    • If you are absolutely certain* that you were parked OK, write a letter of complaint to the Headteacher and copy in the Chair of the school governors.   If you or the car were identifiable in any way from the photo (eg visible registration number, driver's face etc) I would very politely write that you resent the untrue suggestion that you had parked/had stopped/were waiting in a way that contravened any traffic regulations, and that you are sure that the school will understand that you would like an apology and a correction to be printed in the next newsletter.  (You can also clearly state that you were identifiable from the photo because other parents have mentioned it to you).   See if that works.   You don't want to go to court for defamation as you'll need access to about £10k in fees before you get out of bed.  You just want an apology and a correction.  If what you've told us is accurate, I don't see any reasonable school failing to say sorry.     *My wife is a former school governor and my experience listening to her is that very very few parents actually understand the meaning of the no stopping/no waiting signs and road markings outside schools.  Don't complain unless you are sure you weren't stopped where you shouldn't have been.
    • And they haven't offered a speed awareness course either?  (Have you done one in the last three years or is this in Scotland?)   And is one of the notices for 34 in a 30?  As Man in the Middle says, that ought to be below the level at which they take action.   (And sorry - I don't want to appear preachy - but...  there don't have to be any warnings or signs or lines on the road to advise you of the presence of speed cameras.  If you get away with an exceptional hardship argument you will need to stick to speed limits in future - whether you know there are cameras there or not.  NB Don't know if this applies to you, but most 30 mph limits are restricted roads with a system of streetlighting and don't even need speed limit signs - you are assumed to know this from the Highway Code).
    • It's up to you if you want to pay £300 you don't owe plus whatever Unicorn Food Tax with no basis in law whatsoever that they will have made up in the Letter Before Claim.   We'd prefer you didn't.   But you have received a LBC so it's make your mind up time.   So please    - post up photos of the signage in the dark that you'll have taken two months ago (post 14)    - post up details of planning permission for their signs you'll have found out after you got onto the council, again two months ago (again post 14)    - also let us know if you agree with Brassnecked's excellent letter or if you'd like to tweak bits depending on what you've found out    - upload the LBC.  Some of them are appallingly drafted and invariably contain Unicorn Food Tax which is all useful extra ammo    - also, where are you living now (post 35) and are you comfortable with legal communications arriving at your parents'?   If you look in our PPC Successes thread at the top of the page, you will see 275 times these cheats have been seen off with their tails between their legs (and all had the same "well known legal companies" (ho! ho!) on hand).  In reality 275 times is a massive underestimate, in all 275 cases there was a "moment of victory" IYSWIM where the PPC were thrashed in court or discontinued a claim or were called off by a supermarket chain, etc., etc.  There will have been at least that number again where they were told to Foxtrot Oscar and then crawled back under their stone.  They are eminently beatable but logically when you're in legal dispute you have to put some graft in to beat the other party.

Yawn......Link Financial STILL haven't phoned me back :rolleyes: I've been sitting beside me phone in anticipation for no reason ;) Do you think, perhaps, they may have been telling porkie pies about the bailiffs?

 

HOW DARE YOU!!!!!!

 

Link are members of the CSA and as such abide by the rules. They would not threaten something like that.

 

 

 

Oh look its another flying pig:D

Just posted this on another thread following the news that Aktiv Kapital is about to make 40 monkeys redundant, but as it is Fred-style cheekiness I thought I'd put it on here as well:

 

Some things just have to be done.

Before you criticise another man you should first walk a mile in his shoes. Then, when you criticise him, you'll be a mile away and he won't have any shoes on.

 

Don't get me confused with somebody knowledgeable by all those green blobs. I got most of them by making people laugh.

I had a voicemail left by Link Financial asking my OH to phone them, so he did. We haven't made a payment for a couple of months due to circumstances, which they are well aware of. Anyway, they told my OH he would have to do an I&E form but he refused. They also told him they were going to send a bailiff round. Now usually he would argue with them. This time though, he asked them when they would be turning up so he knows to put the kettle on. He's learning.

 

Anyway, I wasn't happy with their idle threat, so I phoned them back (I know I shouldn't but I was in the right mood for them).

 

LF - Link Financial

Me - (gave my details) Yeah, my Husband has just been on the phone and he was told that you will be sending the bailiffs round.

LF - Ok

Me - Can I ask you to put this in writing, as I do not appreciate the threat when I know you will have no court order.

LF - I'm sorry, what would you like me to put in writing?

ME - I would like you to put it in writing that you are planning on sending bailiffs round without a valid court order. I can then pass this on to the OFT.

LF - Sorry, who?

Me - The Office of Fair Trading.

LF - Right........what I will do is pass this on to the person your Husband spoke to and I will ask him to call you straight back to explain.

Me - Thanks. However, I will be leaving for work soon, so if you can get him to leave a message stating which court dealt with the bailiff issue, the claiment number and what date I am to expect the bailiffs at my home.

LF - I will give you the court telephone number if you like?

Me - No thanks - I don't want to waste their time as they will be looking for a non-existant order.

LF - Ok.....

Me - As my husband has told you, when the bailiffs turn up, they are more than welcome to have a cuppa, but that's it really.

LF - .......

Me - Thanks then

(I hang up)

 

I'm still waiting for my phone call back :rolleyes:

 

Sounds not unlike one of my creditors who said they would 'fast track me to a bailiff'... and I said 'not without a court order' and they slammed the phone down. That call was in September and I still haven't had the threatened visit, some silly letters and an email or two but no bailiff.

Just slightly off the track, when I had a war with RBoS about illegal charges, and had to threaten them with a County Court Summons to UK Branch ( this is a couple of years back) their muppet in Edinburgh said that if I was going to take legal action, I had to issue the sumall claims summons to their Edinburgh office! DURRR !

Fundamental lack of knowledge ( or perhaps intentional) re English and Scottish Civil Law

Perhaps we should now merge Mr Ton's other thread to make up for the lost numbers.

Perhaps it wasn't me then. I also seem to have recoverd most of my 300 missing posts. Onwards and upwards to 3000.

I'm glad that by being united you were able to get the thread back.

 

don't see why little old me was picked on?

 

anyway, I don't care, I suppose a post had to be deleted by a 'nobody' to make it look like something was being done without upsetting the main people
