Hi All.

I had a Parking notice from CP PLUS for a parking offence in July.
After advise, i ignored the letter, and didnt respond or call them.

Yesterday, the 2nd letter has landed now with a BIG RED STAMP reading:-

PARKING CHARGE NOTICE
**FINAL REMINDER BEFORE LEGAL ACTION**

Failure to pay the full outstanding balance within 7 days of the date of this notice could result in the outstanding being registered as a debt against you in the County Court. A warrant may then be issued to baliffs to recover payment. You will also become liable for the additional fees of the County Court and the baliffs together with any legal costs and interest involved.


So, what can i expect next folks.
I cant lie, i am a little worried.

    Please remove your name and the date of the letter as it could work against you with CP

    Continue to ignore. Note they use the word 'could' and not 'will'.

    It is just a bluff to scare you into paying.

    You ignore yours, and I'll ignore mine.

    Deal? ;)

    I suggest you make another folder and file in the red section, then you could see how many different colours they try.

    They might try and send you one in green and then maybe blue.
    I all have learnt is from others on many sites.
    Seek legal help if unsure.
    Dont pay Private Parking tickets - they are mere invoices.

    PRESS THANKS

    The reason for advising you to take the indentifying info down is the only way they can enforce is if they can identify the driver.
  • Hi
    Interesting reading as I have had a similar experience with the same company.

    1st letter explaining the offence and the £80 fine reduced to £50 if I paid within a set time.
    2nd Red letter full of threats.
    I've just received my 3rd letter headed LEGAL ACTION PENDING. £80 now increased to £120 (£40 collection and admin fee).
    Legal and court costs, Solicitors, Bailiffs, County Court, Ability to obtain credit in the future. All these were mentioned in the letter.

    My reaction is no action appart from filing letter 3 with the other 2.

    Drive4it - please let us know when you get your 3rd and I will keep you informed of any further letters.

    Cheers

    It's the same with the TV lisencing people, use words to scare you but when it comes down to it they have no teeth.

    ...and I'll ignore mine. Then we'll all compare notes!!

    Had the first letter a while ago. Now got the 2nd letter from TPS stating (in RED) **FINAL REMINDER BEFORE LEGAL ACTION**.
