    PCN - Globe Protection/IG Security - Likely hood of bailiffs?

    PCN - Globe Protection/IG Security - Likely hood of bailiffs? 29th Oct 17 at 8:56 PM
    Hi,

    I've read the Newbies guide and so far have continued to ignore a penalty charge notice received by Globe Protection/IG security. ZZPS sent a letter but that was also ignored. A letter from QDR solicitors however has left my mother slightly worried about a CCJ and potentially bailiffs visiting the house.

    I did not have a ticket, however had an IG security parking badge which i Thought was valid for the car park I used. I appealed meaning I lost the ability to pay the 60 ticket and it went up to bloody 100!! It has since risen further and they now want 160, which I simply can't afford.

    I believe in my appeal, I may have insinuated I was driving the vehicle, which in hindsight is a mistake, but other than this I've not been in contact with anyone and have ignored the letters as if they haven't arrived.

    I've had a look at the BMPA stats for IG security and they've only taken 2 cases to court this year if the site is correct.

    Any advice? Do I send them anything? Whats the likely hood of bailiffs so I can reassure my mother?

    I'm sorry, I'm sure you've heard it all before but I am really appreciative.

    I doubt that it was a penalty notice

    probably a PARKING charge notice , completely different animal

    no chance of bailiffs , unless it goes to court , you (or she) loses , and you (or she) fails to pay the judgment within 28 days

    watching too much tv , yet failing to notice those enforcement officers have to have a court order

    so if it goes to court and you lose, pay up , promptly

    Sorry my mistake, it was a parking charge notice.

    Would you recommend I take any action or continue to ignore?

    you have 2 choices

    pay up in full (take action) , or IGNORE (take no action)

    if you choose IGNORE , come back if you receive an LBC or an MCOL within 6 years

    Other than complaining to the landowner and asking them to intervene and get this cancelled, there is nothing further you can do if you!!!8217;re not going to pay this (no one here is suggesting you do pay).

    You need to be alert for a Letter Before Action from the PPC or their solicitors, or a MCOL claim from the Northampton CCBC neither of which should be ignored. The PPC has 6 years in which to issue proceedings, so what they currently do in a court context cannot be assumed it will continue to be the case between now and 2023.
    We cannot provide you with a silver bullet to get you out of this. You have to be in for the long run, and need to involve yourself in research and work for you to get rid of this. It is not simple. We will help, but can't do it for you.

    I also have been issued a solicitor letter from qdr solicitors. However the car park had no signage when I parked. They still rejected my appeal. Has they erected an a4 size sheet next to my van and photographed it. Also they have spelt my name name wrongly on all correspondence. Has anybody got any additional info or input about this

    No big deal spelling your name wrong, these people
    are not exactly at the top of the intelligence list.

    What does the letter say ????
    RBS - MNBA - CAPITAL ONE - LLOYDS
