DCBL and unpaid parking charge


Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

 

So long story short,

I have just received a notice of debt recovery in the post from dcbl.

 

I opened it because it was addressed to Mr. so and so (my surname but for both first and last name) for an unpaid parking charge that was given back in 2017.

 

I looked up the number plate and the car was actually my mothers car, same initials but different addresses. 

I think they may have chanced sending it to my address as this is the first time I have received any letter of the sort. 

 

Should I call them and tell them this isn't the right address or just ignore it. 

 

Thanks.

no you tell your mum you have it.

 

this is a typical game by them to send things to a wrong address

then they'll go for a backdoor CCJ.

 

i will gather at some point in time she did park there

and broke one of rules of the imaginary contract she signed upto by driving in there.

 

she doesn't need to pay it.

but certainly needs to inform the parking company in WRITTING of her correct address.

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Brilliant. I have told her I have received it as I was not impressed. I'll get her to write to them too. 

Thank you so much for your advice.

Thanks, I will show her this site when I see her next. Shes not very internet savvy. She probably won't pay it anyway but that's nothing to do with me :)

poss not 

but once that is done.

she might get a letter of claim

 

which need to be dealt with the proper way

and not ignored.

but i'll state again..that doesnt mean it needs paying.

That's fine.

Just to add to my site team colleague's comment above, you say that it's her ticket and nothing to do with you – but if she is the kind of person who is not Internet savvy et cetera then maybe if it goes as far as a letter of claim or even a claim, she may get quite frightened.

Be warned that she will get lots of intimidating letters from DCBL and they may even refer to their infamous TV program 'Can't Pay, We''ll Take It Away' but be advised that in this form they are not acting as baliffs but as powerless Debt Collectors.

Follow the advice given here and your Mum won't pay these shisters a penny.
