    UKCPS "court recovery action" threat 20th Sep 17 at 10:22 AM
    Hi Guys,

    So I was issued a ticket on 12th June from UKCPS.

    After advice I had ignored their letters but have now received a letter which say if I don’t respond within 14 days they will “commence legal action”.

    The letter also starts off with "Letter before court claim"

    Now is this still a threat or should I bite the bullet and pay the fine?

    Thank you all

    None of that is going to be found in a thread (and it's nitty gritty that doesn't mean much - e.g. they never reduce the charge).

    HI all,

    So i sent the letter denying any dept owned and requested they send me any evidence.

    I received a letter back but it has not referenced my original letter or provided any evidence as i requested.

    The amount they say i owe them has gone down from £150 to £100 for some reason and they've given me another 14 days to reply.

    As you got a LBCCC first, and we are now past 1st October, adapt the response in Daniel san's thread (no link); it's right here on page one or two, today with the response to a LBCCC being discussed in depth, with assistance from LOC123 who is a solicitor.

    Stop looking for over-specific things and concentrate more on the next response going out robustly, to hopefully stop UKCPS proceeding because there are so many hoops they must now jump through.

    A poster who has just adapted Daniel san's draft letter to suit their case, is fineanddan, and their thread is also on page one right now. Do what they did!

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

    When UKCPS sent me a LBCC, it wasn't even that, they just gave a generic reply to my letter and then gave the debt to DRP who have now started their letter chain with me.

    I would still send a more robust letter now to UKCPS telling them to cease and desist with the harassment from debt collectors and comply with the new Protocol if they think they have a cause of action in the court. And ask them for all photos taken and a picture of the sign and proof it was on site on the day (basically a list of things covered by the new Protocol).
