Referred to debt collection

Recommended Posts

Hi there.

I received a ticket many months ago from Parking Eye.

 

I didn't address it straight away and it was eventually referred to a debt collection agency.

 

Based on advice from forums like this I have sent a letter to the debt collection agency denying the debt and asking it be referred back to Parking Eye.

I also launched an appeal on the Parking Eye web portal as the signage was unclear.

 

I included evidence and made the appeal as the keeper of the vehicle.

 

Today I got a one sentence message back from PE:

 

Please be advised your correspondence has been forwarded to Direct Collection Bailiffs and all further queries concerning the above Parking Charge should be directed to them.
 

Not really sure how to progress from here. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hello and welcome to CAG.

 

Could you post up what you said in your appeal please, so we know what we're dealing with?

First of all the sneaky gets are trying to scare you by using the word "bailiffs".  No bailiff is going to visit you - they can only get involved if you lose a court case and then refuse to do what the court orders.


We could do with some help from you.

When you say you received one a few months ago, exactly how long did you ignore them for?

 

Direct collection Bailiffs are DCBL, a legit bailiff outfit, so my guess is this has been ignored for ages, they went to court won by default, and now given it to DCBL to enforce.


Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

Didn't think of that BB.

 

OP - have you moved since this all started?  Have you ignored claim forms from a court?

I don't have the exact wording to hand but the appeal was based on signage only being clear from one direction when entering the parking facility along with photo evidence that this was the case. 

 

@Bazooka Boo Yes, it was ages (nearly a year). And it is DCBL... but the last letter I received mid-December states:  We will not recommend to our client the commencement of legal action against you.

 

Which suggests no action has yet been taken?

When you wrote, did you identify yourself as the driver?

Sorry - husband is SwanG and had a similar thing a while back. He recommended I use this forum. Signed in on his phone! My bad. 

 

Anyway... nope.

Ah, right, Thank you for the explanation.

 

I see your husband had a thread about Parking Eye a couple of years ago. Can you tell us what happened please, or better still maybe he could update the thread?

I'll ask him to do so. Long story short, if I remember, they filed to go to court and he ended up paying. He says this is the forum he used to win our small claims case against a car dealer, so thank you!!!
