    • The issue with phone claims, is that UC is not designed for this. Given that it probably won't be redesigned away from being a digital platform,  it will remain the case that phone claims are a rare exception.   Problem with phone claims, is that the claimant is being expected to answer questions, which they might not be sure about. If the claimant does not have answers and needs to check information, they have to phone back. Then they get to the next section about something else they don't have information on etc etc.   DWP, Councils, CAB and organisations that help benefit claimants are going to be very busy during the managed migration process. I know that Parliamentary select committees have done several reports on this, which I think it one reason for the 10,000 pilot trial.  When the focus is on migrating existing benefit claimants, it may then be more difficult for new claimants to obtain the help they may require. Government are going to have to think about the resources they need to put in to make Universal Credit work, for both new claimants and those migrating from other benefits.        
    • Did you ever have the car on a street while it was untaxed ?   The answer will be yes.   In your situation, I think you had to buy the car tax, the same day as you bought the car. Either online or at a post office.   You did not do that and the letter suggests evidence of the car being on a street on a day it was not taxed. Ask for evidence if you want, but I would suggest you pay the penalty first to avoid further actions and then query evidence afterwards.     
    • Thank you for your responses. Can I ask them to send proof that I was on that street? And would it make no difference anyway, since even if I wasn't on that street I evidently hadn't taxed it on the day in question?

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

i have recently got a charge notice from ParkingEye, should I ignore it or send the first template letter ?

Thanks

 

This is what the notice says:

 

On 24/01/10 the registration vehicle XXXXXXX was in your name.

 

Photographic evidence shows you entering the Legat centurion Car Park at 14:00:49 and departing at 17:33:22. The maxium period permitted is 1 hour 30 minutes, so by calculation it is demonstrated that the vehicle has remained at the store for longer than permitted.

 

On the specified date, you were the registered owner, keeper, or hirer of the vehicle in question. As such, you are responsible to ensure that the terms and conditions for parking, as set down and claerly displayed in the car park, are complied with. Therefore you are required to pay the following excess parking charge within 28 days from this notice.

 

It goes on to say that £80 must be paid or £50 if paid within 14 days. £110 if I don't cough up in 28 days.

 

The letter is designed to look like an official penalty charge, with the chequered border.

To expand:

 

All you have is an unenforceable invoice for alleged breach of contract. The remedy for breach of contract is actual losses. The £50 is a contractual penalty charge. The £80 and £110 are spurious, made up amounts that have no relation to anything.

 

Your actions on a free car park have cost them zero pounds - their actual losses.

 

If you're in a 12 month BT contract and you cancel the contract half way through, you'd owe them the remainder of the 6 month contract ie. their actual losses by you leaving and going to another supplier. They cannot and do not charge a 'cancellation fee' because that would be an unenforceable contractual penalty.

 

In practical terms these parking companies give out invoice dressed up to look like parking tickets, buy the keeper's address from the DVLA and send out threatening junkmail. A great number of the uninitiated will happily send a cheque back.

 

It's a mail [problem].

 

Ignore them completely and don't be alarmed by the threatening junkmail you'll receive. After 3 or 4 debt collector letters they'll give up.

 

Parking Eye are well known and haunt Aldi car parks in particular.

LouPapy - just read the various PPC based threads and you see there is nothing to worry about. Ignore is the best way to combat these [problematic] and minimise the threatening letters

 

It is very very rare for a PPC to even consider court as they know they will loose. On the few occasions they claim to have done so and won it is either badly defended or more likely a set up to try and give the PPC some vague credibility.

 

I have told the current bunch chasing me for an alledged unpaid invoice that I will not pay them a penny and they will have to proceed to court but still they will not do so

 

There is NO appeals process only a let us [problem] you department

 

Ignore everything and do NOT contact them

Hi All - Received one of these jokers letters last week and was just about to appeal/pay when read all help on this forum. Guess the advice is just to stick it out even though the wife fretting were going to a CCJ or Bailiffs coming around. Find it hard to believe they can juts pressurise you into paying in this manner. Think will just sit tight and await the letters/ phone calls etc. Dont like fact they are coming after me as registered keeper and I wasnt even in the bloody car.

 

Many thanks for all posts!! :)

do some reading and ignore their 'invoice'

With respect, that only applies to people who don't know anything about CCJ's and bailiffs. Which is exactly what the PPC's play on.

Debt collection letters are a waste of trees' lives.

 

I've moved house 3 times in 4 years and every time I'd have about 10 debt collection letters dropping through every week.

 

Nothing ever happens and they gradually dry up.

Hi Jibbers

 

If she is still uncertain then there is a website set up to counteract a Morrisons / Parking Eye [problem] here which will confim that ignore works

Received a “ticket”? What to do next.. Carparkreigate's Blog

 

Yes you will get a lot of threaten junk mail purporting to be from Debt Collectors and Solicitors but it is all part of the [problem] to make you think you have done something terrible wrong and is to divert you from using plain old common sense and realising it is a [problem]

 

Even when you tell these buggers that you will not pay and they will have to follow through with court proceedings they refuse

 

Ignore and spend the money on a good meal
