    I just got a letter through for parking on range sthelens 100 parking charge from care parking for parking early December. Should i just ignore them until they get bored?
    100 is excessive.

    I didn't use the shop but always thought it was free parking for 2 hours. I was only 45 minutes.

    I've learned from reading its only for patrons but they keep this writing tiny on their sign.

    This is a scam and i don't want to pay. Are they likely to get bored if i just ignore them? I read they don't do court as its costly for them. Is this true?

    Everyone is politely asked to read up on this in the Newbies FAQ thread near the top of the forum before starting a new thread

    Go there now to learn about the game you are now caught up in

    Ignoring is not advised!

    Sounds like a plan. No evidence that the Range have allowed Care the authority to take action in their own name nor are there any court claims to support the view Care have. So ignore would be an approach.

    You will get the alternative view that you should appeal, get a POPLA code and kill it a POPLA - but that is up to you.

    You'll also get a suggestion to read the Newbies thread and get completely confused in there.

    Lol thanks. I did read the newbie thread and did get even more confused.

    A family member ignored them and hasn't heard anything for years.

    My feeling is if i interact with them then they've got me biting and it will encourage them.

    100 quid for parking ffs.

    What happened when you complained to the manager at the Range? A landowner cancellation is always the best way to get this killed off.

    Ignoring might mean you end up defending in a small claims court. That will depend on the parking company. They have six years to try court, so you take your chance if you don't do anything now, especially if you move home and don't tell the PPC.

    Most people who come here just want it to go away by the easiest means. This involves following the advice in the NEWBIES thread. It also means not revealing the driver's identity so I would advise you to edit your initial post, only ever referring to The Driver and The Keeper.

    Care Park (UK) is a very new IPC AOS member though suspect they have just moved from being a BPA member:

    If you do ignore then bear in mind though if they do decide to take you take you to court showing evidence of appealing counts in your favour.

    If it was me I would try what Fruitcake suggested and try and get a land owner cancellation so it didn't hang over me for the next 6 years.

    Please re-edit your opening post to remove anything that you don't want the parking company to know.

    Just spotted that. How confusing.

    But the one in the Range is the BPA one - also known as Anchor Security
