    • This auction was all undertaken 'on-line' on the 8th June, on their Sandy location... I'm sorry, I am unable to see where the odometer reading is a 0. thanks  
    • Thank you Please explain your words "The optics would not be good". I'm very stressed and not thinking right, sorry.  T&C are here:  Attention Required! | Cloudflare WWW.CURRYS.CO.UK   Each instore trade-in gift card says to use it to buy sepecfic product and that you can't use it towards airtime, certain phones or accessories but it also works on anything else.    Here example of voucher  currys voucher.pdf PS. my friend rang customer services in front of me and his card was emptied by the same person that emptied mine. He got his vouchers from 2x different stores so instore theft by employee isn't valid in this case. 
    • My main argument is that they are in receipt (on balance of prob) of my SAR 2022 letter and my letter of claim.   Regardless of this they chose to insist that my emails in 2021 are what my claim is about by saying:"   ". The Claimant has presented a claim seeking damages for alleged breach of the Data Protection Act 2018, Section 45 (3), following a subject access request he made in 2021.   However, the email chain makes it clear that the Claimant seeks information in relation to a third party's personal injury claim against him"   I'm arguing that they're (alleged) confusion is unwarranted as my most recent communications make it clear that I am intending to claim for my newest request dated 2022...   it seems to me they are purposefully taking advantage of the fact that my particulars of claim does not mention the exact date of my DSAR referred to in my claim, to pretend to confuse my claim with my old DSAR in 2021. Although my new letters which are on their system are clear.   They have:   1. ignored my letter of claim and my DSAR 2022 sent by letter 2. viewed their system and see my new letter for DSAR 2022 and letter of claim, and view my old emails in 2021. 3. insist that my claim is about my old SAR in 2021 and without asking for any clarity (on which DSAR my claim refers to) if they required, immediately fire of an application to strike out and supposedly spend hours on these documents.   (Also, technically, they are claiming that in my older DSAR dated 2021 that they provided all the data relating to me, that is their claim. However there is no evidence of that. I presume only the ICO can confirm such by reviewing their files...)     is what I'm writing making any sense? Please can the experts assess my defence, and let me know whether I should just pay the £1k in case the costs increase if it goes to a hearing.   My claim is only for a very small amount of money but they're claiming £1k..    
    • To answer the question whether Currys has a case against you, someone will need to analyse the detailed terms of the offer, anything you signed etc.    This is not the shoplifting type of case that RLP pursues. If anything, Currys will pursue you, but I can't see this happening. You took advantage of a weakness in Currys' design of the particular promotion. The optics would not be good.    I have the impression that your friend's gift card details may have been used fraudulently. Perhaps he should investigate it further with Currys. I am not sure he is right if his attitude is that you just don't argue any more. 
    • Morning DX,   Crashed out last night!   I shall submit the following defence today and have added point number 6 as you advised regarding the year until which I was in deferment and never earning more than the threshold.     The Defendant contends that the Particulars of Claim are vague and generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.   1. Paragraph 1 & 2 are noted the Defendant has in the past had financial dealings with the original creditor - The Student Loans Company. I am unable to recall the precise details of the alleged agreement or debt nor do I recognise the agreement numbers the claimant refers to. The Defendant has sought verification from the Claimant by way of a section 77 request which as to this date has failed to comply and remains in default.   2. Paragraph 3 & 4 are denied. I am not aware of any service of a Default Notice pursuant to section 87 of the consumer credit Act 1974 by the claimant nor the original creditor, nor of any legal assignment pursuant to the Law and Property Act 1925 section 136 (1).   3. It is not accepted with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant and the Claimant is put to strict proof to:   a) show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement; and   b) show how the Defendant’s alleged debt has reached the amount claimed for; and   c) show the nature of breach and service of a Default Notice and subsequent Notice of Sums in Arrears in accordance with the Consumer Credit Act 1974; and   d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim.   4. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5 (4) it is expected that the Claimant proves the allegation that the money is owed.   5. On the alternative, as the Claimant claims to be an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of section 136 of the Law of Property Act and section 82A of the Consumer Credit Act 1974.   6.  The defendant was in continued deferment until 2020 and has never earned over the threshold.   7. By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief

UKPCL ANPR PCN - overstay -

Posted (edited)

Hi, 

 

I have just received a parking offence through the post from McDonalds.

 

On the 17th April 2022 I was parked in McDonalds from 09:32:28 until 11:52:30 a time of 2 hours 20 minutes.

The car park was relatively empty the whole time.

I was parked there, because after a large night out the night before, I took 2 of my girl mates to maccies.

They were extremely hungover, and we were literally eating McDonalds / in maccies.

We bought food multiple times over the time period. 

 

I have received a £50 parking offence from McDonalds as apparently, the maximum time you are allowed to be parked in Maccies for is 1 hour 30 minutes.

I have never heard of such rubbish.

The fine is from UKPC (UK Parking Control Ltd) 

 

How do I fight this?

I wouldn't mind if I was just parked there and gone elsewhere, but we were literally in the McDonalds, buying food repeatedly. 

 

Happy to provide any and all information required. 

 

Thanks, 

Ryan

It isn't a fine, it's just an invoice.

 

Unless they have used the word 'fine' on their invoice?

 

Ignore UKPC for the moment, and get in touch with Maccies and have them cancel the ticket.

 

Don't get fobbed off with ''it's nothing to do with us, we can't cancel these tickets'' absolute rubbish, they can and they do cancel these tickets because they lose customers otherwise.

 

Can you scan it up but ensure you redact ALL identifiers, VRN Ref No's etc and fill this in please.

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!

Hi @Bazooka Boo, Thanks for the response. It doesn't use the word "fine" but does use the phrase "parking charge". 

 

I've called the maccies multiple times, but they do not answer the phone.. it's one quite a long way away from me, so not one I can go to, to chat to the manager either. 

 

I will keep trying to get through, but if that consistently fails, what's the next steps?

Try emailing them also, fill out the sticky so others can advise you later.

 

DO NOT appeal or correspond with UKPC, the ONLY time you need do anything is ''IF'' they send you a claim form,

 

But this will do the usual rounds of powerless DCA's before they even look at claim forms.

  • dx100uk changed the title to UKPCL ANPR PCN - overstay -

If you get no luck with the local branch then e-mail the CEO  https://www.ceoemail.com/s.php?id=ceo-8918

 

Obviously include proof of purchase and lay it on thick that you "overstayed" as you were spending a load of money in McDonalds, which is surely what they want!

 

And as Bazooka Boo has already asked, please fill in the sticky, we may well have threads on this car park and there is likely to be a lot wrong legally with the fleecers' paperwork.

We could do with some help from you.

The CEO of McDonald's is below

 

[email protected]

He certainly has the power to quash the ticket. Just explain to say how much you were enjoying your time there and how much you all spent as well as saying that you are quite often visitors to McDonalds. 

 

It would have helped had you posted up the questions above which would have included the PCN itself. Quite often they are not compliant with the Protection of Freedoms Act. In fact you would be better to wait until we have seen the PCN and the actual time you were over the time limit as you could use that for additional ammunition to put and end to the PCN.

Yes you can write to the CEO now.

 

The PCN is not compliant with the Protection of  Freedoms  Act 2012. The wording is wrong for a start.  Under Schedule 4 section 9 [2][f] it states 

"(f)warn the keeper that if, after the period of 28 days beginning with the day after that on which the notice is given—

(i)the amount of the unpaid parking charges specified under paragraph (d) has not been paid in full, and

(ii)the creditor does not know both the name of the driver and a current address for service for the driver,

the creditor will (if all the applicable conditions under this Schedule are met) have the right to recover from the keeper so much of that amount as remains unpaid;"

 

That is not quite what the PCN says but in any event all the applicable conditions have not been met.

 

The PCN has to publish the period of parking within which the alleged breach occurred. Instead UKPC have used the arrival and departure times taken from the cameras. This is not the period of parking as obviously it takes time and includes driving from the entrance, finding a parking space and then actually parking, which is then followed by moving the car out of the parking space and making way to the exit.

 

On busy times, or if some occupants of the car are children requiring removal and replacing seat belts and some disabled may have wheel chairs to take out the car and replace them later, all adds to the time which is required to be called the parking period. So by taking that time away from the PCN quoted time and a ten minute grace period as a minimum that twenty minutes can be eaten up so no breach occurred.
