    READ THIS BEFORE YOU START A NEW THREAD ABOUT ZZPS or DEBT RECOVERY PLUS! 10th Aug 14 at 1:03 AM
    Please...please... NO NEW THREADS ABOUT ZZPS or DEBT RECOVERY PLUS. NOOOOO!

    Yes we know you got a letter like this one...or a Debt Recovery Plus or Zenith version (yawn):

    [B]...but no we do not need any new threads about it as we can't say the same thing again and again without one of us self-combusting!

    You need NO HELP ignoring debt collector letters so do not respond if any poster with less than 1000 posts, contacts you by pm offering to 'help' off-forum. We do not do that and the person could be anyone/from the dark side.

    Like all debt collector letter chains - don't start a new thread as these have been discussed to death every week of every month for about a decade. NOT JOKING - ABOUT A DECADE AND NOTHING HAS CHANGED IF YOU'VE MISSED THE APPEAL WINDOW YOU ARE LIKELY TO GET THESE LETTERS.

    Not saying for a minute the forum can't help you because it can if you simply READ OTHER THREADS...please...but don't start your own.

    Just read post #4 of the Newbies thread which is all about 'ignore the debt collectors' stage. Boring boring boring.

    And if you are unconvinced and still itching to ring the idiots, DON'T. DO NOT RING THEM.

    Search this forum for the word...'Debt Recovery Plus' or 'Zenith' or 'ZZPS'...(or the name of the debt collector if different) read all the other boring threads...and rinse and repeat and read more. But spare us the new thread please.

    New threads about debt collectors clog up what is a parking forum, not a 'oh look I have got the same debt collector letters...so have I...so have I...now what do I do' forum.

    There are only so many times we can type the word 'ignore' and post #4 of the Newbies top thread already covers your options...ignore, basically! Any more new threads about the same old thing is pointless.

    Thankyou - Happy reading & collecting of the letters. It is amusing when you know what to expect and that it is all hot air!



    Finally, 4 important things:

    1. - if your PPC is a litigious one like ParkingEye or Excel, then you should not ignore the PPC (ignore DRP though).

    2. - if you move house within 6 years, tell the PPC and debt collector by letter, giving them your new address as registered keeper and update your V5 with the DVLA, not just your driving licence address. You do not want to MISS an actual court claim!

    3. - if you get a court claim from the parking firm (cannot come from a debt collector!), do not panic, Do NOT ignore court papers!! Start a new thread if you need to actually defend one of these but not to tell us about debt collector drivel.

    4. Debt collectors like Debt Recovery Plus or ZZPS or TNC cannot litigate.

    Ignore debt collectors.

    Certainly never pay any company to pointlessly reply to a PPC or debt collector (check reviews on Trust pilot first...before using any company for anything).
