    • Hello and thanks for taking the time out to review my problem.    I was at an ATM I use occasionally. Plugged in PIN and amount, the cash machine whirred opened and closed a few times then said ‘thanks for using’.    I contacted my bank immediately and they have started a dispute. This seems to be a common problem from what I gather reading about this now it’s happened to me.   It seems a bit odd that I have to wait so long to get my money back, if I get it back at all.   Surely they should be able to check the camera and see that there was obviously something wrong and no money dispensed?    is there anything I need to know so I don’t get shafted here by the ATM owner or by the bank dispute?
    • but they didn't remove them 'because' you agreed to pay or continue to pay + i bet they are over 6yrs old anyway and thats why they were removed.     who were 'they' you complained too..
    • they didn't Lloyds did upon or before sale,    anything that they can use to ID its YOU here on CAG, inc AC / ref no's and QR or Barcodes or little numbers down the edges. leave all figures dates etc etc .
    • Trouble is I cant do that though - I absolutely have to be able to get a mortgage at the end of this year and if theres a DMP or "arrange to pay" on it then I cant.   Understand the ones past the default + 6 years cant start reporting but I assume by your answers that the ones that dont have a default date can. This effectively means I will need to carry on paying those 4. I am thinking stop the DMP - make a personal arrangement with the 4 that arent defaulted. At least it will have more than halved the payment - unless there is a way of guaranteeing that they wont re-appear.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Good afternoon all

 

I hope you can assist me.

 

I received a PCN on the 26 of June for parking whilst parked outside my work place.

I do have a parking permit that was in the vehicle but unfortunately, it was upside down and I didn't check before exiting my vehicle.

 

I often have to find a site street when I'm at this location so didn't think to check that the permit was displayed properly, and unfortunately, got ticketed.

 

I do plan on appealing their £60 fine as I think it is grossly unreasonable but wanted to get some assistance from this group as I'm quite sure they will decline my request from talking to others at my workplace which this has happened to and also from reading your forum.. so please help ?

 

Is there a template appeal letter I should send?

 

What's your advice?

 

Thanks in advance

 

Chuck

2 Have you yet appealed to the parking company yet? [Y/N?] No

 

if you have then please post up whatever you sent and how you sent it and the date you sent it,

Did the NTK provide photographic evidence?

 

3 Did the NTK mention Schedule 4 of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 (PoFA) [Y/N?]

 

4 If you appealed after receiving the NTK,

did the parking company give you any information regarding the further appeals process?

[it is well known that parking companies will reject any appeal whatever the circumstances]

do not appeal.

 

await the NTK that must arrive 29-56 days time

 

get CLEAR photos and positioning of all signs local to area esp the small print

but an upside down permit is easily batted away.

Thanks DX.  I wont appeal as you've suggested but just want to ask..

will appealing it not show willingness to settle if this goes to court stage?

Though I'm almost sure it would have been rejected anyway..

 

I am due back on that site next week so will make sure I take plenty of pictures of the signs and location.

I could have kicked myself when I walked up to the car and saw the notice stuck to the glass with the permit on the opposite side upside down and wedged in the corner.

 

I checked their photos online and they actually took a picture of it with all the other rubbish that was in my windscreen

 

Thanks

Appealing it is the absolute worst thing you can do right now.  The parking companies know this, and know you dont.  SO they even offer a discount which conveniently expires just before they need to send the NTK, to further try and bluff you.

Sit tight and wait for that NTK which will come in a months time ( if it ever actually does).  The PPC cannot do a single thing without sending that NTK,  UNLESS you appeal.   Appeal, and you make their job easier.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

Is the vehicle registed to you or is it a lease vehicle?

if you own it then waiting for the NTK through the post is the best move

Now you did display a valid permit, it was just upside down but that doesnt earn them £100 to admit their wording of the ticket was insufficient.

We would therefore like to see an image of the signs in the car park and also tell us who owns the land. If it is your employer then they can tell the parking co to stop being silly and jog on but often it is an agent of the overall development that gets these bandits in place but then denies all responsibility when it all goes wrong

Hi All

 

Hope you are well.  I have received the NTK in the post and they now want the full £100. I am a contractor and was only on the site temporarily. The company I was there to visit only lease an office in the complex. Their advice was to ignore them because the parking company is a nuisance. I'm unable to upload more pics. I think I'm over the limit

Also never ignore. Is easily soeted2. But if you ignore theres a.good chsnce theyll think they can get a judgement by default if they go to court.

 we often tell peopel to ignore a certain letter or demand but that it not the same asignoring the whole thing.

 

Once we have seen the NTK we may be asking you to do things such as gather photographic evidence in case it is needed later.

 

If you do the things suggested in a timely manner you will be able to bet away their threats after they have wasted money on paying people to write to you.

 

It is often pointless engaging with them before the last letter before court as they believe that you love them really and want to pay them but by letting them waste their time and money you make it less economical to go that last step and they are only interested in money, not justice

Thanks DX

 

So how do I know when its the last letter before court?

Is that if/when the county claims form arrives or before it?

 

I thought it might be prudent to write them a firm letter stating that the permit was in the window but upside down and send photographic proof along with it so they can compare it to the pictures they took, but it will probably fall on deaf ears so I'll follow your lead on this

Hi everyone

 

Hope you are all well. I have recently received 2 letters from Debt Recovery Plus (DRP). The most stating that they will give me so much time and if i dont pay, they will pass the file back to their client with a recommendation to take court action.

Reading through a few other posts, I take it that I should also ignore this letter and wait to see if anything else comes of it from UKCPM?

 

thanks again for your time

Hi All

 

Hope you're well.

 have received a letter from Gladstone Solicitors

They have quoted the supreme court case- Beavis Vs Parking Eye ans says their client now has the option to commence proceedings in the appropriate civil court. The right exists for a period of 6 years, etc, etc, asking for payment in the next 14 days.

Do I still wait for further paperwork at this point or are there steps I should be taking?

 

Many thanks
