    • 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!

Have you heard from RLP yet ?

 


hello...update...i received a letter on 28th march saying i had to pay £89.20 "due to my actions" and today i have received another basically saying that they know ive been on an internet forum and stated that it was a mistake and in light of this info being classed as a defense,they have advised their client to drop the case and wish me to ignore the first letter...im happy with this because it was a genuine mistake in the first place,but i must admit im a bit freaked out that they know it was me on here? Can anybody shed any light on how they came to know this?

They trawl this and other sites constantly, and as you specifically mentioned the goods involved it probably wasn't that difficult for them to put two and two together. There's no CIA stuff going on here ;) yet!!! :peep:

hi renegadeimp and everyone else who replied ...yes the letter does actually say it is classed as a defense so they have advised Tesco to drop the matter...can't believe that they actually look through these kinds of forums! Is that really how they find out who's who!? Sort of makes me feel like were being spied on and makes me more aware of what i actually post online! I did worry that they had somehow got access to my personal info that i used when signing up,relieved to hear actually that this isn't the case

i would really like to thank everyone who took time to reply and help during this ordeal

will that actually be the last i hear from it now do you think?

In which case, the whole ordeal has actually been for the best. An internet connection to your home can- and at some point probably will- do you far more damage and loss than RLP ever could in their wildest dreams!

Well done to you. :whoo:

 

The problem with forums (fora?) is that anyone can look and I am sure RLP spend half their day looking here with gnashing teeth at the potential loss to them.:whoo:

 

Even though we ask everyone to be as anonymous as possible, RLP can put two and two together but most times they get 5 and on occasion get it right.

 

As for the letter. that is Bovine Excrement of the highest order. RLP don't advise their client. They drop it with no contact with Tesco.

 

Leep it safe though as it admits they are not following through.

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

For a theft conviction to work, they would have to show intent. I must admit, I think this is the first time that I have seen "a mistake" being a reason for RLP to stop. Perhaps Tesco also look at this site & don't like to see evidence of innocent people being chased in their name?

Nah 2grumpy. As far as we know, Tesco have nothing to do with RLP when they chase someone. RLP simply use the name as if they are acting in some sort of official capacity, when in reality they have pretty much no contact with Tesco apart from giving them a very small percentage of any money paid to them.

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..

Agreed - but something made RLP turn round pretty quickly in this instance. I don't think that RLP has stopped the chase in similar circumstances before. So maybe someone gave them a little help with a reality check?
