UKPC/DCB Legal Court Date sent

Have followed the Newbie thread to now and have got to the stage of receiving a court date. Used the template defence.

The alleged offence by UKPC (by DCB legal) is for 'leaving site' in 2019. 

What do I need to include in my witness statement? Any good examples for similar issues? Tried to find the ones listed in the newbie thread but couldn't get on to them 

Hoping it will be discontinued like the other DCB legal ones in recent threads

    Why can't you "get to them"? What happens when you click on the user name with @symbol and go to their profile, then click on their threads?
  • Which court please ?

    The "leaving site" scam is normal for UKPC ?

    DCBL LOVE this rubbish, that's why they discontinue at the last minute because Judges will spank them for wasting the courts time

    Be patient, ignore all discount offers from DCBL on their mug hunting trip

    Their claim is just laughable together with their fake add-ons

    The DCBL game is a great game to play .... enjoy
  • Just had an email with notice of discontinuation. Glad I waited it out and let these mugs do their normal thing

    Please note, we are not a legal advice forum. I personally don't get involved in critiquing court case Defences/Witness Statements, so unable to help on that front. Please don't ask. .

    A favour PLEASE if you want this 'litigation incentivised' aggressive model to be stopped:

    https://committees.parliament.uk/committee/102/justice-committee/news/198166/new-inquiry-justice-committee-launches-new-inquiry-on-the-work-of-the-county-court-amid-capacity-and-resource-concerns/

    They extended the deadline until January:

    https://committees.parliament.uk/work/7972/work-of-the-county-court/

    I've been posting a lot about it on threads to encourage victims to tell the Justice Committee that consumers need a bespoke 'parking pre-action protocol' designed to keep cases out of court.

    Your case has ruined your peace of mind for ages, only for DCB Legal to walk away when you didn't blink.

    This treatment of motorists should be illegal.

    The 'debt claims pre-action protocol' is not fit for purpose for these cases.  OBJECT to this and ask the Committee to insist on a proper ADR and 'private parking protocol' to resolve disputes and expose the worst scam PCNs out of court. 

    The reply form intrusively asks victims to tell some random thug/rogue ex-clampers all about their household and income/financial position, assumes there is a 'debt' owed under a credit agreement - which there isn't - and the debt claims procedure doesn't match the DLUHC's incoming Code of Practice.

    This inquiry is currently accepting evidence

    The committee wants to hear your views. We welcome submissions from anyone with answers to the questions in the call for evidence. You can submit evidence until Wednesday 17 January 2024.

  • They are abusing the court system to intimidate and try to extract money with menaces?
