    • Hi All, I have received a parking ticket as RK (thats registered keeper right?) for overstaying by 16 mins in a well known wholesalers car park in Liverpool. I read some very confusing (and sometimes contradictory information on several sites) on how to deal with this. I followed the instructions to firstly challenge the validity of their claim. I wrote to them (no response) and emailed them. I had to guess at the email address because they provide only the registered office address or a 'claim line', which if i had contacted them on that, would have been agreeing to their idea of us having a contract in the first place (right?). i eventually got the admin email and sent it there, stating that i had already written to them with no response. I got a response saying that they do not respond to correspondence at that address and i should either write to them (already did) or contact via the appeals line or appeals email (again with the acknowledgement that its an appeal i need, rather than straight up confirmation). I asked in at the wholesalers customer/ member services in store about the car park ownership and they informed me it was a consistent problem and they didnt know the owner. I have contacted the head office in Herts for the information. (Customer services/ member services/ online services & complaints) for the information regarding ownership of carpark and the contract of agreement between them and the CE parking management with no luck. I received no further correspondence and therefore assumed that they had dropped their spurious claims. They acknowledged my letter with: "Response from representation team -  We refer to your recent correspondence. We accept for you to pay the original reduced sum of £100. The Parking Charge Notice has been passed to a debt recovery agency. All further enquiries, including payments, must be directed to them. Please follow the instruction on the correspondence you have received." I received nothing else until I receive a Northampton county court business service court claim. The amount is now in the hundreds (£274). I have acknowledged and sent back the form with nothing else written on it. now i have another week or so to mount my defence. I dont know anyone who speaks 'legalese' and frankly its giving me sleepless nights. Incidentally, at the time of the alleged 'contravention' there was a bout of sudden severe weather which was 'waited out' inside the wholesalers porch by several members and their children because the soft furnishings and electricals (for example) bought in store would have been destroyed by the downpour. Further investigation into the owner of the Civil Enforcement ltd has shown me that they are owned by CCP parking, who are in turn owned by Qa Nominees and are owned by people exposed in the Panama Papers scandal.   I am feeling like im a tiny part of a very big scam here, one that DVLA are profiting from. Under advisement, I have written a complaint to the wholesalers complaining about being treated so shoddily as a member. Under advisement, I have also written to CE ltd requesting a Subject Access Request. But I really dont understand the process or what steps to take now.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hope you improve soon

 

Perhaps take a look at tai-chi exercises on utube

Ensure you follow the breathing with the movements

 

Drop on to youtube and enter tai chi breathing in the search.

 

The exercises are slow but surprisingly challenging and invigorating when done properly

If you struggling that bad perhaps you should be ringing 111 at least labrat

 

Another thing I use is one of the cheap face steamers with vic or menthol crystals in it.

 

the tai chi is really for helping clear the passages and get back in the habit of breathing 'properly' again.

  • 5 weeks later...

So how long before another lockdown? a week, 2 weeks, a month? soon as children go back to school what is the betting  there be yet more cases of covid!

 

 I really wish someone  would  take over who  knows what      they are doing instead of the bumbling idiot  who is supposed be in charge now!  The lockdown  should stay    as it is until  there is  no deaths from this awful virus, my opinion, I  do not support any party but really wish we had someone who knows what         they are doing ( NOT LABOUR!!!!! ) again my opinion. I do not  even watch the news, or listen to it, no need you hear about it constantly, I do not even have a tv lol

 

Tbh, I  think this is going to take A very long time if ever for us to recover from and  talk of holidays   should be forgotten for a long time even though   everyone by  now needs one!

Yes but they will think up something different to call it so it wont be another lockdown. fire break, or moat, or portcullis or some such piff;l.

There are at least some murmerings about inoculating children

- but there is still undoubtedly many more billions to be squeezed from the british taxpayer for enriching favoured populist pals ... which certainly mustn't be allowed to go to waste feeding hungry British children or suchlike ...

Then you will no doubt be pleased to hear that the bumbling piffle peddlers' strings (and government) undoubtedly jumps largely at the whims of Barney and Princess nut nut.

Not sure which one of them is is taking the P more although Barney is apparently more open about it.

They now say no holidays here or abroad but there is no evidence  that all those who meet on beaches, etc etc   do not spread the virus!  really.

I have also  seen that there now may now be enough vaccines  to go round and yet they want the children to go back to school! 

In my opinion no, yes they need education but surely their health is more important?

 

Seem as well some people have booked holidays here and abroad, why?  the children not be able to enjoy it like they would have done normally, no going to the holiday park  entertainment or anything, maybe all you can do is go to the beach!  I do not mind the beach but not all day every day!

me again!

 

Why do most companies insist   on you giving them a phone number!

 

I am asking on behalf a my  ex father -in-law, he applied for    insurance I believe but because he has no phone of any sort they told him they can not continue his application!

Why? is it law to have a phone???? I myself only have a  bog standard mobile, has no camera, no internet etc, I  do not give my number out to anyone yet get SWAMPED with unwanted calls and texts even though I registered it with TPS!

 

I find it really unfair you are expected to have a phone, not everyone wants one or afford one

It's because of the 2nd EU Payment Services Directive which came into effect in March last year which requires companies who deal with online payments, accounts etc to authenticate the customer using their mobile phone to reduce fraud.

 

I live in a rural area with no mobile signal and it became impossible to function without being able to receive one-time security codes by text to open & access banking and investments accounts so I had to change my network to one that had wifi calling.

 

It's a fact of life that mobiles have become a means of identification. Obviously a lot of older people don't have mobiles which is a problem for them and ironically you can't even open a SAGA savings account without a mobile number.
