    • if you wish to put up everything like    your defence claimants WS defendants WS   then im sure those here now and future victims will find it of value   if you read upload carefully you'll see its best to upload each as a separate multipage PDF but ofcourse you'll have to redact each page as a jpg picture 1st before merging each to the relevant multipage pdf .   dx  
    • Thanks I’m happy to put something back ! I didn’t have the courage of my convictions to counter claim even though I was really quite proud of the thoroughness of my court bundle ! i really wanted the opportunity to get into the detail with the judge and felt quite cheated when it ended, but of course I realised that they had just moved on to their next victim  will watch this space 👍  
    • I have created your own topic for this as its import to have it own one but placed a link on the thread you posted on.   you should never counterclaim that exposes you to further cost and rarely succeeds esp if they disc' the claim always best to state in a sep letter you will be seeking costs esp loss of days wages at £90 which most judges allow.   as for an sar, its p'haps always better to issue a cpr 31:14 too or in replacement of, an sar.   well done on your important win
    • My wife has directed me to post on this thread as I have just successfully won against these charlatans   My hearing date was all set at my local court for 31st October 2019 all defence papers were filed and served and frankly I was really looking forward to it! This morning I received a letter from BW legal stating in a one line response that I was to take this letter as a notice of discontinuance whereby the claimant KBT (armtrac) discontinues all of the claim. I am beyond disappointed that I didn’t get my chance to see these idiots across a desk! And that’s it I don’t appear to be able to take this further? I now realise I should of had the courage of my convictions and faith in the advice of others to issue a counterclaim! What I have now in my possession is a file of information which would be Gold-dust to the next person in my position! I feel like I would be able to get some sort of closure if I could pass some of this wisdom on but there are many posters here already and every case is different in its own way The key points in my defence were as follows and useful to anyone ‘caught’ at Sandy Acres. Keep the original parking ticket you purchased and send a copy to KBT with a covering letter ASAP do not identify the driver at any stage of the process!!!!  The blue sign uses the word penalty which is contrary to the IPC codes of practice  The red and white sign has a café open sign in front of it  which obscures it from the drivers view both available to download via Google maps Check the date you receive NTK mine was 71 days Do an SAR and you will get back the pictures of the alleged offence in my case they were of such poor quality you could not tell which way up the ticket was in the photo and in no image they held was there a picture showing the ticket and the vehicle numberplate. They offered no other evidence. Pretty soon you will see the money is being sought escalate until they no longer match the figure on the NTK even if it is sent within 56 days When you see a breakdown of costs for the money being sought it will ultimately include legal costs, typically £60 that the solicitor knows cannot be recovered in Small Claims Court. Personally I am now considering reporting BW legal to the law society or solicitors ombudsman for being party to a process which is fundamentally dishonest, an abuse of process, and a complete waste of court resources?   i am happy to help anyone who needs assistance but rest assured that their case against you relies on you caving in and paying, they have no plan B but will try and make you doubt your ability to defend yourself.   Dont worry about small claims Court, it isn’t crown court, just an office with 3 desks and certainly less stressful than a job interview or meeting with the bank and less at stake.   I got to one week from my court date and they gave up!

Firstly I want to mention I am ashamed of what I did.

 

I was using a 16+ oyster and got caught by a ticket inspector.

It had my name, and photo, however, the inspector began quizzing me about my D.O.B. of course, I stuttered because I was panicking.

I got it from a friend of a friend, someone I never met.

I was stupid for doing it I know.

And no excuse will absolve me of my wrongdoing.

 

I was told I would receive a letter from TFL. I am so afraid I will get a criminal record.

This is my first time doing something so silly.

 

I saw a similar post about this from November however I don't know what action was eventually taken against the person.

I am really worried, and I am afraid it will affect my career and academic prospects if I receive a criminal record.

 

I am still yet to receive the letter from TFL.

I want some guidance on how to respond.

And whether anyone has been in a similar situation and what the outcome was.

 

Will I have to show up to court?

And if I do will I receive a conviction?

I will have to plead guilty, and I plan to.

Also, will how long I've used the oyster card affect whether or not I will receive a criminal conviction?

 

What should I include in my response to them?

Is there anything I should avoid writing.

 

I would be so grateful for any guidance and advice.

 

After some browsing on other forums, it is likely I will have to pay a fine.

What else can I expect to happen?

Should I ask for an out of court settlement?

Then why didnt you get a legit one? I know its tempting to get a fake one on snapchat etc, but is it really worth risking a criminal record that stays with you for life, all over a silly oyster travel card?

So you're saying I will get a criminal record? I seem to not be getting any help on this forum, or advice on how to write back to TFL. :-(

Nope. Have a read of the forum. There are plenty of threads that advise on letters to avoid prosecution. This is a self help forum too.

I have since received a letter to appear in court. I wanted to know how to proceed? 

 

I have read through similar threads. Many of them have no update. they have calculated all uses of the card. Of course ,I understand that is an aggravating factor which could make an OCC unlikely in my case. 

 

What can I do
