The more I think about this, the more the whole method seems wrong (and again, I'm inviting comments by doing this).
I have no legal qualifications - just a fair bit of contract law experience - but things that stood out to me after I'd posted were as follows:
1. NPS have no kind of 'evidence of service' for their PCN's therefore how can they confidently claim anyone has received one unless the recipient responds to it (which it seems we are largely advised not to do).
2. Surely then the burden of proof falls to them to reproduce their original 'evidence' (i.e. the PCN) and with it, some evidence that the same was actually served/received (which of course they can't do unless they're sent recorded (which they're not).
3. It would seem patently unreasonable (and therefore difficult to prosecute) to present a demand for 'payment within 14 days' for an claim/event which allegedly took place over two years ago and for which they (NPS) cannot demonstrate the above-mentioned evidence of service.
Or have I just explained the reasons for not responding in the first place?
There's a bit of me that's tempted to ask them for a copy of my partner's PCN as I know this was fundamentally flawed as I've already explained. My daughter's is a different matter. There's more of me that wants to just make it go away though rather than grandstanding for the sake of my own ego!
See what you all think?
Letters attached - obviously the third image (back of the page) is common to both.
Since posting, I've found another mention of a 2017 Cross St. ticket coming back to life yesterday (11th) and wonder how many more?
Further comments welcomed.
So this is alleged fraud, rather than a normal debt situation.
Why have UK authorities not been involved, if the person has lived in the UK ? Perhaps they have tried and got nowhere, so use these interpol red notices to have them detained in a third party country.
I have read online articles that say these interpol notices are being abused by Banks based in UAE.
