    I can't understand why anyone would consider paying this ridiculous made up scam charge!

    If leaving site is so detrimental to the profitability of this site why did the scammers muppet, watch you do it, let you do it, and not stop you?

    One reason only to scam you of cash!

    Have a chuckle at this, one PPC did try court and in return was sent off with their tail between their legs:

    And a toothbrush up their jacksie!

    No 'leaving the site' case has ever been chanced in the county court (to our knowledge) anywhere in the country since.

    Please don't run away scared and capitulate now - you're so near to winning this!
    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.

    There you go. You didn't wobble and eventually got them to capitulate. Well done you,

    well done .....

    so


    after all this have you seen the MP debate ?

    https://hansard.parliament.uk/commons/2018-02-02/debates/CC84AF5E-AC6E-4E14-81B1-066E6A892807/Parking(CodeOfPractice)Bill


    and read some of the comments ?


    ''Rip-offs from car park Cowboys must stop''; unfair treatment; signage deliberately confusing to ensure a PCN is issued; ''years of abuse by rogue parking companies''; bloodsuckers; ''the current system of regulation is hopeless, like putting Dracula in charge of the blood-bank''; extortionate fines; rogue operators; ''sense of injustice''; unfair charges and notices; wilfully misleading; signage is a deliberate act to deceive or mislead; ''confusing signs are often deliberate, to trap innocent drivers''; unreasonable; a curse; harassing; operating in a disgusting way; appeals service is no guarantee of a fair hearing; loathed; outrageous scam; dodgy practice; outrageous abuse; unscrupulous practices; ''the British Parking Association is as much use as a multi-storey car park in the Gobi desert''; and finally, by way of unanimous conclusion: ''we need to crack down on these rogue companies. They are an absolute disgrace to this country. Ordinary motorists and ordinary residents should not have to put up with this''.

    These are the exact words used, so you should quote them to your MP in a complaint and ask him/her to contact Sir Greg Knight MP if he wants further information about this scam.

    and complained re your treatment ?
