Hope you are all well and keeping safe.
I am paying back a debt through a DMP to Link and I was in a situation to get a settlement fee for an amount which is a small 4 figure sum - i received the following by email
Unfortunately we are unable to accept the sum of �0.00 but we would be prepared to accept the sum of �8.98 in settlement of this account. On receipt of cleared funds we will close your account with no further monies owed and update your credit file as partially settled. Payment should be made to Sort Code 40-05-30 Account Number 54192761. Payment should reach our office by 17/04/2020.
If I pay them £8.98 have they no legal recourse to come after me for the rest considering its an offer in writing?
would appreciate some guidance please
Really worth reading this blog today, ignore the title the author is a Phd in Public Health and worked in that sector before he was a Eurosceptic, was a co-author with the late Christopher Booker on various subjects , over the last 2 weeks has forensically analysed the response to the pandemic and the planning to control it. They followed the plan for therwrong disease, they assumed it was a flu, its not its a SARS and needed a much different response well worth a read, source documents and links to relevant information is well provided.
Some insights into the mindset of the "Experts" and advisors in the blog Neil Ferguson he of the Computer Modelling, and doesn't fare well, he fell into the assumptions trap, with computer modelling, as in flawed data gives flawed results with no bearing on a real situation. the classic GIGO Garbage In Garbage Out.
So, Civil Enforcement Ltd.
I used their app to pay, it said I was all paid up - went about my day.
Came back in time and drove off.
They say I never paid at all.
I appealed via their website after the app store reviews said so many people had been done over by their app.
I screenshotted it, sent them the appeal and said I had paid, i sent them screenshots of the ' location history' too (the app doesnt show invoices just where youve been)
They blanket rejected it based on the fact they believed it was correct
I raised this with POPLA, they also reected my claim
I was there, I paid for the parking, the app didnt work or didnt take my payment despite saying it was all good!
Next lett is demanding £140 in 14 days
What next? - MP?
