Hi
I have received not one but 3 letters from DCBL. The letter is entitled 'Notice of Debt Recovery'
Each letter shows 3 different dates for the same car park with each amount being £100 plus fees total of £160.
I received all three letter on the same day and this is the first time I have heard anything about it. I received no windscreen tickets or previous letters.
These letters were forwarded from my previous address. I had apparently not had my address changed with DVLA at the time they checked.
I am inclined to just call them and say the person does not live at this address.
Any advice please?
Many thanks

    nope

    you should do 2 things

    email a SAR to the DPO at the parking company , to get all your data , and issue a data rectification notice to that same DPO to get your details updated and old address erased

    then write to DCBL telling them to place it on hold pending debt management advice


    see post #2 and post #5 of the newbies sticky thread for explanations

    DCBL will not update your address , even when instructed by the parking firm.

    Go back to that screen where you found the New Thread button earlier.

    The thread you are looking for is one of the first four threads - it has the word NEWBIES in its title.

    You are being asked to read the second and fifth posts in that thread.

    Is this about really old tickets, circa 5 years old?
