    Contractual parking charge final notice g24 19th Jan 17 at 12:52 PM
    Hey just wondering is there any chance for advise?
    Around end of November 2016 I got a parking ticket from company called G24 they give me a chance to pay less if payment made within 14 days £60 so I went online and came across this forum and took advice to complain to retailer "Sports Direct " they completely ignored me not replaying to my email . Christmas period was a bit more intense this year and I completely forgot about that ticket up till couple of days ago when I received Final notice letter reminding me to pay £100 .I know you advised to always appeal but I didn't because completely forgot and I don't know what to do now should I pay ? Please advise at you earliest convinience and thank you .

    its appeal + ignore

    OR

    ignore

    come back if you get an LBC or an MCOL within 6 years

    and try to get the landholder to cancel it if you can (complain)

    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se

    IGNORE IT.

    Even if you had appealed it falls on deaf because they belong to a pretend sham organisation called IPC/IAS run by Gladstones solicitors who are in turn incompetent as you will see on here.

    G24 don't do court because some time ago, the courts cost them a lot of money.

    You can expect a few months of crazy debt collectors begging for money but you simply ignore them because there is ZERO they can do.
    Only G24 can take it further and that is very doubtful

    Sports Direct are an ignorant company both to their own staff and customers alike.

    A warning on their facebook page about the company and the car park are in order and Trip Advisor works well.

    Do not contact G24 at any time as these parking companies employ nasty little rats to make threats.
    Never ever say who the driver was.

    Just wait now to see what they do, probably nothing

    If it is a multi-retail park, what happened when you complained to the landowner or managing agent for the whole site (easy to Google almost any site to find a contact).

    No-one here pays G24.

    Where was this sports direct store? its likely to be, as C-M stated above a retail park where sports direct are tenants

    Go on SD's Facebook page and write some very bad stuff. Also Twitter etc.

    Also, write letters of complaint to all the retail outlets present, whether you shop with them or not, theses PPCs can only cause them to lose custom.

    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.

    Go back an insist. Stand there holding the offending fake PCN and stay at the CS desk till they cancel.

    AND complain again assertively to the Head offices of Dreams and SD AND Google the place if it has a name for that 'retail park' and find the managing agents.

    DO NOT CONTACT DRP AND DO NOT PAY

    Personally, I would make an appointment to see your local Trading Standards and show them this letter

    Not only is it very misleading but it is menacing, it's a method to extort money from you

    Real solicitors would never pimp out their letterhead, thus showing you that Gladstones is not an ethical company and should never be part of the SRA, LET ALONE RUN AN ATA

    Same as all the other cases where people get this letter. Load of trash, a debt collector letter, in fact.

    What happened when you insisted on the retailer Store Manager cancelling this one ages ago?

    You really need to get retailer cancellation to quash this and avoid any court threat hanging over you for years.

    Try the site Managing Agents, the overall people who run the retail park (Google it and find them).

    I think I will try again with retailer I can't afford really to pay £160 and court proceedings sound even more expensive . Will keep you posted .
