I've looked this up and see it's in Belfast so just ignore it and the letters that follow (see links to threads about the debt collector letters, in my reply above).

BTW we don't need an update to bump this old thread every time you get a letter, we know about them. They won't be trying a court claim in Belfast.
Ticket in a private car park in England/Wales?... DON'T PAY IT BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT- the advice changed in 2012/13!

CLICK on '>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking>' end of the small blue 'Home>Forums>' link, top of the page, to see current threads.
Do NOT read older advice to ignore, unless it was in Scotland or NI.

Default PLEASE!!! UKPC? Just ignore these scammers!

I too got a ticket in Belfast from UKPC, at Yorkgate (Cityside) in January for parking on a paved area that loads of cars were using as the car park was full. If they genuinely wanted people to stop parking there they could easily put up clear signs, bollards or even just traffic cones but they don't because they want people to park there so they can issue phoney PCNs, it's just a cash-cow for them.

I endorse Coupon-Mad's comments, it's not even worth discussing, just ignore ignore, ignore. I am currently onto my 3rd letter from Debt Recovery +, the second was a "Notice of Intended Litigation" (Aye, right!!!) and now laughably the they have a "Reduced Payment Offer". I am patiently waiting the next letter from Zenith Collections (i.e. next desk in the same office) with a further reduced payment offer.

The only line from their letters that had any credibility at all did make me laugh.

"If you do not contact us following receipt of this letter we will have no alternative than to assume that you are avoiding making payment" - No S**t Sherlock!!!

Now sit back, relax , and look forward to playing threatogramme bingo with your computer generated letter chains.

Default Stick with your own thread

Hi Karl
Please keep this in your own thread:
UKPC parking charges at Boucher Crescent ?
or if its a new ticket then start a new thread, gets too confusing otherwise.
But anyway, just keep ignoring. My Boucher Road tickets started in 2011 and I'm felling very unloved since I haven't heard anything from UKPC for quite a few months now.

However, overall activity on this board is massive and wasting time on dead/bumped threads can mean someone with a live problem might not get helped so well.

You also clearly agreed that you would not bump threads as part of your signup!

A reminder to all in NI, or indeed anywhere in the UK to take a little time to complete this Government Survey about Clamping and Private Parking in NI;

http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/...662&highlight=

And yes Karl, continue ignoring the parking scammers.
