    Parking ticket from PCS PLEASE HELP 14th Sep 17 at 3:57 PM
    Hi there guys I just received a letter today from PCS parking collection services stating how I owe them £60. The pcn date of issue was 08/09/17 time 09:36 the reason for issue was parked within a restricted area. I'm about to appeal on they're website with the blue template, but would be amazed if I can get any help and has anyone had any dealings with this company? Do I need to be afraid? Shall I just pay it?

    Your help would be appreciated

    PCS is not a parking company , its another name for DRP and ZENITH

    check the details to see who the ACTUAL ppc is
    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

    So who is the parking ticket from PCS or CUP

    What do the signs say. ?

    As said above, PCS is a trading name of DRP who are
    simply "crazzie frog" debt collectors

    Nothing to worry about with this shabby lot and do not pay

    Highly possible you will start getting stupid letters from DRP
    making all sorts wild claims and telling you lies

    Just go ahead with your appeal. it will show you tried
    It will be rejected BECAUSE that's what scammers do

    Then put up with pathetic debt collector letters which of course
    you will ignore as they are scammers trying to extort
    money from you

    If these goons attempt court by using one of their
    incompetent solicitors. then come back here for all the
    help you need

    PS: Do not phone them and especially .... you are not the driver
    They have trained baboons that even London Zoo would be ashamed of

    CUP Enforcement trading name of Close Unit Protection Ltd. Seem to be a one man band outfit providing doormen, security, protection, bodyguards etc. branching out into parking 'enforcement'. Probably ex clampers, you know the type

    They are a BPA Approved Operator.

    They will be using PCS aka DRP aka Zenith for their back office services.

    I presume the letter from PCS will be a 'Notice to Keeper'.
    You will have received a 'Notice to Driver' (ticket on the windscreen).

    I remember CUP, dead easy for a registered keeper to beat at POPLA, with the usual templates.

    Is the PCS letter asking for £120?

    Was there a windscreen PCN - when?

    Was the PCS letter received at your house, within 14 days of the parking event?

    You need to give us more details about the car park etc., without giving away or inferring who was driving.
    Also if possible put up here a scan of the windscreen ticket and the NTK letter from PCS, with all identifying details (your name, address, VRM ) covered up.

    They don't have Traffic Wardens. These firms have high-turnover employees incentivised to take photos for money. Not 'Wardens'. CUP are not a big players; easy to beat at POPLA. I doubt they can even string a sentence together!

    They call it a Warden - we call them x??!!xx?!!

    Don't give them a status they do not deserve,it's a scumbag gutter-dwelling *job* for megalomaniacs.

    Anyway this is a BPA firm so send PCS the BPA template appeal to get a POPLA code, as per the NEWBIES thread.
