    • should the oc have paid the refund to me? by the sounds of it, the balance continues, only just unenforceable. i would have thought the bal would have been written off?
    • can't see a wayout here sadly.   if all is true and you went through a broker and he did all they claim and you laterly signed and returned stuff..   up creek with no paddle are you IMHO.   bit cheeky on all the fees mind!  
    • I very much doubt that OPS will dare take you to Court having added on an unlawful  £60 to the PCN. They have been savaged by several Judges in Court claiming the extra charge is an abuse of process and are currently discontinuing all cases just before they go to Court hoping that the pressure on the motorist for a Court hearing  will force a payment  and avoid going to Court. It is a shame that you offered to pay them the reduced amount under cover of "without prejudice" since that would have shown your willingness top pay for something that probably isn't really owed. In the meantime I would write a letter to the SRA complaining about  DCBL adding an unlawful amount when they have had their cases thrown out of Court for adding that £60 or sometimes £70. OPS were in trouble with Judge Harvey  at Lewes Court back in February for adding that £60. As  it's OPS as opposed to any other car parking crooked company, I would be inclined to write to Judge Harvey asking for his comments. I cannot find the cse online but it was reported in this Forum a couple of months ago. I am sure that one of the Site members will be able to find it for you.  
    • Hi. In that case I probably did it wrong, the N244 asked for 'evidence in support of the application' and I assumed I had to include all the points that were mentioned on here in the N244, as well as any other reasons why I thought I have a chance of defending a Set Aside if one is granted.    If I've messed it up I've messed it up and need to move forward from here and give it the best shot for the £255 it's just cost, I also need to liaise with DCB Legal asap and then email the documents to the court next Wednesday, so your help would be much appreciated.   The court letter says I have to: 'liase with the other party to agree the key documents required by the judge essential to the case' and I have no idea what this means?   Is there any particular documents I should be asking DCB Legal for when 'liaise' with them?   Do I have to send DCB Legal  a written statement?   Do I have to send them the photos of trees hiding their signs at the entrance etc. Or do I just need to ask them to agree to show the court the original documents/Demands and letters OBS sent to me? Is there any particular documents I should be asking DCB Legal for when 'liaise' with them?   Should I be asking them to provide proof of planning permission for the signs and permission from the landowner etc at the time?   In court: Should I mention the 2 year time delay and accrued interest since the final demand and applying for a CCJ?   Should I be mentioning anything about DCB Legal instructing DCBL and the extra £90 they added to the total amount (for sending one letter)?     If I lose this, and have to pay the CCJ, does that mean DCBL will then start chasing me for the £90 cost for their letter?   Thanks again

    • 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

Hello guys, I hope you can help me here please.

 

As I said above, my licence was stolen so I applied online for a new one. I have a digital passport and it seems the systems can talk to each other so I don't have to send the DVLA the photo that makes me look like a serial killer :!:.

 

They say they sent me something to say they couldn't get their system to speak to the passport office, which I never got. When I rang, it seems that there is a hyphen missing from my name that stops the two systems speaking and it's wrong on the DVLA system. I wrote last week and asked them to change my name, as they suggested I should do, and I've heard nothing since.

 

How long should this alteration take please, or am I better sticking with a new paper application and my horrible photo?

 

Any comments very welcome.

hi honeybee,

 

sorry to hear you had your licence stolen, my advice would be to ring the dvla, and ask all your questions, the letter you sent last week it is not long enough yet i would thinkfor them to reply to you, as the normal business replies are usually about three weeks, also the paper licence i would go for every time, as you can feel it, touch it, see it, also i hope you sent your letter by recorded delivery, hope this is helpful. totiesquoties.

Yeah I'd second that. Ring them up and I'm sure they'll be able to get this sorted for you.

Not to make you paranoid but has a form of your ID is now missing you may be more susceptable to ID fraud.

Maybe worth keeping an eye on your credit file for a few months to make sure you get no nasty surprises.

Thank you, Somebody told me, I'm doing that. It's all been a bit of a pain. They got my credit cards too, but I managed to cancel those before any transactions happened.

 

I wrote to the DVLA following a phone call to them when they told me to do this. The lady told me they can only add the hyphen to my name if I write in, and then the system will talk to the passport office if I apply again online.

 

Or would you suggest I start again with a paper application? My last online one lapsed because they took nearly a week to send me the paperwork to make this alteration. By the time it arrived, I'd gone away and when I got back they had lapsed my online application.

 

The lady on the phone was very fierce about it being my responsibility to inform them of the error. I have to say at the time, I assumed that their system couldn't cope with hyphens and as my names were spelled right, I left it. I never dreamed it would cause all this later on.

 

Thanks for your comments, guys.

If your online application has lapsed that it may be worth starting afresh via a paper one.

I know it's major pain in the rear end; I remember when my dad had his wallet stolen years ago and had to renew all his cards and license.

Luckily he only had a fiver in it so the thief would've felt a little disappointed when they opened it up...and they say crime pays! :lol:

Thank you. I'll wait until they reply about my name and then start again. Unless you think I should reapply now? I appreciate your help.

Thank you STM, I'll try. They weren't very good last time, but I might find someone better if I try again.

 

My best, HB

Hey HB, How you getting on with this?

Like you say sometimes speaking to someone different can reap the necessary rewards to get you to where you need to.

Fingers crossed for some good news soon.

Thank you STM, I'll keep you posted. Nothing in the post yet, I thought I'd give them the 3 weeks. At least they're not on strike like their French counterparts. :)

Touch wood we'll be postal strike free for a good while.

The year wouldn't be complete without a French workers strike would it?:lol:

I'd tend to agree especially after watching their awful showing at the World Cup.
