    I got a PCN from Civil Enforcement Ltd for overstaying at a car park outside a casino. all this time I been there I didn't know you have to tell the casino for my parking, anyway long story short. they sent me a PCN which I ignored because they spelt my surname wrong by 1 letter. After months of letters they sent me it started to annoy me, so I told the casino about it and sent the a copy of the letter to them by email. 2 months passed and I haven't received anymore so I thought the casino had sorted it out. This morning I received a claim form from county court but civil enforcement ltd. what do I do now? Even on the claim form they still mispell my surname.

    I know I need to register at moneyclaim to reply to them, but do I register using my correct spelling name or the mispell name they used?

    Your name. The misspelling may have come from the DVLA Keeper registration so check that and amend if needed.

    Once the Acknowledgement of Service has come through then do a defence.

    Background: Claims take 30 weeks to get to the hearing stage. 30 weeks from now is Xmas when they know people will fold which is why the parking companies time this surge in claims to particular periods in the year.
    Life's for living, get on with it rather than worrying about these. If they hassle, counter claim.

    Yawn, do we think CEL do this on purpose so numpties might ignore claims, or write like a victim and say 'you've spelt my name wrong' and not actually defend? I wouldn't put that past CEL.

    Same as your case. Happily, every time a CEL claim is well defended they discontinue or the case is stayed due to their inaction, so why are we repeating this on every thread every day? Just use the forum as intended and search it.

    The answer is here, on every CEL defence thread. Easy to copy from.

    PRIVATE PCN in England/Wales? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT

    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.

    322 sounds rather excessive for one alleged overstay. Do they not know that there are limits for the amount they can claim? In any case, why has not the casino sorted this out.

    CEL seems to be sailing pretty close to the wind court-wise, when is a judge going to do them some serious damage?

    Forget that, as Emanresu says it's likely your DVLA details are 'wrong' by one letter. It is no showstopper in a defence (please note correct spelling - especially as you are so concerned about a letter being incorrect! ).

    This needs a full and proper defence. Please read current CEL threads that are presently littering the first page of this forum.
    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.
