    • If you are absolutely certain* that you were parked OK, write a letter of complaint to the Headteacher and copy in the Chair of the school governors.   If you or the car were identifiable in any way from the photo (eg visible registration number, driver's face etc) I would very politely write that you resent the untrue suggestion that you had parked/had stopped/were waiting in a way that contravened any traffic regulations, and that you are sure that the school will understand that you would like an apology and a correction to be printed in the next newsletter.  (You can also clearly state that you were identifiable from the photo because other parents have mentioned it to you).   See if that works.   You don't want to go to court for defamation as you'll need access to about £10k in fees before you get out of bed.  You just want an apology and a correction.  If what you've told us is accurate, I don't see any reasonable school failing to say sorry.     *My wife is a former school governor and my experience listening to her is that very very few parents actually understand the meaning of the no stopping/no waiting signs and road markings outside schools.  Don't complain unless you are sure you weren't stopped where you shouldn't have been.
    • And they haven't offered a speed awareness course either?  (Have you done one in the last three years or is this in Scotland?)   And is one of the notices for 34 in a 30?  As Man in the Middle says, that ought to be below the level at which they take action.   (And sorry - I don't want to appear preachy - but...  there don't have to be any warnings or signs or lines on the road to advise you of the presence of speed cameras.  If you get away with an exceptional hardship argument you will need to stick to speed limits in future - whether you know there are cameras there or not.  NB Don't know if this applies to you, but most 30 mph limits are restricted roads with a system of streetlighting and don't even need speed limit signs - you are assumed to know this from the Highway Code).
    • It's up to you if you want to pay £300 you don't owe plus whatever Unicorn Food Tax with no basis in law whatsoever that they will have made up in the Letter Before Claim.   We'd prefer you didn't.   But you have received a LBC so it's make your mind up time.   So please    - post up photos of the signage in the dark that you'll have taken two months ago (post 14)    - post up details of planning permission for their signs you'll have found out after you got onto the council, again two months ago (again post 14)    - also let us know if you agree with Brassnecked's excellent letter or if you'd like to tweak bits depending on what you've found out    - upload the LBC.  Some of them are appallingly drafted and invariably contain Unicorn Food Tax which is all useful extra ammo    - also, where are you living now (post 35) and are you comfortable with legal communications arriving at your parents'?   If you look in our PPC Successes thread at the top of the page, you will see 275 times these cheats have been seen off with their tails between their legs (and all had the same "well known legal companies" (ho! ho!) on hand).  In reality 275 times is a massive underestimate, in all 275 cases there was a "moment of victory" IYSWIM where the PPC were thrashed in court or discontinued a claim or were called off by a supermarket chain, etc., etc.  There will have been at least that number again where they were told to Foxtrot Oscar and then crawled back under their stone.  They are eminently beatable but logically when you're in legal dispute you have to put some graft in to beat the other party.

Hi All,

 

I am currently trying to negotiate a repayment plan with PRA Servicing Ltd (they are dealing with it on behalf of portfolio recovery associates ) and they have not replied to the letter I sent them.

 

Does anyone know of any email addresses for them, I wanna chase up their lack of a response but IMO they are not worth the price of postage so want to email them instead.

 

Any help from you guys and girls would be much appreciated

Personally I WOULD NOT deal with this lot by e-mail, as dx100 has said they are notorious with very old and extremely doubtful debts, best to use RM recorded delivery and check that the letter has been signed for.

Any Letters I Draft are N0T approved by CAG and no personal liability is accepted.

Did you know PRA Servicing are portfolio recovery associates? PRA = portfolio recovery associates ^__^

They are part of the Mckenzie hall umbrella

 

We could do with some help from you.

Owen James is the CEO. In Fact MH is part of PRA not the other way round.

In that case, why have contact with Muckhall at all, write direct to Wonga and 'tell' them how much you can afford. There is no negotiation, they will just badger for as much as they can not caring if you can afford it or not.

 

Tell them what you can afford, say £5 per month and send them a postal order for that amount as the first payment and ask for bank details so you can set up a standing order.

They aren't very good at giving their details, so you can also mention that if it should be necessary to pay any further instalments by postal order, the cost of the postal order will be deducted from the amount owed.

 

Don't be afraid of them.

At the moment I have had no mail from PRA/MH yet about the debt, all I have had so far is a letter from Wonga saying the debt has been assigned to PRA, should I wait for PRA to contact me by post with their usual petty threats or should I pre-empt all that and put forward my repayment proposal

The Debt is legit, it was passed on to them by Wonga , its only about £250 if that.

 

I prefer to deal with companies by email as it leaves a paper trail

 

How does it?

 

Emails get ignored, a well dwritten recorded delivery letter is a far more powerful tool.

I have no legal training, any knowledge I have has come from this forum, and my own experiences. Always balance up any advice you get with your own common sense.

'SENT' receipt???, a received acknowledgment is what is needed.

 

We see the futility of e-mail correspondence with DCAs far too often.

Got an update for you all

 

Had a letter from PRS saying I had not responded to them, sent an email off to the stating I wrote to them on 31st July explaining financial situation and offering x amount per month.

 

Received this email from them this afternoon.

 

Reference: xxxxxxxxxxx

 

Client Ref: xxxxxxxxxxx

Outstanding Balance: £284.47

 

 

 

Dear Mr Scouse Paul

 

We refer to the above account and would like to take this opportunity to advise you that a settlement figure may be available to you. What this means is, our client Portfolio Recovery Associates U.K. Ltd may accept a lower figure than your current outstanding balance as a full and final settlement of your account.

 

 

 

Please note when making a "settlement" payment, your credit file will show "settled" as opposed to "satisfied" when an account is paid in full.

 

 

 

Please note this is a time restricted offer. If contact is not made within the next 10 days, this opportunity may end. If this is an offer you would like to discuss further, please contact 08448019659 where one of our fully trained advisors will discuss the settlement option with you. Or alternatively you can email us on customercare@portfoliorecovery.co.uk

 

You can make payment via our website at http://www.portfoliorecovery.co.uk/payment.

 

Your PIN: xxxxxxx

 

PRA Servicing reference: Xxxxxxxxxx

 

Client reference: xxxxxxxxxx

 

Where this is not affordable, our advisors will also discuss alternative options available for you. Please be assured that we will take your financial circumstances into account when discussing any re-payment plan to ensure suitability.

 

 

 

If you are not the person referred to above, please do not hesitate to contact us on , where our advisors will update our records.

 

 

 

Yours sincerely

 

 

By offering a "settlement figure" are they clutching at straws or something and should I email them back or just ignore the email?
