N/A Hi, As keeper, I have received a PNC from MET Parking over the vehicle being parked in the infamous Stansted Starbucks/Mcdonald’s car park(s). The vehicle was parked outside Starbucks (at night, when it was closed) and the driver went into Mcdonalds. However, the driver wishes to appeal due to the poor and misleading unlit signage, and believes that this PNC is unfair. I am sure you are aware of this company/car park, and I would appreciate any advice on this matter. Kind regards PNC 14.04.2024.pdf
    • The PCN is one of the more compliant that I have seen. however it still fails. There is no period of parking mentioned as required by paragraph 9[2][a] . ANPR cameras only capture the arrival an departure times. It does not record the times you drove from the entrance to the parking place and then from the parking spot to the exit. That means that if you are the keeper then you are not liable to pay the PCN. Only the driver is so do not appeal as you may reveal who was actually driving.if you were not the keeper then as long as the driver is not identified CE will have difficulty on that fact alone. The majority of people with valid motor insurance are allowed to drive your car  and Courts do not accept tha that the driver and the keeper are the same person. On top of that your car was trespassing there since you didn't have a Permit and only the land owner can pursue you not the monkey they employ. The signage is prohibitory in that only permit holders can park there so no contract can be formed. The signage is new apparently so there must be some time allowance for motorists to adjust to the new signs which could mean that  they shouldn't even be issuing you with a PCN. For all those reasons I wouldn't be too much in a hurry to pay them a penny. And well done on posting up the PCN and that sign so quickly. 
    • Dear CAG Team   Given the above, and not knowing what the actual account name is, I will haver to stick with that same name but the Bailiff said that once the variation is done there wont be an issue getting the money off him. What i cannot get my head around is when i set up a new payee, if the name doesn't match the account name my bank wont allow the transfer. So how is it that it authorised and allowed the transfer? Also, given the dealer broike trading standard rules and tried to sell me a death trap, then keep my deposit, why is his bank and mine protecting him by not disclosing his account name or at least making a charge back as i first attempted?   Many thanks
    • DX100UK  ill try to give as much info as i possibly can. this situation goes back to early 2022 i purchased a pc from an online company mac group ltd it was ordered and paid over the phone but they kept changing the delivery date so i ended up phoning them up and cancelling the order and got a full refund then thought it was done with,there was no hp agreement just to be clear. then i was told by mac group the pc had been delivered to mine and had it tracked to my address with a different inital but correct surname no photo of said parcel,so basically ignored it as i was dealing with my dad and my brothers estate which seamed more important as i thought the situation with the pc would sort its self out but it didnt it escalated in to mac group issuing a ccj against me and got the court pack from northants,visited by bailiffs on 3 occasions which i did not engage with,but didnt realise i needed to turn up at court so it was thrown out. mean time ive moved and they dont know my new address but started to email me jan 2024 stating they intend to recomend their client to bankrupt me,got some advice from cab re: applying the case to be set aside but as you will see from the paperwork ive uploaded it was struck off and i have no idea why as the court staff are not legally trained to tell my why when i phoned last week. mac group applied for a n244 statuary demand i am really worried ill lose the house if they do bankrupt me but i do realise i should have dealt with it sooner but i was grieving for two family members not sure thats a good enough reason. thanks. dcbl_Redacted.pdf mac group.pdf

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Hello, I hope you can help with this!


First, a heads up: the difficulty might be that we’ve only found out about the parking fine after more than a year. This is because the car in question was still registered to a house we own but which we haven’t lived in. We’ve now updated the address, and this lovely letter has today appeared.


It’s a Letter of Claim for parking in the private Shepherd Street car park in Liverpool on 14th September 2021. 

I paid at the end of the stay, using their card machine, and obviously paid the amount displayed in full. I have the transaction in my bank statements.


I’m aware that the car park is known for exactly this problem. There’s a thread here from someone who was fined for parking there apx a fortnight after we were there, and I note the comments in that thread on inadequate phrasing of signs. We don’t have access to photos of signs from 2021 and the ones in that thread are no longer available. 

There’s more about the same problems in this article too: 


Mark and Gillian Edwards were 'shocked' when they opened the letter



Having said this, my partner in particular isn’t the type of person to take the chance of an appearance in court going wrong, or to send irate letters in the hope of avoiding court. 

Please can you help?

Despite the sympathetic reporting, the Liverpool Echo is wrong to call these things "fines".


They are not fines, they are invoices from a private company.  A private company doesn't have the power to fine someone.


You need to send the fleecers a snotty letter to show them you've sussed their game and you'd be big trouble for them if they did do court.


But you have a month or so to do that.


Please fill in the forum sticky.


Presumably because of the move you haven't got the original invoice or any other paperwork, right?



We could do with some help from you.

Thanks so much for this. 


If they have no power to fine people then how are they getting away with saying they’re working in partnership with bailiffs ‘as seen on tv’. This is on the letter they’ve sent. What a world we live in. Anyway…


I don’t have a claim form, just a Letter of Claim, so can’t answer many of the questions on the form. I’m also not sure about registering an MCOS at this stage?We’re wary of doing anything official until we’ve had advice. I’ve attached a photo of the letter as a doc, though. And this is the form with the answers I can give:


Which Court have you received the claim from ? 
I can’t see a court mentioned in the letter



If possible please scan redact and upload a full page copy of page 1 of the claim form. (not the response page or AOS)



Name of the Claimant :

ParkingEye Ltd T/A Car Parking Partnership


Claimants Solicitors: 

DCB Legal


Date of issue – 

Letter is dated 04 Jan 2022 (I don’t know when the original letter/s would date to)


What is the claim for  

The vehicle with registration number ———- ("Vehicle") was parked on private land ("Land") managed by our Client. The signs displayed on the Land set out the Terms of parking (i.e. "the Contract"). The Vehicle was parked in breach of the Terms and as such the Contract was accepted and a PCNs) was issued. You are liable as the Keeper or Driver. The details of the PCN(s) can be found in the schedule at the bottom of this letter. Payment was due within 28 days of the PCN(s) being issued but remains outstanding.”



What is the value of the claim?

OK, apologies for uploading the wrong sticky.


There's not much point me putting the right one as you never received the original paperwork so can't give us details anyway.


I've converted your DOC file to PDF.  Your personal details show on DOC.  Best to keep the fleecers guessing!


You need to SAR the fleecers and get your hands on their original invoice.  You also need to formally tell them about your new address otherwise they could easily sent a county court claim form to your old address and win by default.  So, two birds with one stone.  Tomorrow SAR them but insert as a first paragraph -


"Firstly, would you kindly note that I no longer live at XXXXX, instead my new address is XXXXX".


Stick in some I.D. such as a Council Tax bill otherwise they will use lack of I.D. as an excuse not to cooperate.


Send 1st class and make damn sure you get a free Certificate of Posting from the post office.


Then in about three weeks you will need to respond to their Letter of Claim to ridicule their case and put them off doing court.  All the excellent work you've done in investigating the car park will come in very handy.  It's also superb that you've got proof of payment.

We could do with some help from you.
