    • Ok thanks guys for all the help & advice I think I will go the DRO option but will open a new bank account somewhere else first etc.  The only other things im little worried about is reading on the DRO it says about I wont be able to apply for credit but what about things like my car insurance as thats classed as credit paying it monthly Plus they say i must not have assets or car worth over £1,000 so what about things like my car worth around 2.5k and as said before when my father passed away he left me his camper that I cant part with its worth about 4k and what about things in house and jewellery etc ?? Can they come to house and check and so on
    • threads merged  please keep to one thread per issue.   dx  
    • read it proprly.. it doesn't say WILL anything and original creditors don't do court as they don't want the judge delving into their business model nor the bad publicity.   as for the FOS you just have to let it run. yours is a very short time since yo put it into them typically it always takes 6-9mts normally before they move on anything though they usually send you an ACK they have the complaint.        
    • Since the last post on this thread I have sent a complaint to the FOS but have not heard anything from them as yet either, I'm guessing they're rather snowed under and on reduced staff so no real surprise.   Still had nothing approaching help from lending stream but today they emailed me default notices for the loans, again demanding I phone them and pay up in full or they will begin court proceedings.   Any advice as to how I should proceed please?
    • Hi,   I received two PCNs in October 2019 from Havering Council. All the below applies to both PCNs, as the correspondences were at the same time:   Fast forward to February 2020, I file witness statements on grounds that I made representations within 28 days but did not receive a rejection notice.   The TEC cancelled charges.   Havering write to me asking for supporting evidence of representations that I made.   I email them screenshots with timestamps of the representations.   In early March Havering reply to me by email 'confirming receipt of email and both cases are now on hold pending an investigation. Please allow time for a full response to be sent.'   Fast forward to 18th June Havering write to me the attached:  Havering Charge Certificate.pdf   Now, it seems as though the sender of this letter is not up to date with both cases and is unaware of the TEC's decisions, as well as the email correspondence.   My questions are, 1) What should I do next? and 2) Is there a way to use their misstep to avoid paying for the PCN entirely?   Thank you.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hi all,

 

Sorry for the repost but I replied in the template thread and realised it might not get seen!

 

I recently received a ticket for £75 from Parking Control Services . I was parked in a residential complex visiting a friend for the night and was on a curb with no lines, there were signs but not easily visible from where I was parked.

 

The ticket should be payed within 7days or it goes up to £150 + £50 administration! Crooks. The problem I have is that it is a company car and I don't want them getting the registered keeper involved i.e. my boss!!

By writing to them stating I was he driver am I in some way admitting liability? Also should |I include a cheque anyway and state that I need evidence before they cash the cheque? Also what if nobody is in the office on sat/sun to receive the cheque on recorded delivery? would they have the right to add the extra costs on even though a delivery has been attempted?

 

Help Would be appreciated and the sooner the better as the clock is ticking hehe

 

Thanks!!!!!!!

YES.

 

But just send a letter to your company Sec explaining that you signed a contract for being responsible for fines and not made up charges from a set of thieves.

Hi all,

 

I recently received a ticket for £75 from Parking Control Services . I was parked in a residential complex visiting a friend for the night and was on a curb with no lines, there were signs but not easily visible from where I was parked.

Yep, crooks, absolutely right!

 

The problem I have is that it is a company car and I don't want them getting the registered keeper involved i.e. my boss!!

Can't really avoid that, so speak to your boss and tell him this is a [problem] invoice and you have no intention of paying and neither should he.

 

By writing to them stating I was he driver am I in some way admitting liability?

No you won't be admitting anything about the incident. It may get them to write to you instead of your company

Also should |I include a cheque anyway and state that I need evidence before they cash the cheque?

No! No! NOOO! THEY'LL CASH IT!!

 

Also what if nobody is in the office on sat/sun to receive the cheque on recorded delivery? would they have the right to add the extra costs on even though a delivery has been attempted?

They've got no right to charge yyou in the first place, so no right to add "other" charges either. But as you're not going to pay them it doesn't matter about their charges.

 

Help Would be appreciated and the sooner the better as the clock is ticking hehe

OK, finish reading this thread, then go to bed and never think about paying PCS again.

 

Thanks!!!!!!!

Right... My boss is fine with me fighting this and not paying but doesn't want anything to come back on him. I'm going to send a letter stating I was the driver at the time of the alleged contravention so all further correspondence should be through me then the template letter from the forum - is this a wise idea since most of the advice I have read states don't contact them?

 

My question is what kind of reply can I expect from them and who else will they get involved? What's the worst case scenario tha can happen to me? Will my credit rating be affected? Sorry if you've answered these questions a million times I haven't had a great deal of time to research.

 

Many thanks!

Ignore them. There's no point in sending any letters at all.

 

Worst case is that they will issue court proceedings against the registered keeper of the vehicle, who would, quite rightly, inform them that no privity of contract existed.

 

Should your boss inform them that you were the driver, they might issue proceedings against you, which you could defend quite easily, as even if a contract could be shown to exist, the charges constitute a penalty charge, and are therefore unlawful.

 

None of the above is likely, as PPCs don;t like going to court, given the additional cost to them, and the fact that they have no legal basis for their charges.

 

There have been extremely rare cases where judgment has been found in favour of the PPC - notably due to no shows, and / or **** poor defence. If this were to happen, the only way that anyone's credit rating would be affected would be if they refused, or were unable, to make payment in response to a court order.

Unfortunately my boss doesn't want to be involved, so I either write a letter now or wait for them to contact him and he will tell them it was me driving does it make much difference which way I go?

 

You have mentioned that undefended court cases are the ones that get ruled in favour of the PCC's what exactly constitutes a defense?

 

Also there isn't any date of contravention on the ticket, just date of issue....is this relevant at all?

Quote from back of ticket:

 

Administration/Lawfull issue

This parking notice has been lawfully issued and the collection procedure will be processed in accordance with the administration of justice act 1970

 

How funny!
