    • Hello,   Apologies as I know this topic has been done to death but I find myself in a situation I can't seem to find another example of?   Around 12 months ago, Moriarty Law contacted me about a supposed debt relating to my ADCB current account in Dubai. Nearly all current accounts come with an attached credit card (turns out they don't but one of the pages in the initial application that you're asked to sign is actually for opening a CC.... I know, should have been more studious with reading).   Thanks to this forum, last year I downloaded the "Prove It" letter and sent to Moriarty. After hearing nothing at all for 11 and a half of those months, yesterday a big parcel arrived containing the pages from the original account opening app with my signature all over it, a copy of my passport and residency visa from that time and bank statements for the whole 5 years I had the current account with ADCB.   Looking at the amount owed, it translated to around GBP5,000 at such time as ADCB passed it to ML and now they have inflated it to GBP10,000 using a combination of mystery charges and a made-up exchange rate between AED/GBP.   I'm wondering what my next move should be as others seeking help from this forum usually see a Prove It letter to be enough to shoo the DCA away. Sadly in my case, there's 3kg of paper on my desk that very much proves it.   Also I'm a director of a UK Ltd company now so would like to avoid anything that may sully that.   Any advice gratefully received, thanks very much!  
    • Will this now get allocated a court date as CLI have exhibited evidence? Or will the court review the evidence first? 🙄
    • Hi Lutz,   Go ahead with the new account.   As I said already, the bank will probably do and say nothing to help you for the next few weeks so make whatever other arrangements you can.
    • I don't think that you have told us when you bought the car. However, you have referred to a conversation in which they apparently told you that the MOT had been carried out on 11 November so that suggests to me that you bought it after that date. Although it seems as if you are dealing with quite a dodgy crowd, you may as well go through the paces of asserting your proper rights. Because you have discovered this issue within the first 30 days – you can add to the strength of your position by sending them a letter asserting a right to reject the vehicle under the consumer rights act. If a car manifests a defect within the first 30 days then you are entitled to reject it out of hand with no chance of repair but you must assert your right in writing. Send them a letter immediately – recorded delivery – informing them that you are rejecting the vehicle and telling them on what grounds and say that you are asserting your rights under the consumer rights act. It won't make a whole lot of difference, but later on if you find yourself having to take court action, then it will all help. Please let us know when you have had the AA check. Meanwhile, I suggest that you contact me at our admin email address and let me know the identity of the garage and any other identity clues that you have unearthed. It may enable us to give you additional help

A NOTORIOUS car clamper who racially abused a man is the boss of a new parking enforcement firm in East Yorkshire.

 

Despite having a criminal conviction, the Mail can reveal Peter Del Grosso could have access to the DVLA database, meaning he can find out the names and addresses of drivers he fines. Del Grosso, who is no longer clamping, became director of a new company, Auto Security Limited, three months ago – around the same time wheel-clamping was outlawed in England.

 

Auto Security Ltd is a member of the British Parking Association (BPA), which would allow Del Grosso access to records kept by the DVLA.

The picture shows he is wearing a blue tooth device kinda like the FBI so he must be important and very official.

 

I do wish the media would stop calling these ticket demands 'fines', only courts can issue fines.

Just another rogue who will help to destroy the reputation of the BPA.

 

You can tell a man by the company he keeps.

This in my view is very serious and something that will be difficult to rectify. For example even if the DVLA insisted on background checks on companies who apply for membership of the BPA, all that will happen is that nominee drectors will be appointed and those people with a spurious background will still run the show and have access to personal information from a Government Department.

 

Personally, I have always been of the opinion that this cosy arrangement the DVLA have with the BPA is wide open to abuse. Money Laundering always springs to mind. (Think about it.)

Amazing. The BPA must be more stupid than anyone gave them credit for.

 

It is precisely because he isn't "open and honest" that he was banged up in the first place.

I wonder who it is in the BPA who has been given the computer keyboard to play with.

 

They really don't care much about themselves or what people think of them, do they? A bit like the whole industry.

Lets be honest as it stands Dick Turpin, Jack the Ripper and the great train robbers could obtain personal details by joining the self ticketing scheme. I note with interest that UKPC even offer the following service linked to the self ticketing information.

 

A reporting facilty is available which can provide useful data from either a security operational or Marketing perspective.

 

Anyone like to comment on precisely what this statement means.

 

In addition the BPA state the following

WHAT PLANET ARE THEY ON?

This sounds to me that they are offering to obtain DVLA data on behalf of organisations who are not in the BPA, who are not part of the AOS and who do not adhere to the BPA code.

Then, although they may not be sharing that data with those organisations, they will then put those data subjects through the mill in order to make them pay up money in respect of alleged charges which have allegedly been incurred on land which has even less to do with the Private Parking Company than usual and is even less subject to the usual scrutiny than usual.

 

I wonder who it is will be taking the legal action against transgressors?

I have forwarded this information to a local intersted party as it is only a matter of time before the BPA arrive at Holyrood trying to justify this questionable industry. With the information that has emerged since the introduction of the Protection of Freedoms Act in England and Wales, I take the view that they will get a much tougher time in Edinburgh.

I note that nothing has come back from the BPA since the deliberate mistake was spotted.
