    • It would be worthwhile just to create a paper trail that proves your company has doen the right thing. I wouldnt mention the harassment at this stage.
    • under the Protection of Freedoms Act the parking co have to issue a notice ofr each event and where they use ANPR capture as in your case they are obliged to end out the notices within a specific timeframe and the wording of the notice must contain key phrases. As you have appealed if they got this wrong them you have lost the protection of the law. As for the charge (never a fine) going up if you appeal, that is unlawful but what can happen is that the time taken to consider the appeal means that it overruns the discount period. Now thet are supposed to consider each charge individually so again by lumping them together you have removed that protection in law but that is why they have written to you 20 times. Now the good news is that it is likely to be railway land and that means the byelaws count, not what APCOA say. Can you get us soem pictures of the entrance to the car park and any signs that are there and note exactly what size they are adn where they are located inreference to the entrance, height above ground level etc. What is normal for them is a sign in print that needs an electron microscope to read placed at the back of the car park in a space where you cannot easily get to without climbing boots. When you get the piccies post them up here along with a copy of their Notice to Keeper (redacted to remove personal details and any reference number, bar code etc) and their rejection letter
    • i received a letter from the court ( i cant remember what it was called ) but the claimant had ticked for mediation , i replied ticking mediation too. I recieved an email from a company offering mediation on 28/08/2019.. The company is here Email: scmreferrals@justice.gov.uk Post: Small Claims Mediation, HMCTS, PO Box 8793, Leicester, LE1 8BN   I was just going to tell this company that i hadn't received  a cca request reply or a cpr reply and the debt is probably statute barred.. but haven't got round to contacting this mediation company as i am unsure what to do/say
    • Thank you. Do you mean that even if they view the cctv they won't get the police to find me? I would have assumed that would happen. Also, it has been 1 week, I suppose the longer that goes by the less likely it is to happen. Thank you for replying. I know what I did was so wrong, I have no excuses. I have to sort out my life and mental health and I am doing that now.
    • Hello,   I park on a daily basis at Bicester North station. I buy a monthly parking ticket every month.   In the month of July I completely forgot for some reason. At no point did I receive a ticket on my car to notify me that I did not have a valid Parking ticket. I received no parking fine notices on my car during this period. The month of August I bought a monthly parking ticket again.   I have now just started to receive parking ticket notices in the post that I have been parking at the station without a valid ticket. It shows a photo of my car going in to the station and a photo of my car leaving the station. There are 20 tickets for the whole month of August @£50 per ticket going up to £85 per day if I do not pay within 14 days. OUCH!   Having walked around the station there are no signs or notices up anywhere that I can see that this is what is happening now. Forgetting to buy a ticket was a genuine mistake and I have copies of att the other 38 months I have bought a monthly ticket.   I appealed to APCOA in Sheffield. They sent me a standard letter for every single parking notice individually rejecting my appeal and to pay up. the fact that they sent me 20 letters back speaks volumes to reply to my one registered post letter.   Is this legal, don't they have to stick something on my car to alert me? APCOA also advices me that if I appeal the fine will automatically go up to £85 per ticket regardless of time frame. Any advice please?   Many Thanks

Hi Folks,

 

Does anybody know if Barclays are legally allowed to charge £30 for Paid Referral Charges on a business account?

 

I have month on month been hit hard with these charges and every month its getting harder to get out of the hole they are creating for me!

 

My personal account has the occassional Paid Referral Fee but this is charged at £8, although still a lot of money it is much more reasonable than the £30 on the Business Account.

 

How do I stand if I decide to go after them for a refund?

Hi Killa,

 

Reclaiming Business penalty chgs was pretty much stopped by the Supreme Court case that was started in 2007.

 

You do, of course, make a good point about the difference between personal a/c fees and business a/c fees - how can it cost any more to bounce a business payment than the personal one ??

 

You could have a look here for anything useful - http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/forumdisplay.php?196-Business-Bank-accounts-and-charges

 

If you are in Financial Difficulties, you could also read here - http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?387436-Letter-for-consideration-regarding-Hardship-or-Financial-Difficulty - and here - http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?387431-Letter-before-Action-Removal-of-Charges-under-Hardship-criteria-BCOBs-(update-21.04.2014)

 

It would be interesting to here if the bank is willing to justify the higher cost of bouncing a business pay't when BCOBs applies to small business too.

Thanks Slick.

 

Do you know of anybody that has taken a bank to court for recovery of these penalty charges since the OFT ruling?

 

I'm seriously tempted to give it a go.

Hi Killa,

 

I'm sorry to say I am NOT aware of any successes with business cases myself but DO read through threads in the first link in post #2 above.
