    6 Years Later PCN Fine.. 17th Oct 16 at 10:52 AM

    on 19th Nov 2010 my missus got a PCN but the car was registered in my name so the fine came to me.

    I came on here and found out that the fine was "un-enforcable" and duly went on to send the 3 template letters (found here on MSE) to the company, Vehicle Control Services LTD (VCS Ltd), who were chasing the fine.

    After the third letter I've not heard back from VCS Ltd (or anyone).

    Until this Saturday 15th Oct 2016, some 6 years later...I received a letter from "BW Legal" stating that they have been instructed by VCS to collect an outstanding balance. Threatening potential court action, costs, etc...

    So my question is, what course of action can/should I take?

    please repost in the parking ticket sub forum , vcs/bw are well known and have sent out 1000,s of those begging letters as of 19.11 you are "immune" from them taking you to court , perhaps a game of "royal mail ping pong" may delay them , ask some questions by fist class with free proof of posting

    they are hoping you will have moved house and getting a default ,
    Have YOU had to walk 500 miles?
    Were you advised to walk 500 more?
    You could be entitled to compensation.
