    • Thanks DX,    I will update if they outsource to another company or issue any of proceedings (unlikely I know)    cheers, 
    • go up on your UC log-in it should tell you if you are entitled to free prescriptions. if you are, then yes  and yes go get all your moneyback.    
    • I would expect revenue officers are quite aware of the time of day they are manning barriers. i'd also go as far as to say they don't bother to do this in off peak times... as there would be little point, no loss of revenue to protect.   they man the barriers at peak times, when people have purchased their permit to travel at a peak time travelled at a peak time arrived at their destination at a peak time.   thus they prevent: [loss of revenue] the traveller simply paying for an off peak fare when they just travelled in peak time [and most probably are a worker] getting an off peak return when they are travelling back home in peak time [worker returning home]     in other words ..fare dodgers.   your intended return was off-peak, but you didn't tell them.. we'll never know when your permit to travel was purchased nor if you travelled in peak time....but as from about post 5 i'll hedge my bets..   yes you are entitled as others may well be, to a refund because you were returning off peak but if you don't tell 'em…….   as for our experts , its either they are on holiday, which is none of our business or they sussed you out a longtime ago and don't want an argument here that they have 1000's of times in their regular work....   anyway  I've said all this from the start this thread is getting boring and repetitive.   dx ...    
    • @BankFodder and @BazzaS Thank you for your responses ~ I take on board all that you've said, and can only apologise again for all the narrative.   My nephew who's been [supposedly] dealing with this for over 6 months, unfortunately didn't have the experience and was consequently taken in by them and the way they 'operate', and he consequently let me down massively including through the Ombudsman this 2nd time: * 2nd Complaint with Ombudsman initially registered 11/04/2019 but, not registered properly until 15/04/2019 through their helpline (by this time my nephew, who was down as my rep for the Ombudsman, too, and the preferred contact, was away and out of the country until 07/05/2019, which was the day before the ombudsman's system had given for all evidence to be in). * Eventually after asking for and being granted 2 or 3 extensions all evidence had to be submitted by the 28/05/2019, though I was still able to keep adding evidence which would supposedly be taken into consideration (it wasn't...don't think any of it was, and it didn't take me long to work that one out!) via the messaging system. * On the BH Saturday (25/05/2019) during a phone session with my nephew in a last ditch attempt to try to get the evidence on the site, he ended-up really pushing my boundaries over this (I've finally had EMDR last year for all the trauma I've been through and that had finally kicked in)...I ended-up calling my nephew a patronizing [and might have used the F word!] prick and turning the phone off. Haven't spoken to him since, or the rest of my family, am only communicating with them through emails, texts and messenger on Facebook, and am intending to keep it that way until I'm god and ready. * The Ombudsman eventually issued his decision on 05/07/2019 (N.B. During this time he'd contacted me twice on the phone, thus bypassing my nephew's status as npower have been doing for years, including in the run-up to my lodging the latest complaint with the Ombudsman). * Npower appealed the decision on the 11/07 (the arrogance of that will strike you once I get the chance to upload the evidence I've been accumulating over the time my nephew has been 'dealing' with them and subsequently), I appealed the decision on the 18/07, which was the day before the final 14 days to appeal were up (N.B. During our 2nd converation, the Ombudsman had told me, whilst prefacing this with "I probably shouldn't be telling you this..." 🤪, that if I left it until the day before, I'd then have another 14 days whilst he considered the 'appeal' and then, even after that, I'd have recourse to appeal to his manager if I felt he'd got something wrong!!..........Yeh right! 🤬). * In the end he rejected both of our appeals and this is the basis of his response on the 01/08/2019, which he'd taken to be a relatively simple billing issue, along with my not having understood my bills and never having paid enough all along (NOPE!):- "Some of the bills are shown differently on the spreadsheets, but the information is the same. For example, on the first spreadsheet there is a bill of £3,032.40 on 4 October 2018. On the second spreadsheet there are three bills issued on 4 October 2018 for £677.33, £678.30, and £1,676.77. These three bills add up to £3,032.40. I appreciate that this can be confusing for customer’s, but this is something I did cover in my original decision. Whilst I acknowledge npower’s point that a manual bill will essentially contain the same information as the bills previously issued, it is the way in which the information is presented that is crucial to assisting the customer to understand their account better. After considering the appeals from you and npower, I can see no justifiable reason to change the decision, which I maintain is fair and reasonable for both parties, based on the evidence I have reviewed. I confirm that Ombudsman Services: Energy’s full and final decision is that npower should: • Issue a letter of apology. • Apply a credit of £120.00 to account 142309111 for the two failed appointments in 2015 in line with the terms of the Guaranteed Standards of Service. • Apply a goodwill gesture credit of £200.00 to account 142309111 in recognition of the shortfalls in service. • Provide the customer with a manual bill to show a clear breakdown of charges, payments, and credits on account 142309111 for the period from 19 February 2013 to 19 February 2019. We have now reached the end of our investigation process and there is no further opportunity to appeal. You now must decide if you agree to accept our decision in full and final settlement of the complaint."   * I haven't accepted it (why would I, when it's based on lies; npower breaching every SLC and Customer Obligation going with me; the GDPR and former DPA; fraudulently altering my data to fit in with their narrative; obfuscating, kicking-up a dust-storm, using bullying and harrasment every time they're challenged, all with the intention of trying to put the onus of responsibility for .managing. my account back onto me and save themselves coming under further scrutiny with Ofgem...though they're so far behind what has gone-on with this company over the years and/or they just don't want to unsettle their "Dear Stakeholders", especially with one of the Big 6; and all whilst I've been finally able to get the very damning evidence together against them?!). I'm about integrity and having a moral compass ~ everything this company isn't and lacks ~ and I will no longer compromise that for anything or anyone, particularly not this shower of 💩s in npower.   So yes @BazzaS I " a) want to take action" and furthermore, I believe I've got a very good case against them with your help.   Again thank you both for your support and I'll start on the bullet list over the week-end and also start uploading evidence (I've got rhemes of it on a USB stick, which I'm currently redacting the important ones of).   GM  
    • Hello.   I have received one of these penalty notices  for a prescription from several months ago.  I usually have a prepayment card but they're saying it may have expired, which it could have done.  Unfortunately, I can't find the card itself so I can't confirm.  I was going to pay the penalty on the grounds I may have carelessly let it expire but on the website for paying it says I may be entitled to free NHS prescriptions as I'm claiming Universal Credit.  I can't recall which elements but I suspect it's child tax credits and possibly something due to not high salary.   I'd never considered that I may be eligible but if this is true, then I may have been buying the prepayment card unnecessarily.  Which makes me wonder if I can avoid paying this fine because even though I ticked the box to say I have a prepayment card, which was technically not the case if it's expired, I may be eligible for free prescriptions.  Assuming I am, which I will try to determine next week for sure, do you think I can appeal the penalty based on the wrong box being ticked but ultimately it not be a fraudulent claim because I am entitled to them free anyway.   Does that make sense?  Your thoughts on the matter are all appreciated.

Backdoor UKCPS CCJ for 7 PCNs 4 years after I changed address

Recommended Posts

Ok I'll get everything together and let you know, but as this was 4 years ago and back then I did not realise how this can come back to you, I don't have any pictures from back then, the majority I had I ended up chucking thinking it was dealt with (naive I know, I was younger then ) 

 

No, it was only a notice of hearing of application so nothing to submit and no deadlines. Just a date and time for the hearing

already told you,

you take everything you can so you can go for a summary determination if possible.

 

If the parking co doesnt bother to send someone along to try and object to the set aside then you will be meeting in court again at some point in the future where you will have to provide all of the evidence to rebut their claim and that will include the sigange etc so you might as well spend a day going to wherever and getting it now.

 

You can then ask for the judge to make a determination if they have turned up as it wont be ambushing them and it will save the cost of another appearance and the risk that they decide they think they have a chance of winning if they tell a pack of lies that you have fialed to produce evidence to the contrary for.

 

So, you look at the Parking Pranksters blogspot and copy all of the reports there that are about residential parking and especially those where supremacy of contract was the key issue. 

 

You send these to the court NOW so they can be included as evidence.

Just refer to them as a whole in your Witness Statement that will include what you have already written and anything else that you have come across since.

 

With luck UKCPS may well throw in the towel, esp if you are going after them for ful costs if they dont agree to drop the matter

Hey guys, so I received a letter today, dated yesterday (16/04/2019) with a statement of claim for the costs of sending someone to the set aside. 

 

Is this something they can do? Is it based on whether I lose that I have to pay it? I'm not sure about it. But it look like they have the intention of sending someone to attend the set aside hearing.

They're trying to scare you into not setting aside the claim.

The ONLY costs involved are the court fees.

Hi guys, 

 

I'm in the process of getting my evidence in order atm, I'm just wondering as I am self employed and I am supposed to work a night shift the night before the hearing, I plan on taking the shift off, is this something I can add to the draft order on the day, for ukpc to reimburse me for the loss of wages due to having to appear in court? 

 

Any advice regarding this is extremely helpful thanks :)

Yes Michael you can claim loss of earnings up to £90 per day ...you may be required to produce evidence you have had to take time off unpaid and of course its only awarded if your application is successful and the amount awarded is at the discretion of the court.

Up to £90? Now what action could I take if that's not enough? As I work 12hr shifts at a high rate due to the industry I work in. I earn £346 in a shift so that seems like a lot of money to lose

Already said ad nauseam,

the judge has to allow the set aside as long as you stand a chance (not even 50/50) of actually defending the claims in the rehearing so them asking for costs is just a way of trying to put you off as they will not be successful. You wont get yours either at this stage but if they do send a rep then you HAVE to have some evidence that your defence will be successful

 

I dont care how far away the place is to where you live now you go there and you take pictures and you take a copy of the lease of the flat to show you have superiority of contract. them serving the papers on an address they know you dont live at will get you  a long way but you still need EVIDENCE. Treat it as though you are being paid £700 per hour as that is what you stand to gain by beating this.

 

Now stop moaning about what you can lose,  you take a days holiday and ask for the costs at the full hearing if it gets that far.

that is what the parking co is trying to avoid as they know they will get hammered for all of the costs there.

 

You need to show your losses though and that they have failed to try and avoid these costs.

By making stupid claims for their costs they have given you half of what you need already

 

This part is at your request so unless you can show beyond any doubt that they have been totally unreasonable and they knew they had no chance of success you take the costs issue to round 2.

 

You do however have all of your costs laid out on paper and sent in to the court  and copied to them at least 7 days before the hearing so it can be considered if the parking co decide to drop their hands.

@ericsbrother I am 100% going to take pictures today, I already have pictures off the outside, but I am going to get them inside the parking area today! I also have the lease downloaded which I am going to print today as well. 

 

I have been on pranksters blogspot and found similar cases which I will note down and refer to. I also found a damming article where ukpc was found to be issuing doctored pcn's around the same time as my charges were issued! So I am going to use that as to why I think they had not sent me evidence of the "breaches" when I requested them. 

 

There is also this I found on moneysavingsexpert  https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5965305 which is very very! Similar to my case so I was going to use sooner points from that as well to bring up. 

 

Let me know what you think :)

you dont note down and refer to,

you take copies of everything you can and you send it to the court ( and the parking co) ideally 14 days before the hearing but at least 7 days.

 

You cant refer to anything you haven't submitted as evidence so take screen shots or whatever and print them off.

Then you can use them.

 

That is why i say you chuck the kitchen sink at it this time and you might not need another hearing.

If the lease says the parking spot is contained then you go for a summary trial and shove this point right up their solicitors nose. 

if I turned up at a knifefight with a gun I certainly wouldnt sit there waiting to get stabbed before I opended fire

Well my court date is the 24th, which gives me 5 days and it's Easter weekend, so when I send it now will I be able to use it?? 

 

I have just looked through my lease agreement and there is nothing! About parking. Not a single thing. So can I use that?

why are you asking instead of pulling your finger out and doing things? email, fax etc they all get there.

 

you had had warnings and time to get this done but you have sat back and done nothing until it all becomes critical. Yiou had better have a  judge that cuts you some slack and appreciates that you actually have evidence to show you could have beaten this years ago but the way you are going the judge may think that you are not bothered so start looking up the court fax number andat least show that you have something even if it cant be used on the 24th.

 

If ScS pitch up you can be damed sure they will go for the kill as you havent filed in time but the judge should know that you do have something.

 

fax it to SCS as well so they lose soem of the wind in their sails

Hey guys,

I just had the hearing for the set aside.

 

Now, I went in with absolutely everything and everything I was going to say in order (so I wouldnt be umming and confused to what I was trying to say).

 

However, I had no chance to really talk since UKPC's representative from SCS law was given instruction by UKPC to consent to the set aside (though they are going to claim costs).

 

Every time I spoke to make one of my points or show pictures or evidence, the judge just said it will be dealt at a later date, he was not interested in anything I had to say since the consent for the set aside was there.

 

now, it will be going to trial and I have to send in my defence by 24 May.

 

I got the set aside, now I just need to put a defence  and wait for a questionnaire and further instruction.

They must have realised they messed up as they consented,

you now look closely at advice on your thread from ericsbrother and others regarding the evidence you need to blow them away at a later hearing to kill off their claim. 

 

They will have messed up somewhere, their inclusion of the two tickets you say were paid. 

In any case there is an issue of Supremacy of Contract, and their contention of not clearly displaying due to a smidgen of corner notvwisible is a trifle and of no consequence that might be part of your case as it is churlish where the  actual printed details on the Permit of itself is clearly visible . 

 

there is much you can  put forward but you will have to research around the pointers you have been given.

they have done this to avoid a summary trial and to reserve their right to claim costs if they win next time.

If you had got your stuff posted in a week earlier you could have gone for that yesterday and they would have lost there and then because they were represented but had no paperwork in front of the judge in the requisite time.

Now the same applies to you as well so they stand to lose quite a tidy sum as you will have 2 lots of lost earnings and travel etc.

 

make sure that you get it all listed and this time you make sure your paperwork is sent in by the time stated on the hearing allocation letter but if that doesn't arrive you get it to court by the 10th may (copy to parking co) and them complain like hell if they fail to submit in time.

 

We will help you with the wording of that as well if it comes to it but you wont know untill the 11th may

I tried like hell to get my point across but the judge genuinely had his mind set as soon as their representative said they agree to the set aside. But no changing that now

 

so right,  I have all the information I did before as I sent in a previous post which showed the witness statement, defence etc,

do I need to rewrite everything into one single defence now that it is going to small claims court as a trial?

 

As well, should I ask for ukpc's evidence from scs law to see what they are going to use as their evidence?

You were too late to get you point across, he cant listen to anything produced on the day as you ahve to have it sent in beforehand in the prescribed time as already explained.

 

no point in asking SCS for anything, they will have to produce it or they will get nowhere.

they will also have to pay a listing fee for the claims as they didnt need to last time and this might just stop them in their tracks despite all of their noise. If they fail to send you their evidence then they will be stuffed by procedure regulation.

 

Do you need to write it all up as one now?

of course you do and you need to get it into court by the 10th may, copy to SCS law.

 

If they fail to get theirs to you by 4pm on the same date them you whack in a complaint to court and ask that all of their submissions sent after that cut-off are thrown out as inadmissible.

 

this is why we say no email, they often submit their stuff by email after the TIME and claim that you got it and no harm done,

sorry about that etc when all they were doing is waiting for yours so they could copy your homework.

Unfortunately the judge wouldn't listen to even what I had! I was trying to explain about the 2 tickets which they themselves cancelled which I had sent in as evidence and he cut me off mid sentence! I was really taken aback by that and it felt like I wasn't even a part of what was going on the whole time (this was my first time in any court and I thought I'd at least get to talk haha). 

 

Right ok, I will get some copying and pasting and organise everything I have and order it logically and evidence everything in said order and I'll copy it and paste on here for improvements.

 

As for the cases that I printed off about ukpc losing residential cases, where/when in my defense do I reference them? So I know where I can add them into the lot too. 

 

Thanks a lot

you keep repeating yourself but dont appear to have let what I said sink in.

 

the judge COULDNT listen to you because you hadn't submitted the evidence in writing to the court in the correct time so you had nothing to say because you had no evidence!

 

luckily SCS werent bright enough to file and go after you on the day which indicates that the evidence may well be lacking.

 

now what exactly was the order of the court

- they usually give a date for a hearing and order the production and exchange of evidence 14 days before that hearing.

 

If you were told to exchange by the 24th then it may be you are on a waiting list and that you may get as little as 7 days notice.

I have had a hearing with 3 days notice and that got cancelled as the judge was away.

 

It also means that only a short time has been allocated for the hearing, probably half an hour.

 

make sure that all of your stuff can be got through in that time or you might be sitting outside after a short adjournment whilst other court business is done and them have to go back in again.

 

the lawyer for the parking co will be nice to try and get you to say something damaging to your case so beware of idle chat.
