    • debt buyer never have any info, bar one line in a debt buying portfolio spreadsheet that get loaded into the pc that automatically spews out threat-o-gram, then the claims to robocourt
    • Thanks dx.    Would I not SAR Asset Link Capital as it was assigned to them in 2016 (according to the POC)?   To provide some context, I'm familiar with attending hearings etc and have fought and won a couple of battles.  I don't mind risking a couple of K in extra costs to give it a shot but I need to feel that there is at least a chance of success.   The card was originally an Egg card taken back in 2000 and then sold to BC who then sold to Asset Link Captial (no5) Limited.   When I did a CCA request to BC back in 2015, they provided reconstituted T&C's that post dated when I took the card out with Egg and a Credit Agreement for BC (which was clearly made up as the account was with EGG!).   Appreciate you are being careful to provide advice and not push someone to do something that could end up costing more money, I'm up for the fight though!

    • you wont get eric and that doesn't solve your problem as thats mainly to do with private parking set asides really as most judges now view PPC Backdoor CCJ with dissent and grant it regardless.    i absolutely hate link and paul burrell he built up a £1B+ empire of wealth solely by conning debtors into paying debts they mostly didn't even owe, but in this instance you are on very shaky ground.   me pers i'd not even debated it and i'd just gone for it win or bust. once you get the set aside it should be plain sailing.   but you came for advice and i can't not be truthful here.   the only otherway to better gauge you chances is to SAR Barclaycard , get everything they hold. that will show you the cards that Link will have to play with , they might well be pants.      
    • I have read everything about these cowboys but need a little advice. I was issued my fine on 9/12/19 but only received a dated letter on 11/01/20.   Ive had all the threatening letters from DRP and now Zenith and ignored them all. My wife was driving our car but yet its my dad who's getting all the letters as he's the registered owner.   They managed to get my number and rang me today, I busted them for being the same company but the guy on the phone was super aggressive.   I said to him Ive spoken to Trading Standards and they told me by law a ticket has to be issued within 14 days of the offence. But as you can see it was over a month,   I said this to the aggressive dude on the phone who actually knew way to much about parking fines. I think they are actually under the same umbrella as VCS also.   He was firing back that the law doesn't state that and I should look at 2012 laws or something and the DVLA, and it takes time to get my details from the DVLA to issue my charge????   Does this mean anything to anyone pls Regards   Stuart

    • I’m in desperate need of help
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

I've noticed this sign displayed in a few petrol stations recently, and would be interested in other member's views.


Although I appreciate the problem of no-pay drive-aways, I don't think this is a proper or lawful way to address it.


The purported 'contract' is badly written in a google-translate legal style, and in parts makes no sense at all.



I dislike the hectoring tone, and the use of a Police image to imply official endorsement.



And I don't think that the display of this notice creates a contract with effect or enforceability anyway.


Firstly because there is no acceptance.

I do not believe they can foist a contractual duty upon customers by simply displaying a sign.



I could put a sign in my car window say

"any fuel I buy will be priced at 1p per litre, please do not supply fuel if you do not accept these terms",

but no court would uphold it.



the alleged parties to the alleged contract are not clearly stated

(at the bottom of the notice there is a bizarre, rambling phrase which amounts to nothing).



Who exactly am I contracting with here?

They appear to imply that this is a separate contract to the retail purchase of fuel, but the terms are wholly unclear.


And following from above,

if this is separate to my purchase of fuel then there is no consideration involved.



The author of the poster appears to dimly perceive that problem,

and purports that the customer receives value by being granted various options for payment (astonishing nonsense).


The end purpose of this exercise is that if one day I forget my wallet, or my credit card won't work in the POS terminal, they want me to pay a penalty.



This has happened to me twice in nearly 40yrs of driving, and on both occasions I have left my name and address and returned later to pay the cost of the drawn fuel 'over the counter'.



I have no intention of accepting any other arrangement, and I would not accept this process being foisted upon me.


So that's my opinion, would be interested in what others think?

load of BS me thinks.




please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..


if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, DCA;s -  would collapse overnight.


DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs - that's why they will never tell you they are not bailiffs and have absolutely zero legal powers on any debt.

Perhaps the private car parks racketeers are feeling the pinch, so they are chancing their arms elsewhere?



All of these are on behalf of a friend.. Cabot - [There's no CCA!]

CapQuest - [There's no CCA!]

Barclays - Zinc, [There's no CCA!]

Robinson Way - Written off!

NatWest - Written off!

Methinks you may be correct.


Gary Deegan is a director of Network Eye and this company is under 2 years old. He is a director of Parking Plus Ltd. and UKCPS


I feel these signs have no official standing.

In the event of a deliberate drive off, the police can take action but I fail to see how Forecourt Eye can do the same. I wonder if the fact the director is a member of a relevant ATA, they get automatic access to the DVLA database but by doing so will put them in breach of the requirements of their codes of practice.

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

Too our knowledge they run several companies from the same building sharing information on people and cars ( not allowed) according to companies house a nicholas fisher is also a director of both facewatch and forecourteye so are they also sharing images of facial recognition too sounds fishy to us. This is all run by ukcps car parking too our information received...contact the forecourts they run from and boycott them as this will hurt them so will then get rid of the cowboys.
