    Parkingeye CCJ in wrong name

    Parkingeye CCJ in wrong name 12th Jun 17 at 2:05 PM
    Hello,

    My mother has ignored all letters from ParkingEye, but it seems like they won't let this particular case go.

    They've now sent a letter saying a CCJ has been obtained for £197. However, every correspondence they sent was in a misspelt name, think e.g. 'Reed' instead of 'Read'.

    Is this enforceable? Also, why wouldn't we have received anything at all from the court itself?

    The miss spelling has no mileage (unless your Mother is not the person they have been chasing for payment)


    The CCJ will be enforceable unless she gets it set aside

    Thanks for your quick response.

    That seems bizarre to me. At what point is the legal distinction made about the person being chased for the debt?

    Obviously everybody's main concern is future credit. Unless there's some kind of 'fuzzy matching' done by credit agencies, presumably any future applications for credit in the genuine name wouldn't be affected by the CCJ registered in the incorrect name?

    What I meant was that if there is mistaken identity and your Mother knows nothing about this matter, then of course she should get this sorted, but if she is the person who they claimed against then a letter wrong in the paperwork won't "get her off"


    She can keep her credit rating clean by paying up promptly (within the time scale of 30 days from the date of the judgement), or getting the CCJ set aside

    Why did she ignore a court claim? Sorry but - why?! Why not research these claims?

    Same advice as to this hapless victim:

    The options for getting this set aside are mentioned there. All explained in the NEWBIES thread.
