    Yes

    They are litigious

    But you have not read here that court cannot be the outcome of not paying these invoices!!

    Any creditor has that option over unpaid invoices.

    They have 6 years to start legal proceedings

    Parking eye are one the the most aggressive company's putt there in terms of taking people to court.
    Don't worry, you're in the right place.

    first of all, why did your vehicle get a parking ticket, and in who's car park?

    PE, at their most litigious a few years ago, were issuing 30,000 (yes, thirty thousand) court claims a year. They’ve ‘cooled’ more of late, but in the past 3 years they actually processed the following numbers through the courts.

    2015 - 1,336
    2016 - 1,468
    2017 - 1,080

    We cannot provide you with a silver bullet to get you out of this. You have to be in for the long run, and need to involve yourself in research and work for you to get rid of this. It is not simple. We will help, but can't do it for you.

    fortunatly we have not seen any claims by PE on ALDI property , possably aldi do not want to be associated in c court claims?

    if indeed the land was singularly ALDI then things might be better for you

    A driver had an issue with Aldi a few months ago when his son incorrectly entered his vehicle details into the machine (and helpfully told him the next day).

    the driver returned to the store the following day and spoke to the manager. He told the driver not to worry, retain his receipt, and that if they did make contact, to return to the store with the receipt and he would help deal with it.

    To date the driver has received no contact.

    Dunno about anyone else but I ever subscribe to threads, and I've been here years. I just read threads/remember them if they are important, and later just search the forum for keywords or click on the person's username, if I want to find their thread again.
