    • A mobile phone mine while I was out watching the football with all the lads.
    • Hi,   Stumbled upon this website and I see the general advice is ignore CRS and that they can't do anything but thought I'd make my own post as I'm still anxious and don't want debt collectors to turn up at my parents home.   Facts: - Joined Xercise4less in June, 2017. I paid £11.99/m - Finished uni in July 2019, so I wanted to cancel membership as I was moving back home and the closest X4less gym would be 50miles away.  - I initially put in a freeze request (thinking it's to cancel). When I told my friend he said I need to fill in a different form to cancel the contract. - I was confused so I confirmed this with someone working at the gym. They explained even though my 12m contract has finished, in order to cancel the contract I would have to give 30 days notice using a form online and cancel my DD. - So I completed this online form that same week and canceled my DD a few days later.   * Fast-forward to 20th January 2020 *   - Received a letter (to my parents address) from CSR yesterday (20th). Asking me to pay £213.47 including their fee of £102.50. - I was at work when my parents send a pic of letter. Return address said HGC - a quick google search shows them as Hutchison Global Communications aka Three.  - What did I do next?  Since I didn't have the letter in front of me I asked my parents for the number & reference on the letter. - Then stupidly called CRS thinking its Three and it's regarding my recently cancelled phone contract.   What I told CRS on the phone: - When I found out it was about my cancelled gym contract I explained in detail several times how I correctly cancelled my contract back in July 2019 and I will not be paying the outstanding amount. I didn't even use the gym. I did say I may be open to paying the monthly fee. - Advisor said Harland got my freeze request but nothing else, no proof = you must pay or they will continue to purse me. He also said outstanding amount is not negotiable and me not using the gym is irrelevant. - I asked for Harlands contact details, CRS refused to give it to me because Harlands will not discuss this matter with me.   After 15mins of going around in circles, me explaining what happened and advisor saying I must pay, I finally I said I am not in the wrong here. I filled the form correctly, and it said 'submitted. If their system didn't receive my request it is not my fault and I cannot be held accountable for an error on their part. So I don't agree with the charges and will not pay it and ended the call.   Other info: - CRS said the charge of £213.47 is for membership from October 2019 - Dec 2019 + late fees + CRS fees. - Told the advisor I no longer live at the address they sent the letter to. He asked for new address and I refused to give this out, so they will add an additional £36ish for tracing my new address. - Apparently they sent several letter to my old address but I know they didn't because I still have friends living at that address who would have told me if anything addressed to me came through. - I believe the system didn't acknowledge my cancellation request since a freeze request was in place but that doesn't mean I owe them any money and definitely not £213.47.       Thanks in advance!      
    • Here are the above letters vanquis.compressed.pdf
    • This got me thinking. There are only 4 parking bays on the site. They charge 50p for 1 hour, £1.00 for 2 hours, £1.50 for  3 hours and £2.00 for 24 hours. Yes, £2 for 24 hours! How is this site profitable? Do parking companies run these types of sites with a business model that is focussed more on issuing PCNs that intimidate motorists who lack knowledge of the law into paying up?

I lease a van. Just received a PCN from parking Eye stating I entered London Gateway Services at 06:45 am and left at 16:08 pm on 15/01/18. The leas company have paid this straight off with a £30 admin fee on top.

 

I was there, had a coffee, but left shortly after to do a days work which consisted of ten calls all over North London. I then called in on my way home for a brief natural break.

 

Their cameras clearly did not register me leaving in the morning.

 

Every one of my calls is time stamped and GPS noted and I also wear a CCTV camera which I hope will show my van nowhere near the Services between the times shown.

 

Because I have only just got this on the 19.01.18 (takes that long to get through the lease company) its outside the 28 day period.

 

I am now thinking of a Moneyclaim online for the full £90 with my evidence. Thoughts anyone?

OK, just so we're 100% clear.

 

Have the lease company paid ParkingLie or just given ParkingLie your details?

If the lease company haven't already paid it. Have ParkingLie been paid any money at all?

 

Do you have a copy of your lease agreement? If so, what does it say in your lease about fines and statutory charges? This is neither of those, so if it doesn't specifically mention anything else, then the lease company may also be on a sticky wicket and will be refunding your £30 as well.

Sorry

I should have made it clear.

 

I’m thinking of sticking a money claim online against ParkingEye.

 

They have issued a pcn incorrectly against the vehicle which wasn’t there, and I can prove it.

 

That meant I incurred a £30 fee due to their actions.

 

I reckon it’s winnable even if they appear in Court.

 

Oh, and Parking Eye have been paid their £60

OK then. This means that you can pretty much go to town on ParkingLie.

 

If you have definitive proof that the vehicle was not where they say it was.

 

1. They have incorrectly issued a parking charge notice. Breach of their own (so called) contract and the BPA Ltd CoP for AOS members.

2. They have requested the keeper details from the DVLA. Breach of their KADOE contract with the DVLA and the Data Protection Act. (The latter may be an action that only the lease company can take, not sure).

3. Assuming that you were named (by the lease company) as the hirer of the vehicle, ParkingLie have then processed your details illegally in breach of the DPA.

 

You'll probably also have the basis of a strong case against the lease company as well.

 

Therefore, your claim against ParkingLie could be a great deal more than just the £90 that you're out of pocket! An action for their breach of the DPA alone could run to around £750, and there are plenty of County court cases where people have been awarded £250 (some more) for a PPC's breach of the DPA.

 

You're going to need to do some research but start with Google v Vidal-Hall and VCS v Phillip, and have a good long read of the "Parking Pranksters" blog. http://parking-prankster.blogspot.co.uk/

 

As well as taking these clowns to court. You have the perfect grounds for formal written complains to the BPA Ltd, the ICO and your MP (there's a private members bill progressing through parliament at the moment regarding PPC's)

 

I'd be having an absolute field day if I was you! :thumb:

let us be clear about something,

parking lie have asked the lease c for some money and they have handed it over.

that is up to them what they do,

it doesnt create any liabilty on your part so you have to take action against the lease co.

 

What you can show the lease co is proof that you werent there and they have been robbed blind and you will be happy to turn up in court when they sue PE to get back the money that they have lost due to the false representation of PE

 

This is standard "double dipping".

I would be making it clear to the lease co that you are going to sue them for the £90 as it is not a fine but an erroneous speculative invoice that you would have dealt with withourt having to pay a bean if they had done what they are entitled to do and passed on your details as the driver.

 

At the moment you have no interaction with PE so you cant sue them.

The lease co may well have cause to sue them for a breach of the DPA as they had no reasonable cause to obtain the keeper details, a two bit faulty camera system isnt "reasonable cause ".

 

Now get on to the lease co in writing and give them 14 days to undo the damage they have done and if they dont issue a court claim for breach of contract as your lease agreement wont have anything about paying conmen in it.

Apologies, I'd read that as the OP had paid the £60 to ParkingLie and had paid a further £30 (probably plus VAT) to the lease company.

 

If the lease company has just stumped up the money to ParkingLie, as EB says, it's the lease company that you go after. The fact that they've been suckered into paying isn't your problem. You weren't liable for it so they're going to have to swallow it or take ParkingLie to court themselves to get their money back.

 

You don't owe anyone a single shekel over this invoice from ParkingLie and the lease company had better raid the petty cash and give you your money back.

this is why the parking cowboys make £300 million a year between them when the amount they would make if they obeyed all of the relevant laws would be in the tens of thousands instead.

 

It is big business and mostly misrepresentation but the system always leans towards the money.
