    Ignore everything, as in:
    Do not pay
    Do not communicate with them in any way,email, phone, letter
    After 3 or 4 ever more threatening letters they will go away.

    Here's their letter-chain of what you can expect:

    You don't have to do anything. Just ignore them and don't contact them. You have done nothing wrong and you do not owe them a penny. For further reassurance please read the other threads on here that deal with private parking tickets.

    Thanks for the comments but I have already e-mailed them stating that I had a valid ticket giving them the reg no I incorrectly put into the machine.

    Their reply was that my appeal was denied!!!

    I have no intention of paying this fine as I feel they are acting in an unreasonable manner

    They invariably do, the appeals procedure is a total sham.

    Why have you received the fine? Is it because you parked in the aldi car park, stayed for longer than the time shown or didnt shop in aldi?

    Doesn't matter. It's not a fine and Parking Eye should be ignored, as always.

    The thing is these tickets are not enforceable, so no matter what the reason, they have no legal right to pass on invoices to people parking in the car park, and then trying to pass them off as fines, Aldi are perpetuating a scam by these PPC companies, they are scammers, liars and cheats, why pay people who have no ethics or morals, hope they all go out of business!
  • Oopsadaisy
    Please try the new telepathic FAQ about PPC issues.

    Simply think of the question you have about PPCs, now focus and try to project that question onto the screen in front of you.

    Done that? Great.

    Wait a few seconds, whilst I receive your question, now here's my answer to the question.......




























































    Telepathic FAQ says.................Ignore, ignore, ignore.



    This works with any question you care to try, go on test it.

    Keep hold of that till receipt while you continue to ignore the threats. It will help you sleep better at night knowing you have evidence to throw at them should they try their luck in court.

    i recieved one of these un-inforceable invoices from parking eye from parking in a b&q car park. I first received the first letter nearly 3 weeks after i had been to the car park, so a) they cant be that desperate to enforce it takes them 3 weeks to get in touch with you.
    b) i re-searched this alot when it first came into my possession as i refused to pay such a huge 'fine'!
    in march 2008 the law changed to try and make it harder for these companies to scam you, and they decided the best way to do this would be to create two bands, and these bands have a set fines. one set of bands for within london and a set for outside of london.
    these r below:
    within london; in the higher band, the fine will be set between £80-£120. and the lower band fee been between £60-£80.
    outside of london: the higher band fine set between £60-£80 and the lower band set between £40-£60
    There are lots of rules, but basically the lists are dependant of the severity of the conventrations.
    i.e- for parking in a disabled space without dispalying the blue band is classed as higher band, so the fine obviously depends on whether u parked within or outside of london.
    where-as parking in a bay for longer than permittted is classes listed in the lower band.
    I found all this out by doing a google search on parking enforcement rules, and all the information i found out was there in front of mw on the screen. This was when i was decided i wasnt going to pay as my fine was £80, and all i did was park in the bay for 2hours 10 mins, when the permitted time was 1 hour 30 mins. Which in the classes of bands is staying in a bay longer than permitted, i live outside of london, so the maximum fine i should have had was £60. I then googled the company who sent me the 'fine' and there was hundreds of people who had had run-ins with the same company. They all said the same, they got a few letters all stating the threats of baliffs and court etc etc, but after 5 or 6 they give up and try some one else.
    i mean, they pay £2.50 to the dvla to get your details, then the cost of printing a few letters and postage, its less than a tenner, so if one person pays up, then even if the next 7 people dont, they still havent lost anything.

    hope this helps

    Could you please tell us what these so-called laws are that relate to private parking tickets. I have never heard of them and i don't think anyone else has. For a start, the blue badge scheme does not apply in private car-parks, so you cannot be "fined" for that.I think you are confusing legislation that deals with council fines with the (non-existent) "laws" that deal with private parking tickets.

    Come on LauraLeah91104 I am still waiting for information about these so-called laws dating from March 2008, especially the part about those two "bands".

  • Coblcris
    Laura seems to be somewhat confused. March (31st) 2008 was the first day of the TMA.

    Utterly irrelevant to Private Parking Companies.
  • robredz
    As private parking comes under the law of contract, and it is illegal for them to impose a "fine" I cannot see how these so called bands can be enforced
