    Help, what do I do now? 16th May 17 at 5:17 PM
    Hi all,
    Any advice?
    I had a ticket come through the post after parking at my local hospital, the machine's had been covered in bin bags and as it was Christmas time I presumed it was free parking, I didn't see any signs and thought nothing of it.
    I have an IVA and struggle with depression so often ignore my post. I have not contacted them as I hoped they would go away but I have now had a letter threatening civil court proceedings. I am scared they will go through with this but don't have the money to pay, any advice??

    who is the PPC involved ?

    who sent the latest letter ?

    which country are you situated in ?

    have you complained to PALS at the hospital ?

    if not , why not ?

    I can assure you that this "will not go away"

    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

    What happened when you complained to PALS to get them to cancel it for you?
    PRIVATE PCN? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT TWO Clicks needed for advice:
    Top of the page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.

    strange that its a solicitors as its PE

    PE issue their own court claims (about 25 to 30 thousand a year)

    so if this is an LBC from a valid Solicitors then you need to respond and rebut and refute the claims being made , in writing

    and you need to contact the trust and/or PALS urgently (in writing) and get it cancelled before a court claim is issued (why did you answer the other questions and not this last one ?)

    Ok I guess as it was over a year ago, it has been handed over to solicitors!??
    I will write to PALs and the Solicitors refuting the fine and explain I cannot pay!?
    Thank you

    "I will write to PALs and the Solicitors refuting the fine and explain I cannot WILL NOT pay

    Concentrate on why you should not have to pay i.e. bin bags over the pay machines
