  1. OK so no option but to pay then? i created an account on the gov gateway and followed all steps so is there something else i may have missed?
  2. , I followed the steps above but have received a letter stating: "To the Defendant You have not replied to the claim form. It is therefore ordered that you must pay the claimant £160 for debt and £107 for costs. You must pay the claimant a total of £267"
  3. Hi. I've received a pack in the post which appears to be in response to my letter requesting copies of information. Is there anything I need to do with this or do I await further correspondence having notified of my intention to contest their claim? Couple of things I feel I need to add because I'm getting nervous again now!! The PCN from VCS that I have against me is actually x2 so if I do have to cough up to them it's not going to be cheap! Secondly, does it affect or change anything if I registered an appeal way back when they first tried to charge me? I contested both £60 charges and they upheld their decision - the pack they've just sent me only served as a reminder of this..
  4. Just getting the CPR31:14 done... regarding the statement below, am I confirming that I will pay copying costs here? In accordance with CPR 31.15© I undertake to be responsible for your reasonable copying costs incurred in complying with this CPR 31.14 request.

  7. Not interested in a counter claim tbh but just want it to go away and stop hanging over me!! A colleague in work has one which is almost five years old and only at the same stage as me so they must be trying new strategies?
  8. Hi, Latest correspondence attached which follows my 'simple simon' letters sent to them. Is it time to worry?SAPTLASPL0121110508110.pdf
  9. this one ok? My Road My Town My County My Postcode Date xx xx xx Your Reference No. xxxxxxx DEAR VCS, With regards your letter date 24/09/21. Thanks for the letter before claim. So you seem to think I owe you money? I had a great laugh at the idea you actually thought I'd take such nonsense seriously and pay you my hard earned cash. You see I know that your claim has no basis in law whatsoever. It's an obvious scare tactic or the junior you got to write the letter is thick as two short planks! So seeing as you now know that I know this, you have two options really. Your can either drop this hopeless case or we will go to court where I will embarrass you and also go for unreasonably high costs. It will be easy money for Christmas for the family and me. Full Name.
  10. Ah ok. Nothing from the court just 2x LETTER BEFORE CLAIM which are for two instances in the same week.. Should I scan a redacted copy?

  12. Hi All, I have attached an extract from the latest correspondence I have received and wondered if this should now be considered as LBC? I'm still worrying about this an awful lot and to make matters worse, there are two fines which are exactly the same as I did an airport drop off and collection within three days - any letters I get, I get twice!! Your guidance would be appreciated.. Many Thanks. Doc1.pdf
  13. Thanks and I admire your directness and confidence but it's naturally a little bit unnerving for me to see this type of correspondence for the first time; it arrived from a different company so I just wanted assurances. For the avoidance of doubt, I should continue to ignore right?
