    CPM PCN at IAS stage

    CPM PCN at IAS stage 28th Dec 17 at 6:19 PM
    Hi,

    You successfully helped me get a PCN cancelled a few months ago so I'm hoping you can help me again. The situation is different as I dealt with a BPA member last time and this time it's an IPC member (CPM or Car Park Management).

    I followed all the instructions from the start and already appealed (by post as CPM don't have an online process). My appeal got rejected on the basis that my car was parked where it shouldn't have been (in a residential car park for a few minutes) and that they are under no obligation to provide the info I requested. They have images of my vehicle so that's it. It looks like those were taken by an angry resident and sent to them.

    I read that I shouldn't appeal to the IAS and instead complain to the landowner, however all the success stories I've read on the forum are about shops and supermarkets, not properties, and CPM doesn't appear in the long list of parking management companies that have previously agreed to cancel PCNs.

    My question is, should I still contact the landowner? The driver didn't know that he couldn't park there, so I don't think I have a very strong case against them. Also the rejection letter I received mentions an impact on my ability to obtain credit in the future, which is obviously quite scary!

    Thank you for your advice.

    Don!!!8217;t believe what that says. The only way credit rating is affected is if it goes to court, you lose, costs are awarded against you and you fail/refuse to pay them within the timescale directed by the judge. Then the PPC can apply for the enforcement and your credit file is annotated. All within your ultimate control.

    Not much more you can do now, but come back if the PPC (or their solicitors - likely Gladstones) issue a LBC or MCOL proceedings. The forum can help with dealing with these (see the NEWBIES FAQ sticky, post #2 if you want to do some advance reading).
    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.

    CPM are parking scammers/cowboys.

    IPC is currently the biggest UK scam, invented by
    the incompetent Gladstones Solicitors.

    No point in wasting your time with scammers

    Just wait to see how this scam develops

    Probably idiotic debt collectors trying to scam you
    WHICH YOU IGNORE

    Just see what CPM do, it will probably be via the
    very incompetent Gladstones Solicitors who are a joke

    Come back here for more help

    Some bed time reading about the joke CPM

    Hi all,
    So this is it, first letter from Gladstones informing me that if I do not pay within 14 days, I need to keep their client and their agents (DRP) updated as to my current address to "ensure that my ability to defend such action is protected".
    Your help and advice with this matter would be as always much appreciated!

    IGNORE drp but definitely ensure that these people have a current serviceable address

    come back if you get a formal LBC or an MCOL

    see post #2 of the NEWBIES FAQ sticky thread for details

    post #4 deals with debt collector letters

    the PPC has 6 years to try a court claim
    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

    So, now they are trying to paint a picture to make it the consumer's fault if they file claims to old addresses. Despicable industry and shameful robo-claim solicitors.

    I hope they are proud of how they use their law degrees.

    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.

    So I'm assuming there's no action required until the day we move to a new address? Or do I still need to confirm my current address to DRP now?
