    The Manager is being fobbed off by Britannia

    BWLegal are simply a pawn in the scam.  Britannia instructed BWLegal and they can dis-instruct them as well.

    Think of the old phrase ... " The Organ Grinder and the Monkey"

    BRITANNIA IS THE ORGAN GRINDER and they do not need permission from BWLegal to cancel

    I would contact the CEO of the hotel to firstly to say that the parking company has lied to his manager and secondly, does he want your future business

    @patient_dream imo Bw Legal and all the other 'solicitor' firms that act for these parasites are much more than just pawns, they are just as bad as the parking companies, and they're clearly all in bed together. Once each claim moves to the cowboy solicitor firm the parking company washes their hands, and the cowboy solicitor firm takes up the mantle, who are just as aggressive and unreasonable as the parking company. They are two parts of the same machine.

    @chad888 I would be surprised if this does not get laughed out of court.

    When were these PCNs issued? I'll hazard a guess here... c2017? Have a look at this thread which shows what happens to well defended claims by this scamming roboclaim firm. DCB LEGAL RECORD OF PRIVATE PARKING COURT CLAIM DISCONTINUATIONS

    Whatever the case, you are very likely to defeat these bottom-dwelling scammers with the advice here.

    Can you show us the PoC?
    Good grammar adds tone and nuance to the "written" word which is normally perceived in the "spoken" word. Without good grammar, you can be perceived to be an idiot or a fool without ever uttering a sound.
