  1. I'm now had my first letter from Zenith Collections, very generously offering me a reduced payment of £80. I see that Zenith are the same company as Debt Recovery Plus. I assume I'm OK to continue to not contact them in any way....
  2. As predicted by you good people above, following a couple more letters, I've now been given the generous opportunity, for a limited time only, to settle at a reduced rate! I enjoyed one of the sentences in the letter - "When taking any court action, our client must demonstrate that they have done as much as possible to settle this matter.". Yes, they've done lots apart from just ask the restaurant "did they have an agreement with you to park here?". That would have nipped it in the bud at considerably less expense to them!
  3. I've today received a letter from "Debt Recovery Plus" in relation to this issue, giving me until 5th March to pay up. Is it now time to do anything on this? I've not been back in York since the incident so have not been able to go and see the restaurant.
  4. Thanks, I shall sit back for a while, and if I find myself in York in the near future, will pay the restaurant a visit!
  5. Here's the chain of events, any advice appreciated! Thursday 23rd November 2017 - "An authorised driver" parked my wife's car in a restaurant car park in York, went in to the restaurant to ask if a payment could be made to park until Sunday 26th (Minster Baywatch didn't offer anything above a "3 hours + until 6am" option). £15 paid and a hand written receipt was issued, showing the registration number of the car, and confirming authorisation to park from 23rd to 26th. No other writing on the receipt that stated the receipt needed to be kept on display in the car.
  6. Am I only able to get a POPLA code if I'd had an appeal rejected? I haven't appealed to Euro yet as I went down the Morrisons route first. If that hadn't been succesful I was going to put an appeal in before the time limit for doing that expired.
  7. Update: My letter to Morrisons (and possibly subsequent twitter rants in their direction) appears to have worked! I have just received an email from Morrisons Customer Services stating that as a gesture of goodwill they have arranged with the parking company for the charge to be cancelled. I have replied asking if I will receive confirmation of this cancellation from Euro Car Parks, awaiting reply. Do I need to make sure that I do get something in writing from Euro, or should I now just sit back and do nothing? Thanks for the help so far....
  8. I've sent a version with about half of that on. I've saved the more "arsy" stuff for if I need a second letter .Let's see what happens....
  9. So you think I should just go with something basic along the lines of "I got a charge while I was shopping at your store, please cancel it or we shall take our business elsewhere" and pretty much leave it at that?
  10. Thanks. Here is the text of the letter I intend to send to Morrisons today. Does anyone have any advice please on parts I should change/add/delete? Hello, On the 25th October I received a Parking Charge Notice from Euro Car Parks, relating to the 15th October 2016, when my car was parked at your York Foss Islands Retail Park store for a little over the 3 hour parking limit. We have bank statements showing that we did shop at this store that day. Euro Car Parks have sent this speculative invoice to me as the owner of the car, I do not recall who the driver of the
  11. Thanks. If Morrisons have ended their relationship with ECP, does that mean they no longer have any authority to get ECP to cancel charges (invoices) though?
  12. Great, thank you! I have a draft letter to Morrisons typed up at home. I may post it here tonight to see if it's worded properly or if anyone would recommend alterations if that's OK...
