I have received a letter from B W Legal, stating that it is a `Discount Offer` to settle a PCN which they state has not been resolved.

 

Their letter is in the usual format.

 

Interestingly, they state that the contravention was dated 23rd June 2012, which I understand pre-dates the official inception date of POFA.

 

I do not have any memory of this alleged event as the car was only in my name for insurance purposes and belonged to my son.

 

As this pre-dates POFA, am I right to assume that if I state that I have no knowledge of the driver, especially after 6 years, they cannot enforce this?

Knowing BWL, they'll try their best to threaten and brow beat you in to paying.

 

If they're stupid enough to take court action, they've obviously got a big pot of their clients money that they're desperate to lose. They wouldn't stand a chance!

 

You are correct that POFA was not in force in June '12. It was enacted on 1st Oct '12, so there's absolutely no keeper liability before that date :thumb:

They have `kindly` given me until 2nd April to respond before they retract their `offer`.

Ill wait until the end of March and let them know about POFA. Maybe it will string along until 6 years is up on 23rd June ;-)

Thanks for your prompt response.

I wouldn't really matter if they came round to your house and dragged you to court by the hair in the morning. It wouldn't make their "case" any more legitimate or enforceable :lol:

 

I wouldn't bother wasting your time, energy and stamps on contacting BWL at all. Let 'em stew.

 

They don't have a case and they damn well know it. They're just hoping that you don't!

 

Contacting them *might* lead them to believe that you're going to roll over and pay if they apply enough pressure. Ignoring them leaves them wasting their money writing nasty letters to you. If you're really lucky, they'll dig out the red ink :thumb:

If they were to issue a speculative court claim, you would be able to give them a really good tolchocking in court, no keeper liability, why so long to issue claim, unlawful data processing as in your data from DVLA, great if they issued a claimform in May after GDPR comes into force.


We could do with some help from you.

ignore them, they are just hoping that you are daft enough to give this any credence. By ignoring you push the time along, they have to give you a certain amount of time to respond so answer this and they can speed things up. they know that this is going nowhere but are getting paid a pittance to send the letter with the promise of a bigger payday if you take the bait

No, I have not moved.

Yes, I am aware that it is almost Statute Barred.

I`m just surprised that they have suddenly sent this letter. Surely they know that it is pre-POFA?
