land that is part of the Highway. My friend , in Wiltshire, was in a similar position and the Council confirmed that the vehicle was on private land although it was next to the road. He wrote to the DVLA with this proof and they withdrew the summons. Martin g
  15. Hello, I would write back and refer them to section 2 of the 2006 Fraud Act as below. I spoke to the police at Worthing after my run in with them and the CID down there are fully aware of the way they run their business. The police and Sussex County Council have had lots of complaints but getting a conviction requires a lot of proof and man hours. I would also send a complain to the OFT, the more people who complain about Marlin the more likely they are to be sanctioned, or, hopefully, have their consumer credit license revoked. 2Fraud by false representation (1)A person is in breach of this section if he (a)dishonestly makes a false representation, and (b)intends, by making the representation (i)to make a gain for himself or another, or (ii)to cause loss to another or to expose another to a risk of loss. (2)A representation is false if (a)it is untrue or misleading, and (b)the person making it knows that it is, or might be, untrue or misleading. (3)“Representation” means any representation as to fact or law, including a representation as to the state of mind of (a)the person making the representation, or (b)any other person. (4)A representation may be express or implied. (5)For the purposes of this section a representation may be regarded as made if it (or anything implying it) is submitted in any form to any system or device designed to receive, convey or respond to communications (with or without human intervention).

  16. Yes Sky do, switched from TT and I've not had any problems at all. Martin g
  17. Hello, In answer to the above, once is in the insolvency court system the only way to conclude the process is by a consent order which has a court filing fee of £40 (in 2010, probably more now). In principle the consent order could be filed by either party, it is after all a mutual agreement to terminate the proceedings, provided of course that both parties sign the order. It may be worth drafting an order and sending it Lowell stating that as they are on a loser they may as well back down now as incur further costs. Martin g
  18. Hello, I think a phone call to the ACAS helpline would be useful. I have spoken to them several times over the years as both an emplyee and as an employer and have a always found them to be knowledgeable and without bias. Martin g
  19. Hello, It appears that Global Arrow have provided you with a complete defence by confirming that the debt is over 6 years and therefore statute barred. To confirm, this claim is in relation to a ***************** credit card taken out on ******* 2003. Pursuant to the account information provided by the originating creditor the account was defaulted on or about the ********* 2003 Arrow Global Limited acquired the account on ************ 2009 and notice of assignement was sent to you on or about ********** 2009 pursuant to the Law of Property act 1925. I would write and point this out to them with a CRP request for the last claimed payment date. Martin g
  20. Me again, I just looked at the prices, Toolstation £19.95 against Wickes £75.00. I can understand why you wanted the difference. I once worked for one of the very large power tool manufacturers and the product sold to B&Q, Homebase and Focus were very slightly different, i.e. wattage, accessories supplied, cable length etc, to make price matching impossible as each outlet had their own varient of a common model. I am sure that the same goes on with many branded goods. Martin g
  21. Hello, Kingfisher own B&Q and Screwfix. In the past the manager in my local B&Q would, with some pushing, price match to Screwfix prices on identical items. At the time the nearest Screwfix was about 15 miles away but they have recently opened a branch near B&Q so I go there for the items that I need. Martin g
  22. Hello, Have you spoken to your local Councillor? He/ she is there to represent you in your dealings with the Council, and will want your vote at the next election. Some Councillors are a waste of space but most take their reponsibilities very seriuously. Martin g
  23. Hello, Marlin and their in house solicitor Mortimer Clarke will, from my experience, tell you that black is white. Don't believe a word they tell you. They will issue proceedings without any paperwork in the hope of a default judgement and then try to wriggle out misquoting legislation. After my run in with them I complained to Sussex Police that they had commited oiffences under the Fraud Act and spent some time talking to as DS at Worthing, I was told that they had a lot of complaints but proving fraud was difficult. Marlin starred in a dispatches programme on channel 4 a couple of years ago, they proved on film that they are not honest. I am sure you can google it and it should be archived on you tube or similar. Martin g
  24. Hello, I had intended to move from 3 who have dreadful customer service from non-native speaking call centres to Vodafone when my contract runs out next month. After reading the above emails I have changed my mind and will look at the other options. Martin g
