Hi all,

I'm posting on behalf of a friend of mine

 

, he received a parking fine which he paid online on April 6th,

he has deleted the confirmation of payment email sometime ago.

 

Recently he has received a letter saying he has not paid and they are now demanding a larger payment or they will take him to court.

 

How should he go about proving he has paid, bank statement etc

 

. Or should he just ignore them.

 

Sorry the post is a little vague, but that was all the info he gave me.

 

Thanks in advance hob :!::!::!:

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

If this is a council PCN, he does not have a letter saying they will take him to court - so it is important to know whether it is a council PCN.

 

If it is, it would be best to find out:

 

1. When the PCN was issued

2. How much the PCN was at that point (not the discounted amount, the full amount)

3. How much he paid, and on what date

4. How much they are asking for now

 

Also, what is the title of the document he just received (Notice to Owner, Charge Certificate, Order for Recovery etc).

 

Can you get all this info and let us know?

Thanks for the replies everyone,

I have managed to gather a little more info on the subject

It was on private land not council, but he could not remember the company name

The Pcn was issued on April 6th

The full amount of the fine was £100.00

He paid £60.00 on April 7th

Now thet are asking for £150.00.

As for the documentation and the company name he could not remember. I will be talking to him again in the near future, so any advice would be much appreciated.

This is posted on the Local Authorities Parking part of the site. The procedures for private companies are different, and there's a separate forum for those. You'd be better off posting there - look under "Motoring Subforums" and you'll find it.

as long as he has some kind of proof that a payment was made then the best thing would be to invite them to stop pussy footing around and pay the court fee and make complete fools of themselves when they are proven to be incompetent crooks.

Dont be nice in the wording and dont give them any proof of payment at this stage, make them spend their money being idiots.

I would bet that this is from a tame DCA anyway and not the parking company so nothing will happen because it cant. If it is from someone like Debt Recovery Plus then just ignore them, dont even reply unless you want to report them for harassment at a later stage.
