  1. Hi, I have cocked up so hands up to that. If you are new to their site its not that clear which part of the site you were in. I did ask and I did get replies to help me but I messed up because I thought I was in the AOS part, but only at the end of the section realised that I had followed an incorrect flow and inadvertently filed my defense. However that said I called the court today and was assured that I would be given several more opportunities to put my defense in. Can you tell me what documents needs to be listed in the CPR 31.14, I intend to get that over to the VCS as a matter of urgency, I intend to posit this tomorrow, so if you could let me know how it needs to look I would appreciate it. In order to try to recover the situation I plan to send in my defense by post and am also prepared to send a friend over to the hearing on my behalf if they run the case in my area, which I am told is common when it goes to court. The clerk advised that I would also get a chance to send in my defense by post. So I need to start compiling my defense based on the information I have now and possibly add to it once I know how the CPR 31.14 request goes Rabialioness, No I didn't receive an income and expenditure form ahead of the court docs, the Income and expenditure forms were part of the court pack. Thanks, rabialioness
  2. Hi, Thanks for that. I am now on the money claim website. May I ask if I am able to answer the questions and then come back and add my case defense in full when I fully know what that will be? I just want to be sure my intention to fight the case is made clear at this stage.
  3. Yes sorry here are the answers to the questions you are referring to: What is the value of the claim? Amount claimed = £160 Plus Court fee £25, Total Amount £185 Has the claim been issued by the Private parking Company or was the PCN assigned and it is the Debt purchaser who has issued the claim ? Yes the claim has been issued by Private Parking Company Were you aware the account had been assigned – did you receive a Notice of Assignment? I am not sure?, I received a PCN which I attached to this article.. Thanks
  4. Name of the Claimant ? Vehicle Control Services Limited, 2 Europa Court, Sheffield Business Park, Sheffield S9 1XE Claimants Solicitors: None Date of issue 13 May 2019 !The Claimants claim is for the sum of £160 being monies due from the defendant to the Claimant in respect of a Charge Notice (CN) for a contravention on 30/12/2018 at Berkeley Centre Pay & Display.

  5. Hi, I have to say the new site looks great Regarding the parking issue, I have just received what looks like papers from a county court from these crooks. The papers look like the normal kangaroo courts you often see now in this country these days. They say I have 14 days to reply but or the judgement may be taken in my absence, if I upload the images here will they be view able by everyone?, that of course is not a major problem I just really don't want to give these crooks any help at all in continuing to extort money from me. Thanks,
  6. [ Sounds typical of these sorts of companies, they almost don't care about the rules or the law, they just continue to try and get money out of us under false presences.
  7. Here are some images of the signage in the Berkeley Centre. Many Thanks Parking Signs.pdf
  8. Thanks once again for the replies. I have now attached the doc as a PDF as was mentioned previously. However I was not sure how to remove the old copies from the site, could someone please do this on my behalf. From whats being said so far it would appear that they are probably in a weak position because of the fact that they have not adhered to the POFA guidelines, probably because they know they are out of time. I will get a copy of the signage they have and post that up to see if there are any issues with the sign etc. Best Regards, John. NTK PCN PDF.pdf
  9. Many thanks for your comments. I too thought that they had run out of time and it would be great to hear from anyone else who can confirm this? Attached is the actual letter from 'Vehicle Control Services Limited' hope this helps shed some light on the future steps I should take.
  10. Hi, I wonder if you could give me some advice about a PCN I have received today. Having seen one of your previous responses I have answered the same questions in order to assist below: For PCN's received through the post [ANPR camera capture] please answer the following questions. 1 Date of the infringement 30/12/2018 @ 13:59 (Letter calls this contravention date) 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] Issue Date 15/1/2019 (it says 'posted' ? in brackets at the side of issue date) 3 Date received 17/1/2018 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [y/n?] No I cannot see this on the PCN 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Yes 6 Have you appealed? {y/n?] post up your appeal] NO I have not appealed at this stage. Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up 7 Who is the parking company? Vehicle Control Services, VCS. (I think the address is 2 Europa Court, Sheffield Business Park, Sheffield S9 1XE 8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] Berkeley Centre, Sheffield, S11 8PN For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. It says on this PCN that any appeals would be handled by the IAS There are two official bodies, the BPA and the IAS. If you are unsure, please check HERE- BPA If you have received any other correspondence, please mention it here I have not received any other information but the letter does say that if payment is recieved within 14 days then I could pay £60 instead of th £100 they intend to charge. The letter also says that if I want to appeal I must do so within 14 days. I am not sure whether or not I have any sort of recourse here, it would be great if you could please give me some advice. Many Thanks, John.
  11. Hi, Could I ask for some advice on how we should handle the following situation, that has recently cropped up. This problem started we believe way back in 2011, we went to the car phone warehouse to change a telephone that we had on contract with Orange. We were told that since Orange no longer supplied mobile phone services the mobile would be registered with EE the new Orange provider. We changed the telephone over and the assistant at car phone warehouse confirmed with Orange/EE that the old contract was now cancelled. Then some months later Orange sent us a bill for 3 months connection charges for the old telephone, we spoke to Orange a few times by telephone and they finally agreed to sort the account out and remove the charge since we no longer had that telephone. We then moved address, although both me and my partner still had EE phones so EE had full information of all of the addresses we had occupied. Now in 2017 my partner attempted to get a small item on credit and were shocked to find out that she had some sort of issue on her credit file, when we look at her credit record on a free credit database service, we were shocked to see that Orange had somehow and for some reason registered a debt of £125 against my partner causing issues on getting credit. we may need to get a small mortgage soon so we were really concerned about this. we have called EE and they quickly passed us over to Orange (although they are supposed to be the same company we thought) The Orange contact we were given was an email only service. The initial response we got back from them once we had highlighted it was that they could not find anything on their system to do with our account. Also EE had said they could not see anything in their records pertaining to this debt. We emailed Orange a second time and told them to look harder since it appeared that Clear score had something registered against my partner for, a mobile phone issue. after taking her d.o.b etc they looked again and this time they found something but could not be specific about when it occurred? At first they telephoned my partner and said said the issue occurred in 2011, at an address which we did live at in 2011, then when she advised them that we did not owe the money since it was from an old mobile that had been transferred by them to EE, and that the debt should have expired anyway since it was 6 years ago. The person at Orange then emailed her to inform her that the issue occurred in 2014 (he had appeared to change his mind?) but that the address it occurred at was the old address (we did not reside at this address in 2014). they advised us that they could do nothing about the issue and that we would have to speak to EE customer service, we again spoke to EE customer service who again told us they could do nothing since it was with Orange Credit team ?? We emailed the Orange credit team yet again and they said that the debt had been passed to a DCA, and asked us if we had received any letters from said DCA (Arrow Global Limited). We advised EE that we were extremely disappointed and that we want them to escalate it, we have heard nothing yet and now we are considering what actions to take moving forward. We have not communicated with the DCA since we have no contract with them and don't want to put ourselves in any situation that means we are in contract with them. Could anyone give us some advice on how we could/should proceed with this. Any help would be appreciated. Many Thanks, John.
  12. Thanks Honeybee and DX, Must be cracking up thought I had posted an update that I could not see on the site, maybe I didnt hit the submit button or something. Cheers, John.
  13. Hi, Could I have some more advice on how I should proceed, I was advised to send a letter of complaint to the Ombudsman again and also to my House of Commons politrician which is David Blunkett. I have sent both and about a week ago the Mr Lewis Shand Smith Chief Ombudsman, who has replieed about 10 days after this (Ithought I had posted onto the site when he replied but I cant find the comment I left?). Mr Shand Smith advised that he had found diecrepencies with the way they had handled the case and the fact that they had not communicated clearly and in any sort of timely manner, he offered me a small payment of £50 to recitify their short-cummings but did not comment on anything lese from the latter regarding the complaints that I had with Scottish Power. I have had absolutrely no reply from David Blunkett and the leeter was sent recorded deliver so I know his office recieved it. Just not sure where to go from here. Could you also advise me how I can check if there is a duplicate thread in the site since I am sure I commented about 7 or 8 days ago and as I mentioned earlier could not find the thread. Many Thanks, John.
  14. Hi Guys, I have followed your recommendations and sent my complaint by reordered to David Blunkett (Our local MP) sent that on the 20th October, still have not got any reply from his office. Also sent it by email to Mr Lewis Shand Smith, his office has just replied saying that they were not fully happy about the way the inquiry was carried out and as full and final settlement they would like to pay me £50 but oddly made no new reference to the issues I had raised about SP. Have not replied yet just wanted your take on this I am not really happy since I was hoping they would re open the inquiry in light of the new information and I had sent Mr Lewis Shand Smith a list on what I would like to see as a resolution and they have not responded to that either. Many Thanks for your continued help. Best Regards, John.
