PCM windscreen PCN - residential parking - Brentford Lock, Middlesex


Recommended Posts

Update: the lawyer friend sent a very good legal letter last week 

The third letter will be sent over the next few days - here is the proposed text - your comments welcome as ever:

Dear Will & John

Letter Reference:xxxx

I write with reference to your recent letter in relation to PCN numberxxxxx

You threaten Court proceeding on behalf of your client yet your client’s rationale for charging me has no legal substance. An alleged parking offence as a breach of an alleged contract.  I have no contract or terms and conditions with your client.   Furthermore, the sum you are requesting is fictitious. I have no intention of paying any monies to your client.

You had no legitimate reason to access my personal details so are already in breach of GDPR by texting me several times on my personal number which I have not given permission for you to use.  Coupled with the several letters you have sent your persistence amounts to nothing short of harassment. Should this continue I will have no hesitation in contacting the ICO to report the breach.

The letters I have received will be useful as tinder for the open fire in my living room now the weather has turned cold again.

Should you wish to take me to court, I will be seeking full costs through a recovery order under CPR 27:14 which will come in handy now I find myself in the unenviable position of redundancy as a result of Covid.

Yours Sincerely

 

Copied to PCM UK "you don't want to be Gladstoned"

 

Thanks AJJM

Yup, copies posted to both. Just sorry I failed to think of potentially the best line I could have used before posting - "as a urologist, I see a lot of balls but this really takes some beating"...

Good news, but do hang on to the paperwork.  The fleecers have six years to start court action, and some of them periodically dust down their old cases and send out more silly letters.

Well done in staggering the letters.

 

Well done in making them all different.  I bet Gladdys didn't appreciate getting a letter from a proper lawyer!

 

Regarding this draft, did they really text the person?  And if so, how did they get the number?

We could do with some help from you.

Yes they did text her! In advice from this forum she blocked the number - it was suggested on here that they must’ve got it from social media somehow.

The letters are all nicely different and with a gap between them.

 

Two tweaks.

 

I'd cut out the sentence that starts with "Coupled with the several letters ..."  Their client has a legal dispute with you so they're entitled to sent a letter, it isn't harassment.

 

Also at the bottom just put "COPIED TO PCM UK" without the Gladstoned bit.  You've already taken the wee wee out of them with that phrase, best not to include it this time and keep the letters different.

 

If there are no further suggestions from the regulars, as usual invest in two 2nd class stamps and two CoPs tomorrow, and tell Gladdys to take a running jump.

Yes the suggestions by FTMDave are  good, keeping them similar but subtley different is key, that way it keeps them on the hop.

An update,

just one of us has had a reply to our letters (see post #76 for text) and it deals solely with the issue of the data protection breach.

 

It seems they were rattled enough to defend the accusation that they breached GDPR regulations. I attach a copy of the letter - sorry that it's not very clear but it says they haven't breached the regulations as they are entitled to process personal data because of the legitimate interest in recovering the unpaid parking charge.

 

Not sure if they think using capital letters for Parking Charge (sic) makes it more official.

 

we know it doesn't warrant any action but am posting as we thought it was interesting that they wrote this letter.

So Gladdys are worried about you having a go at them about GDPR, bless them.

 

OK, yours (as in the three of you) is not the next move.

 

You've told them to do their worst.  It's up to PCM now if they have the gonads to do court or not.

 

Hopefully they'll have crawled back under their stone, but if they are so stupid as to do court they're on a hiding to nothing.
