    I sent a message via The Parking Agency website as well as sending a message to the hosting service in Lithuania. Result - the website is now being 'updated'.

    So, no-one can pay their parking charge notices now!

    EDIT: Just noticed that they have a phone number where you can pay. Oh dear, that means they are prepared to take 'customers' credit card details too - what will they do with them?

    My very sincere apologies for those hoping to request off-board assistance but I am now so inundated with requests that in order to do justice to those "already in the system" I am no longer accepting PM's and am unlikely to do so for the foreseeable future (August 2016). :(

    For those seeking more detailed advice and guidance regarding small claims cases arising from private parking issues I recommend that you visit the Private Parking forum on PePiPoo.com

    I wonder if they are PCI-DSS compliant ? Doh .... silly me !

    It would be rather lovely if we could Jamie 'Aiden' given the amount of information there is about him online.

    I can see a few puzzled looks to that statement. Let me explain. I am a member of a very popular football chat site ( my username will probably give away the team to most ). One day a new user started a thread about a new football fans website service he was starting. Regulars pointed out a number of faults and flaws with it.

    The OP didn't like this and launched a reel of homophobic and threatening posts in response. He was invited publicly and via PM to apologise which he choose not to. Unfortunately for him many members of the website were IT savvy and managed to find many personal details including his name, address, facebook page, girlfriend's name, parents names and occupations and even the school he went to. His name was Jamie and for a torrid 72 hours plus he had taxis knocking at his door, along with many pizza deliveries and even a skip. I would imagine he also got fed up of taking calls on his mobile from lonely people wanting some 'company' for the night :rotfl: Not to mention the Head of his school being informed of his homophobia.

    For those with 30 minutes or so to kill can read a redacted version of the hilarious events here - http://www.northstandchat.com/showthread.php?168987-important-please-read

    Needless to say I'd suggest 'Aiden' deserves the same treatment. In fact, thinking about it, doing a 'Jamie' on all PPC owners would be rather fun.

    Someone appears to have given him the reason he can't get his coding to work ;)

    He can't even pull his website down properly - The rest of the site's still there, all he's done is change its homepage. Rest of the site can still be accessed fine by starting at any sub-page, eg:

    http://devonparkingagency.co.uk/payticket.html

    His other poorly written and scammy sites have however now vanished entirely:

    http://www.fundfeeder.co.uk/
    http://www.basecentre.co.uk/

    Edit: And 5 minutes later, the rest of the subpages on the site now also 404 - I'd guess this thread is being watched.
