  2. Thanks for the quick response DX. Stirling DC appear to be an International DCA, specializing in business debt recovery, from the UK and overseas, with contact numbers for the US, UK and Poland, and with a registered office in Krakow, Poland (this is according to their website). If I read lookingforinfo's reply correctly, instead of paying the DCA the so could service fees of £40, plus interest, I should pay Thompson Local that amount instead, who in turn, then pay the DCA for their work. If that is the case, when I make the final payment on Friday of £60, could I say that this
  3. Thanks guys for the response so far. I'm a little confused as to whether the Late Payments of Commercial Debts Act covers England, as that is where I live, or whether Stirling DC do have any powers to make charges under the Commercial Debts Act. If either of you could confirm which is which, that would be great. Many thanks again for your contributions to this thread. Cheers, Bloke199
  4. Hi all, This is a query for me, regards to a couple of outstanding invoices that have now been paid. I received an email from Stirling Debt Recovery on behalf of their client Thompson Local for two invoices for £162 each and another invoice for £60. I have contacted Thompson Local direct and have paid £324 to them this morning, and will pay the final £60 for end of contract fee next Friday. Thompson Local stated at first that I needed to contact Stirling DC, I said absolutely not, I don't do any correspondence with a DCA whatsoever, and asked if Thompson Local were refusing to
  5. Hi all, Just another update, received another letter, this time from Zenith, urging my brother to act now to take advantage of their discounted settlement offer of £99.99, it also has in the top right corner, a black box stating 'NOTICE OF INTENTION TO COMMENCE LEGAL PROCEEDINGS', however, it turns out that Zenith is another name for DR+, the cheeky buggers, just as well my brother didn't pay the original overinflated charge in their first letter after all !!! Told him this isn't the Letter Before Action, so not to reply to this one. Cheers, Bloke199
  6. Hi all, Seems ages since the last post, hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year, etc, etc DR+ have sent another letter to my brother, this time with a reduced rate to pay, as a goodwill gesture to £129. They also 'threatened' in the letter, that they'll recommend their client to take court proceedings if this generous offer was not accepted. My brother asked if this meant he'll be taken to court if he didn't pay the reduced amount. I pointed out to him the words 'recommend to their client' to go to court, not actually do it. I have advised him to ignore, but h
  7. Hi Silverfox, That was a good guess !! Yep, same old spiel, recommend court action, Supreme Court case back in 2015, blah blah blah. We shall wait to see what letter arrives next. Bloke199
  8. Hi all, Just an update from the last time I posted, my brother received a Debt Collectors Agency letter today demanding payment on behalf of Euro Car Parks for £145, I have told him to ignore but hold onto the letter. Any further updates I get, I'll let you all know. Cheers, Bloke199
  9. Hi everyone, My brother received another letter this morning from Euro Car Parks, stating the charge is now £85. I have told him to ignore it for the time being, but to hold onto it. I've also asked him to take additional photos of all the signs around the car park, a close up view of the one by the entrance, as well as if he was driving into the car park, and also a close up of the pay and display sign on the machine. I will update you all when I've heard from him. Many thanks for the help and information so far. Bloke199
  10. Hi all, I've attached some photos that my brother got earlier on today, including the sign by the entrance, pay and display machine, and the sign above it, the parking bays, and entrances to the pub itself. Hopefully, these will give you some of the information that you needed. Hi Silverfox, He received the parking charge for not showing a valid permit/pay and display ticket. As you can see in the photo's, there is only 2 disabled parking bays, although it does say on the sign above the pay and display machine that there is no concessions for disabled badge holders. I
  11. Hi DX, Many thanks for changing that, I see it mentioned so many times, then did the exact same myself, what a womble !! Hi EB, I will ask him to get photos of the entrance, all the signs and payment machine, and send them to me, as soon as he can. As to why he didn't check to see if he had to pay, I can only assume he thought that he didn't need to while having a blue badge. I'll update as soon as I hear anything. Many thanks again. Bloke199
  12. Hi DX, Thanks for the quick reply, I've only got copies of the letters as Jpegs, so were unable to do as one PDF, but both sides have been attached to this post as individual PDF's. Hope that is ok. Hi Renegadeimp, They are claiming for £85 because a valid pay and display/permit was not shown. Many thanks for your help so far Bloke199 ECP PCN.pdf
  13. Hi all, I'm doing this for my brother, who is registered disabled, so assumes that because he had a blue disabled badge on display, he didn't need to pay for a ticket to park here. The following details are the information so far: 1 Date of the infringement 18th Oct, 2017 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] 24th Oct, 2017 3 Date received 26th Oct, 2017 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [y/n?] Yes 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Two
  14. Hi Eric's Brother, Thanks for the hints of what to do so far, especially not mentioning who the driver was and for not admitting liability. I've asked the customer to read this thread, hopefully they will get back to me with the additional info required, or even post it themselves. Will advise them to appeal as the keeper, but not to admit who was driving the vehicle. Thanks so far, will keep you updated. Cheers, Bloke199
