    • Hi as this appears to be about a Parking Charge from a PPC,   I have moved your thread to the Private Land parking Forum, where you should get advice targeted to the situation   could you give some history about what the Invoice was for  and who the parking Contractor is  Did you appeal the charge, and it looks like you have had letters from the dreaded useless Gladstones demanding payment  Could you give the information asked for on this sticky and also post the  letter from gladstones to see if it is a Letter Before Claim/Action?    
    • it is also unlawful to change the ownership of a vehicle [or goods] to avoid enforcement action upon them. and this was done after you had already replied to the council regarding the outstanding ticket(s).   be careful upon pursuing a resolution arguing this point.   you could have quite easily changed ownership to gain a parking permit some months previously when getting the first windscreen ticket.              
    • I would start off by sending the bank an SAR. Which bank is it?
    • I agree with you DX100, but N/W don't want to play ball and send a copy of the agreement after 3 requests.  How will this stand if it goes to Court?
    • Sorry if this is in the wrong section as not sure where exactly its best suited.   So, we got the bank statement the other day & noticed 23 separate Xbox in game credit debits for Fortnite for £7.99 each over a 4 week period.  Now the daughter insists she didn't order anything.  And whilst most will say "of cause she would and just denying it etc" well, I'm not going to say I believe her even though I'm assuming using real cash to buy in game credit comes with a clear notification that your using real money (and stating the amount each time) to buy such in game credit.  And whilst I still need to check the Xbox security settings to see if as I think I did, I did set a security pin for purchases a few things are puzzling me on a legal footing and that mainly what I want to ask about.   As the bank statement indicates the card in question is an old card I had replaced and cancelled a while ago, about the time these transactions started.  When I ordered the new replacement I asked for the previous card to be cancelled.  2 weeks later I had to report the replacement card stolen\lost abroad and ordering another again asking for that card to be cancelled to prevent unauthorized use and money being taken from the bank account.   So, in the first instance I've already contacted the bank to enquire how and why they have allowed payments from an old debit card I had replaced and cancelled?.  They suggest that the card was never cancelled when the replacement was ordered and that the old card would remain valid until the expire date in a couple of years time!!!.  I asked them how on earth this can be the case as the replacement card has a completely different number and ordering the replacement should trigger (as per my request) cancellation and usage of said card.  The bank is suggesting otherwise as because the card was valid when setting up Xbox live that the card can always be used even if replaced regardless of reason it was replaced or if we cancelled the card.  They justified this action by saying the payments are continuous payments (similar to direct debit) and that's why they went through and referred me to Microsoft.   I pushed the issue and said they are not continuous payments but single individual 1 off payments that by nature (in game credit) and the number of payments (23 x £7.99) they could never claim them to have been continuous payments as a pre existing agreement for such payments for the game in question would have to exist and have existed when the card was valid which it doesn't.  And therefore these payments should not have been made because they are neither continuous payments and come from an old debit card that was replaced and cancelled.  The bank sort of agreed that these payments maybe are not continuous payments yet are now unsure where I stand.  So I have been referred to there disputes department.   Feeling I'm going to get the same run around on the rights over taking payments from an old replaced card that was supposed to be cancelled, I'm wanting to know what members think on a legal footing?.  As its like the bank saying I can use the same old & replaced debit card details to order items online because its still in date even if replaced & cancelled which I find highly unlikely!.

I had signed up to arena digital to have a full screen advert in a builders merchants,

 

everything was fine until

 

December I got an invoice from them for £990.00.

 

I told that I had paid all monies due,

 

but unknown to me it was a rolling contract. this is where the problem starts,

 

When you sign for the advert they don't tell you,

you have to give 12 months notice,

therefore if you wanted to only have one year

then you had to cancel the same day that you sign the contract?

 

I got a company called Parker Newbury chasing me for the debt,

after agreed a payment plan and made the 1st payment,

as I get 4 updates I decided to amend my advert,

 

When I got to the site I found that my advert only covered 2/3rds of the screen,

the other 1/3rd was being used by the Builders merchants.

 

I complained to Parker Newbury who have now threatened to make my company insolvent

 

any help anyone

So you arranged payment to a debt that you didnt challenge and might even be unenforceable though possible unfair terms in the contract?


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

We are in a similar situation with Arena Digital, where we signed up to advertising in Builders Merchants and after the 2 year contract we are being perused for another 2 years. We were never informed this was a rolling contract and that 12 months cancellation was required. The advert was not forfilled by Arena so we have a legal dispute against them which our solicitor has put to them. We are now being threatened with a Winding up Order by Parker Newbury who claim there is no legal reason for non payment. Has anyone else got these cowboys chasing them for money?

As the ad wasnt as agreed you could do the same to them so I doubt if they will actually follow through with their threat.

Hello

 

Did you get anywhere with this? We have a similar situation where we posted a letter to cancel, but as we did not send my recorded delivery they are chasing us for debt for a contract which we already cancelled.

Arena digital productions Ltd are now in liquidation :-)

 

I too was fobbed off by the company and their lying sales rep.

 

Cut a long story short I ended up paying Parker Newbury £10 per month (it was all they were getting off me)Parker Newbury No longer replies nor does the account accept my debt payment.

 

Good riddance to a shambolic company.
