    • Hi.   Could you let us have the information requested in the forum sticky please? This will help us to advise you. In the meantime don't worry too much about this.     HB  
    • So last August my girlfriend went to Legoland with the kids (4 & 8) and her mum and then went to Pizza Express in Windsor. They parked at Castle Car Park.    They paid to park and went to eat. They were then a few minutes late back. There was already an attendant issuing a ticket. The attendant then waited until my girlfriend was over ten minutes late to issue the ticket despite her being there well within any grace period.   My girlfriend appealed to Ultimate Customer Solutions end of August but did not receive a response (they later said they emailed a rejection which my girlfriend never received until it was resent). Then in August she received the first debt collection letter. Then my girlfriend was advised to respond to UCS requesting an Subject Access Request (SAR) which they have not ever acknowledged or responded to.    So then we thought they had gone away until we received a letter from CSB solicitors (same address as UCS) advising they would be beginning court proceedings against my girlfriend. I told my girlfriend to complain that they haven't responded to any of our requests so she called the number of UCS and was basically accused of being rude to the t*** at the end of the phone. She wasn't but he wasn't very helpful and said they had responded to the appeal and sent it again. This was on the 16th January 2020.    On the 29th Jan this was sent after another chase to the solicitors:   I have reported UK Parkings ltd to the ICO as they are in beach of GDPR having ignored my SAR request. Further to this I was not notified that my initial appeal had been rejected and therefore cannot further appeal in a standard way and therefore I am awaiting further advice for ways to appeal against this unfair PCN.   As it stands should you decide to further contact me in regards to this matter without good cause I shall be seeking legal advice as per my statutory rights.   My girlfriend then received another letter from UCS threatening debt collectors (I told her not to worry about this) and so she wrote to the solicitors asking for an update:   Email dated 21/02/2020 I am writing to you regarding my email sent on 29th January, below. I still have not received a response from you and I left a voicemail for a solicitor to call me from CSB Solicitors, which I have also not received. I would like to speak to a solicitor regarding this PCN.   The solicitor responded via email the following: Dear Madam,   Thank you for your email.   Following your email below, we reverted this matter back to our Client for their instructions. We will only be able to respond more fully once these are received.   At this stage we have no further instructions other than to send out a letter to you dated 16 January 2020.   We hope to be able to respond more fully once these are received.   Yours faithfully,   Solicitor   So UCS are not actually doing anything they should do but nobody we have complained to has actually come back to us so not sure where to take this because I don't have time for court and I would rather just have someone take the (insert appropriate word here) to task on these unbelievably poor practices!   Any advice on next steps?   Thanks    
    • Hi Sneezer and thanks for your Site Donation which is much needed and much appreciated.   The info from the "Solicitor" makes sense if you were complaining about how CRS came to have your contact details. However, this is not relevant to your case. You didn't cancel properly and carried on paying for a gym you didn't use.   For the future, see the Guide here about how to cancel a contract properly and avoid trouble - https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/383678-cancelling-your-gym-agreement-get-it-right/     Come back anytime to update us but don't worry about CRS or anyone else who makes demands. Let us know if you need more for advice and reassurance.    
    • They were communicating with lawyers associated to me too   They can’t serve a SD on your lawyers, only you.   As I said earlier - the lawyer stopped communicating  around the date on the SD they incorrectly served.  And the bank told me the receiver was now handling things and not to deal with them anymore.   The receiver never asked me where I was.  But he did email and I did reply or he did get auto reply.   Since I did have email communication with them - I don't think they could say they did everything possible to find me,  All they had to do was ask!  And then we could have discussed the situation.    It almost is the reverse - they did nothing to try find me.  And if a PI is employed to do surveillance then he must have realised only one person - the wrong one - lived at the  wrong address.   Does anyone have any info re post #26 and #28 above?   The property is being marketed for sale and the receiver is negotiating offers, so there was no reason for me to expect bank/ lawyers to be trying to locate me to serve any papers.      Surely any loss to them has to be proven upon an agreed sale.  It hasn't sold yet,   They may still get a high enough offer to prevent any large debt?  There could then be a different discussion re terms of repayment?   So I was not expecting anyone to be trying to find me!   But this is a bit of a digression from what  should I be doing NOW? Should I send them an SAR?  If they do intend to serve me correctly this would be useful, yes?   I am sure they have added all sorts of unnecessary costs to the debt that could be challenged?   Also there is a question over if they even had a valid notice of assignment?  They would have to produce that in the SAR wouldn't they?   This was a real query for me ages ago but it never got pursued legally.

No, I think that ACS Law had some form of Insurance cover. This was brought up when ACS Law/Media Cat went to court, as lawyers representing ACS Law turned up. This is mentioned many posts ago on this thread and on Slyck.


We could do with some help from you.

It says.."He had told PC Pro that ACS Law's insurance would cover the costs.", I think solicitors are required to have such insurance just in case things like this happen, although normally the acting solicitor wouldnt be liable as nornmally he would only be acting for his client, although in this case, the client was ACS.It is worth noting that as ACS got itself in more and more of a mess, the insurance (mentioned above) that ACS had to pay, got more and more expensive (not surprisngly !), that it ultimately became un affordable, this was about the time that ACS Law fell apart.Lets hope this fiasco is a warning to other companies thinking of following a similar course.Andy

But he is a lawyer, who would probably have good accountancy help as well, so may have legally made sure all financial arrangements were robust.

 

Plus we don't know what is currently happening. It could well be that with all that has gone on, matters are not as rosy as the pictures of large house etc might allude to.

 

I think the main thing to come out of this sorry saga, is that nobody in their right minds would try to run with this again. I should imagine it has been very damaging to those that have tried to invoice those suspected of copyright infringements. At some point new legislation will be passed and solicitors will then make money out of taking such actions.

I’m helping someone who’s involved in the case for the upcoming solicitors disciplinary tribunal. Crossley may have got away with avoiding financial penalties but he’s brought the whole legal profession into disrepute and hopefully the tribunal will put an end to his career as a solicitor. Trial date is expected to be sometime around May next year. Just preparing witness statement at the mo.

Well, it would appear that Mr Crossley has not learned his lesson.

ACS:Law, the controversial law firm that tried to get money from people by accusing them of illegal file-sharing, appears to be back in business.

 

Ralli Solicitors, which represented some of those accused by ACS:Law during a UK court case, has told the BBC it is now advising a client based in Greece.

Very odd..it appears that ACS has been wound up and unable to operate, this recent saga is very fishy indeed, perhaps someone has hijacked ther name, someone should give out their address, I assume it is still Hanover Square although perhaps the building is operating as just a PO Box, now surely Crossley isnt stupid enough to set up again, and as a bankrupt with SRA proceedings hanging over him surely it isnt actually legally possible ?Andy

Why the huge delay ?. I note that Davonport Lyons one has only just been heard and they were presented with a legal bill of £150,000....its hard to see how much work was actually done by the SRA..still cant complain..good to see justice has been done :)Andy

They probably penciled in that date because of his ongoing court case which was expected to last longer than it actually did.
