    Now a DRP has been sent for £160 stating if itís not payed it will be court action
    Advice is needed please. Isnít 4.58am a bit early to be giving out parking tickets .

    Ignore the debt collector threat letters but do file them away safely,may come in handy later. Do react if you get a LBA/LBC/LBCC or court papers.

    Can anyone tell me what happens after you ignore the debt collectors letters do you automatically get a court summons?

    You don't get a summons because this isn't criminal law, but you might get a Letter Before Action for the Small Claims Court.

    The Keeper should have appealed the PCN as the NEWBIES has been telling people to do since 2013. Since the appeal deadline has now passed, The Keeper is in ignore mode unless they get a LBA/MCOL.

    Please change http to hxxp when you post it as you can only post dead links. Someone here will change it back to a live link so it can be viewed.

    Letter before Action

    I knew what they meant anyway but, without being rude, it, literally, took me 5 seconds to find the answer on Google.

    After 20 posts I am still in the dark. Why did you get a PCN. Were you a resident? If so were you a leaseholder, lodger, visitor or tenant?

    This thread is becoming bogged down in trivia. Does it really matter where OP obtained false information, Facebook, Mumsnet, et al are full of it. Please to not distract OP any further.

    OP, please reply to post 20.

    Are you sure it is a different debt collector?

    Doesn't it say at the bottom right of that letter that Zenith is a trading name of DRP?

    Anyway, no-one is interested in debt collector's letters.

    People really need to read letters comprehensively.

    It's a bit like not fully reading signage at privately operated car parks! So many fall foul.
    Please note, we are not a legal, residential or credit advice forum, rather one that helps motorists fight private parking charges, primarily at the 'front-end' of the process.

    post #29 also gave you your answer months ago
    Newbies !!
    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se

    You need to be a little less cryptic.
