Euro Car Parks PCN - Set My Mind At Rest Please

Good evening

Having been through all of the relevant steps with landowner, EuroCar parks and POPLA the parking charge still stands for an incorrect REG number entered into parking machine. 

For some time Debt Recovery Plus have been chasing for payment. DRP have sent "TERMINAL NOTICE - PRE-LEGAL ACTION" on two occasions now, both identical letters dated a couple of months apart. 

Can you comment around thee DRP letter stating we require "immediate action" as legal proceedings are "IMMINENT".

From my reading here, everyone that's got to this stage with Euro Car Parks, the letter before court would not come from debt recovery, is that the case? 

Is there a risk of a CCJ?

Any advice much appreciated.

    No risk of a CCJ unless it goes to Court and you lose  AND then do not pay in time. People who follow the advice of the Forum do not usually lose, and even if they do it would usually be for less than the inflated claim.

    The letter you quote is from powerless DRP and can be ignored. I suspect they are desperate to get something out of this because they know they would be on a sticky wicket in Court.

    This sounds like a minor keying error, and if so you should have been offered a much lower payment, at worst. 

    DO not ignore real Letter before Claim ( 30 days to respond), or Official Court documents

    What didn't you understand in that ECP/DRP thread you started last November?

    Same as here...please read and search:

    As for the CCJ question, this is already answered in the second post of the NEWBIES thread.  Please read it for reassurance and to prepare with confidence for the tedium of a court claim.

    Easy stuff.  A court claim is not a CCJ
    PRIVATE 'PCN'? DON'T PAY BUT DON'T IGNORE IT (except N.Ireland).
