    PCN Wrong registration number entered on ticket machine

    PCN Wrong registration number entered on ticket machine 31st May 17 at 9:17 AM
    Hi

    Got a PCN NTK letter through the post last week.

    What happened was my partner used my car that morning and when she paid for the ticket, without thinking, she entered her registration number, instead of the registration number of my car which she was driving. Fortunately, she has kept the ticket proving this.
    I have explained all this in my appeal to myparkingcharge but they are insisting I name her and give them her details.
    Are they entitled to do this?

    Thanks in advance for any input

    Thanks for that

    Missed that bit while reading through it this morning. Newbie error!

    My conclusion from reading that stickie is to appeal as the keeper of the vehicle but state my partner was the temporary keeper that morning, while also stating I'm refusing to name her?

    Thanks again

    nope , you appeal as keeper stating that you were not the driver (who shall remain nameless) and that the correct payment was made under VRM ******* (edit it as appropriate) by the driver and their records should confirm this and the pcn should be cancelled as no loss was made by them or their client

    all this "my partner" etc is hogwash, tell em nowt , dont make it easy for these people

    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

    If you have already appealed then that's all you do. NO TRYING IAS, no paying them, no replying to other letters.

    Come back if they try a small claim.

    Thanks all

    Sent them an appeal using the template letter. See what these jokers come back with. They don't supply an email address so it's through their appeal form online only.

    Thanks again

    I've just had a reply from them stating in their opinion entering the incorrect registration number is not a valid excuse even though I have the ticket to prove it! Ridiculous!!

    They've now said I need to appeal to IAS? Any advice greatly appreciated

    This is a very common human error, no big deal, and certainly not worth £100. If they take you to court they are likely to lose. Judges often see this sort of case as wasting the court''s time. After all, the payment was made and no-one was out of pocket.

    It's infuriating! Their records will show the reg entered never went passed their ANPR camera that day. That thread is an appeal to POPLA, I've had a look around but I can't seem to find any template appeal letters to IAS? Do I just give my version of events or is there a template letter anywhere?

    Thanks again

    I am interested to know how this case panned out, as I have received 2 tickets when my boy was taken into hospital and in the worry I didn't realise when using their app I had the wrong registration number entered.

    So again I have paid for the correct amount of time on both occassions, so no loss incurred to anyone. But I just paid for a different reg.

    Each ticket has now been raised to £149 I was just wondering if there was anything I can do to put an end to all this (obviously apart from paying it), rather than sitting and waiting to see how aggressive their next actions will be ?

    Phil, this thread is several months old, it is unlikely that the OP will revisit this site so please start your own thread, help will then be forthcoming. But before doing so watch this video

    http://parliamentlive.tv/event/index/2f0384f2-eba5-4fff-ab07-cf24b6a22918?in=12:49:41

    MPs are legislating to close down these scammers, give them the ammunition they need, complain in robust terms to your MP.
    You never know how far you can go until you go too far.

    Please read the NEWBIES thread (see my signature) and if your PPC is VCS or Excel (like on this thread) then you need to read post #2 to recognise the BW Legal bulls**t letters that will need a response.

    No-one pays, until a court loss (and on this forum we helped fully-coached posters to win 99% of cases in 2017, with just TWO lost, no effect on credit rating as they then paid about £200 as ordered. Very rare for us to lose!).
