SMETS 1 use a mobile network
SMETS 2 use a Government network, which where not suppose to know about 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
As posted early on, if you have a smart meter installed make sure its SMETS 2
So it looks like a long trip to court is going to happen, I'm going to write out my defence, I've taken some legal advice and they said to ensure it is short and simple, with any evidence easily referenced and found for the judge.
So the basis of my defence is going to be:
Trespass and who can take me to court over it as per the comment above
lack of visible signage and confusing signage about what part of the car park is owned by who, especially as it was at midnight
Time taken to contact me after the offence was too long
Grace period not given of 10 minutes
Previous court cases of the same firm losing because of similar reasons
As the court location cannot be changed and I need to make a long travel to get there, plus all of the time wasted putting my defence together, if I am lucky enough to win, can I claim costs for the inconvenience? for example like this case: https://www.theguardian.com/money/2017/aug/26/parking-eye-takes-on-top-barrister-85-fine
I intend going back and getting photos DX, simply because I can't believe that I never saw ANY signs and even missed the machine to pay at. Like I said I've frequented this place many times in the past few years so I think I would have noticed something different, unless I'm going senile
The times on the letter are a bit strange, the entry time was dead on x hr and xx mins but no seconds, whereas the exit was x hr, xx mins and xx seconds.
I don't really want to go through the appeals process online, confirming all my details in the hope they will show the photos, just the cynic in me coming out
Hi and thanks for the info. Update: today received the SAR info - great you might think.
Just a waste of paper: screen prints, NO bills, NO data sheets from the meters, just copy letters of my complaints and their "we need more time" letters. But wait, there is a disc.
For disc you have to install Nero Secure Disk Viewer - use the password sent in separate letter - only to find recordings of misc phone calls by me over last couple of years. Doesn't give any information to me whatsoever regarding this alleged debt. Hopeless. Why it took so long to produce a package of worthless information I don't know.
Observations I did make was a sudden change from being Miss to Mrs on the screen prints, (not applicable) and something in the "contact owner" heading/column, which may be a salesperson as I am not Hannah Leach, and I did not request a Hitachi product financed through BM financial in 2010.
