    • A mobile phone mine while I was out watching the football with all the lads.
    • Hi,   Stumbled upon this website and I see the general advice is ignore CRS and that they can't do anything but thought I'd make my own post as I'm still anxious and don't want debt collectors to turn up at my parents home.   Facts: - Joined Xercise4less in June, 2017. I paid £11.99/m - Finished uni in July 2019, so I wanted to cancel membership as I was moving back home and the closest X4less gym would be 50miles away.  - I initially put in a freeze request (thinking it's to cancel). When I told my friend he said I need to fill in a different form to cancel the contract. - I was confused so I confirmed this with someone working at the gym. They explained even though my 12m contract has finished, in order to cancel the contract I would have to give 30 days notice using a form online and cancel my DD. - So I completed this online form that same week and canceled my DD a few days later.   * Fast-forward to 20th January 2020 *   - Received a letter (to my parents address) from CSR yesterday (20th). Asking me to pay £213.47 including their fee of £102.50. - I was at work when my parents send a pic of letter. Return address said HGC - a quick google search shows them as Hutchison Global Communications aka Three.  - What did I do next?  Since I didn't have the letter in front of me I asked my parents for the number & reference on the letter. - Then stupidly called CRS thinking its Three and it's regarding my recently cancelled phone contract.   What I told CRS on the phone: - When I found out it was about my cancelled gym contract I explained in detail several times how I correctly cancelled my contract back in July 2019 and I will not be paying the outstanding amount. I didn't even use the gym. I did say I may be open to paying the monthly fee. - Advisor said Harland got my freeze request but nothing else, no proof = you must pay or they will continue to purse me. He also said outstanding amount is not negotiable and me not using the gym is irrelevant. - I asked for Harlands contact details, CRS refused to give it to me because Harlands will not discuss this matter with me.   After 15mins of going around in circles, me explaining what happened and advisor saying I must pay, I finally I said I am not in the wrong here. I filled the form correctly, and it said 'submitted. If their system didn't receive my request it is not my fault and I cannot be held accountable for an error on their part. So I don't agree with the charges and will not pay it and ended the call.   Other info: - CRS said the charge of £213.47 is for membership from October 2019 - Dec 2019 + late fees + CRS fees. - Told the advisor I no longer live at the address they sent the letter to. He asked for new address and I refused to give this out, so they will add an additional £36ish for tracing my new address. - Apparently they sent several letter to my old address but I know they didn't because I still have friends living at that address who would have told me if anything addressed to me came through. - I believe the system didn't acknowledge my cancellation request since a freeze request was in place but that doesn't mean I owe them any money and definitely not £213.47.       Thanks in advance!      
    • Here are the above letters vanquis.compressed.pdf
    • This got me thinking. There are only 4 parking bays on the site. They charge 50p for 1 hour, £1.00 for 2 hours, £1.50 for  3 hours and £2.00 for 24 hours. Yes, £2 for 24 hours! How is this site profitable? Do parking companies run these types of sites with a business model that is focussed more on issuing PCNs that intimidate motorists who lack knowledge of the law into paying up?

Hi, this is my first time posting so i do apologise if I haven't done this correctly.

 

I recently received a parking ticket via post but here comes the problem, this letter is a final reminder letter.

 

I haven't received any other letter apart from this one and the date of the letter is from September so i'm not exactly sure how to proceed.

 

Surely I am suppose to be given an initial letter with the normal spiel about the claim and 'discounted rate'.

 

I know you aren't suppose to contact them but in this occasion i feel like I wouldn't be at any fault?

I did try checking on their payment page by inputting my reference number and reg but it says unable to proceed as it is with our debt collecting agency.

 

This is the first I've heard as I haven't received any letters from a debt collecting agency.

 

Any kind of help would be much appreciated as I don't know what to do.

 

Thank you :)

Please don't contact the PPC yet in case you give them information that helps them against you. Give us the information dx has asked for and we'll advise.

I have no idea as this is the only letter that has been issued. 

I was also curious with the 4.30 am time too

 

I think it might have been the 14th July as we stayed in the Travelodge hotel which is situated next to the car park.

 

Bit of background info,

 

the Travelodge staff said we could park there to unload and check into the hotel but this took a little longer than usual as there were a couple ahead of us to check in.

 

I have contacted the Travelodge but they aren't claiming any kind of responsibility so I'm not exactly sure what to do as I don't want this to get to the bailiff stage or even to court.

Well from what i have read online, they usually send it to a debt collecting agency. 

Also is there any advice you can provide me with given my situation?

They do sometimes pass the 'debt' to DCAs who have no power to take you to court. For bailiffs to be involved, you'd have to go to court, lose and then refuse to pay. I don't remember it happening to anyone here.

 

People should be along later to comment on the information you've given us about your parking event.

So it appears that the event has in july but the first letter sent in sept? they are too late to create any keeper liability so best thing to do is say nothing, do not contact them in any way.

Let them waste their money chasing you. the latest letter is a threatogram sent out by peopel who get paid to send them and have nothing to do with anything so ignore them completly.

Read up on the cowboy practices of parking co's whilst you wait for the next instalment.

If you live near to the place get some pictures of the entrance to the land, the signs there, any signs inside the car park. and note any other antry/exit points and whether there are cameras
