    I have a valid ticket 13th Sep 17 at 9:22 PM
    I have today received a Parking Charge Notice,Notice to Keeper letter from Excel parking.
    It refers to 2/9/17 when a vehicle a was parked in a car park which they have listed as PRIVATE LAND.It is a car park on a small retail park.The reason for issue is 83) Parked without clearly displaying a valid ticket/permit.The charge is £100.There is a valid ticket with the car registration on for this particular occasion of parking which I have in my possession. It was displayed on the dashboard but may not have been the right way around.I will obviously be appealing this Notice but would appreciate some advice as to how to go about it.I did wade through lots of posts but none of them seemed to refer to incidents where there was a valid ticket.
    I have attempted to login to the account of "myparking charge.co.uk" and although there is a button to pay ,when I go to the lodge an appeal site it asks for login details including a passcode...nowhere on the letter or on the site can I find any reference to a passcode so I am unable to go any further.

    Go there again and read through the advice there on how and when to appeal.

    I have just submitted an online appeal..however when looking at the photographic evidence .There are a series of photographs over at least a ten minute span,the last of which is a photo of a Notice placed under the windscreen wiper.The driver was unaware of this.
    Having read the forums am I right in thinking that the letter I received today was sent too soon.I had already sent my appeal just prior to noticing this.Which way should I pursue it now?

    Have you read the newbies FAQ thread?

    If so you will know the futility of sppeals to IPC companies

    Now wait and see if they take legal action against you. Come back for advice on how to defend it if they do.

    Ignore debt collectors throughout

    Thank you for your advice,I apologise if as a newbie I sound silly or that I have not read the relevant posts.Please consider though that I am a newbie...you are obviously very au fait with all this and it is second nature to you.I know you must get very fed up answering the same questions again and again .

    Yes, which is why there is a newbies thread to explain this to you. Youre expected to read it and understand it, and come back only if yo uhave something novel

    Search the forum for the words I've bolded, to see what's been said about this scam. The DVLA were not keen on the fake PCN trick Excel play, but they've been persuaded that it's OK because the IPC are going to 'update the Code' to allow for it!

    Nothing changes the fact this modus operandi (and the wording of the NTK) do not comply with the POFA so we hope the driver wasn't named or implied in the appeal. Keeper can't be held liable but the IAS is not worth trying, so ignore.

    Come back if you get a small claim later on, and keep all letters.

    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.
