Thanks again dx100uk - very helpful advice.
I wonder how on earth these people get what seem to be legitimate speeding / parking etc., offence details then? Do they just buy the lists to try it on I wonder?
The other thing is that whatever the amount you ask for initially, they may well offer less. so better to start at £500 than a lesser figure. You may decide to accept or haggle their offer up since any offer would mean they know they are in the wrong.
To answer your question, parts of GDPR breaches are illegal and others are unlawful. Under S170 it is illegal to knowingly or recklessly obtain, retain, disclose or procure the disclosure of personal data without consent, or to sell or offer to sell personal data which has been unlawfully obtained, retained, disclosed or procured.
Did they just make a mistake with your ticket or were they reckless? I doubt they would want the Court to have that decided since they will know of other instances when they have pursued some one else who had also paid. i'd go for reckless..........
PS I wouldn't waste your time with the DVLA these quasi government departments tend to be very slippery and hard to pin down.
Just got home to letter from BW Legal

I have been reading letter as kept everything, had letter from PRAC on 13/02/2017 saying they have purchased the debt from Payday UK. They sent annual statement saying the original agreement date 9/12/2016 wrong date as the loan was date 1/10/2013.
Had email from Payday UK on 1/12/2014 saying we can pay via paypoint same account number as court papers, so confirms PRAC have enter the wrong date on the paperwork.
Just need to put into a defence case
