  1. Update: - Brother wrote to manager of hotel telling them what the blighters who managed his parking were up to. Manager of hotel checked and saw as suspected that a B had appeared somehow before the registration. Matter was dropped. Why UKCPM couldn't do this themselves huh? Hmmmm....
  2. My brother received a notifications of a charge from UKCPM. Going back a few months he went on holiday, during this period he parked for considerably under the time he paid for in a UKCPM car park. He wrote to them flatly denying that any "offence" has occurred. They have now written back informing him that his "appeal" has been turned down. He says this wasn't an appeal. It was a complete and utter rejection of the notion that there was ever anything to appeal about. This is the enquiry that I am making on his behalf. He, being a charitable sort

  4. I was similarly accused by a LIDL security person a few weeks ago (I had bottles of nonalcoholic malted drinks in a bag from elsewhere) and "fronted it"- I had been advised so to do on this forum after an incident a few years ago in TESCO. All I did this time was:- walked in, looked at the cereals and walked out again. I was then stopped by a security guard and remembered all of the suggestions and lessons from the TESCO incident. "Can I look in your bag?" "Why?" "Because I suspect you have something in your bag" "No you can't" and walked off. She then threatened to ph
  5. I have now requested that the offer of compensation, which has been upped to £50, be sent to me. The person representing the shop/chain says "I trust this is an end to the matter" but I have not said this. The £50 I consider mere compo for the trouble they have put me to via their prevarication and obfuscation. I said this was accepted "without prejudice" in an earlier email. By the way:- friend of mine, a slight youth, prone to drinking. Wandered round same supermarket a week or three ago, after drinking (thinks:-) "will buy some fags but first what is in the bargains?"....blatantly fo
  6. Continued obfuscatory behaviour. Woman I was originally dealing with carried on with her nonsense, so I asked to be referred to her superior. He too carried on with said nonsense, stating that security guard had right to challenge me, that I had no automatic right to CCTV footage. I abandoned the correspondence for @ 1 month due to personal circumstances but have now looked at his last email. Pathetic amount of vouchers offered in compensation which I have now said I may just reluctantly accept but without prejudice and do not consider the matter at an end.
  7. So far:- I have requested the CCTV footage and it is conspicuous by its absence. I asked the Customer Services of said supermarket chain for email of their legal dept., and they claimed that their legal dept did not have an e-mail. Which seems a bit C20th of them! I told them I did not want to phone their legal dept because I wanted a written record of all communications.
  8. On edit make that "No" to the touching a "perhaps". Certainly not forcefully, but then I am a well-built fellow.
  9. Thank you ArtisanUK. No to the first yes to the second. I was detained via the temporary confiscation of my purchase. Also I was misled by the head office in their replies on two counts:- that the security guard was within his rights, and that I was not entitled to request the CCTV footage. They have reneged on the 2nd but not the 1st.
  10. Thank you. Such was the extent of the queue at this time that I couldn't really ask for a receipt/alert the staff as this would have been perceived as impolite, as queue jumping. I have been assured that said security guard (who works for a private firm employed by the supermarket) will not work in that supermarket again, though he has probably not been sacked. I still don't think this is enough and am taking the matter as far as I can, for what that's worth.
  11. Recently I was involved in an incident in a well-known high street supermarket. I was embarking on a journey and felt in need of refreshment, so I entered said supermarket. There was quite a queue, but the automated machine was free and as I only required a soft drink I used it, placing in the exact change, item on bagging area, etc. All went well except that I did not get a receipt. I thought at the time that not having a receipt was not a problem, yet on leaving I was accosted by the security guard who asked if I had paid for the item. I said yes. He asked me if I had a receipt, I said no th
