  2. Hi everyone, I had two accounts with Amex opened in 2003, One was Amex blue and the otherone was Gold Charge Card. I ran into financial problem and the accounts were terminated and sold to Capquest. I was first offered the Gold Card then followed by the Blue Card. Well, there is no outstanding debts on them now but there were penalty charges on both cards which I would like to claim back. I wrote to them requesting them to repay but they refused. I then sent a LBA and their response is basically the same. Below is their reply to my LBA: (Two letters for the two accounts but th
  3. Hello everyone, Yesterday I received a Penalty charge note for a parking offence in Budapest in month of August 2016. It is about 6 month ago. The company which is representing the charge is called Euro Parking Collection Plc or epcplc.com I do remember visiting Budapest and staying for few days but I did always paid for my parking but unfortunately I do not have the parking pay and display proof after 6 months of time. They also send me a link for viewing pictures of my caddy parked in the street and had a penalty charge note placed under my wiper which I never found it. My qu
  4. hi all i need advice on who to contact to get my issue resolved it all started with a parking which i thought was wrongly issued, i had parked on a street in front of a ticket machine that was faulty i walk round the corner to the next machine about twenty yards away, i bought a ticket and displayed it in the car and left to go to a jobs fair, on my return which was within the allotted time i found i had been issued a penalty charge notice , i emailed the address on the parking ticket explaining what had happened and that i thought that the ticket had been unfairly issu
  5. I face a massive fine I can't pay because I ticked the box on my prescription saying I was eligible for free prescriptions. This is because I am on working tax credit I asked the chemist if this meant I got free prescriptions (I was on benefits years ago, i forgot how it works with prescriptions). He said yes, and I ticked the box and got my fee prescription. Then I got a letter saying I was being fined (including what my prescriptions should have cost) £139. I realise, having tried to appeal unsuccessfully, that the onus is one me to read the form and know if I am e
  6. Not really looking for advice, but since I commented on someone else's thread, I thought I'd better start my own just to keep things straight: I get a pre-paid certificate for my prescriptions, have done so for a few years now. I pay by DD, £10.40 a month, I don't notice it coming out of my account, I get a letter once a year telling me it's been renewed, and I tick the box at the back of my prescriptions, no fuss, no hassle, my pharmacist has known me for over 20 years, that's it. Or so I thought... Got a letter the other day telling me that I had got myself a free prescription
  7. Hello all, Unfortunately I was made aware there wasn't enough money in my account to cover a DD to Hitachi. I put money in the account on the same day but it must have been too late as the payment was returned later that day. The next day I have rang up to make payment only to be told there is a £22 charge which is automatically added. Do I have any grounds to claim this back. The credit payment is £25 a month is seems unjustified that the charge is nearly as much. I asked them to clarify what the charge was for but the kept referring me to the contract I signed. This happened 3
  8. A bit of a running battle with these jokers, May they said I wasn't entitled to free scripts following one of their 'checks'. It seems that as I was on contribution based ESA as opposed to ''INCOME'' based, this negated 'free' scripts. Even the pharmacist informed me I was entitled to free scripts, however my disability advisor has confirmed that I am not. I called the NHSBSA weeks ago to inform them it was a genuine mistake, and I would gladly pay the cost of the script, obviously they said otherwise, and that I had to pay the penalty charge. I went online and paid the scr
  9. Ive received a letter before action from Gladstones re an alleged parking violation on private land there aren't any signs at the entrance barrier stating the land is private and subject to a fine for illegal parking. Although there are some within the car park, these are placed in such a way that tree branches etc obscure them. Is the alleged violation enforceable if there weren't any noticed placed at the barrier entrance to the car park? Thank you.
  10. Hi. Parked at a Southern railway rail station today and used the phone number to pay the daily charge . I had used it before but with a different car and the system recognised my phone number did a fast track to payment confirmation . I didn't spot that the registration number quoted by their system was not that of the car I was using today (lot of background noise in the car park). There was a penalty notice issued by Indigo when I returned. What are the chances of success if I appeal? I can prove that I own both cars and that the one for whom they issued the ticket
  11. Hi Just after a bit of advice really. My wife had two fixed penalty notices came through today for an offence on 8th August. She was in Brockworth, Gloucester with my daughter who was house hunting. They had gotten confused and a bit lost and whilst they did not notice at the time managed to go a short distance up a bus only link road then turn around to come back. The two tickets seem to show this but are one minute apart. Literally one at 13:54 then the other at 13:55. Yes ok but really two penalty charges within one minute surely not. Each charge s
  12. Heathrow airport drop off though this could apply to any airport I expect.. Heathrow airport is private land and I have a response from the Met police stating that and that they are paid to police the land by Heathrow airport.. Now I accept a need to police it for security reasons and because in motoring terms a lot of traffic uses the area daily. However on occasions the Met police decide they will clamp down on people picking up from the drop off areas which by the signs posted is an offence some signs state its an urban clearway no stopping allowed except for dropping off s
  13. Got stopped by 4 traffic police cars (that were on a roundabout) they checked insurance and driving license which was all good ! Then started looking around the car and said 3 tyres were rubbing as the car is lowered but not excessive (can send pictures on request) They told me they didn't know if it was legal or not so they took pictures to send away to be examined. they also threatened to take my car away from me but in the end they let me drive away. also the accident happened on 27th of june and I received the letter on 12 of july. does it matter that they sent the let
  14. Two weeks ago I boarded a bus at around 8:00am in London. I got off the bus a few stops later to head into a local Tesco store to buy my lunch for the day. I then walked back to the bus stop that I got off at and waited for the next bus to take me to work. The next bus arrived at 8:30am. It was one of those buses where passengers can board the bus on either the front, middle or back door. I boarded the bus from the back door. I sat downstairs and minded my own business, staring through the window and browsing on my phone. A few minutes later, I heard a bus ticket ins
  15. Hello, I got a PCN from CPS Midlands Ltd, I looked and they are not registered with the BPA (British Parking Association) and they also not registered with the IPC (International Parking Committee). I checked through their members today (17th of July 2018). I paid £2 initially for parking and got a machine error and the machine did not accept any more change. And it does not accept cards either. I then paid £5 and got my parking ticket which I displayed on my dashboard. There were two machines at their premises with the same tariff sign next to each. One of their machines were inacce
  16. Dear all, I had some NHS dental treatment whilst believing I was in receipt of JSA. However the DWP had stopped my claim without informing me. Consequently I have been hit with paying £43 for the treatment and a £100 penalty charge. I am no longer on any benefits and have no income whatsoever. My question is: What if I just don't pay the £143? Are they likely to take me to court for that amount? What would be the likely outcome of my refusal? Thanks in advance.
  17. My van was clamped outside my home early may. I went to the post office, set up a direct debit, then called the clampers and paid the £100 or so clamp fine, clamp was released later that day/eve. I thought that was it. Just received a letter from DVLA conmen asking me to pay fine just short of £200. I was under the impression that if you taxed it and paid the clampers that was it.. I am goinf to appeal it but just wonderd if you had any advice on what I should be saying, will they be softened up if I say I was hoping they would see light if I
  18. Hi everyone, love the website, long time lurker.. I received a lovely yellow penalty notice stuck to my window today. I have attached the 'ticket' in this post. From what I understand I should not do anything until i'm sent a notice to keeper, is that correct? And then from there I'm a bit unsure, so any guidance would be greatly appreciated! Thanks a lot PCN.pdf
  19. Hi All, I have been issued a FPN for spitting on a bush inside the land from where the Street is around 10 feet away in Hounslow. The foremost thing is , I am not aware of this offence at all. i DONT SEE ANY NO SPITING SIGN BOARD ANYWAY INSIDE OR OUTSIDE the land. There is an office in that land . When I came out of the premises I felt some saliva struck inside throat and before enter into street ,I spitted on the bush grown in front of premises. Oh suddenly I saw an officer came running towards me and started to say I committed an offence as spitting on bush which has been
  20. Hi, received a letter from DVLA - Or so I think.. It'd for an untaxed vehicle. My vehicle was definitely untaxed and was meaning to sort earlier, it was taxed before I got the letter too.. Asking for over £150 to be paid by full today (I was just about to call to sort but thought I would come on here first). Do DVLA send letters out like this? The fine seems a little too much?!
  21. Should the death penalty be re-introduced?
  22. Location : Sandy Park Stadium, Exeter The penalty notice states that it was parked in a manner whereby the driver became liable for a parking charge. The notice states date was 02/04/2018 entry time 17:59 and exit time 19:31 total duration 01:32. Charge £80. The access road is shared to gym and Exeter chiefs Sandy Park stadium. It shows car leaving (doesn’t appear to be in car park itself) and shows car where I pulled up to pick him up (which arguably is adjacent to gym and in front of stadium but not in any parking bays itself) My husband entered the site at 17:59 to
  23. On Dec 21st at a Kent railway station I parked in an area that has always to my knowledge been free to park (I have lived in the area all my life) Its residential and has diagonal bays. Upon my return I have a Penalty Notice stuck to the wind screen of my car. I have checked and signage is at best very difficult to see. I did some reading and am awaiting a letter from Indigo, to date 07/02/18 I have received nothing and am wondering what happens next. The vehicle ticketed is a company lease and is through my personal business. Any help would be apprec

  25. Hello everyone, Yesterday I parked my car near the Camden Underground and paid two hours parking through my mobile. I was planning of taking underground for a short trip which normally takes one hour but due to Camden Town underground station was shut and the roads around the Camden station were shut, I ended up 30 minutes late back to my car and got a penalty charge note. I never had any parking fine in the UK for many years and I always pay for my parking. I was unable to extend my parking time due to the restriction of maximum two hours of parking at once.
