    ECP Windscreen PCN - Now DRP Letters

    ECP Windscreen PCN - Now DRP Letters 23rd Nov 17 at 6:04 PM
    So long story short the keeper ignored a windscreen pcn issued by Euro car parks back on the 8th Aug 2017. As keeper i followed the ignore route then got issued NTK from ECP on 11/09/17.
    ignored this.

    Then have 3 DRP+ letters chasing debt.
    DRP+ 1st letter 13/10/17 - £130
    2nd letter - 02/11/17 -£130
    3rd letter 17/11/17 Final settlement £110 to avoid court action. the letter is from DRP+ on the header. Have until 01/12/17 to settleor they recoment the client to appoint a solicitor and take court action.

    Should i still ignore this - or shoudl i repsond (any templates to claim harrassment) or anything as keeper. what are my options. seen some threads where it says you can respond but tells you to IGNORE

    DO you need to see a copy of the letter?

    what should i do? and advice appreciated.

    You have another thread about ECP.

    Is this related?

    You need to read post #4 of the NEWBIES thread which explains exactly how to deal with debt collector's letters.

    OK, but all DRPLus cases are the same = ignore them, no need for any more threads about it. We've seen thousands of these darn letter chains over the years, no more please...

    The advice is clear in that thread and in the newbies faq. Ignore!


    The ppc has 6 years to take legal action against you


    After that they cannot.


    Don't ignore court correspondence or a LBCCA. See the newbies faq thread for advice on dealing with those if and when you get them

    You would be wise to keep your current address details up to date with all companies that have the possibility of starting court action against you.

    As things stand at the moment, if you don't do that you may well find that you will get a County Court Judgement against you without your knowledge.

    DRP/ZENITH/PCS

    do you not think all this has been tried before ? and failed ?

    they are under their clients instructions and although I have been coming here for 5 years I havent seen any evidence of it working and the regulars on here wont bother advising you or anyone else to the contrary, the subject has been done to death

    my advice is IGNORE , always was , always is , always will be

    you must do as you see fit , your choice , but do not expect another debate on it on here

    I thought the CM explanation and copy and paste about harassment was superb and covered all the points anyone could possibly raise
