  1. I too do not recommend sending an empty envelope. There should be a blank piece of people [or a print out of the Mansfield excel court debacle] inside, "check enclosed"
  2. MET are full of BS as always. They respond "Do not uphold your request" which was to resolve the dispute through the courts with letters threatening "legal proceedings". Are they thick or what? I'm sure that you doing the best thing by continuing to ignore.
  3. Excel WILL write to you, the threats will multiply as you continue to ignore them [and so you should]. Just keep your nerve. By all means come back here for reassurance anytime. On no account consider paying these latter day Dick Turpins.
  4. NO - they keep on sending them because you haven't paid - nor should you! Letshelp is saying is that having sent the first "final demand" which you ignore, they will send maybe another three before it gets through their thick skulls that you are not playing. When they realise, they will stop annoying you and go off and annoy someone else.
  5. How did you pay? If it was by credit card you could write to the card company saying the money was paid under duress and ask that the charge be cancelled. Your other option is to make a claim under MCOL. If you went down this route you would have to write to the clampers first, giving them an option to settle [letter before action] More about clamping here: http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/parking-traffic-offences/137863-clamping-guide.html
  6. Such lazy reporting - why oh why do they call these tosh invoices "fines". 68904 - if you are in that part of the world I trust that you will writing in to educate and inform.
  7. Sanjvw - yes the ppcs and dcas do drone on about credit ratings and so on. Don't worry it is all pure bollox - here's the truth of it: From Adenuff’s Posting A typical Private Parking Company might have an intimidating standard threat letter that says something like this "FINAL REMINDER BEFORE LEGAL ACTION" "Failure to pay the full balance outstanding within 7 days of the date of this notice could result in the balance outstanding being registered as a debt against you in the County Court. A warrant may then be issued to bailiffs to recover payment. You will also become liable f
  8. Rmurphy, These guys are chancers of the first order. You will simply have to keep your nerve and keep on ignoring them. One of their tactics is to send unsigned court papers, again ignore, in fact ignore everything apart from actual court papers [posted from the court]. If this did happen to you, you would be the first person it did. Read the thread below, GuidoT has had over 70 tickets from these jokers including numerous unsigned court papers. Guess what, after studious ignoring, no further action was taken whatsoever. http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/parking-traffic
  9. Pat - erudite as always: Relevant extract of RTRA 1984 attached [RTRA 1984 S.63A(3) (b) Parking attendants. — (1) A local authority may provide for the supervision of parking places within their area by individuals to be known as parking attendants. (2) Parking attendants shall also have such other functions in relation to stationary vehicles as may be conferred by or under any other enactment. (3) A parking attendant shall be— (a) an individual employed by the authority; or (b) where the authority have made arrangements with any person for the purposes o
  10. Not quite, Court judgement first, not paid = Bailiff [scary people with statutory powers] Prior to court = debt collector - these guys have no power whatsoever, all they can do is ask you for money. You do not even have to give them the time of day.
  11. You will simply have to call their bluff. They are threatening you with the small claims court. Do not be intimidated by this because: 1. There is every chance that they will not carry out their threat. Their case really is very weak. 2. If they did, with any sort of proper defence, you would win. Sounds daunting but we come across these threats from private parking companies all the time but legal action is EXTREMELY rare, less than 1 in 1000 cases by most peoples reckoning. Either ignore completely or send a short response "see you in court". Either way stop worrying and
  12. Some links here: Warsop Web Letters http://www.excelparking.co.uk/downloads/flyer/Excel%20Flyer%20Issue%206.pdf Although excel claim on their website that they manage the car park for the council under the RTRA 1984, this certainly deserves checking. After all, they have something of a reputation for being somewhat casual with the truth. Yes, Excel have a contract with the council for the management of the car park, but is this a wholesale contracting out or are Excel acting as an agency? Jeeves, could you scan in the paperwork, washed of all personally identifying inf
  13. From Lamma's posting - from another WJ thread: In the Exeter County Court No 3009 of 2008 W J PARKING LIMITED (Company Number 04427096) Nature of Business: Car park management services. Registered Office of Company: c/o Bishop Fleming, Stratus House, Emperor Way, Exeter, Devon, EX1 3QS. Date of Appointment: 22 August 2008. Joint Administrators’ Names and Address: Jeremiah Anthony O'Sullivan and Samuel Jonathan Talby (IP Nos 8333 and 9404), both of Bishop Fleming, 2nd Floor Stratus House, Emperor Way, Exeter Business Park, Exeter, Devon, EX1 3QS. just search the gazette for the company num
  14. Probably not directly, but the administrator may sell on the "debt" to a debt collector who may send you landfill "on behalf" of WJ. This has happened on a number of previous occasions. Quite often the debt collector does not have any details regarding the original incident, making any remote possibility of court action even more inconceivable.
  15. M Davz, You may be being a bit previous here. ANPR International are a sister company of the notorious Excel. Assuming the business methods are the same, I don't think they can resist sending you some more landfill through through your letterbox. Wouldn't it be so much easier for everyone were they just to post their letters straight to landfill - cut out the middle man !
