    Hi, I can't track down my original post about Matalan and dmp letter, ( I'm not great at these forums) I have read the 'sticky' things as requested. I had a reply from Matalan today saying that I should just pay the fine and that they would send me £50 in vouchers to spend in store (no thanku). What's your thoughts on a nice reply??

    Just click on you user name and select 'Find other posts' to list all your past entries. Anyway, I've done it for you, here's the link:

    http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5611982

    Now go to the bottom right hand corner of the first forum page and click on Crabman or soolin and PM them and ask them to merge this and your original thread. Otherwise this will all become very messy with mixed advice on different threads which at best will be confusing, at worst expensive!
    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.

    Do NOT pay the charge. Simple.
    PRIVATE PCN in England/Wales? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT

    Click on the trail, top of this page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    DON'T read old advice to ignore, unless in Scotland/NI.
