    • I have been living with my partner since 2013. But after the birth of our son in 2014 things became unstuck. We were living together but I was making plans to move out, even viewed properties etc and therefore began claiming CTC and WTC to ensure that I could afford to go it alone. Eventually we worked it out but it has been on and off for years. In addition to this, I was in a lot of debt, had lost my job and knew that (selfishly) I needed the tax credits to keep my head above water.  My partner has no idea that I was claiming and if he finds this out he will leave me for sure. The house, the bills, everything is in his name. I work but I dont make enough money to contribute to the house as well as pay all my existing debts (my partner doesn’t know about half of these either). I  once had a bailiff call at the house and I had to tell him about it. He was so angry and mortified (as was I) and I just feel like I am bringing so much shame onto our family. I have been living this lie for 6 years and I couldn’t find a way out of it. I know I have made a huge mistake. I just want to pay it back and try to move on from it. I’m worried that I will have to go to court, prison, or they will want to speak to my partner about it. I really don’t want him to know about this because it’s so shameful. From my estimations it could be between 28-30K. I have absolutely no idea how I will pay it back, as we wouldn’t be able to claim any further credits as a joint claim because he earns too much money.  I haven’t eaten or slept in days. I feel physically sick and I just can’t cope with the guilt and humiliation. I did make false claims and now I’m worried I will pay the ultimate price and lose everything I have.    
    • Hi All,   Hoping for a little help and advice please.   This company Link Financial are chasing me for a debt that I had as a credit card with Royal Bank of Scotland. Out of the blue and having no correspondence from RBS a few year back this company claimed I now owed them the sum of money. I have written in response stating I do not acknowledge any debt to Link financial and asked them to supply evidence of liability. I also requested a true copy of the alleged agreement, a full statement of account, a signed true copy of assignment and any other documents referred to in the agreement. I also enclosed  a £1 payment for the credit agreement request and clearly stated that this £1 payment under no circumstances should be set aside for any alleged debt and if the documentation can't be supplied the fee should be returned.   Link's response was just a small statement of account with credit agreement number, account number (same as the RBS number), date of agreement and transaction sheet where they had taken the £1 fee off the debt value after I asked them not to. There was no true copy of assignment, true copy of alleged agreement or evidence of liability.   For reference, In 2009 my debts started to mount after my wife I had lost a child and we weren't at work for months, so ended up paying the mortgage on a credit card. Eventually it got too much and the RBS took me to county court in 2011 where I received a CCJ and then RBS was granted a charging order on my property which is in my name only. I was ordered to pay a monthly fee.    I received my first letter from Link in 2016 just stating, we have not written to you in some time as we have had to locate your address. We would like to discuss your intentions regarding the outstanding balance on  your account. I had no correspondence from RBS about this so I thought this was a scam company.  Unbeknown to me I also realised the monthly payment to the RBS had stopped being taken directly from my account.   After a few letters backwards and forwards about me disputing Link and this debt today 26th February 2021 I have now received another letter from Link stating. As you are aware a charging order on the beneficial interest you have in the property at.........has been secured. They are now seeking payment and will accept monthly payments on the account in accordance with my current financial situation. If I chose not to settle in full or fail to complete and return the form below or contact them within 7 days they will take further legal recovery action. There is a little boxed section at the bottom monthly or weekly payments for me to fill in and send off.   I'm really at my wits end now of what to do next. I have two years left on my mortgage and finding it really hard to get through that two year financially, especially since this pandemic has really hit home money wise. The last thing I need is the family home to be taken away especially with a 10 year old in the home.    I really appreciate any help and guidance. Thank you.

    • i thought that was the point of mediation, to show them that you think they havent got a case to go to court with? I realise you know far more about this type of thing than i do though, but i thought that not fulfilling the CCA properly - ie by not supplying t&c - was an automatic fail at court for them.   I dont know what to do now -   @Andyorchcan i have your thoughts too please   the hassle just makes you feel like giving in to them

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

CEL ANPR PCN - Morrisons, Butterfly Walk Car Park Denmark Hill Camberwell, London SE5 8RW - paid-did not enter Reg No - POPLA rejected appeal


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Wish I had found this place sooner as have obviously stuck my foot in it proceeding with appeals, hoping I might be able to get some advice anyhow.

 

I received a parking ticket for the car park outside of Morrisons in Camberwell, London, as I didn't think parking was that technical, I ignored the signage, proceeded into Morrisons, got change, came back out, put £2 in the machine and thought nothing of it. I then spent £10 in store to redeem my parking charge and went about life thinking nothing more about it.

 

I then received a £100 as it turns out you need to input your registration number, I obviously didn't keep my parking ticket so evidently I'm shafted.

 

I appealed via the CE website, stating the above, which was rejected, and then again to POPLA which has again been rejected (this time showing my bank statement with an £8 charge at Morrisons).

 

Citezens advice say I could go to small claims over the ticket, but with a lack of evidence and no response from Morrisons I'm a bit buggered.

 

Does any one have any advice on how I should proceed, or should I pay the £100 and never frequent a car park of this nature again?

 

Just very crappy timing to have had to Pay £102 to go to sodding Morrisons.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

DM

Where have you got the idea any debt can have bailiff s involved before you've lost in court????lll   you paid, just because their stupid system shows an extra mystery payment and your reg n

Perfect, so basically make a lovely file of future origami fodder until or if a Letter Before Claim arrives.   At which point it's time to get my legal ducks in a row.

And this is exactly why you never appeal, they have pointed out that they are now pursuing you as the driver, not the keeper.   Assessor supporting rational for decision The appellant

I've changed the thread title as it's not a fine, and it's important to know the difference when taking on these fleecers.

 

You have a great chance of seeing off CEL.

 

So you haven't kept the parking ticket.  What about a receipt from Morrisons, is there anywhere where £10 - £2 parking charge paid = £8 is shown?

 

In supermarket cases we generally advise to get on to the supermarket head office, show you were a genuine customer and demand they cancel the fleecers' invoice.

We could do with some help from you.

Thanks for correctly labelling my post, apologies, first time on the site.

 

Alas no, I have no documentation stating I purchased a ticket, my only hope would be getting the CCTV from Morrisons. I could follow up to see if they could confirm my purchase? Bank statement shows nothing except "£8 at a Morrisons"

 

Unfortunately the only response I got back from Morrisons, was a 'sorry it's nothing to do with us email'. Which was charming.

Welcome to the Forum.

Don't be too despondent, there is more than one way to skin a cat and these parking companies usually make more mistakes than motorists which is bad news for them.

 

You paid so they would have had your money in the machine without a corresponding registration number at the end of the day. 

Even if you didn't enter the reg. number, they still have to comply with several Laws and Regulations before they manage to form a contract with motorists.

 

As they are more concerned with ripping off motorists than complying with Laws, they are usually pretty easily beaten.

 

To help us come up with all the reasons why they shouldn't get a penny from you could you please complete the questions below.

 

Could you please post up the PCN you received.

I don't expect you will have the next one which is the Notice to Keeper as your appeal would probably have shown that you were the driver, but if you have, please post that up also.

 

Photographs of the signs are really a must, especially the one at the entrance and the blurb on the ticket machine

 as well as signage around the car park -ones that have different rules than the entrance ones are great.

 

Also these parking crooks rarely bother to get permission from the Council to erect their signs and cameras'

This means that the signs should not be there and so cannot offer a contract with the motorist.

 

Most Councils have a website for their planning department which often just require the postcode to be inserted in the search area.

Do not be surprised if nothing relevant appears.

Sorry-I should have reminded you to delete all your private details.

Wow you do move fast on getting things done. 

 

It seems like there must be a fault with the machine that allows you to pay without your registration number.

 

Thanks for the photos-they are a big help.

 

First is the sign at the entrance has no rules on it which means that the rules in the car park do not have to be observed as the entrance sign is an invitation to treat not offering you a contract.

The rules are too small to be enforceable on some of their notices at least.

 

Lastly but the most important is that the signs are from ABC parking Solutions, but it is CEL who appear to be asking for money. They cannot do that-it is ABC's signage.

 

Write to DVLA and ask who sent for your information.

If it was CEL, the DVLA have breached your GDPR and tell them that and ask for an explanation as this is not the first time they have been caught out by CEL. 

 

I have not found ABC on either BPA or IPC member lists....

 

Do not let CEL know as if they take you to Court in their name they lose. 

 

I am surprised that Morrisons are not cancelling the ticket anyway. You paid.

You complained quickly.

I guess you would have had to show your ticket to them to get the reduction?

I would have thought that Morrisons would have accepted that as you paid £2 less that you must have had a ticket regardless of the reg. number being missing.

In the Stikkies at the top of the Private Motoring section is a template that you can use for the DVLA though you may have to improvise when it comes to the breach of GDPR.

Thanks for help all,

 

Morrisons again came back and said, 'it's a private car park, so nothing to do with us.' I've emailed back asking about proof of purchase or CCTV data, but with no response yet.

 

Also messaged the DVLA on data requests. As mentioned on the demonstration letter, it says the .gsi email address isn't active any more I've instead gone directly to @ dvla.gov.uk and received an automated response that it had been received, so will let you know what they say.

 

All the best

Yeah, this is what I sent through to the second appeal, alas to no resolution.

 

Hoping on Morrisons actually helping out, otherwise the data request from the DVLA is sort of my last option.

Stop falling for their rubbish...

the issue here is you appealed

never appeal.

 

removes your protection under pofa as you ID'd the driver..

then they are like a dog with a bone.

 

simply ignore them now until/unless they send a letter of claim.

The DVLA is nowhere near your last option.

 

First of all you paid, so you owe them nothing.

Also to charge you £100+ for not entering your reg number is of secondary importance and so the charge would be considered a penalty.

 

Also their entrance signs are not enough to offer motorists a contract.

Equally their T&Cs are too small.

Did you manage to check that they had planning permission for their signage and cameras? 

 

You gave the impression that Morrrison were the ones who counted the money in the cash machine.

If so then their claim that it is a private car park and nothing to do with them is dubious.

PDF including them near the start of the chain, I'm going to head down today to take my own and speak to the manager in Morrisons, hoping to be able to get CCTV and proof of purchase, but not holding my breath.

Share on other sites

Right, seems I've been absolutely fleeced on this one.

 

Have spoken to the manager of Morrisons, all transaction records are scrubbed after 28 days, as is CCTV footage. So no way to verify my purchase.

 

They also wash their hands of any responsibility, stating even their bosses get tickets and they can't get out of it.

 

All CCTV outside the store is owned by the car park. So possibility I could request it under GDPR, but almost certain they won't have a camera on the pay and display machine.

 

Signage on entrance to the car park does not show Terms and conditions, but does state see other signage for T&C's. so 50/50 on that avenue.

 

Signage in the car park does state Civil Enforcement will handle the follow up, so the idea of an incorrect company coming after me is also out the window.

 

Parking meters do not state the terms and conditions, but it irritatingly does say enter your registration number. Not sure if I've got anything with that.

 

Attached images of parking meter.

 

Other than this I think I'm royally stuffed,

 

Unless anyone can see a way around it I'm just going to stump up as I have a feeling these guys are very happy to go to small claims court or call up the bailiffs.

 

Thanks for all your help anyway.
