    • doesn't matter you've admitted about the DN and anyway where have you done that and to whom?   by assignment arrows are the creditor regardless to your acking of that fact or not.      
    • Just ignore the letter.   Block/bounce their emails or let them come through so you know what they're up to, and keep us posted.............   😎
    • Thanks DX,   I've already admitted that a default notice was served in 2010 by MBNA, so it seems I might be left hoping that they're unable to produce the original CCA.   I've never acknowledged Arrrow as the creditor and continue to pay MBNA.  Is that in my favour?   Cheers,   Richard.
    • For PCN's received through the post [ANPR camera capture]       please answer the following questions.       1 Date of the infringement  10/07/2019       2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date]  12/07/19      3 Date received  13/07/19      4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [Y/N?/    Yes      5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event?  yes      6 Have you appealed? [Y/N?] post up your appeal]  yes  Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up  yes      7 Who is the parking company?  Civil enforcement      8. Where exactly [carpark name and town]    10B QUEENS ROAD, CONSETT, DH8 0BH       For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. Yes    …………………..     This is what I sent to CE appeal in my own words   Reason For Appeal: Firstly I had an appointment at that time with the dentist. My last visit 2 years ago the car park was free and was not aware of the new parking system.   The sign at the front is very obscure especially turning right into the car park. Where I did park, the sign opposite was turned 90 degrees making it hard to see.   The door at the surgery was wedged open when I entered not realizing there was a sign relating to the new system . I cannot remember if there was any signs inside the surgery but once in I always pick up a magazine to read until the dentist is ready to see me.      My statement and evidence to POPLA. in response to CE evidence highlighting main arguments.   Par 18 . The image submitted from the Appellant of a sign slightly turned is still readable and is not obscured...….. Me Not from where I was parked. A photo from the bay shows a pole with the sign facing away.  Par 18 . Furthermore, it highlights that the Appellant was aware of the signage on the site and failed to comply with the terms and conditions regardless.......  Me I treat this paragraph with contempt. There is nothing to "highlight" here as I maintain I did not see any signage; Regardless ? I could have legally parked right outside the Surgery as there were spaces at the time but having "regard" for disabled and elderly, parked further away having to cross a busy road to the Surgery. Par 20....,. Furthermore, the Appellant failed to utilise the operator’s helpline phone number,,, (displayed at the bottom of signage) to report the occurrence, or to request advice on what further action could be taken.... Me How could I have done this ? I only realized there were signs there when the PCN arrived. Summary. I stand by statements and maintain that I did not see any signage entering or leaving the car park. The main sign at the entrance is too small and easily missed when you have to turn right though busy traffic and once through carefully avoid pedestrians, some walking their dogs. The main sign is blank at the back. When you leave the car park I would have noticed the private parking rules if the writing was on both sides. Roadworks signs close to the parking sign at the time did not help either. [see photo] CE evidence is flawed, illegal and contemptuous. Photos submitted are from months ago, Today I have driven into the car park and noticed the same signs turned 90 degrees including the one opposite my bay. CE have done nothing to rectify this disregarding my evidence and the maintenance of the car park. Showing number plates is a total disregard to patients privacy and I object to these photos being allowed as evidence on the grounds that they may be illegal.    POPLAS assessment and decision....unsuccessful   Assessor summary of operator case   The operator states that the appellant’s vehicle was parked on site without a permit. It has issued a parking charge notice (PCN) for £100 as a result. Assessor summary of your case   The appellant states that he parked on site to attend a dental appointment. He states that the terms of the site had changed since the last time he parked two years ago. He states that signage at the entrance to and throughout the site did not make the terms clear. The appellant has provided various photographs taken on and around the site. Assessor supporting rational for decision   The appellant accepts that he was the driver of the vehicle on the date in question. I will therefore consider his liability for the charge as the driver.   The operator has provided photographs of the appellant’s vehicle taken by its automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras. These photographs show the vehicle entering the site at 14:17 and leaving the site at 15:13. It is clear that the vehicle remained on site for a period of 56 minutes.   Both the appellant and operator have provided photographs of the signs installed on the site. The operator has also provided a site map showing where on site each sign is located.   Having reviewed all of the evidence, I am satisfied that signage at the entrance to the site clearly states: “Permit Holders Only … See car park signs for terms and conditions”.   Signs within the site itself clearly state: “DENTAL PRACTICE PERMIT HOLDERS ONLY … ALL PATIENTS AND VISITORS MUST REGISTER FOR A PERMIT AT THE PRACTICE RECEPTION ... IF YOU BREACH ANY OF THESE TERMS YOU WILL BE CHARGED £100.”   The signs make the terms of parking on the site clear, are placed in such a way that a motorist would see the signs when parking and are in line with the British Parking Association (BPA) Code of Practice.   The operator has provided evidence to show that a search for the appellant’s vehicle has been carried out against the list of vehicles for which a valid permit was held on the date in question. The appellant’s vehicle does not appear on this list.   The appellant states that he parked on site to attend a dental appointment . I accept that this may have been the case, however I do not accept that this entitled the appellant to park on site outside of the terms.   The appellant states that the terms of the site had changed since the last time he parked two years ago. The operator’s photographs of the signage on site are dated 27 March 2019.   It is clear based on these photographs that the terms had been in place for at least three months by the time the appellant parked, which I am satisfied was a reasonable period for any regular user of the site to adapt to any change to the terms.   The appellant states that signage at the entrance to and throughout the site did not make the terms clear. He has provided various photographs taken on and around the site.   As detailed above, I am satisfied based on the evidence as a whole that signage made the terms sufficiently clear. I am satisfied from the evidence that the terms of the site were made clear and that the appellant breached the terms by parking without registering for a permit.   I am therefore satisfied that the PCN was issued correctly and I must refuse this appeal.   docs1.pdf

Hi folks,

 

Seriously dyslexic, I know this is an wrong place but I'm hoping somebody would be kind enough to move for me and my say thank you in advance to everyone for reading this. Microphone off

 

I have an ongoing dispute with npower and I need a little information on whether this is acceptable for a freedom of information request.

 

About five years ago I moved into a new property, rented took a dual fuels contract with them giving me a discount on both services.

 

Shortly into the contract I started having problems with mental health issues (ADHD, bipolar disorder among others) and I missed a few payments. They split the bills up, I now have letters with three different account numbers for each service, as well as some of the letters and bills, addressed to the owner/occupier rather than in my name.

 

In some of my clearer periods, I’ve attempted to clear this up with npower telephonically as well as through writing to no avail.

 

Telephonically I would call up explain who I was what had happened, they would take details ask me for meter readings as well as a meter identification numbers which I would supply. Consistently the response would be the same.

 

Npower: that doesn’t make sense, are you sure you have supplied the correct details.

Me: yes I have indeed would you like me to send photos.

Npower: yes please, if you could email them to me and then I will get back to you as soon I can.

 

I’ve been through this process several times and no one ever gets back to me, except for the debtors team or collections team whatever.

 

In one of my less clear moments, they managed to get an entry warrant because I wasn’t paying attention to my mail, when the bailiff served the warrant I showed him all my evidence. I also showed evidence of me trying to resolve the issue. He reported back to npower and went through the exact same procedures I had, the exact same results.

He chose not to enforce the warrant telling me that if he had seen the evidence prior to going to court he would not have.

He reported back to Npower that he was unable to fit the meter, he gave me great advice on how to block Npower from trying to enforce the warrant for the remaining six weeks of its validity.

 

I have also tried to resolve the issue through writing, where unfortunately we cannot seem to manage clear concise communication that brings out an end result.

 

They have accused me of tampering with the equipment which proved to be erroneous.

 

Somewhere in between April and June 2014 a service agent made entry taking photographs of all the equipment, he admitted that they had mismatching information and were in the process of resolving the issue in our stairwell….

 

I sent in a letter of complaint which started dealing with the issue but that broke down rather rapidly I'm still not too sure who or why (having had an accident in October 2013 to which I am now just recently fully recovered) but still seeking medical attention for related problems.

 

I do not believe this issue can be resolved without third party involvement.

 

The electricity accounts that they are preparing to take me to court to recover arrears (dated 2 March 2015 your outstanding balance notice of intention to apply for a warrant of entry and notice of intention to file a default on your credit file) is the account that they have had continuity of my name.

 

Ideally if we are going to court for something I want both fuels together, as the contract stated is dual fuel contract. And the serious breakdown in communication has always occurred when trying to resolve the identifiers with the gas account and equipment.

 

They have rewired our entire stairwell and can only presume that it is my flat is holding up as all the rest of the stairwells seem to have been wired up.

 

What I want from Npower to bring about final resolution:

 

1.) To return my fuels to a duel fuels contract with discounts applied for the preceding years.

2.) I believe that throughout this process I have also been put on higher fuel charges if this is so I want them returned to the contractually agreed prices.

3.) I want them to remove all the charges as well as interest charges that they have added to my account both manually as well as automatically(Call out charges, letter charges, the first warrant charges)

4.) And if we can agree on this then it’s a matter of compensation.

 

What I want from in Npower by way of freedom of information act:

 

1.) A full statement of accounts (asked for several times never provided).

 

2.) A copy of all letters sent to me in paper format. (ADHD, dyslexia, eye distress it easier for me to have all of our communication in a paper format so I can identify specific areas that I would like to dig deeper.) I believe there were changes made to my account at some point in the last 12 months, but I'm not sure exactly where or how. I have a lot of communication here but due to mental health issues I cannot be sure I have all of it, and in order to go court I need to be clear and concise.

 

3.) A copy of all communications in digital format (including all metadata, manual changes to my account, all call recordings)

 

4.) Basically anything to do with me, I want to know who they sent my personal information to under what circumstances and for what purpose.

Agree with citizenb about the SAR. FOI requests only apply to government departments, councils etc, not companies.

There is no mystery and no great trick to an SAR.

 

Simply write to them. Head up your letter "statutory disclosure request"

 

And simply put "This is a statutory request for disclosure of all personal data which you hold on me pursuant to the Data Protection Act.

 

I require you to disclose all data which you hold on me including correspondence, telephone recordings, screen notes, memorandums, and any other data which you hold on me in any form whatsoever and in respect of any matter.

 

I enclose a statutory fee of £10 and you have 40 days to comply."

 

Put at least that – and add anything else you want. They will treat it just the same. They either won't comply or that only comply in part. The only time they will get a move on will be if you serve in court papers – and even then they seem to hand it to some paralegal of theirs call Kenneth Bradley Bradley Radley Madly whose quality of drafting as far as I've seen is extremely poor.

 

Npower seem to be incapable of running their business correctly whatever they are trying to do.

 

No doubt the execs are all enjoying huge bonuses and slapping each other on the back and oblivious to the mess that they are causing.

As BF has advised, there is no requirement to provide a list of what you require - the request is for all data they hold on you.

So update on this,

 

Got in contact with the citizens advice bureau who passed me onto the extra help unit. I pretty much sent the first post omitting the very last statement. Had a chat with the person at citizens advice, really frustrating with ADHD, was passed on to the extra help unit.

 

Dear Mr Dean,

 

Please find attached our complaints acknowledgement letter with more information on the Extra Help Unit.

 

Kind Regards,

 

I am going to be sending off the SAR request on Friday (financial restrictions) thank you so much for all your help folks.

 

Edited for clarity
