    • At least you got it over with.  Just wait for the court order to come so we can see what the judge has put,  but you will have to start making payments in line with his order from whatever date is on it.    
    • No direct answer for you I am afraid but their actions are surprising. Although banks can and do question unexpected large payments into bank accounts (large relative to what usually comes in) you wouldn't expect a payment from HMRC to be considered a suspicious transaction under money-laundering rules. And you've done the right thing, gone into branch with ID and proof of the source of the payment. Hopefully they will soon unfreeze your account.Sady in all banks local managers have virtually no say in what happens, it's all down to head office fraud and money laundering team.   Their suggestion that student accounts don't allow you to work is surely nonsense. The requirement in their t&c is that you must be on a full time course, not that you can't work as well. Their t&c say " You must be aged 18 or over and studying on a full-time UCAS registered course of two or more  years’ duration...". Nothing in the t&c about not being allowed to work as well, they made it up. It would be a strange student a/c that said you couldn't work ever - Nationwide must know  that most students need to take part-time/holiday jobs to pay their way through university (and have done for as long as student accounts have existed - at least 50 years!)
    • but no judgements yet..urm… think about it..
    • I could never thank you enough Ell-enn - And would never have been able to get through this without your help, support & guidance... Thank you so so much!   I found it all quite traumatic and distressing today - I managed to make myself look somewhat presentable for court and tried to stay as positive as I could, but had a pretty bad panic attack and broke down crying on the way to court, which melted my make-up and I felt very dizzy and unwell. The security staff were helpful and a lady appeared at desk in waiting room (usher I think) and told me that the rep for other side had been there all day, but had popped out for lunch. She said when he gets back he may want to talk to me. I felt like I was going to projectile vomit all over the waiting room. My head started pounding with a severe headache and I was worried I might pass out. He waltzed into the waiting room and stood towering over me at over 6 foot, but only looked about 12 years old.... Very cocky and stood too closely in my personal space. He told me to follow him into a private room for conference and I refused and told him I would prefer for the judge to decide.    Shortly after we were called into the judge. I don't recall his name but I don't think it was the same judge who issued the original possession order and he looked a little bit like Judge Rinder. I broke down crying again soon after sitting down and had to apologise to the judge, who seemed sympathetic. I felt so unwell, embarrassed and humiliated. I then had a panic attack during the hearing and was struggling to breathe - I must have looked such a state.    The judge asked what date the eviction was due to happen (Monday) and then asked me if I had any offers on the house yet and spoke to me briefly, but I could barely speak due to crying. He asked me about my expected return to work and I said I had suffered a nervous breakdown and wanted to be able to get back to work as soon as possible, that my GP had singed me off sick until mid-August and that I was currently on several medications which also affect my ability to work. He asked me if I wanted to say anything else and there was so much I felt I could have put across better, but just didn't feel able to and couldn't think clearly, so said no.   The judge said to the rep for Britannia that he felt concerned about this, but not sure exactly what he meant by that and then the other side stated they had clear instructions to take possession, that I had only paid them £10 and disagreed with my proposal to sell the property myself. The judge asked him if my offer of £50 towards arrears fell in line with Norgan case and the other side said yes. The rep stated that whatever it is I do for a living, my proposals could not be taken into account, as I had no proof or indication of my current income/expenditure.   The judge then came back to me and said he wouldn't be able to agree to more time for property to sell, but would have been able to do more if I had an offer in place / sale agreed. He asked me about my work and for a clearer indication of when I would be able to resume payments / pay a monthly amount towards the arrears. I said that I also had a spinal injury & had had surgery on my spine a few years ago and it was due to complications from that that I had initially been unable to work & fell into arrears and then went on to say that it was Britannias' actions that had caused my breakdown and he did snap at me a bit then and told me he didn't want to hear what Britannia had done, so I apologised. He asked me again when I thought I would be able to resume payments and I asked if September would be ok. I was shaking and having a pretty bad panic attack at that point.    The rep from other side then jumped in and said she needs to pay us straight away, and the judge then stated that he would make an order for me to make repayments from August and suspend the order on those terms. He said if I fell into difficulties again we would be back here again and said that they may be able to help me again if that happened. He asked if that was ok for me and I felt pressured to agree as I didn't feel able to do any other.... I am now now worried about my ability to do this, but obviously relieved at the same time. I think the rep for the other side was a bit p**sed off... He was quite ignorant and I feel traumatised...I feel sorry for the judge having to see me in state like that.   As soon as we had left the room the rep came right up behind me calling my name and told me he needed my updated phone number so that he could contact me. He looked a little bit psychopathic at that point and I told him I didn't want to speak to him and walked off.... I was so dazed I went in the wrong direction when I left the court building and it wasn't until I looked in mirror later that I realised I had tissue paper stuck all over my face from where I had been drying my tears... I HATE Britannia for making me go through that, especially under such poor health.... Which they have caused me!   Thank you again so much for all of your kind wishes and assistance - Especially Ell-enn, as without your help I would be facing Bailiff eviction next week - And still won't sleep until that time has passed.... xx         
    • Just thought I would update, Unite the union have now intervened although initially at a low level.   They have contacted HR at the firm asking them to deal with it in order to stop Unite getting involved

A number of the regular posters on this site have unearthed evidence that employees from Combined Parking Solutions aka CPS are lurking on the site. They read all postings and attempt to identify the driver from the information provided.

 

While this is not the end of the world, as they still have to produce evidence of their charges being valid and not penalty charges, and also that their alleged contracts do not breach the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts, it does mean the loss of your first line of defense.

 

In light of this if you have a "Parking Ticket"/Invoice from this firm then I suggest you do not use their name in any of your postings. If you do use the name in your postings then keep things in general terms.

 

It may pay you to use the name of another big firm such as Euro Car Park, NCP etc in your post as the advice will be the same but it will be impossible to link you with the details.

 

If you post any copies of invoices or letters that you receive then please make sure you blank out the following

 

1: Serial Number

2: Your Vehicle Registration Mark

3. Location

4. Date

5. Time

6. Letterhead

It is a great tribute to this site (and Pepipoo) that perky and cronies take time out from hammering hard working motorists and/or setting "landmark" legal precedents to troll around. It means the site is hurting their business. It also means they are worrying that the tide is beginning to turn and that drivers are finally getting it - you should not pay. The laughable thing is that perky has started this himself with his challenge to all and sundry to come and take him on. So not necessarily a negative thing and fully endorse your please for posters not to reveal anything that might identify them. Why make it easy for them?

I concur wholeheartedly with the above. This company is incredibly persistant in chasing its tickets at £85 a time. The amount of time and trouble taken does not appear to tie into any known business model, it is almost as if the company is trying to prove a point against members of this site.

I would say that all parking companies read these sites and similar ones, they would be silly not to.

It does appear that this perky individual has stirred up some debate and it seems sites are somewhat scared of him to give him so much notariety and publicity.

Scared of him????????

 

Why would anyone be scared of a toothless dog, people have no reason at all to fear him he is NOT in any position to legally enforce any of his tickets.

 

If he has the time to waste sending numerous letters (all of which are actually not worth the paper they are written on) then he is obviously one sad sad individual.

Prove a point against members of this site, members of Pepipoo and anyone else who dares challenge them. You only have to look at the personal attacks on the website against a Pepipoo member (including weirdly publishing his photo) to realise these people live up to all the finest PPC traditions. Although other PPCs seem to get on with it while CPS trolls and bleats on about mythical court victories. Why is that I wonder? Maybe the business model needs addressing as you say if staff are spending large amounts of time trolling consumer websites in an attempt to stoke up arguments.

The photo on their site is weird, I have to say but the story behind it is quite amazing.

If you type in the individuals name or his 2 user ids they appear at the top of google, that's also weird !!

I presume its true as if anyone wrote that about me and it wasn't true I would be straight to court to get it removed then sue them for costs and as perky is not a company he would be personally liable to pay it.

about mythical court victories

 

Has any of these ever been substaniated with the court, or he still making up bovine excrement stories like he does on other forums.

 

As I for won, would contact the court in question to ask for the result of the hearing/case.

 

Companies and management like these rouges have nothing better to do other than trawl public forums, it must be that the business isn't doing that well, and enough work to keep them busy so spend time trying to intimidate people going on forums seeking help and advice.

 

What i say to this kind action though, "What goes around, comes around" and one day, Perkins may need the help of a forum like this, the phrase "Burning all your bridges" comes to mind.

Are the court victories and transcripts on the website mythical ??

If they are then that's serious and the police would be interested in a person forging court docs / transcripts .. I have not seen any English court orders and only 1 Scottish decree but the ones on the site all seem to be stamped

It don't make them anymore legitimate as they are very poorly defended cases that do not in anyway test the claims of the PPC.

 

He would not publish details of a properly defended case as that claim would be unsuccessful. That would not be good for business.

Or any judgement won by default.

 

Why doesn't he list all current and future hearings some where for people to then decide themselves how sucessful he is, its not as though it is private information, court listings are public domain.

This is getting really boring now. There is no Oldham case, other than in perky's fertile imagination. Yet scottish mark appears to be hell bent on proving there is. Far too much of this forum is being devoted to a very unimportant and peripheral PPC so can I suggest we leave it at that and get back to helping people out.

I just wanted to have facts and evidence before making a statement, sorry if that goes against the principles of the forum.

I do not know what courttel is and nor does google.

I am happy to agree with the masses and say the post was false without knowing but if that is the way forward then let's go for that.

that's the site I looked at, courtserve but oldham court does not appear to be on there.

how have you got the listing from there if the court does not supply to the site ?

Share this post

Share on other sites

Because Courtserve is NOT Courtel, Courtel Communications supplies data to Courtserve, and if Courtserve choose not to list ALL courts, then thats a matter for them, Courtel receive listings from EVERY court, as per contract from the MoJ and HMCS, the courts themselves update Courtel twice daily, and Courtel distrubute the information.

 

From your post, I guess it was an attempt to question my integrity, I beleive I have explained to you now, not that I need to have.

Sorry hobbie, I was not meaning to question your integrity but it reads that oldham does not participate in the scheme so thats all I had to go on

if you have checked and no parking company is listed on Monday then the post is obviously false

It'll be funny when some cretin from this board has their backside caned in court by CPS

 

By CPS or "The CPS"?

 

As if Compined Parking Solutions cained my backside, I'd be reminding of them Assault Against Persons Act 1861, and then I'd be laughing MY backside off when The CPS cained them in court :D


Thanks
