I live in Scotland

 

Last autumn I parked in a retailers car park and done some shopping at that particular retailers. I was gone for just under an hour and then drove home.

 

A few weeks later I received a parking charge notice stating I had overstayed my 2 hour limit which was untrue. I wanted to contact them but I was advised not to contact them what so ever.

 

I've ignored a few of their letters but have just received a threatening letter from a DRA called Debt Recovery Plus.

 

What's the best course of action?

Ignore it. They and the parking company cannot even touch you in scotland. Who was the parking company?

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..

 

 

If my advice helps you, click the star icon at the bottom of my post and feel free to say thanks

You could just write back saying that they must provide full evidence of any breach of the parking conditions or ignore until they do.

 

Presumably there is time dated pictures showing your entrance and exit ?

 

Not sure whether in Scotland these companies are issuing court claims or not ?

We could do with some help from you.

In their letter there was a photo of me entering and leaving the car park however the time stamp on the exit was at least an hour out.

The company is G24 Ltd.

 

Just to be clear I live in Scotland but the car park was in Scotland too.

 

The advice i have seen is either ignore ( unless a court claim is issued) or challenge based on the fact that you complied with the parking conditions.

Do not contact DR+. , a toothless debt collector, or Zenith when you get that letter.

 

G24 do not do court in England let alone Scotland.

 

So ignore is the advice.

DR+ are just rentathreats so never waste a stamp on them.

 

 

If G24 threaten to take the matter further they are well and truly stuffed

so in the unlikely event of them getting in touch again come back here

and we will compose a short letter for you.

 

As explained they cannot rely on the PoFA as in England,

there is no trespass and if they claim a contractual breach then that is doomed

as it has to be proved by them that you entered into a contract in the first place.

The Citizens Advice Scotland site is wrong then, as it states they can issue court claims. It mentions the Barry Beavis case so presume advice is up to date.

We could do with some help from you.

Court claims can be issued as long as the parking co can prove breach of contract by the driver

and can identify the driver.

 

 

They cant use any keeper liability so it makes it difficult for them to acess the DVLA database without telling lies,

which most of them are not averse to

 

 

but they will probably drop the matter when their shinanigans becomes public knowledge via a newspaper story.

Dear Argyll

 

Last summer i rec'd a nice letter from Euro car park's informing me

i had committed the heinous crime of an overstay in Tesco's carpark Linlithgow .

 

 

The letter even had a nice picture of my car driving in and out of the car park

,they invited me to part with lots of my ill gotten gains .

I checked back here for for an update on the Scottish question

" ignore or not ignore" they all said ignore so i did

 

Euro carparks then got there well hard mate DR+ to send me a threatogram for the readies

.Clucking bell i thought to myself the games a foot !!!

 

 

However i remained strong then the 2nd threatogram arrived which nearly broke me !

 

 

i played hard to get and heard nothing since ! they don't write,call or send flowers any more .

 

 

Its been some months now since their last letter and i fear i played too hard to get

 

 

.I watch for the postman every day only to be disappointed

 

If you want to be loved by DR+ or one of those nice PPC's write back

or Just ignore and follow what the nice Ladies and Gentlemen on here say

G24 do not do court in England let alone Scotland.

 

So ignore is the advice.

 

Well I received the inevitable letter from Zenith a few days ago. They have offered me a discounted settlement of almost half of what they claim is owed. Presumably I should continue to ignore them?

Read the small feint print on the bottom of the Zenith letter to find out who they really are...

 

The advice has not changed.

They will ofetn keep trying as they hvae now spent £15.90 and want to recover that money. DR+ want to look tough so people keep giving them £15 to write letters

 

Where do you get the figure £15.90 from?

£15 they charge for the letters and 90p for their last envelope and stamp which they seem to have used their own initiative to send (one of the reasons they ask for £160-it doesnt go to the parking co but to them and they pay out afterwards if they feel like it. As they are not licenced deposit takers nor have a consumer credit licence should you pay them and they dont hand over the money the debt still exists so another reason for ignoring them).
