    Vanquish debt prior to legal action letter 17th May 17 at 11:48 AM
    Good morning, I've been a long time admirer of this forum and used its advice but I now need personal help. I received a parking notice in August for parking slightly over the white line whilst in Blackpool. Once the letter came through I read up about it online and that you shoulf ignore all letters until court papers arrive.
    I'm now at the stage where vanquish debt have sent me a letter today that is titled 'Prior to legal action'. What do I do? I don't want this going to court, am I best just to pay the fine?

    So you say you admire the forum but don't pay any attention to the advice given on it - weird!

    You ned to read the 'NEWBIES' sticky post at the top of the parking board, figure out which stage you are at and start following the advice. If you have any specific questions you can use this thread to ask them.

    Have YOU had to walk 500 miles?
    Were you advised to walk 500 more?

    Vanquish are the same firm as the PPC, advice is to ignore all debt collectors.

    Ignore debt collectors - but come back if the parking firm try a claim. Defendable, and we win.

    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.
