    • Hi all,   Just an update with contractual terms. These terms are from a contract at a similar time to when Tracey started as we think they have changed since.   The contract reads as follows:   Termination of employment  Xxxxxxx (Nursery) will provide written notice of termination of your employment in accordance with statutory requirement (currently 1 week’s notice for each year of continuous service, up to a maximum 12 week’s notice).   Once you have successfully completed your probationary period for the company you are required to give 1 month’s written notice of termination of employment.   Regards   Matt             
    • Thanks for helping with the post;   Still waiting for a reply from the DPD.
    • I thank the Consumer Action Group Members for getting me this far in my case which is still in progress.   Situation: The Court has reversed earlier permission for me to rely on witness summaries.    The question upon which I am seeking help, please,  is - do I need to bother myself as to why the Court has reversed permission to rely on witness summaries?  If so, what line of logic or law can might I follow because clearly, the Court has said one thing and then another a few weeks later, of its own motion, the Court has reversed the earlier decision. I find this development quite extraordinary in the sense that as a result of being granted permission earlier, I served the three Witness Summons which had the Court stamp.   Background Having given me permission to serve 'Witness Summons' which I served on 3 hostile witnesses several weeks ago, the Court has now reversed it's earlier decision, and refused me permission to rely on 'witness summaries' pursuant to paragraph 32.9(2), citing that I have not shown steps taken to obtain witness statements from the 3 hostile witnesses.  I however, made two attempts to talk to the hostile witnesses who have been non responsive and I can evidence this.   I would be immensely grateful for some steer from Forum Members, please.
    • Pubs all seem to be doing a roaring trade around here. It does make me feel uncomfortable but At least they are finally making some money. Our area, the South West never really got hit badly by the pandemic. Wiltshire has regularly seeing zero confirmed cases and deaths. So we will have to see how opening pubs really pans out!     
    • Thanks for filling in the forum sticky and well done on reading up.  The more info. we all take in, the more we know what the real legal position is and how to fight sharks like CEL.   As you'll have seen, CEL are one of the most dishonest and greediest of the PPCs.  If you had indisputable proof that your car was on Mars at the time, they'd find a way to reject your appeal!  Sadly POPLA has become more & more useless, as your experience shows.  Instead of managing the car park in a professional manner, it's highly likely that CEL don't illuminate the signs at night deliberately in order to catch out motorists like yourself.   The good news is that the only person who can make you pay this "debt" is a judge, after a court case.  So from now on ignore any begging letters from CEL and/or their rent-a-threat DCAs, but do not ignore a Letter Before Action/Claim which is a formal notice of intention to start court proceedings.  However, don't waste your time while ignoring them, build a case.  Like dx says, look up the planning permission.  If the KFC is local to you, go back in the evening and get pix of their pathetic signage.  Please post up what you wrote in your appeal too.   As a belt & braces approach, get on to KFC and demand they cancel the ticket.  Show all the proof you were a genuine customer and point out that you stayed an extra 19 minutes because you were consuming more food & drink!  However, what we often find is that the bod who runs the local branch often doesn't have much power, so don't faff around.  If the local branch don't cancel within 48 hours get on to to the area manager, and if you get no joy there in 48 hours go to CEO level.   It's highly likely that if you had complained to KFC straight away and ignored CEL's kangaroo court procedure that the matter would have been resolved there & then, but hey, what is done is done and you still have a great chance of seeing off these fleecers.

    • 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

CCS Collect put on to me by G24 Parking

I received a parking charge notice from G24 Ltd Parking services, a few months ago now.

 

They supplied photographs of a car entering and exiting the car park in question in excess of the alloted time. The car was not depicted as parked, which is the crux of their claim. They demanded £40 if paid within 14 days and that raised to £90 after that.

 

I have repeatedly asked them in writing for photographic proof that this car was PARKED over the 60 minute time limit and they have ignored my requests.

 

The last reply I received from them, again, ignored the request for evidence and requested that I sent them receipts for the items purchased in the store next to which the car park is situated.

 

I have checked the parking notice at this car park and at no point, not even in the small print does it say that the car park is for sole use of customers of the staples next to it. So it sounds like they were clutching at staws.

 

I sent a reply stating that by refusing to prove, using photographic evidence with dates and times, that the car in question was parked over the allotted time they obviously had no support to their claim and therefore they should not contact me again.

 

It has been a few weeks since I had heard from them, and this morning I receive a letter from CCSCollect - Debt Collectors stating I owe them £90 within 7 days. This letter is scare mongering.

 

What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty?

The evidence I have received from G24 Ltd has not convinced me that the claim is legally binding.

 

Can anyone give me any advice on this matter?

I agree. These stupid cowboy charges will be impossible to enforce through the Courts. they can only recover the cost of 1 Hour's parking, if they are VERY lucky and get a Judge who doesn't know anything

Even so, they can only proceed against the driver.

Only one of those parking firms has ever been known to try it on in court, and it isn't G24. They lose every time as well :rolleyes:

Oh dear, must be new to the game then:lol::lol:

It is up to them to prove you don't have the receipts! Clowns.

I would go back and take some photographs, for your peace of mind more than anything, so I assume that it was private property you parked on, or was it council owned and enforced by this circus outfit?

 

Ignore them, fire off the no debt is acknowledge letter to CCS collect, and tell them to take you to court.

Do not worry. Ignore them. What you had was an unenforcable invoice from a PPC. When you ignore them they pass it on to thier DCA who will send a few threatograms-up to 3 or 4-. They disappear after that and move on to someone with a little less knowledge who will pay up :wink:

If your still unsure go to the parking forum and read the many stories regarding this matter :)

Report them to Trading Standards locally or via Consumer Direct.

 

Sometimes these things don't go away, unless you report it. They could continue writing to you and possibly send doorstep collectors or threaten to do so.

 

There have been cases where people have been taken to court, but this is usually the large supermarkets and fast food outlets that do this. I have read a few cases, where people have not paid the original amount and months later the amount has massively increased. I can't see how this is legal? Sounds like extortion to me.


We could do with some help from you.

You would wise to report them to Trading Standards, who should hopefully get them off your back.

 

You can do this by phoning Consumer Direct.

I have a disabled persons' blue badge. I took my car for a service and received a loan car. Drove into town and parked in a car park in the specified disabled bay. No fee payable.

 

However, when I returned, I had a parking ticket. I managed to 'catch' the attendant who said, that the badge could belong to anyone and they now check up to see if your tax disc has 'disabled' on it, which of course my loan car did not, I showed my photo on the reverse side of the blue badge but she wasn't interested.

 

When I got back to the garage I had to inform them as it was one of their loan cars which had received the ticket.

 

Luckily for me, they telephoned the parking company's head office who said I had to send in photocopies of 'everything' together with a letter from the garage to confirm why I was driving one of their cars, and hence why it did not have 'disabled' on the tax disc.!!!

 

So now they have copies of some of my personal information!


Every journey begins with a single step :):)

 

Please note: I have no qualifications in this area - my advice is learned from the wonderful members of this Forum. Thanks to you all for your help.

The only person entitled to your Personal Finance details is a Judge not a DCA

 

Move all banking activity to another banking group if you have a dispute - your funds can be used to offset debts within the same group.

Be careful with Banking details (card/account numbers) as these can be used to take unauthorised payments.

It's a parking ticket [problem], DO NOT PAY, they WILL NOT go anywhere near a court for fear of being prosecuted themselves, unless the parking ticket is issued by your local authority (council) then there is zero these chancers will be able to do.

 

Have a read of this, see if it is similar;

Give Consumer Direct a ring and file a complaint with them, then ignore the [problematic].

Total [problem]

The badge is issue to a PERSON not a car in the first place

There are many Blue Badge holders that DO NOT HAVE A CAR but use it when traveling in a car owned by someone else, which they are allowed to do

1) The fact disabled bays on private land are not endorsable in the first place,

2) The BLUE Badge has no significance on private land anyway

3) The RFL has nothing to do with a PPC regardless


NEVER FORGET

Please DO NOT worry and above all DO NOT PAY a penny. I have been through the whole system and there is nothing to worry about.

IGNORE ALL correspondence from them and they will go away, they are merely chancers trying to frighten you into paying an unenforcible invoice.

The sooner the government regulates there cowboys the better. Check the addresses of the bailiffs, even the wording, things like 'we may' if they had any legal powers it would be 'we will'

REMEMBER DO NOT REPLY TO THEIR LETTERS AND DEFINATELY DO NOT GIVE THEM A PENNY

Go on the parking forum and you will see it is a [problem].

You are completely wasting your time writing to them because they do not take any notice. All they want is your money.

Even if debt collectors get involved, which is normal with private parking companies, they will not go to court.

Just ignore the drivell they send you.

If you continue to write to them they will just think you are caving in and send you more begging letters.

Ignore, ignore, ignore.

Hi biscuit lover,

 

Your in their computerrised system at the moment and they will send numerous letters from numerous companys, you may even get a solicitors letter soon but dont be alarmed this is all part of the [problem] to scare you into paying. They will eventually give up on you, just be patient and do not get suckered in.

 

There are loads and loads of G24 cases on this site for you to have a read through to ease your mind.

Hi,

 

Just another worried punter I'm afraid. Had a parking ticket (G24) some months back - wanting £75. Car park in Crewe which had recently switched - basically locads of building work going on and the only sign was small, and behind my direction of parking (and the behind me when I left the car park)

 

Anyways - my mate told me to ignore it completely (not even appeal) and they will go away. I have had 3 letters from them, and two from CCS. Now have another letter from CCS who have said "72 hours of a home visit":eek:

 

Now I'm all up for ignoring letters, and I will turn up and protest my innocence at the court if required - no fear of legal system. However I'm concerned that they will turn up when my wife is in, not me.

 

If they turn up, do I (or she) simply say "Please leave my premises I have nothing to say" - and basically shut the door.

 

Or do I have to answer their questions?

 

What if they try to enter?

 

Sorry I know this has probably been asked before????

hello Blueinternet ( think thats your name , sorry i forgot )

My husband has had lots of letters from these people and I was so worried . We had letters about being taken to court and Bailiffs coming round and I was soo worried about them coming when I was in alone. So I came on here and lots of lovely people were kind enough to take time to answer me and help ease my worries. We have just ignored every letter they send and have not entered into any communication with them at all.

Hopefully they will have gotten fed up with us now or i pray they have. I dread the post coming but we still ignore them. Have a look online at "watchdog" on youtube , type in parking tickets and watch what he has to say that will help it did me.

We are going on holssoon so im going to forget about these parasites who pray on people who worry.:)
