    • To add to the weight of evidence this is fraud, do you have (or can you get) proof of what the cost of the Special Delivery was?. If they paid for the weight of an envelope containing a piece of paper, they won't have paid for the cost of sending a laptop (given it is much heavier) ...... You should also contact ActionFraud.
    • @dx100uk, I'm afraid you've got this wrong. My fear of compromising my defence wasn't with regards my response to DCB Legal's initial letter per se. It was more in reference to any subsequent advice posted on this thread by other forum members and I was only being wary due to the numerous instances when some have cautioned about parking companies and their legal reps trawling these pages to stay a step ahead.   As I did also state however, I'm happy to provide full details of that initial reply to DCB Legal and have therefore reproduced it below. Thanks.

    • 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!

Hi

 

I wonder if anyone be able to help, I'm posting on behalf of my father who a number of years ago (May 2011)received a PCN from Excel parking, at the he ignored this (he actually was only parked for less than 5 minutes before he returned to find him being ticketed-he hadn't realised it was a payable carpark as when he realised he returned)

 

He today received a letter from Rossendales Collect stating that the debt has been sold onto them and they can offer a reduced payment of £100 and in accordance to 'something' act they can recover debt up to 6 years. (unfortunately I don't have the letter-my mum and dad are worried) Im hoping to reassure them.

 

Rossendales haven't included the date of the 'offence' in the letter nor does it ask who was the driver at the time. should my dad ignore, write to Rossendales asking for dates etc or pay up??

 

Many thanks in advance.

Sorry have just phoned my mum-dad was parked in disabled bay and displaying his blue badge-when he spotted that it was a payable carpark he returned thinking he may have to pay. Then he spotted the attendant who said that the badge wasn't clearly displayed enough

Was the original ticket from the Council or a private company. Rossendales Collect are just a common or garden Debt Collector with very little powers.

Hi he was parked at a retail park-the ticket was from a company called Excell. (I think they are a private company rather than instructed by the council?)

You can tell him to ignore them or respond by saying the debt is denied in its entirety.

In truth these pre nov 2012 lemon debts will never get very far and your father doesnt owe a penny as the law allowing people to chase the keeper didnt exist at the time.

Thank you I will pass this onto him. Odd though that Rossendales doesn't include the date of the 'ticket'. If he replies should we mention that we have no recollection of the event as they have failed to include date/time?

 

Many thanks
