    Read all the other recent DCBL threads of a similar nature , plenty of them on here , follow the same advice of a SAR to the DPO at the parking company , plus telling DCBL to place the matter on hold due to issuing a SAR plus you are seeking debt management advice

    The PCN is statute barred after 6 years , hence why these letters are appearing

    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se

    The advice to ignore is very outdated

    HOWEVER, DCBL have been trying to chase old parking charges and at the same time adding on fake charges. You do not owe £169, it's a fake scam charge that the courts say is abuse of process

    So does this letter give 30 days to respond and proof of their claim It should say "LETTER BEFORE CLAIM"

    If not it's just a debt collector letter and THAT can be ignored

    READ ALL ABOUT THE LATEST SCAM ...... DCBL
    DCBL (Direct Collection Bailiffs)

    If you have received a letter from these people, please carefully
    read this thread

    It is not a fine.

    The advice to ignore a PCN has not been given here since the law changed in 2012.
    Whoever told you it was okay to ignore needs educating, as do you, by reading the sticky thread for NEWBIES.

    As for DCBL, I have just posted this on another thread,

    There is no debt unless a judge so orders it.

    DCBL and DCB Legal are different parts of the same company. The former are debt collectors whereas the latter are the legal (solicitors and bailiffs) side of the operation.

    If the letter is from the debt collection arm there will be a statement saying something they are not acting as court appointed bailiffs. If that is the case then it is safe to ignore.
    If however it is from the legal side then you need to take action.


    Debt collectors have absolutely no powers other than to send poor quality bog paper. Post 4 of the NEWBIES tells you why it is safe to ignore them.

    What is the name of the PPC please?

    Has the keeper complained to the landowner yet?

    Has the keeper complained to their MP yet about this unregulated scam?

    If the keeper gets a LBC/LoC then read post 2 of the NEWBIES and come back to this thread if you need more help.

    Was this CP Plus or someone else that issued the ticket?
