    • what rights of access do you have on your agreement with the landlord?   i suspect you shouldn't have to pay a thing.
    • then there is your proof to them why would you pay for BB twice!!   for my notes: GENERAL NOTES ON CHARGEBACK & Continuous Payment Authority & BACS   .....  We have been telling people to put a letter into their bank instructing them  not to make any payments under any circumstances to these companies  . http://whatconsumer.co.uk/visa-debit-chargeback/- it works! usually this should be done using the number on your debit card  .  banks MUST follow written intructions from their customers ! . CANCELLING YOUR DEBIT CARD DOES NOT STOP CPA'S  .  This fsa guide has now been updated:  . http://www.fsa.gov.uk/static/pubs/consumer_info/know_your_rights_guide.pdf http://www.fca.org.uk/news/continuous-payment-authorities-your-right-to-cancel https://www.fca.org.uk/consumers/unauthorised-payments-account  .  Here's the text:  .  Cancelling a regular  card payment:  .  When you give your credit or debit card details to a company and authorise them to take regular payments from your account,   such as for a gym membership or magazine subscription,  it is known as a ‘recurring transaction’ or ‘continuous payment authority’.  . These are often confused with direct debits, but do not offer the same guarantee if the amount or date of the payment changes.  .  In most cases, regular payments can be cancelled by telling the company taking the payments.   .  However,   you have the right to cancel them directly with your bank or card issuer by telling it that you have stopped permission for the payments.   Your bank or card issuer must then stop them – it has no right to insist that you agree this first with the company taking the payments.  .  Be aware, though, that you will still be responsible for paying any money that you owe. and that CANCELLING YOUR CARD WILL NOT STOP THE CPA  .  ..  .  New june 2013  .  Regulator orders Banks and mutuals to review complaints about not cancelling recurring payments from November 2009.  .  Consumers who have set up a regular payment from their account will now be able to successfully cancel that arrangement   by contacting their card provider, the Financial Conduct Authority said.  .  The FCA has been examining how easy it is for customers to cancel Continuous Payment Authorities (CPAs)   due either to payday lendersicon or for other regular payments such as subscriptions or gymicon memberships.  .  CPAs, which are also commonly called recurring transactions or recurring payments,   are relatively easy to set up but can be hard to cancel, causing problems for consumers trying to manage their finances,the FCA said.  .  Now, following the FCA review of how the largest high street banks and mutuals process requests to cancel CPAs, they have agreed that they will ensure that when   a customer asks for a recurring payment to end, that will be sufficient to cancel the arrangement. They have also confirmed that should a payment go through by   mistake following cancellation by a customer the customer will be refunded immediately.  .  In addition to securing this commitment, the largest banks and mutuals have agreed to review every individual complaint they have received about the non-  cancellation of a CPA and to pay redress where payments have continued to be made despite the customer cancelling the arrangement. This applies to all complaints   since November 2009 when the Financial Services Authority, the FCA’s predecessor, began regulating banking conduct.  .  Clive Adamson, the FCA’s director of supervision, said: “It’s important that consumers are confident that banks are meeting their everyday banking needs. Today   customers can be confident that when they ask for a Continuous Payment Authority to be cancelled – it will be cancelled - and that it can be done easily.   . “We recognise that historically this is an area where some customers have struggled but the banks and mutuals have responded positively to our work on this issue.   From now on we expect them to be getting this right. In addition, they have committed to review past complaints.” .  .  Also mentioned your displeasure that as whomever took your money had obviously attempted this many times   probably activating your banks own anti fraud software - nobody had the decency to inform my you this was going on.? .  .In the FSA's own words:  .  ..  What should I do about a payment from my account that I didn’t authorise?  .  Your bank must refund an unauthorised transaction.   Money can only be taken from your account if you have authorised the transaction   or if your bank can prove you were at fault –  . see below.  Contact your bank immediately if you notice an unauthorised payment from your account. .  If you are sure you did not authorise the payment, you can claim a refund.  .  However, your bank does not have to refund you if you do not tell it about the payment until 13 months  or more after the date it left your account.  .  Your bank must refund an unauthorised transaction  .  ------------------  .  Your bank may only refuse a refund for an unauthorised transaction if:  .  ? it can prove you authorised the transaction  – though your bank cannot simply say that use of your password,   card and PIN proves you authorised a payment; or .  ? it can prove you are at fault because you acted fraudulently,   or because you deliberately,   or with gross negligence, failed to protect the details of your card, PIN or password in a way that allowed the transaction  .  -----------------------  .  How quickly must my bank refund me for an unauthorised transaction?  .  The bank must make the refund immediately unless it has evidence that one of the above reasons applies.   Your bank may ask you to answer some questions and fill out a form confirming what has happened,   but it cannot delay your refund while it waits for you to return the form.  If the bank has evidence that one of the above reasons for refusing a refund applies,   it may investigate before making a refund   but must look into it as quickly as possible.   If your bank rejects your claim for a refund it should explain why.  If the transaction was on a credit card, the refund may not happen immediately.   But the card issuer cannot charge interest or ask for repayment of the amount unless it can prove you are liable to pay

    • 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

There is always that possibility. But, bear in mind that there are posters on this forum that have begged the PPC to take them to court without a result.

The ppcs dont like court, for a few reasons, it is not cost effective and they have had very little success, the ones they have won are usually undefended claims.

Think about it another way, if court was such a certainty for them, you would not get the countless letters threatening court action, it would be one letter, if ignored staright to court, doesn't happen.

It really is just a [problem] that you should ignore.

Linda,

 

Heed the overwhelming good advice & experience of most forum members & totally ignore these chancers. Don't be influenced by the scaremongering drivel of the troll above.

 

Thanks to this forum I weighed up the 'pros & cons' some time ago, & safely ignored the undiluted cr*p from UKCPS (15 months ago) & an outfit called Civil Enforcement Ltd/Newlyn (2 years ago).

 

After a few stupid written threats, they both crawled back under the respective stones from whence they came.

 

Hold your nerve & don't become a victim.

There is no fight.

Ignore what that muppet parklawguru (:rolleyes:) said (who only apparently joined in the last few days) as the wealth of experience and first hand stories on this forum attests to the fact that PPC's are money grabbing parasites who stand little to zero chance of ever seeing the inside of a court room.

 

I myself have ignored the usual trail of faux parking "fines", solicitors letters, debt collectors letters (and all at great personal risk to my life/liberty/Credit Rating etc) and yet here I stand (well, sitting actually) unbowed and with a credit rating better than Greece!!

 

Keep your money in your pocket and your chuckle muscles primed for any more correspondance from uk cps. :lol:

I think it is fair to say there has been a substantial divide of opinion in this thread so the best advice I can give to Linda is to check with qualified organizations, such as the Citizens' Advice Bureau (CAB) in addition to unbaised friends and relatives.

 

This I think will help Linda to decide if ignoring the ticket is worth the risk. If ignoring is the path she chooses I would wish her the very best of luck and I will cross my fingers for her that she doesn't end up with a charge several times the original.

 

Peace to everyone,

I can assure you I am neither a troll nor "Gerald Maskell". I merely signed on to share my opinions and experiences in this field.

 

My only advice to the original poster, as already stated, is to search for CPS on google to see in what capacity the authority acts. Again, if linda elects to ignore the charge I offer her all my best wishes and the good luck in the world - I am only saying that I would not risk such egregious consequences for the sake of a #60 parking charge.

 

The only thing I can say is that I find it surprising and interesting that the owners of this web site would delete my original posts and comments - surely if you are so certain and confident about your arguments you would challenge my posts and reveal them for the rubbish they are, instead of delivering personal insults and attacks. Linda, all I can say is; if and when you are in court defending a parking charge because some "people on the internet" told you to, where do you think those who told you to ignore it will be?? Its' easy to say ignore if it isn't your own money on the line.

That £60 charge can safely be ignored. Only yesterday a judge threw out a cliam by another parking company saying that no loss was incurred so nothing could be claimed by the parking company. In addition take a look at what this solicitor says about these charges:-

I agree if you are a legal eagle, and under very certain circumstances where parking organisations are acting inappropriately, you may be able to find some kind of loophole. However the average indiviudal does not have the legal knowhow to be able to defend themselves against a court case against them. I suggest you look at parallel law about clamping, on which cases indicate that fines of anywhere up to 100 pounds are resonable. Consider also that CPS are liable to clamp your vehicle if you do not make payment - and as this site will agree clamps are a bit harder to get out of than parking tickets. There has NEVER been a true test case on private parking tickets that makes it safe or not safe to ignore them because every case is judged on its facts and merits and for that reason, I offer the unbiased opinion that you MAY ignore it if you want to take the risk. The ticket is only 60 pounds though, and ignoring it could lead you to paying over 600 pounds, plus having a record of having been present in court for a parking charge which will not look good for you. it's your call, not anyone else's, OK?

What nonsense. For a start this is a civil case and appearing in a county court will leave no stain on your character. Are you a legally trained person? What are your comments on that Watchdog clip?

I am sorry that I cannot play the watchdog clip due to my computer. But presumably it features somebody saying it is safe to ignore the charge. Presumably he says something about the risks involved, as any self respecting person would - if he doesn't say anything about risks then that is deeply irresponsible because nobody can deny the possibility of a court judgment being won against you - the only disagreement is about the likelihood.

 

Feel free to ignore the ticket though - I am sure that CPS would like nothing more than that as it paves the way for a case against you. I would suggest you google 'CPS' though and view with whom they are affiliated.

The watchdog clip features a solicitor who specialises in parking law. He says that it is safe to ignore these tickets and he even folds one up into a paper plane and flies it across the studio. That's what he thinks of them.

 

You haven't answered my second question. Are you legally trained?

 

Also look at this thread to see what a count-court judge said about a recent parking case.

ParkLawGuru. Yeah right! PlanetPerkyGuru more like. Always a sense of deja vu with these desperate PPC trolls. They all come from the fantasy school of law (lecturer: Professor Perky Porkpie) which has no idea of what the law actually is, instead of what they would like it to be. Wishful thinking from a bunch of ignorant clowns.

 

Keep it up guys. Clearly this forum and others like it is getting to the PPC knuckledraggers. With a bit of help from the new coalition they will crawl back into the swamp from whence they came.

I like the bit where the troll says look at who CPS are affiliated with. An even bigger bunch of losers than themselves, if that is possible. As I recall the last time UK CPS did court they had to do a deal with the CAG poster to make it look like they had won rather than lost.

 

Perky must have had a few dates by now surely. There must be some women who prefer the fuller figure and a rough and ready uncomplicated lack of education/intelligence. White stick optional.

I do not believe any judge has ever agreed any level of FINE is reasonable as a FINE by a private company against a private citizen is legally unenforcable. only councils (government bodies) and the police can issue FINES. Private companies can only issue invoices. :)
