    BW legal - Final notice letter

    BW legal - Final notice letter 15th Jun 17 at 3:35 PM
    I am looking for some advice. On 21/04/17 I received a letter from BW Legal stating they had been instructed by Vehicle Control services in relation to an unpaid PCN. The contravention description states that the vehicle was parked without displaying a valid ticket.

    The location stated is a place where I have only ever parked once before and after a quick dig around in my car I actually found the ticket I had purchased on the date in question. The confusing thing is there was never any ticket issued to my windscreen, my home address and there are no cameras in the location in question as I have since done a few drive by's. I have not received any correspondence from VCS themselves in relation to any ticket and the first I have heard is from BW Legal so to say I am confused is abit of an understatement!

    Maybe naively I ignored the letter and have now recieved a final notice letter dated 22/05/17 and so I am seeking advice as to the best course of action. The final notice letter requests a balance of 160.00, threatens CCJ's and makes reference to ParkingEye Limited v Beavis and so I am feeling a little worried. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

    the correect advice is that you follow thge same path as the dozens and dozens of other members here before you, and do the same as they did

    namely, you reply to B W LEGAL and refute all the claims they are making

    member GAN on pepipoo wrote a lot of simple rebuttal letters for this and these have been reproduced on here dozens of times, so just find them and do what the other members have already done

    but bear in mind that you may still receive an MCOL from Northampton

    the PPC has 6 years to pursue it through the courts
    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

    All anyone here needs to do, is search the forum...everything has been said, done, drafted and is there to copy from already.
    PRIVATE PCN? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT TWO Clicks needed for advice:
    Top of the page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.
