    National debt collections ltd 14th Jul 17 at 5:25 PM
    Hi Guys,

    I have read all relevant threads originating from the 'Newbies thread' and also investigated somewhat similar cases to mine throughout the forum. I am creating a new thread not necessarily for advice but more for reassurance. Two "demand for payment of unpaid parking notice" letters from 'National Debt Collectors LTD' have been received. I have searched the forum and google for previous experiences with this company and have had nothing come up, i then stumbled on their government companies house page which shows they have only been around since 9th of January 2017 making sense of why there is not much on them. The vocabulary used in their letters seems more careful on certain appealable offences so my question is do I treat them as previous debt collectors and just ignore, or do I take a new approach?

    I can send scans of the letters upon request.

    Kind regards

    the general advice for private parking charges (not council) is to IGNORE ALL DEBT COLLECTOR LETTERS

    ergo , IGNORE (NO MATTER WHO IT IS) , providing its not council pcn,s or similar , ie:- ones issued by an authority need dealing with

    private parking firms have no authority whatsoever
    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

    Post Four of the Newbies Sticky covers all debt collectors completely.

    We really don't need more threads on this subject!

    So he's a D*ck of all trades it seems! He's acting on behalf of F1rst parking which I believe are the lowest of the low?

    And yes he will definitely not be receiving time or money. He can stick to stealing the odd nude from people's holiday photos!

    So just to elaborate on this and give it a bit of background, the company who first issued the tickets were F1rst Parking. They have seemed to follow correct protocol, the tickets were first issued attached to the car, they then sent the ntk letter after getting details from the DVLA within the suitable time period, and now they have passed it onto a debt collectors after a few attempts at collecting the fines themselves.

    There has been no appeal as of yet and no written or verbal contact with them as after using bmpa it didn't seem necessary with their cases going court at 0 for this year.

    There has been a defense built up incase it needs to be used and I can provide what intends to be used on here if you guys request it but the driver at the time hasn't been identified to them and will remain that way!

    They have issued court papers in 2017 now, there is a case being defended on here.
    PRIVATE PCN? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT TWO Clicks needed for advice:

    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.

    Does anyone have anymore information on this company and the court case that was mentioned before. Couldn't find anything about the court case so any help would be appreciated.

    Hi,
    I have received 2 x debt collection letters from National debt collections, and also now a notice of intention to prosecute.
    This was for parking in a university car-parking space whilst on a course in May.
    I have been ignoring them but am not sure what to do.

    As many as that? Share capital £1.00, one director listed, no accounts yet filed.

    Debt collectors can be utterly ignored. All they do is waste paper.

    However, does it REALLY say prosecute? Host pics on tinypics and post a link here. Change HTTP to HXXP otherwise the forum wont let you post the links

    I have had a similar letter from national debt collections Ltd this week. I was issued a parking ticket in September from first parking Ltd which I appealed the same week in writing, and heard nothing back. I arrive home this week to a letter from national debt collections for the grand total of £160!! They say no one has received my appeal although I have copies, and they have sent me letters beforehand (no such letter has arrived). I don't know how to contest this seeing as they are adamant my appeal didn't reach them, and whether or not to take the letter seriously or not??
