    successful POPLA but i receive letters from debt collector 8th Sep 17 at 11:27 AM
    Hi everyone

    I thanyou all so much for helped me to put togther apppeal for POPLA at the begining of this year, The appeal was successful, on feb of 2017 I have received email from POPLA state that my case was successful and I dont need to pay anything.

    However i have now received letters from debt collector for 140 quid whom credited by APCOA regarding an unpayed PCN, which is the same one with same reference number that was successully approved by POPLA.

    Im looking for opinions for this case, appreciate if you have any advice for me.

    thankyou !!

    Ignore debt collectors is the easiest bit of advice to follow.

    Even more important than complaining to the BPA, who will do nothing, you should complain in writing to your local Trading Standards Department,
    You never know how far you can go until you go too far.

    Yes, agreed complain about this breach by APCOA:

    aos@britishparking.co.uk

    and

    david.dunford@dvla.gsi.gov.uk

    You can also make an online complaint to the Information Commissioner, and in your shoes I would do so*, saying APCOA have continued to process your data, and even worse, have shared your data unlawfully with a third party who have sent unwarranted demands for money, causing you serious distress.

    Use those words.

    Same sort of thing in writing, to Trading Standards at your local Council (and we don't mean the useless CAB!).





    * an upheld ICO complaint paves the way for YOU to claim compensation from APCOA after all this, in the small claims court, and we can tell you how (we are talking a 3 figure sum, what sweet revenge!). I suspect APCOA would offer you an out of court settlement in this situation, as it seems cut & dried!

    PRIVATE PCN? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT TWO Clicks needed for advice:
    Top of the page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.
