    • Yes, please fill in the sticky that HB posted - the more ammo we have against them, the better.   To answer your questions.   1.  You're right.  However the PPCs have complete contempt for the law and will pursue you regardless, hoping you will finally give in, or they'll get a default judgement, etc.   2.  You need to reply to the LBC and make it quite clear to the charlatans that you will be big trouble if they do do court.  We call this the "snotty letter" strategy.  Do a search on the forum for "snotty letter" and you'll see loads of examples.    3.  Again, you're right.   4.  The best way is to deal with the matter in two stages.  Firstly, concentrate on seeing off the ticket.  Then later, if you want revenge, sue them for breach of GDPR.
    • Thanks dx. I will ignore until I hear anything further from them.  
    • So, so far we have -   1.  Appalling signage with the £60/£100-ish charge in particular being illegible.  No PP either.   2.  Double dipping, you actually obeyed what was on their silly signs.   3.  No locus standi.  A blank unsigned template is not a letter, let alone a contract.   4.  Double recovery.  As well as £50 legal costs they have invented £60 Unicorn Food Tax.   WS in post 99 is useful for (1), (3) & (4)  https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/417771-cel-pcn-claimform-tenerife-buildings-station-road-south-gosforth-newcastle-ne3-1qd-claim-discontinued/page/4/#comments   WS in post 87 is useful for (1), (3) & (4)  https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/421029-opcdcb-legal-anpr-pcn-paoloc-now-claimform-overstay-st-johns-retail-park-wolves-claim-discontinued/page/4/#comments   WS in post 122 is again useful for (1), (3) & 4  https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/410445-ukcpmgladstones-windscreen-pcn-claimform-vista-centre-salisbury-rd-hounslow-tw4-6jq-claim-dismissed/page/5/#comments   WS in post 58 with comments in post 59 useful for (3) and (4)  https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/422971-excel-anpr-windscreen-pcn-claimform-brewery-st-car-park-chesterfield-on-0207-2018-claim-dismissed/page/3/#comments   I haven't got time to look at the lot, but there are probably useful WSs in the following (scroll down the pages till you come to the WS, which will always be an attachment)   https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/419899-ukcpmgladstones-spycar-pcn-claimform-no-stopping-trinity-park-birm-airport-claim-dismissed/   https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/414313-cpmbw-windscreen-pcns-bw-pap-loc-now-claimform-residential-car-park-the-citrus-building-maderia-road-bournemouth-claim-dismissed-with-costs/   https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/421756-vcs-pcn-claimform-broomfield-developements-broomspring-close-s37xa-claim-dismissed/   https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/429200-excel-pcn-claimform-broomhill-roof-car-park-in-sheffield-claim-dismissed/   https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/419312-vcs-pcn-claimform-no-stopping-in-restricted-zone-bristol-airport-claim-dismissed/    
    • I don't understand why Leave.eu would want to leave and then stay in Europe anyway. I'm sure you don't either, TJ.    
    • Because we've seen the PPCs' antics a thousand times.  They always refuse appeals.  On every occasion they send out the same standard "threatening" letters.  In each case they then involve a third party to pretend the matter has somehow got more serious and the sum owed has increased.  It's got nothing to do with "sticking by their guns", it's what they always do, whether their case is good or if it's pants.   What do you think an unbiased judge would decide when you prove there was no sign at the entrance, just one in the car park at the height of the stratosphere, that the cafè owners had to stick up their own signs to protect their customers, that ages after your visit PCMUK finally installed decent signage, etc., etc?

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hi, I have appealed against a penalty fine for no tax,

there was a good valid reason why it was untaxed but of course they NEVER accept appeals,

it's just a buffer to make it look like they will listen,

absolute dogs they are..

 

 

My question is - is that it?

Do I have the right to appeal again to take it higfher up?

And how fast do I have to pay it,

can hardly afford the nearly £200 fine right now in one blow...

Can I suggest part payments?

 

Thanks.

What was your reason on appeal?

Vehicles can only be in 4 states

Taxed and insured

SORN

Exported

Scrapped

 

Not having the finances to tax is not a valid appeal.

 

If you cant afford the fine you can ask for an arrangement but it will be steep repayments, if they allow it.

Hi all..

 

I was selling the vehicle

- right after I bought it I decided to sell, so never sorn it or taxed it..

 

As I thought it would sell in a week,

it took 4 weeks,

they came and saw it was untaxed and not sorn,

I said it was because a sale fell through..

 

They sent a letter from an 'un-named officer' and unsigned (obviously just an automated print out) saying they have decided to decline the offer of appeal... Obviously.

Sorry to say you should of taxed it or sorned it.

You took the chance and it didn't pay off.

 

Thing is now the fine, can you ask for an arrangement to pay?
