County Court Business Centre

Hey guys, hope youre all well during this difficult time.
Just seeking for some advice, long story short. My OH has received a County Court Business Centre. The letter was addressed to an old address she had previously lived in. She has since moved twice. We have also received another letter from dcblegal who are acting on behalf of walton wilkins which was dated back in october. The only problem is, we dont know when this incident was, and the car that they have stated in the letter has been sold during march but the car had not been in use a year prior to this as the OH was pregnant.

Could anyone give us advice on what the next step we should take?  
DCBlegal dated the letter back in 12th Oct 2020 - for amount £160
County Court Business Centre is dated 14th Dec 2020 - for amount £282.83
These are the only 2 letters we have had forwarded to her but as stated, she has moved twice since from that address. She hasnt lived there since 2017. The letter DCBlegal sent us also doesnt state where and when it happened. 

Many thanks for your time in reading this post,

    One thing is certain, she won't have received a County Court Business Centre.    :)

    Are you really saying that your OH has received a Claim Form from the County Court Business Centre in Northampton?

    If so, then please tell us the Issue Date on that County Court Claim Form.

    She must do the AOS online today if possible , nothing else on MCOL , just acknowledge receipt of the claim pack

    She must email a SAR to PPL WW to the DPO , attaching a copy of the claim form as proof of I D under the GDPR law , to obtain all the data and documents and pictures etc , the stuff she is missing

    Then start drafting her defence by using the template defence by coupon mad from the newbies FAQ sticky thread near the top of the forum , I suggest you both read it carefully , on a laptop ,, not on a phone

    Post the paragraphs 2 & 3 on here after they have been altered to suit
    Newbies !!

    Yes we received a claim form from the county court. The letter from the county court was issued on the 14th December. Thanks for correcting. :)

    Can you explain this please?  Firstly that is incorrect grammar and secondly why might it not have been you that was in possession of the car?  If you sold it, the DVLA should be able to tell you what date you transferred the car to the new keeper.

    With a Claim Issue Date of 14th December, you have until Monday 4th January to file an Acknowledgment of Service, but there is nothing to be gained by delaying it. 
    To file an AoS, follow the guidance in the Dropbox file linked from the second post in the NEWBIES thread.

    Having filed an AoS, you have until 4pm on Monday 18th January 2021 to file your Defence.
    That's over two weeks away. Plenty of time to produce a Defence, but please don't leave it to the last minute.
    To create a Defence, and then file a Defence by email, look again at the second post on the NEWBIES thread - immediately following where you found the Acknowledgment of Service instructions.
    Don't miss the deadline for filing an Acknowledgment of Service, nor that for filing a Defence.

    Of course, everywhere I have said 'you' or 'your' I mean the named Defendant.

    Sounds like a lot she has to go through...

    But you know that already. Please re-read your other thread before asking further questions.

    Irrelevant , it's a live court claim from the central processing office for the government , whether you like it or not , and I stand by my advice , ignore it if you want her to have a CCJ for 6 years !!

    It is definitely a lot to go through

    Theyve basically just sent us a letter asking for money..
    That sentence sums up the whole raison d'être, not just of the unregulated 'debt recovery'/roboclaim legal firms underclass who cling limpet-like to this sector, but of the entire industry. 

    We can all see that the aim, in most cases with any IPC or BPA AOS member, has nothing to do with 'parking management' at all.

    I just read some bumf on a very large parking firm's website about how to set out traffic flow lines and maximise parking bays, even though that firm does nothing of the sort.  They simply use ANPR to churn out PCN after PCN - even to disabled people who are legally entitled to more time - and do nothing useful whatsoever. 

    Yet they fool retailers into believing that they are some sort of 'parking management specialists' and that they 'need' this technology to count footfall, and for 'security' and all sorts of other claptrap.  More fool the Supermarkets and Hospitals who fall for this cynical moneymaking model, yet often make little or nothing from it themselves whilst the PPCs make tens of millions.

    The parking industry, the APAs who prop them up and the debt recovery impersonators who bump up the money and drive these cases to court (and sit on the APA boards, pulling the strings) should be very ashamed.  If they are not, then they have no social conscience.  Not a good place to be and one day, what goes around, will come around.  Happy New Year, parking industry...
    PRIVATE 'PCN'? DON'T PAY BUT DON'T IGNORE IT (except N.Ireland).

    Have you read the newbies?  Have you complained to your MP?  Have you complained to the landowner?  Have you read anything about this scam elsewhere?
