    PCN Help! 15th Jun 17 at 4:21 PM
    Hi again,

    Just need some clarification .

    Ok so I received a parking ticket from Civil enforcement limited (based in Liverpool) back in March and made the mistake of telling them that I was the owner of the vehicle.

    Apparently they sent me a letter with a POPLA Code of which i did not receive. I have stupidly responded to two of the letters sent to me.

    Their argument is that my registration details were not on the ticket that Issued to me -due no fault of my own .

    I still have the copy of my ticket of which I sent them a copy. Is it worth going back and forth with them?? Most of the previous posts on here suggest to ignore .

    My concern is that I do not want bailiffs turning up at my door . How far do they normally go?

    Any advice ?

    Read up in the newbies FAQ thread near the top of the forum to learn about the game you are now caught in.

    No chance of bailiffs unless you get a ccj against you and you ignore it

    IGNORE them for now

    bailiffs wont be rocking up at anyones door, not without a court order

    CEL do issue court claims but they rarely if ever follow them through AS LONG AS the person receiving it puts up a strong defence, plenty of examples on this forum

    CEL have 6 years to try court, so sit back and only deal with it if an MCOL arrives on your doorstep from Northampton ccbc

    pointless arguing with morons, so dont bother , but keep all paperwork and evidence for over 6 years , in a folder

    Ok thanks .

    It's very trusting to be honest . As painful as it may be - I'll ignore any future letters that may come through the post.

    I didn't think they were able to issue fines if you registration number wasn't on the parking ticket . That's an issue with the machine , not me .

    they cannot issue fines, thats for sure

    they can send an invoice for perceived rule breaking , even if it was a faulty machine

    these are sc@mmers(ex=clampers) that have found an unregulated industry that allows them to prey on people like yourself, sometimes for minor transgressions

    dont IGNORE all letters, remember , one from Northampton court should NOT be ignored, so watch out for that one
