    You!!!8217;ve posted this on 3 unconnected threads. Please stop.

    You need to read the NEWBIES FAQ sticky, post #1, then if you have any subsequent queries, post a new thread of your own.
    We cannot provide you with a silver bullet to get you out of this. You have to be in for the long run, and need to involve yourself in research and work for you to get rid of this. It is not simple. We will help, but can't do it for you.

    If I want to post 100 threads I can do so there is no law on here to say otherwise. I wasn't aware of any law and didn't know you was the MSE police. I have taken what you have said into consideration and have removed previous post.

    A successful complaint about ParkingEye at the infamous Chelmsford Riverside Retail Park (of the Beavis case):

    This is the contact for the car park owners CBRE that we were given by the store manager at Riverside Retail Park:

    They were very polite and helpful, unlike Equita!

    I am so glad that someone else other than myself has suffered the wrath of a superior being. I gave up posting as I didn't have a clue what I was doing. All I got was a load of vitriol when I commented I didn't know the difference between a sticky, post, thread and my left elbow (which is slightly !!!!!!! - in the medical term).

    ParkingEye Double-Dip - cancelled by Morrisons within two working days
    Morrisons must be heartily sick of ParkingEye by now.

    A couple of weeks ago, PE sent us a speculative invoice for £85 claiming that our vehicle had overstayed its welcome at Morrisons, Ross-on-Wye by nearly 5 hours.

    Having obtained proof that the vehicle had made two separate visits to the car park lasting less than an hour each, we submitted a strong email of complaint to donotreply@morrisonsplc.co.uk.

    Two working days later, Morrisons replied to confirm that the PCN had been cancelled..

    Success at Sainsbury's Salford
    Retailer: Sainsbury's Superstore, Salford
    Whoever cancelled it: Julie - Duty Manager at Sainsbury's, Salford
    PPC: Euro Car Parks (ECP)
    Car park: right outside Sainsbury's, Salford
    Incident date: 16/01/2018
    Scam: Pay £70 (£40 within 14 days)
    Mum's PCN came through post (no windscreen) on 25/01/2018. Crime is for shopping (parking) over 3 hours in Sainsbury's on 16/01/2018. Googled, read first link, NEWBIES guide, 'nuff read. Went in store and called down the Duty Manager, she promptly stated ECP is a different company and she can't do anything about it. Yet she was pretty confused why someone would want to give their custom to her shop for over 3 hours. Very sceptical and dying to know the truth she turned to her boy at the security stand for a glimpse into the past and confirmed CCTV footage of my mum walking in more than 3 hours before the time printed on Sainsbury's receipt. After seeing that she came to her senses and remembered her job as Duty Manager was to retain customers and offered to email ECP and cancel the PCN. Next day got a call from Sainsbury's in the evening for the good news.
    I hope this will be useful for all who use that particular car park and thanks to all contributors on these threads.

    How to get Asda to cancel a ParkingEye rogue PCN piece of trash:

    http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5788297

    I put the appeal in using your template with copy of bank statement entries and then went to ASDA customer services desk.

    I soaked up the expected lecture whilst being assertive about my reasons why they should cancel the PCN. The customer service person was able to log onto their system and instruct PE to cancel the PCN.

    I got them to write 'cancelled' with date, name and signature on the PCN as they said they couldn't print off or email me a confirmation of the cancellation. Two days later had a letter from PE saying the PCN was cancelled and no outstanding payments.

    Success Story - PE - Morrisons Chorlton Manchester
    Thought I'd share *another* success story, this time a letter from Parking Eye with regard to the car park in Chorlton, Manchester.

    Basically I'd parked in the Morrisons car park on Sunday 28th January after the store had closed in order to take a very dear friend of mine to the Strictly Come Dancing tour at the MEN. We parked, caught the metro/tram and had a great evening. We then came home and thought no more about it. I should add neither of us are particularly nimble or agile on our pins and it was by way of celebrating her 64th birthday and a treat for me after becoming 64 myself last November.

    Anyway I digress. On Sunday 4th February, I received a letter from ParkingEye 'demanding' parking charge amount of £85 payment to be made within 28 days of date issued or, discounted to £50 if paid within 14 days of date issued. Fortunately I'd been to these threads before after a case in the car park behind the Chorlton Shopping Centre when visiting the clinic, and so decided to write because this time I had someone to write to - namely Morrisons. Before being a car park with lots of different stores, a DSS office building etc, there was none but I was incensed to receive one now as the store was closed and therefore wasn't depriving Morrisons of any financial benefit or its customers looking for a parking place to shop there so I wrote to the store manager (Alan) complaining, explaining what had happened and asking him to kindly cancel the parking ticket!

    After a week I'd heard nothing so decided to call and ask and he apologised for not having contacted me but assured me that he had cancelled the ticket *immediately* upon reading my letter and that I should receive no further contact from ParkingEye, which at the time of writing I haven't, and that if I did, to take it/them into him and he would get it sorted out for me. I'd also mentioned that as the store was closed at the time, I clearly hadn't gone into shop on that occasion but that I was a customer, both in store *and* online so he said he hoped that it restored my faith in Morrisons, which I assured him it had and yes, I will continue to shop with them but if I'd not at the time been aware of much that is contained within these threads with regard to private parking tickets, I might simply have rolled over and, albeit with great reluctance, found myself paying this exorbitant charge so if this helps others who find themselves in this situation being able to extricate themselves from it, that would be great!

    Cheers, Nick

    Well done on getting Ms to cancel. They seem to not like PE!

    that I should receive no further contact from ParkingEye
    Ordinarily PE write to the registered keeper to confirm cancellation, so you might just get one final contact from them.

    Good work.

    Popla Appea Rejected
    Just hoping someone can assist. I received two car parking charges within three days for parking my vehicle in a private car park. As I have two young children I use the app to pay as it is safer than standing in the road. Unfortunately, I didn't update the app with my new car registration, only bought two months previously, and my old reg was automatically entered. I appealed to Popla as I had the evidence that I had paid for my parking but that due to an administrative error the app was not updated. Do I have a case to further appeal this as it was a genuine error and I had paid for the parking.
