  1. I forgot to mention if you go to G24 website they claim to be accredited by disabled motoring uk , they will be getting a phone call from me.
  2. Thanks guy's for your reassurances. I have no intention of paying these low lives a penny. I agree with ''i hate bailiffs'' about the markings on private land. It was in a retail park with no signs anywhere near the disable bay and usually the Blue Badge sign helps remind me to display the badge, which I do on any private parking areas, so as to let others know that there is a genuine reason to be parked close to the entrance of the shop. I followed a link put on here to the MSE where they advise not to bother with a second stage appeal if POPLA is not offered and that ''mitigating circumstances are POINTLESS'' My main concern was the fact that I told my father to tell them I was the driver, which I was, to stop him from worrying, before reading on here that that was not the best thing to do. I felt I had shot myself in the foot after reading the above. Thanks again for your help.
  3. Hi all, I haven't been on here for a while but thought I would put this on here in hope of some advice. My father who is the owner/keeper of the car that received the PCN and my mother who are both holders of Blue Badges and in their late 70's/mid 80's. I was the one responsible for parking in the disable bay which as far as I am concerned had a perfect right to do so, but inadvertently forgot to put the badge on display due to having to physically lift a mobility scooter out of the car and help my mother into it. My father in a panic over this PCN started to fret about finding the £100 to pay it. I told him not to pay and write and tell them what happened and to give the details of the Blue Badges. As you have probably guessed they still want their pound of flesh. I have now received a letter telling me I can appeal to IAS. Any help will be greatly appreciated. WIDYCHI
  4. I phoned them once and asked to speak to Samantha has she was the one who had written to me and asked me to contact her, I was told she was out of the office but could speak to someone else concerning the matter.
  5. Why are you even paying them anything when you are refuting their claims?
  6. Crazy, I couldn't agree more! As most of us now know credit is created out of thin air when you sign on the dotted line, so who really loses anything? My own experience with Orange, Arrow & Fred's ended with me reporting them to TS who dealt with it for me and have never heard a word from them since.
  7. Hi Brig, I can't find the original letter they wrote to me, but it was just a basic '' we're claiming you owe our client Arrow Global £141'' and that was all it said, nothing about what it was for or anything which is why I phoned them as I had never heard of Arrow Global, that's when I was told the original debt was for an Orange mobile phone contract which I told them I had never had. I've only ever had a PAYG mobile, which just so happens to be with Orange, as I said previously I was told by Freds while I was on the phone to them that if I'm denying ever having a contract with Orange then someone must have using my ID and that would be a case of fraud, I would need to report it to the police and get a crime number and pass that on to them. I then recieved a letter from them saying '' We note that you claim that the information we have been provided with maybe incorrect and in order that we may resolve this matter, could you please provide written confirmation of your dispute. This will assist us in working with our client to bring this matter to an early conclusion. I wrote back saying with regards the letter they had sent me '' I dispute owing Arrow Global any monies and that on the advice given to me on the phone had reported it to the police and the fact that the police had advised me to be carefull when dealing with people who send you letters saying you owe money and to ring them on premium numbers like 0845 as this could be a [problem], also the police would not give me a crime number without seeing some sort of evidence, like a contract and that i had phoned and told them what the police had said and was waiting to hear from them. The last letter I recieved from them was the one with the Statement of Account from Orange attached. In the mean time as they had put the idea of someone fraudulently using my ID. I contacted Orange and gave them the account number which they confirmed was an outstanding account from 2007, when i told them what i had told Freds they told me to fax all the details to there fraud dept, which I have also done. After reading on here that when something like this is in dispute (which they put in their previous letter) they weren't allowed to persue you for money untill the case as been resolved. Thanks for any help offered Steve
  8. Hi All, Is this thread still active? As i have also recieved a letter from Arrow/Fred. regarding a debt to Orange for a mobile phone contract I have never entered into. Unfortunetly I didn't come here first to read the do's and don'ts of how to deal with this sort of thing, I made the mistake of phoning them to find out what it was all about as I had never heard of Arrow Global. Long story short I was advized by Fred, that if I am denying any knowledge of this then it must be fraud and need to get a crime number, which the police wouldn't give me without some sort of evidence ie a contract, I asked Fred for this but all they sent was a Statement of Account and a letter with ''what my proposals for the discharge of this account'' will be. What should my next move be??
  9. Hi Paul Thanks for the advice and offer of help, i wrote to them sometime ago and have not heard anything since, i will write or phone them soon to find out what's happening and i haven't heard anything from the debt collectors either, so fingers crossed. Sorry it's been awhile before answering this message but this is the first time i've been back here since posting, i'm looking for advice on a different matter. Thanks again
  10. I never heard anything from DVLA about this untill i started getting letters from debt collectors saying that as i had not answered any of the previous letters sent to me ( which i never got) i am being fined £80 for having an unlicensed vehicle, the vehicle in question was sold for srap in early to mid 2009 and was SORN untill late 2009. I presume they did not recieve the reg doc's that was sent off at the time and i don't remember ever recieving any confermation from them at the time but then i don't ever remenber recieving any confermation for any of the vehicles that i have scraped in the past and i've owned a few old bangers in my time ( i used to pass them on too the banger racer boys) and never had any problems in the past. Any help would be greatly appreciated as i suffer from depression and it's not helping me being told i could end up in court.
