    • please answer the following questions.   1 Date of the infringement- 21/06/19   2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date]- 12/07/19   3 Date received 15/07/19   4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? N I can't see it   5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Yes a ANPR Camera showing arrival and exit but separate parking machine in car park not at gates    6 Have you appealed? Y Post up your appeal] I am waiting for a copy of my appeal but I have other emails sent i can send  Have you had a response? Y. Email was never sent as they stated on 29th July. Finally got the notice of regection sent by email on 3rd Oct.    7 Who is the parking company? National Car Parks Limited owned by Park24.co   8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] NCP, Terrace Road, Bournemouth    For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. Not on the letter but found on line its BPA   There are two official bodies, the BPA and the IAS. If you are unsure, BPA please check HERE   If you have received any other correspondence, please mention it here   in either case scan up bothsides of any letters/tickets in or appeals made out to ONE MULTIPAGE PDF ONL
    • Not much point in appealing. You paid for 4 hours and stayed for an extra 45 minutes. Goes to show what a bunch of crooks you are dealing with when you first appealed they delayed their response until you came liable for the higher charge and they wouldn't reduce that sum. From now on just ignore everything you get from NCP  and their unregulated debt collectors (birds of a feather). They will try to frighten you with increased costs  that you can safely ignore. In the  meantime please complete the questions asked by dx above and post up any PCNs so we can see if they got them right. Also we need to see their signs in the car park especially the one at the entrance; any that are different from the others and the T and Cs on the ticket machine. Before posting the PCNs please delete your name and reg. number plus anything else that might identify yourself.  
    • Don't forget ... the attorney general (Cox) who apparently advised 'misleading the Queen, Parliament and the British people as ' sounds good to me .. actually said they could ..   He doesn’t much like the idea of staying in the European customs union But said he would be willing to accept one if it would secure the goal of getting Britain out of the EU.    BUT He followed with “If we decided (meaningless distracting time suggestion) that we wanted to review our membership of any such customs union if we signed it – and I'm not saying we will – that's a matter for negotiation and discussion,”
    • Thanks dx   I have emailed the business and I have requested a refund on the form provided by them.   I have noticed on Saga.co.uk there is an article referring to the same website and a paragraph from another motorist who also received PCN for same journey at around same time as us.  'At the end of November 2018 I was travelling on the M 25 over the Dartford Bridge and returning the next day. So I went online the night before and thought I had paid for a return journey at a cost of £12. My Tesco MasterCard shows a payment of £12 to “DartfordCrossingCharge Bristol 000“. I have now had to pay £70 fine plus the correct charge of £5 because the official site did not get my money. There must be so many people being tricked by this false website , sowhy can it not be taken down? The Dart Crossing company isn’t interested. Perhaps because they are also making money from the [problem] every time someone like me makes a mistake?'

Hello everyone,

 

I'm hoping someone can help me sort what seems like a strange problem i've been having with debt collection agencies.

 

In 2006 i lost my job and made a claim on my credit card PPI to cover the payments. This all eventually went through and a year later, still unemployed (still am today!) I received a letter saying under the terms of the insurance as I was still not working, the debt was repaid and the balance was zero. Hurrah I thought, but once or twice a year since then i'd get debt collector letters demanding the balance, as it was before I took out the insurance claim. Anyway I simply wrote back with a copy of the insurance letter and they seemed to go away.

 

That was until about a year and a half ago, i was suddenly getting letters from LloydsTSB who I banked with and had the credit card with, demanding payments and adding charges for my credit card to my current account, this took me over my overdraft and sent my charges sky high, I was suddenly locked out of my internet banking and when I went into branch, to try and put some money in to prevent my unauthorised overdraft spiralling out of control, was told my account had been closed and I would just have to go home and phone customer services - I was fuming to say the least. This was followed by a mad flurry of debt collection calls and letters, so I made a complaint to the Financial Obmbudsman.

 

The findings were that Lloyds had failed to write off the debt on my card when it was settled and that any charges relating to my current account were unfair and my account was to be reinstated immediately. (I haven't tried using it - moved to another bank and I haven't even tried using my credit card since I lost my job)

 

All fine and quiet for about a year, which brings us to this summer when it all started again and currently I have eight or nine different debt collection agencies after payments for both my credit card and my current account debt via letter and what seems like every five minutes telephone calls either on my landline or mobile. It's driving me insane, I've tried writing, sent copies of the insurance and ombudsman reports and yet they keep on. I've supplied a copy of my credit report where it says 'settled' in 2007. I've told them they are mistaken, I've asked them to supply me with proof of a debt. They're just not interested. What can I do to put an end to it all once and for all?

 

Any advice anyone can give me would be most appreciated. At first it was quite laughable at how they could make such a huge error, but now its feeling like a huge weight, as I don't know whats going on behind the scenes I'm worried i'm going to have to deal with doorstep agents or CCJ's (a friend told me they can CCJ you without you even knowing!). I just need it all to stop now.

 

Sorry for rambling on, but it's a fairly odd predicament don't you think?

Hi welcome to CAG, which DCA is chasing this now?

 

The circumstance for judgement to be made wthout your knowledge are if you fail to respond to the claim or have moved and not informed creditors of a new address, etc.

 

Check your credit files for up to date info.

 

THEN a SUBJECT ACCESS REQUESTS UNDER THE DATA PROTECTION ACT 1998 TO GET ALL THE DATA LLOYDS HOLD ON THE ACCOUNT, THE SAR HAS £10 FEE THE CREDITOR HAS 40 DAYS TO COMPLY,USE THE TEMPLATE FROM THE CAG LIBRARY, ADDRESS IT TO THE DATA CONTROLLER AT LTSB

I think you will have to raise a complaint with Trading Standards if they are taking no notice of you.

Thank you thats reassurring!

 

This debt is currently being chased by Robinson Way/Apex/Mackenzie Hall/Credit Security Services/Credit Collections/Credit UK/DC Credit Management. I'm getting calls alternate days from each of these and have been since June. Although I think they are treating the current account and the credit card as two seperate debts/accounts.

OK, are these DCAs stating if they are collecting on ''behalf of a client''?

This scenario breaches OFT GUIDANCE,.

So which account do they appear to be chasing?

So which account do they appear to be chasing?

In all honesty, they seem to all be chasing both accounts I'll get one referring to the credit card account and few days letter one referencing the bank account.

 

The letters generally say that they've been 'authorised to recover the full amount'. Although I did get a strange letter from Robinson way today with "SECURITY TELEMESSAGE" stamped all over it. Not sure what they were trying to achieve with that tactic, as it just looks a bit naff to me :)

Robinson Way are naff, but most DCA's are.

 

Lloyds are the ones to complain to, but unless you write to their Head Office, you might have a struggle on your hands. Hopefully if you phone CAB, they will be able to get TS's to get the DCA's off your back, so they return the accounts to Lloyds.


We could do with some help from you.

This is the letter to send them regarding their criminal offence of harassment http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/content.php?493-Harassment-by-telephone-response-letter

 

Keep a diary of events, esp concerning this harassment via phone, when they ring laugh and hang up, if they persist simply say "everything in writing" then laugh and hang up.

Lodge a formal complaint to Ofcom regarding the misuse of the communications network http://consumers.ofcom.org.uk/tell-us/telecoms/

 

Have you looked at your credit files to see what names of companies are on their?

FOTL stance isn't helpful in this particular case, nor in most cases on CAG.

 

Whilst I fully understand the FOTL status, and implement it in my day to day life, it is too much for some to grasp hence why there are plenty of other sites out there that deal direct with that very subject.

God NO!!

 

FOTL is extremely relevant, just not in this instance, OP has already established 'joinder' therefore to implement FOTL status is going to prove difficult.

 

But this convo is for FOTL websites, remember KISS?? (Lets just keep it simple :thumb:)
