  1. The quality is excellent Tom. I've just sacrificed half an hour of my life that I will never get back reading that load of bilge from Simon. A few things. For once Simon doesn't go on about appeals (although the correspondence between the two of you is in his attachments) so it's immaterial how you deal with this aspect. Again, unlike recent VCS/Excel WSs Simon doesn't even try to defend the Unicorn Food Tax, so you can really put the boot in re double recovery. I didn't find Jake's letter, but I did find https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/419312
  2. Is this car park local to you? If so, it would be good if you could go back and take photos of the signage. The last time someone did so we discovered that Simple Simon had been so stupid as to put details of two different companies on the signs, which would make it impossible for the motorist to know which company they were entering into a contract with. It would be useful to know if the signage is still pants.
  3. That's brilliant news. Thanks for coming onto the forum and telling us. Yes, the forum does try to empower people and is allergic to those horrible phrases "there's nothing you can do", "best to just give in and pay it", etc. BTW, I've had a look at your other thread, and you're not quite out of the woods with VCS just yet. Although for the moment they've crawled back under their stone, Simple Simon does have a habit of dusting off old cases and having another go. They have six years until the "debt" becomes statue barred, so hold onto the paperwork till then.
  4. Thanks BN. Seems I got the date wrong. I calculated it when the person who first posted about the case mentioned how long before their post it had been. So, revised snotty letter - Dear CEL, cheers for your Letter Before Claim. My local supermarket has completely run out of toilet paper in these dark days of lockdown and panic buying, so it was very kind of you to give me a hand. Now you know and I know and now you know that I know that your app is useless and your case is total pants. You also scored a big own goal when you tried to
  5. In post 102 I wrote that I thought you'd written too much about the appeals. However, I've noticed in all recent WSs of Simon's (of course all, they are cut & paste jobs!) that VCS/Excel go on about their wonderful appeals procedure that the driver "should" use. So I've changed my mind, if a motorist ignores the appeals procedure it's worth a few lines saying that they'd discovered it's a kangaroo court, and if instead a motirst does use the appeals procedure and fails it's worth stating that shows it's a laughable kangaroo court. Also I've noticed in the parts of Simon's WSs
  6. I agree with Brassnecked, change to "24 April 2020". I also agree with Brassnecked that there's no point in asking for the extra 30 days, all that would happen is that they'd be ready to sue on day 31. CEL are, quite simply, conmen, as shown by them insisting on app-only payment then deliberately making the app dodgy, so that they can try to chisel £100 out of people (which has now somehow mushroomed to £182 although there is no basis in law whatsoever for the increase). You need to show them you've sussed their sordid little game and would be big trouble if they tried court.
  7. You need to reply to the Letter Before Claim. How about - Dear CEL, cheers for your Letter Before Claim. My local supermarket has completely run out of toilet paper in these dark days of lockdown and panic buying, so it was very kind of you to give me a hand. Now you know and I know and now you know that I know that your app is useless and your case is total pants. You also scored a big own goal when you tried to sneak in £82 Unicorn Food Tax. Remember DDJ Harvey's judgement at Lewes on 24 April? Not very happy with these made up amounts, was he?
  8. OK, we can help you. A couple of questions first. You blanked out the amount they are claiming. Can you tell us? I bet they have added Unicorn Food Tax to their claim. Also, can you remember if this was pay-by-app-only car park, or if there were other payment methods?
  9. Thanks for posting up what you can remember of the correspondence, we were particularly interested in the "14 days". It looks like they have sent you a Letter Before Action and you need to reply. There are numerous examples of a "snotty letter" all over the forum. Have a search, have a look, and post up a draft of what you propose to send. Plus, is this car park near to you? Are you able to pop by and take photos of the signage?
  10. Because Simon can appeal this case doesn't mean he will - so for the moment relax. From what I've seen in the past, Simon has taken his thrashings in bye-law cases on the chin and has never appealed to a higher court, simply because if he lost that would be his business model destroyed. He has cash galore coming in from the mugs who just pay up so why risk it all. Cross the bridge of the appeal if it ever happens.
  11. In their draft application to the court they state that their Letter of Claim listed the proper three invoices. Is this true, or are they lying? As for replying to them, hang fire for the moment, see what people who have dealt with this sort of thing before have to say, there may be a way to oppose their application or at least make them pay a hefty sum to the court for granting it.
  12. Begging letter - ignore. It's not Debt Recovery Plus's debt, so they can do absolutely nothing.
  13. You could do, last year there was a private members' bill going through Parliament to regulate the fleecers (don't know if the General Election scuppered it or not). However, don't expect CEL to give a monkey's about what an MP says. They are crooks with complete contempt for you, me, MPs and the law. You need to reply to what I think is a Letter Before Claim to show you'd cause trouble & expense if they took you to court. Do a search for "snotty letter" and post up what you propose to send. I see you've been asked in posts 7, 9, 10, 13, 17 & 26 to
  14. Superb - thank you. It looks like a Letter Before Claim to me, although CEL haven't bothered to entitle it that way, and so you will need to reply. Hang on for a second though till the other regulars look in, just to make sure it qualifies as a genuine Letter Before Claim.
  15. I've had to hide your post because you posted the images direct to the thread, meaning anyone can see them, registered Caggers and not. Please follow the upload guide and upload as PDF. We only need to see the first page, the one with "CLAIM FOR DEBT" in the title.
