    • Did you take screenshots or anything of the descriptions that you gave? Do you have any evidence to support you say? In any event, you paid for the insurance, you declared the parts having given the descriptions and they accepted it all on that basis. You have begun the claim procedure yet so I suggest that you do so. We'll see what happens. In any event, it could be said that the various sections are contradictory. Parts relating to vehicles are containing three separate sections and it is relatively difficult to discern which section a particular part should come into. Section 69 of the consumer rights act relates to ambiguities and basically says that an ambiguity must be interpreted in favour of the consumer.  
    • I have booked a Hotel/Flights Package with the above paying a 10% deposit with the balance due a month before travel next August.   On looking at Cancellation Charges they virtually say 100% 84 days out plus.   According to the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements regulations 2018 - termination fees have to be "Reasonable and Justifiable"   I find it hard to comprehend how last minutes charges could fall into the above description.   For example the hotel is available on Booking.com for our dates with no pre-payment and free cancellation up to the day before arrival.   I'm not sure of their arrangement with BA but the tickets we reserved have doubled in price in the last week and could easily be resold.   I can't find any anecdotal evidence or Court Cases relating to them trying to collect Cancellation Charges from people who have not already paid the full balance and cancel. If I were to cancel 8 months out is it likely they would pursue me for the remaining balance.    
    • Hi   Something else I think you need to ask the Insurer for Clarification on is.   That you require full clarification on which clauses within the Terms & Condition of the Policy they are using to refuse payment under the Policy.     I would also consider sending the Insurer a Subject Access Request simply asking for 'ALL DATA' this covers whatever format they hold it in whether it be email/telephone recording/written format etc. (note: if they require you to use their own subject access request form always put 'ALL DATA' on their form)    
    • matters not what they come up with it's statute barred      
    • Revised defence:   The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim vague and are generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.   1. The Claimant claims £2247.91 is owed under a regulated consumer credit account under reference xxxxxxx. I do not recall the precise details or agreement and have sought verification from the claimant and the claimants solicitor by way of a CPR 31.14 and section 78 request who are yet to fully comply. I dont believe they have provided this yet correctly   2. Paragraph 3 is denied.The Defendant contends that no notice of assignment pursuant to s.136 of the Law of Property Act & s.82 A of the CCA1974 has ever been served by the Claimant as alleged or at all. still stands   3. It is therefore denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant, the Claimant has failed to provide any evidence of assignment/balance/breach requested by CPR 31. 14, therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to:   (a) show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement; and (b) show and evidence any cause of action and service of a Default Notice or termination notice; and © show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for; and (d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;   4. After receiving this claim I requested by way of a CPR 31.14 request and a section 78 request for copies of any documents referred to within the Claimants' particulars to establish what the claim is for. To date they have failed to comply to my CPR 31.14 request and also my section 78 request and remain in default with regards to this request.   5. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5(4), it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.   6. On the alternative, as the Claimant is an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of Section 136 of the Law of Property Act and Section 82A of the consumer credit Act 1974.   7. By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.

Hi everyone, Im new to this. About a week ago I parked in an Aldi store and was there for just over an hour. It stated that I had been over the allocated time of an hour and a half and I have to pay £70 or pay £40 within 10 days and that would be that? Has anyone had any dealings with Private Eye and what should I do? Thanks:(

Are they well know? I had a look at their website and they seem legit...how can they work like this and be allowed? Have you had experiences with them in the past then? Sorry for all the questions just annoyed and need some answers!:)

Spend some time on all the posts here, you will a lot of people in your situation who have ignored the invoices and eventually they just go away.

 

It has been stated that 70% of people pay up when they receive these invoices, fortunately, the other 30% are wise enough to realise that a private company can not impose a penalty on anyone!

 

Who is going to stop them? DVLA sell your details for £2.50 a time and make £6million a year from it, it certainly wont be them!!

I've spent most of the morning looking at the various posts and the common theme is IGNORE the letters and requests! So I will do that, I am just annoyed that this country lets these illegal businesses hassle people and the weaker ones will pay and not think twice. As for the DVLA what a waste of time they are!

Are you suggesting that I dont even aknowledge that I received the original letter?

Quote from Al27 that you have just read:

 

Parking Eye are well known scamsters

Use of the Search facility on here will result in oodles of threads and messages with regard Parking Eye and other Private Parking Companies (PPC's). They all operate with the same business model - scare you into paying.

 

The advice you receive for a Invoice from any of them is the same:

 

1. Ignore

2. Ignore

3. Goto 1

 

You (or the Registered Keeper) will receive a few letters from them initially, some perhaps with red borders and wording to worry you followed by a few more from a Debt Collection Agency threatening all manner of nasty things will happen to you (none of which will) then finaly, you might get a few more from some solicitor after which they will realise your not going to bite and move along to somebody else.

 

You parked in a Free Car Park - you overstayed by an alledged period of time and denyed somebody else use of that free space at a cost of nothing therefore the potential loss to the landowner/operator was nothing. Under contract law they can only claim their losses which as we can see is - nothing !

 

Their claim for £70 or whatever they try it on for is meaningless. Aside from that the alledged contract was with the driver of the vehicle, the only means they have of contacting anybody to try and obtain money is by contacting the Registered Keeper (as the DVLA will happy take a few pounds from Parking Eye for this information) - if the Registered Keeper was not driving they have no obligation to say who was therefore Parking Eye have no one to chase - despite what they may suggest in correspondence they will send you.

Yep - wasting your time and the cost of a letter and postage. [1]

 

Sit back and just wait for the well documented junk follow.

 

[1] If you did want to write a letter then something to your local Trading Standards and MP telling them you consider the DVLA providing your details to PPC's is not "just reason" and in breach of the DPA and finally Aldi stores telling them you will use Lidl instead might be better use of your time.

Thanks for all the information lads. What sort of timescale are we talking here in terms of this going away, etc

5/6 letters over a 4 or 5 month period.

 

Under contract law a party is allowed to claim any actual losses they have suffered. Your actions have cost the other party zero pounds. The amount demanded by parking eye is defined as a penalty - a punative charge - which is not legally enforceable (see Dunlop vs New Garage 1913).

 

Practically though, all the company does is buy addresses from the DVLA at £2.50 a pop and send out threatening letters. The law doesn't come into it - they just prey on motorists. Feel free to complain to your local Trading Standards.

 

This [problem] originated when the government started selling addresses to anybody who wanted them. They pocket millions each year so are happy to let the [problem] persist.

 

It's pretty obvious the current lot will be out in May (although personally I don't think much of the other side either).

Parking Eye - definately ignore.

 

Local Morrisons carpark is run by this bunch and word is spreading that ignore works well

And will change precisely nothing as they have their expenses to fund as well :D

Lets see how knowledgebale they are then :eek:

 

You might notice that your V5 states your information may be given to anybody who asks for it and which the DVLA consider "Just Reason" (and for PPC's they do).

 

At £2.50 x however many requests the DVLA get per year the chances of anything changing are, well - you take a guess :mad:

Well I've ignored four of their useless invoices and the story is always the same, they send three letters, an outfit called CCS Collect send two or three letters threatening court action, CCJs, bailiffs, kidnap your dog, sell your kids into slavery, stop you getting credit for the next hundred years etc etc, then you just dont hear from them again.
