    Company Car - ZZPS letter

    Company Car - ZZPS letter 5th Mar 18 at 9:58 AM

    Firstly, I have read and re-read the newbies thread and can't find an answer. Sorry if I've missed something.

    I have a company car, and in late November received a windscreen PCN from NCP. I appealed via their online process using the company car template around 3 weeks after receiving the fine. I never heard anything since, nor did I check on their portal.

    Fast forward to February and I received a letter from ZZPS (via, and address to, my company secretary)

    Logging into NCP to pay/appeal the claim, and I get the message 'your PCN could not be found'.

    Unsure how to progress this. Any help would be massively appreciated.

    Unfortunately as a newbie I cannot include a link... but the letter is address 'the company secretary' and dated 16th February 2018 (issue date 12th November 2017).

    The NEWBIES tells you why it is safe to ignore debt crawlers.

    The most important thing is to ensure your company does not pay these scammers, and then try to charge you. You should therefore tell the powers that be not to do this as neither they or you have any liability to pay this scam.

    You should complain to your MP about this scam, and also show the following to your company.

    These are some of the comments made by the MPs in Parliament concerning the unregulated parking industry (Feb 2018):

    ''Rip-offs from car park Cowboys must stop''; unfair treatment; signage deliberately confusing to ensure a PCN is issued; ''years of abuse by rogue parking companies''; bloodsuckers; ''the current system of regulation is hopeless, like putting Dracula in charge of the blood-bank''; extortionate fines; rogue operators; ''sense of injustice''; unfair charges and notices; wilfully misleading; signage is a deliberate act to deceive or mislead; ''confusing signs are often deliberate, to trap innocent drivers''; unreasonable; a curse; harassing; operating in a disgusting way; appeals service is no guarantee of a fair hearing; loathed; outrageous scam; dodgy practice; outrageous abuse; unscrupulous practices; ''the British Parking Association is as much use as a multi-storey car park in the Gobi desert''; and finally, by way of unanimous conclusion: ''we need to crack down on these rogue companies. They are an absolute disgrace to this country. Ordinary motorists and ordinary residents should not have to put up with this''.

    These are the exact words used, so you should quote them to your MP in a complaint and ask him/her to contact Sir Greg Knight MP if he wants further information about this scam.
