reply to honeybee13, Are the service area operators a private parking company?
NO, THE SERVICE AREA IS OWNED BY A PETROL SALES COMPANY, SHELL, BUT THEY USE/OR DID USE A PRIVATE COMPANY TO MONITOR THEIR SERVICE AREA, A COMPANY WHO FIT A CAMERA TO MONITOR WHO USES THE AREA, THERE WAS A NOTICE STATING PARKING WAS ONLY ALLOWED TO CUSTOMERS OF THE SERVICE AREA, BUT WHERE THAT NOTICE WAS IS NOT CLEAR AS I DID NOT SEE IT, I DID READ ONLINE THAT THE COMPANY WHO MONITORED THE CAMERAS AND ISSUED THE FINES HAD GONE IN TO ADMINISTRATION, BUT I'M NOT 100% SURE ABOUT THAT, WHEN I RECEIVED NOTICE OF THE PARKING FINE IN 2016. I RANG THEM UP EXPLAINING THAT THE POLICE TOLD ME TO PARK THERE AND I LEFT BEFORE IT WAS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, AND THEY SAID UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES I DID NOT HAVE TO PAY THE FINE, THEN FOUR YEARS LATER dcbl SAY THEY WANT £180 IN FINES AND COSTS, I FEEL THAT HEY ARE BEING UNREASONABLE TO SAY THE LEAST. . .
I believe I have access to all of the statements on the Barclaycard website, I don't have anything on paper unfortunately.
The letter sent by Hoist shows a default of 8124, the total limit on the card was 8000 so it seems not too much has been put on top of the debt.
For my part I don't dispute the debt at all, completely my fault for this situation.

What makes you think Ladbrokes would be susceptible to a bit of naming and shaming on social media? They have to be capable of being shamed or have some sort of social conscience for this to work. They don't give a sh1t about adverse publicity. Do you not listen or watch news items about the gambling industry?
Do you really think they've won an award for helping a charity? They're Ladbrokes. Their whole business model is significantly based on exploiting vulnerable people and those with some sort of gambling problem. Criticism on Facebook won't affect their profits.
EDIT: Also the OP might well be reluctant to advertise this on Facebook. His circumstances might not garner a lot of sympathy from some people.
