    Paid for a ticket BUT got a charge-PARKING EYE

    Paid for a ticket BUT got a charge-PARKING EYE 24th Jan 18 at 2:01 PM
    I purchased a ticket on Parking Eye land before Christmas- and returned well within time limit. Had a letter saying I owed £60, with photo capture and that was that. However, I'd paid for a ticket and indeed still had it. The issue being that the registration number bears no resemblance to mine-not something I checked with two babies in prams, trying to get to a pantomime! It's a random series of letter and numbers so as far as I'm concerned-a fault with their machine. I appealed to them, stating this and screenshotting the ticket, but their reply was that they'd reduce the charge to £20 'as a gesture of goodwill' which I've chosen to not pay! Now had my popla details from them and again-given option to pay £20 for another 14 days. Should I appeal? Email states that the charge will go to £100 if unsuccessful. Should also say I've written a letter with some legalise in it about them not being a 'proper body' so unlwaful to charge and that clearly I'd fulfilled my end of the bargain, but not had a response to that yet...HELP!

    Read the Sticky thread for NEWBIE if you haven't already, and construct a PoPLA appeal using all the template appeal points from post 3 of the NEWBIES.
    Include every point that is available to you.

    Hopefully you didn't reveal the driver's identity like you have on here so that you can appeal as keeper. If they do know who was driving then you can't use the POFA appeal points.

    you know there was a mistake , they do , but popla will rule on facts , it might go to court , you might loose you might win , but waste a lot of your time


    I SAY THIS VERY RELUCTANTLY


    pay them £20 and be done


    if your asda is PE , boycott them , boycott any premises with PE running them

    tell your friends


    sorry , but in this case I think its best for you

    As you haven't tried POPLA yet, get the landowner to cancel it. COMPLAIN to the Store Manager.

    It!!!8217;s at the back of a hotel so it could be owned by them-the penalty ticket actually mentions the name of said hotel?

    It isn't a "penalty" ticket by the way.

    You could try the hotel first and see if they own the land and get it cancelled, Parking Eye won't be the land owners, they only (miss) manage it.
    Usually when parking companies offer a good will gesture like this they do it because they may be on a sticky wicket, and just want to get something back. They are only in existence to make money after all.
    A POPLA appeal will only work on technicalities, signage discrepancies, COP non conformance etc and will mean legwork, research and a lengthy appeal that will need running past this forum.

    You have to make the decision if it's worth the effort.

    Not a penalty. But complain to the Hotel if you were a patron.

    good luck .... and don't give in ...

    What?? Two weeks and you still haven't found the NEWBIES thread?

    Have you seen the thread index for the Parking Tickets board?
    It's currently the third thread in that list with a title of:

    **NEWBIES!! PRIVATE PARKING TICKET? OLD OR NEW? **READ THESE FAQS FIRST!** Thankyou!


    When must your PoPLA appeal be in?
    Don't miss that date too.

    ParkingEye final notice after POPLA decision in their favour. Help please?
    Hi all, Long story short, but my POPLA appeal was rejected on the grounds that although a ticket had been purchased, which displayed a random series of numbers and letters which in no way resembled the number plate of the keeper, there had been other successful transactions from the machine that day, so they will not accept that there was a glitch or malfunction. I've written to my MP who contacted them on my behalf, but they've not responded to her. I've now had the final notice to pay £100 within 14 days or threats of court, bailiffs etc (actually now have 5 days as I was waiting for my MP TO reply to the latest update). My MP has suggested I pay and try to recoup it through Resolver or the likes. Please could anyone help? I've pored over the newbies thread but in all honesty, I just get more confused and lost the more I read! Thanks in advance.

    I assume this is PARKING EYE ?

    if so its likely that they will issue court proccedings on this due to the POPLA failure

    no you should not pay it and try to get it back , you wont get any payment back once its been paid , RESOLVER wont help and it looks like your MP hasnt a clue about this, tell them to speak to Sir Greg Knight or REES MOGG

    if you wish to get rid of this , then yes you should pay

    if you are up for a fight, you send them an LBCCC rebuttal as seen in other recent threads and in the NEWBIES FAQ sticky thread post #2

    you may well win in court due to their machines accepting incorrect data from the customer/driver and the fact they accepted the revised contract by taking payment

    you will NOT get a CCJ unless it goes to court , you lost , and then you do not pay the judgment imposed by the judge within one month

    so if you lost , you pay up , IN FULL , PROMPTLY , and then there is no CCJ , no bailiffs and no trashing of your credit rating

    so think long and hard about what YOU want to do before asking for help , as the help you will get will be decided upon whether you are up for a fight , or not

    if not, nobody is interested , sorry (this is MSE, not PAY-A-SCAMMER)

    pm soolin or crabman ans ask them to merge this thread with your previous one named

    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

    The advice you need depends on some factors you havent disclosed, such as whos car park this was.
    A landowner cancellation is still possible, however depending upon the car park and/or the landowner things will need to be treated differently

    My MP has suggested I pay and try to recoup it through Resolver or the likes.
    It won't happen. Once a PPC has your money, nothing, or no one, is going to get them to give it you back.

    But we are reading this out of context, with no background detail, making it a bit dangerous for us to advise with 100% confidence.

    You seem to be dropping new threads in here every time you have a question. Regulars won't be chasing back and to through different threads to understand your issue(s), so either get a Board Guide (Crabman or soolin) to merge all relevant threads, or risk regulars not responding.
    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.

    Thanks. Yes, I do want to fight them I think. I'm incensed that they can demand £100 for something that was their fault and incredulous that POPLA could find in their favour to be honest. I'll try and find those threads, thanks. If I lost are there usually huge additional court costs as well as the fine?
