    Hi everyone. I've ignored all correspondence sent to me from UK CPS and finally they've sent me a document that looks as if it's from a County Court ordering me to pay. I've had these tickets from private parking firms before and nothing has ever come of them as I thought they weren't enforcable. Any advice please?

    Important Letter 1:

    Thanks

    Yeah I read pretty much all of it, sorry made a seperate thread now.
  • Hi all,
    Read the threads but unsure if any apply to my quandary so here goes...I parked my car in a car park in Huddersfield at 9.40pm on Saturday night. I looked at the sign but it just said 'all day parking £4.00' As Huddersfield is generally free parking after 6, the machine to pay was in total darkness and there was no sign on the contrary I parked without a ticket.
    I arrived back at my car at 12.30am (I was designated driver) to find a UK CPS Ltd fine ticket issued at 12.22am. Do I have to pay this?? Can I appeal?? Should I appeal or ignore it??
    Thanks for any help or advice
    :D
  • Sorry guys, new so messed up first post!! LOL...I've now created a new thread :(

    Hello after some good advice as to best proceed with challengeing this scam company.
    Back in November 2013 we parked in forbury retail car park READING , and used decathlon for our shopping business , were I bought my wife a set of ski boots , after waiting our turn and subsequently getting fitted into a variety of different boots , we came to a decision and purchased some ski boot , which also had to be heat moulded. Needless to say this took some while.
    My wife is also type 1 diabetic and at the end of our shop felt unwell ( due to an oncoming hypo ) so we walked from the shop across to macdonalds on the other side of the car park so as to get her something to eat .
    We left the business park , none the wiser that apparently we had been issued a ticket ????

    The first we knew of this was 20th February 2014 ????

    We're I received a letter for payment from a debt collection company called debt recovery plus acting on behalf of a company called Highveiw Parking Ltd ?
    I called the debt collection company as I had received no ticket , no correspondence outlining the fact that I had not paid ?? Of course why would I , when I had no clue a ticket had been issued?
    According to the debt collection company , my ticket had been issued electronically to them and it was for staying longer than 2 hrs .... "Would I like to pay the £145 today" she asked
    " er no " I replied
    " you had better get some legal advice then " was debt recovery plus's answer.
    I will contest this from ever corner , as i think it's absolutely scandalous as we didn't even leave to shop else where , I do accept we were a long while , but some things take time ?
    Rather than rant on further , has anyone advice or experience of dealing with these sharks ?

    Why not just read the sticky threads here where all this is covered...? Kind of surprised at all the new threads this week where no-one has read these...sigh:

    Sticky: NEWBIES!! PRIVATE PARKING TICKET? EVEN AN OLD ONE? ***READ THIS FIRST*** Thankyou!

    and

    Sticky: Successful complaints about private parking tickets - how to get them cancelled!

    Baldyman68 you added to an ANCIENT archive thread...look at the current forum, new posts & advice every day, sticky info there at the top all along.

    :)



    EDITED FOR NEW READERS (2016)


    DO NOT EVEN CONTINUE READING - THIS IS A 2011/2014 THREAD - IT IS OUT OF DATE IN ADVICE.



    More importantly if you have a UKCPS new PCN now, they are banned from getting DVLA data so do not appeal and no letters can be sent (at the time of writing this at the end of 2016).



    DO NOT REPLY HERE, GO TO PAGE ONE AND READ THE NEWBIES THREAD AND IF YOU STILL HAVE QUESTIONS YOU WILL THEN BE ON PAGE ONE AND CAN START A NEW THREAD

    This thread is ancient - use the forum jump on the right and read the current advice instead!


    YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!
    PRIVATE 'PCN'? DON'T PAY BUT DON'T IGNORE IT (except N.Ireland).

    Advice is to do two things and not do one thing
    1) read the Newbie thread which talks you through the process
    2) start your own new thread if you have any questions to ask further to what you learn when you have read this thread, and re read post 1 at least twice more
    3) don't contact the parking company at this stage wait for Notoce to Keeper.
