Private Parking Ticket (Cloned)???

Recommended Posts

Interesting one this. Got a demand today from a Private parking company called Civil enforcement and being hounded by a debt agency called ZZPS. 


Now they say as the 28 days us up i now owe collection fees and has increased to £170

It was for some kind of shopping park called Carnegie drive retail park in Dunfermline KY12 7AU




I live in Northern Ireland and at work at the time of the alleged offence


No photographic evidence provided, just a demand. Of course will appeal and use poplar but any suggestions??

Dont answer it and do not appeal.  They can never enforce it in scotland. Ever.   They have completely different laws regarding it than in england.  CE are well known to ignore this and still try.

But doesn't POPLA cost the PPC money ?

Seems like a good opportunity to waste their time and funds.

No point in using POPLA it doesn't exist in Scotland, the PPC hopes people will bite if they threaten enough. If they were silly enough to try court, they will get a severe tolchocking as you could never have been where the alleged breach occurred. Ignore them unless thet send a LBA then use on of ericsbrother's style letter to tell them where to go.

Do CEL have an online portal where you can view the photographs? Sometimes it's an operator typo, sometimes it's an ANPR hiccup, sometimes it's a cloned car. If it's either of the first 2 I'd be ignoring, if it's the 3rd one I'd be informing the police (although still ignoring CEL), because if it later turned out to be used in a hit and run or something and I'd done nothing, I wouldn't want it on my conscience.

if you can follow the above then you could very well have a good claim against them for breach of the GDPR.

Ignore the rentathreat dca though, they have nothing to do with anything ever

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

      Do you have a mortage arears claim to make? Then post your story on the forum here

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
