    Confused!

    Confused! 26th May 17 at 10:50 AM
    Hey,

    I've read the newbie thread but I'm still really confused (probably to do with being in Scotland and most of it applying to England & Wales).

    Anyway, I parked in a car park for work back in March and completely forgot to pay. The actual car park only has a coin operated machine and you can use your phone to pay by card. I usually use my phone, but completely forgot as was in a rush!!

    I got a ticket on my car and ignored it. My partner, the registered keeper, has received two letters from the car parking company (NCP) asking for payment which we ignored as well. He's now just received another letter from ZZPS, claiming to be a debt collection agency and asking for payment of the fine of £100 and a £60 admin fee (which seems excessive) but no deadline of when to pay. All of these letters have come via redirection as we have moved but forgot to update our details!

    Do we just keep ignoring the letters? Does my partner get in contact with either NCP or ZZPS and advise he wasn't driving the car (but neglect to state who was)?

    Thanks,
    Jade x

    Continue to ignore, they cannot sue you, and do not who was driving.
    You never know how far you can go until you go too far.

    How can the word 'Ignore' be 'really confused' in the context of Scotland.

    How lucky you are up there.
    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.

    There is no confusion at all for Scotland. IGNORE/no contact all the way.

    I actually have read it, read it a few times actually but still didn't understand.

    Only wanted help, especially as a lot of the newbie thread is only relevant in England and Wales and doesn't apply to Scotland...

    Is there a circumstance I do HAVE to pay it? We've received a letter, dated the 6th June, stating it will be passed to solicitors next...

    to explain ignore ..... and that is IGNORE

    You are in Scotland where they need to know who the driver is.

    Without that info, who will they take to court ? They don't know
    themselves ??

    Silly stupid debt collectors mean nothing, all they can do
    is scream and shout until they get fed up and pass it back to
    the PPC.

    then ..... the PPC needs to know who the driver is.
    They don't so IGNORE THE RUBBISH

    Good grief if you think Umkomaas is rude how on earth are you going to deal with the lies, bullying, and rubbish that the ppc and debt collectors throw at you!

    Ignore the lying muppets unless you get real court papers, which will be very unlikely if you follow the advice on here.

    Debt collectors cannot even take you to court in England let alone Scotland.
