  1. I've been working for current employer since Feb 08 and was contracted to 45 hours per week with one hour for lunch. In January my colleague was tragically killed in a car crash, since then his job and my job have been merged into one. The new job role requires me to start one hour earlier every day which is being done as paid overtime (when they bother to pay me that is). My contract states I should receive 1 week's written notice of any changes to start and finish times outside my normal working hours – I never received this. I seem to recall reading somewhere ages ago that if you work
  2. Can anyone explain why CEL and other such parking "companies" are still trading if they are failing to abide by the DVLA's code of conduct, sending threatening letters with implied legal status etc... Personally, I've made complaints to Trading Standards, the OFT and the Police. I'm certain many many others will have made complaints as well but still it would appear the authorities are turning a blind eye to such matters. Or is it simply a case of the Government are making money out of this so are in no hurry to put a stop to it?
  3. Having now read the letter I thought it was CEL's last throw of the dice before giving up. Obviously I've expressed this to my friend but she's had enough and wants it sorted once and for all. In fairness to her, she's under an extreme amount of pressure with work and personal things so in the end something had to give.
  4. My friend has received a two page letter from CEL replying to a letter I sent them some four weeks ago, stating why they believe the parking ticket is valid and how they are registered with various different bodies etc... Finally they have offered her to the opportunity to pay with the original amount of the ticket, in this case £60. Against all advice she has decided to pay this amount and in her opinion have done with it once and for all.
  5. I've just thought, now Newlyn are apparently passing back the file to CEL to action court proceedings. Surely proceedings are now more likely to happen given CEL enlisted the services of Newlyn to chase the "debt" and as a result Newlyn will be charging CEL for their services. Therefore would it be right to think CEL will try to recover this cost?
  6. I'm acting on behalf of my friend, so it's whatever I decided to but yes I'll let you know gladly. The last letter I sent Newlyn I requested them to hand back the file to CEL as the debt was in dispute. So if that's what Newlyn do I guess it's a partial victory in a sense. CEL have threatened court action several times in their letters but never gone through with it, the chances are they wont issue court proceedings when the file is handed back to them (or at least that's what I'm hoping).
  7. Well ermmm another "parking company" G4 Ltd have the same address registered with Companies House that Newlyn do. The address of an accountant so I'm told. But surely it's a bit too co-incidental that two of these parking companies use the same accountant?
  8. They are registered as Newlyn PLC with Companies House but to an address in Rickmansworth and not the registered address in Northampton which appears on their letters. Tut tut Newlyn!
  9. Lilo72, my friend has today received the same letter as you have. It would appear it's yet another mass mailing.
  10. Now on the Daily Mail's website - McDonald's drive-through customers face £125 fine for taking too long to eat | the Daily Mail
  11. My friend has received another letter from those wonderful people at Newlyn, completely ignoring the letter sent to them and stating "We need to receive payment of this debt at this time." Any advice of what to do next would be gratefully apprecicated.
  12. Just done a quick google of Newlyn plc FightBack Forums > Private PCN / Parking Ticket - Wild Bean Cafe BP Gatwick Connect Petrol Station!
  13. Lilo72, that's the same as my friend received earlier in the week. To say she's worried is a massive understatement.
  14. I've just spoken to Consumer Direct part of the OFT and according to the lady I spoke to said CEL are able to charge.
  15. Thank you for your reply feralcat2, I will pass on this information and probably contact OFT myself on her behalf.
  16. My friend has had a new development in her case with CEL, two months ago they sent a final demand for £120 otherwise they would take her to court. Now today she's received a demand for a debt collection agency on behalf of CEL for £208. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
  17. Has anyone actually been taken to court by CEL? My friend recently received a final reminder basically saying pay up in 7 days or we're taking you to court blah blah blah. I've read the advice threads on here and advised her accordingly including sending the letter telling them to invoice the driver and not the registered owner of the vehicle.
