About Me


  1. If you have had a success against any of the PPC's then post a link to your thread here.
  2. I wanted to report a success against UKPS that started in Dec 2018 and was concluded today. I did do a bit of reading through this site for guidance though so thanks for that! in Dec 2018 a family member reversed onto a private road in Coventry and waited about 1 minute or so to collect their partner. Meanwhile the owner was loitering and waiting to catch anyone on his land with photos. 2 photos were taken about 40 seconds apart. With my help I disputed the charge stating that the driver had not "parked" but had only stopped momentarily to pick up a passenger. I did no
  3. any advise welcome. I received a PCN from a PPC. I appealed to them and got standard "get lost" template response In this appeal I told the PPC to stop processing my private data as they had obtained it unlawfully from the DVLA due to the non compliance of POFA, BPA CoP and DVLA contract. I appealed on fact that PCN not PoFA compliant, not BPA CoP compliant and single sign with t&cs was not visible. then Appealed to POPLA on above points and many others such as no contract, etc, etc POPLA upheld my appeal without addressing any of the points except the first on
  4. Had a note from Royal Mail regarding and item of mail that had unpaid postage by sender .and RM wanted £2 for unpaid postage to deliver. My suspicions were raised as the note used almost my full name, so I sat on it until the 18 day deadline for the item to RTS Had to visit the delivery office this morning to collect a couple of other items , and the postie allowed me sight of the letter awaiting me to shell out £2 for delivery. Surprise Surprise the letter bares all the hallmarks of being from a PPC , window envelope , no return address on the back ,my full name as if li

    NHS PPC Fraud!

    Everyone please be aware of a NHS FRAUD which they say is "legal" and there is no defence! For many years I have had an NHS PPC (pre payment card) for my regular prescriptions. I was not aware that on my 60th Birthday, I would no longer have to pay for prescriptions... But the NHS did, and so in their kindness CANCELLED my PPC arrangement PRIOR to my Birthday (they say they will do this if your renewal is less than 9 months from your birthday). They say they wrote to me in Feb - but I did not see any letter from them them until April / May! They say they "wrote to me".

The suspicion is that the cowboy clampers have now become the cowboy finers and cowboy invoicers."
  7. Hi all, Looking for some advice regarding a parking charge received in an NCP car park for having an expired ticket. I park there every weekday for work, I pay for 2 hours as I'm in the office usually for about an hour before heading out again, but on this day I was delayed leaving and returned 20 minutes after it had expired to find one of their lovely bogus charges. I received the ticket stuck to my windscreen, with the time of year and seemingly countless work and personal life issues I didn't get round to writing an appeal. The Notice to Keeper arrived in du
  8. Hello All, A 'PPC' who's identity shall remain undisclosed for the time being, I've had all the letters from them also letters from the 'pet debt collectors' now it has gone down the route of their 'Solicitors ' This where it gets interesting the 'Solicitors ' have been sending the letters to my old address , I then had two at my new address, I have been back to my old address ( It was my Fathers before he passed away) Lo and behold I have a MCOL from them to my old address with them knowing full well my new address, I have acknowledged the MCOL
  9. Not really into conspircy theories etc but it seems strange that a decision was given against Beavis with PE winning the court case especially as PE is owned by Capita and Capita is really cosy with the government who pays judges to make decisions. I wonder if some one somewhere helped the judge to make the decision that affects consumers?
  10. http://leaderlive.co.uk/news/153109/parking-enforcer-swaps-sides-to-fight-penalties.aspx it's absolutely disgusting that he STILL profits off the misfortune of drivers that got caught out by PPC's. More so that the local media is actually advertising his business.
  11. Missus got 'just the ticket' from euro in a hospital car park today for 'Not Parked In Marked Bay'. She believed she was well within a bay - other cars similarly parked, and a (faded) white line behind the car. I'm the registered keeper, and she's a named driver on our insurance policy. I'm not totally up to speed with current protocols. Do I 'appeal' straight away to invoke POPLA procedure, or await NTK from them? If this needs to become a separate thread, by all means do your stuff. And thx in advance for any help in putting this one to rest
  12. Hello, Just before christmas 2013 I got a parking charge notice put on my windscreen after parking in an allocated parking space for a small industrial unit that was unoccupied (To Let signs up, chained up doors). The site was approximately 15 small adjoined units built around a car park with about 50 spaces, each unit having a number of allocated spots. I believed that as the unit was not in use, nobody would even notice, let alone care if I parked there for 10 minutes. The space was not directly outside the unit and I was not blocking any access. The car park was on
  13. Having used this forum in the old days of ignore, I am trying to assist a friend with the new PFoA rules The reg keeper has just received a final demand, they categorically state that this is the first letter they have received. it's dated 26/11/2014 and franked 02/12 sanitized copy attached, any advice would be welcome on the next steps to take
  14. I was surfing on Scoop (http://www.scoop.it/t/lacef-news) today and come across this story your thoughts please especially the final few words Automatic number plate recognition allows cameras to read car number plates. Invented in Britain in the 1970s, its use by police was followed up by private car park operators who use it because cameras do all the work. Fewer, if any, attendants are needed. Cameras are linked to computers which recognise numbers and letters on a plate, check cars coming into a car park and then recognise it when it leaves. If the driver has not paid, or
  15. Hi all I'm aware this has been talked about a lot here but just need some confirmation. I got a PCN on Saturday (6th December) in the Staples/Maplin car park in Leicester. Didn't see any signs telling me about rules etc but they were probably there. The reasons for my PCN states reasons '1' and '6': 1 - "Unauthorised Parking" and 6 - "Did not use Car Park Providers Premises and went elsewhere at the time of issue of the parking charge notice" I did actually go into Maplins and have a receipt to prove it. the time of my receipt says 13:06 but the PCN was issued at
  16. New thread for discussing (possible) PPC signage and website non compliance with the Companies Act 2006. I've asked that a couple of posts be moved here from another thread, and we can then continue the discussion without hijacking another thread
  17. Taxpayers are spending up to £600,000 a year to subsidise the cost of private parking firms getting drivers’ details from the DVLA so they can fine motorists. And that total subsidy pot may have topped £5million over the last eight years. New figures obtained from a Freedom of Information request reveal that the DVLA loses 34p every time a parking company applies for the details of a car’s registered keeper. The subsidy arises because the private firms pay £2.50 for documentation, which costs the DVLA £2.84 to handle. This year the agency has received 1.8million applica
  18. Good morning everyone, In the small town where I live with have a branch of a quite famous german supermarket (with Parking eye cameras) and two other supermarkets both with their own PPC's. I have recently helped a couple of people defend Parking Eye, speculative Invoices with 100% success, However, I would like to setup all three companies and detail the process of getting the charges dropped in the local media, My idea is this: 1. Overstay the Parking Eye park and get an Invoice, also double dip this park with witnesses present to record me times of arrival and departure
  19. Hi, please be gentle with me, if I am asking stupid questions. I had an accident in May 2013, which resulted in my having to cease payments for some time with MBNA, they put me on 0% for the time, I then started to make payments as agreed and remain on 0% due to ill health I noted that they sent me a letter stating PPC had been cancelled dated after my accident, I didn't even know I had it, but started asking for further information, they initially said they could't tell me the date months and months of going backwards and forwards, they have sent me all the commun
  20. Rarely audited, rarely inspected – no wonder private car parks are a rip-off [8 April 2013] The woeful level of inspection of signage at car parks has been laid bare by an admission from the British Parking Association that its annual audit of 163 private parking members includes a mandatory minimum of only ONE car park being inspected per member. So of the roughly 17,000 private car parks in the UK, all festooned with signs and markings, it’s quite possible that only about 200 are ever seen by the BPA’s supposedly independent external scrutineers, who have admitted to P
  21. I got an invoice from a PPC, I was looking forward to making them pay a POPLA fee so I sent an appeal to the PPC claiming there was no valid contract and they wrote back saying they will not be chasing anymore and will write it off.
  22. Hello, RK has a PPC taking them to court, all initial correspondance was ignored until court papers dropped on the mat of the RK. The infringement is vehicle using disabled bay without blue badge however passengers in the vehicle were disabled. A defence has been suggested to submit re: HMRC v VCS as it is unlikely PPC has it in contract permission to prosecute on landowners behalf. No evidence (cctv or otherwise) has been seen by defendant yet so no proof of driver etc. No admittance of who was driving has been made by RK. RK is slightly concerned due to lack of exper
  23. I have noticed that up to now the general advice for a ticket from any of these is to ignore and since last October not much has changed apart from the provision of an appeals process via POPLA - although any decision made is not binding on the motorist. If however eeveryone challenged their tickets - I accept what we see here is the minority - with the insistence of taking it to POPLA. let us examine a few scenarios. 1 - lets say 300 people write in and appeal to the PPC's better nature and are all turned down, The cost to the PPC at this stage is the cost of stationery and postage - cos
  24. Reading through Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 regarding parking, section 7 & 8 refer to a creditor. Can you be a creditor without a credit licence? Would a PPC have a credit licence?
  25. Hi all Would you Adam and Eve it!!!!!!!!!!! Last week I did a job for a customer in our town centre and he contacted the Council's parking control and organized me parking there for the week - No problem right... WRONG Turns out the car park I was in, at a supermarket across the road, is operated by a Private Parking Company. NOT THE FREAKING COUNCIL- so today I received number 2 "speculative invoice" of, what I expect, will be 5 in total...........Don't say it, I know, yes, ok. Shall I follow suit and ignore them all, or do I write individual letters as per the templates
