    Newbies !!
    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

    You do realise the answer will be to decline your 'appeal'? You should not have done that, you've given away who was driving.

    Please read the NEWBIES PLEASE READ THESE FAQS FIRST thread, top of this forum.

    Get the Gym Manager to cancel it, ask urgently (this week) and take a copy of the fake PCN with you, and keep the original. Insist it is cancelled, do NOT be told to 'appeal'. Tell them you have researched and Excel do not allow appeals, and they sue people - and if they do you will get the Gym added into the claim to answer for why they are penalising Gym members and not cancelling PCNs you KNOW they can, with one email/phone call.

    Be VERY assertive (but polite too), deep breath, and only speak to the Gym Manager.

    To see other PCNs just like yours, search the forum for 'myparkingcharge.'

    NO-ONE here pays these.

    Just received a letter and they have increased the fine to £100!!

    No knowledge of my appeal stated in the letter

    Is this a scare tactic? This is very worrying for me

    You were expecting that, having read all the other threads you searched for earlier and read.

    To see other PCNs just like yours, search the forum for 'myparkingcharge.'

    NO-ONE here pays these.
    Your case is the same as all the others. Same old stuff, please read some other threads rather than panic at each poxy letter. At this rate you will be screaming with fear when you get a BW Legal letter demanding £160, because so far you appear to have read no other threads.

    Everyone gets the same stuff. Yes they escalate the cost. Do you pay? Nope.

    This will end by you winning a court defence, so get a grip, this is early drivel.

    This is £100 PCN, they all are, all the same. Not to be paid. Read other threads exactly like it.

    Read the NEWBIES thread and all the zillions of other Excel threads. This is already covered, and it is a total joke that they are pretending this 'PCN' is not a 'PCN' yet it leads to people appealing it and being rejected (that's a PCN then...).

    You really need to read all the other threads like yours, we can't keep repeating the same stuff.

    What happened when you were assertive with the Gym Manager which is the only way to cancel it?

    Ive now received a Notice of Intended Court proceedings letter and the fine has now gone to £100

    Apologies in advance but Im not good at all this terminology, I have gone on the advice on here and friends to ignore this.

    I did appeal this at the £60 and they ignored it and issued the fine for £100, any help is greatly appreciated, I have looked at the stickys on here but its like a maze trying to understand it all



    Thank you for your time in reading this

    Advice on here to ignore it...I don't think so. That advice stopped in 2012. For clarity if anybody else reads this thread do not ignore tickets.

    Please tell your friends who said ignore it that they are muppets. Better still ask them to represent you in court if it gets that far, god forbid.

    In the Newbies thread is a section on Letters before Claim. Treat this as one and respond vigorously denying the charge.

    Judging by this comment I doubt you have read the NEWBIES thread (a basic and essential requirement of any poster needing advice) or researched any other Excel cases?

    Have you even read the advice already given to you by Coupon Mad? I suspect not, as you are repeating things she has already corrected you on.

    Have you assertively told the gym manager to get the charge cancelled as advised 3 times above?

    Nothing that has happened so far is unusual or unexpected... So you're about to get a court claim from Excel... Welcome to the club - I could wallpaper my house with them

    How much have I paid them..... "£0"

    How much have they paid me.... Over £100

    We will help you defend this claim, but you need to get on the ball, do lots of research and follow the advice given which sometimes requires taking action.

    If you're not prepared to put the effort in then neither are we. We have a lot of people to help and we do all this for free.

    Your very quick to Judge, when someone is asking for help, this is meant to be a friendly site, and some people dont understand the in's and out's of the templates involved. For eg if it was an elderly person they may not have the knowledge to fight their corner and just pay it to not cause any hassle.

    - Yes I have read other stickies and peoples posts - and everyones situation/story is different.

    I have spoken to the Manager - on many occasions and they are unable to help

    If you have had so many, shall I continue to fight this or just 'give in' so to speak. Its very daunting when this hasnt happened to me before.

    I am prepared to put the effort in, hence why doing the original post.

    Just read post #2 of the NEWBIES thread...we have had so many and we win almost all (only ONE lost in a year).

    Don't read other stickies or other threads which make you confused.
