    How 'late' are you?
    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.

    This is an entirely unregulated industry which is scamming the public with inflated claims for minor breaches of contracts for alleged parking offences.

    Parking Eye, Smart and a smaller company have already been named and shamed, as has Gladstones Solicitors, and BW Legal, (who take hundreds of these cases to court, and nearly always lose), who have also been reported to the regulatory authority.

    The problem has become so rampant that MPs have agreed to enact a Bill to regulate these scammers. Watch the video of the Second Reading in the HofC recently.

    http://parliamentlive.tv/event/index/2f0384f2-eba5-4fff-ab07-cf24b6a22918?in=12:49:41

    and complain in the most robust terms to your MP. With a fair wind most of these companies may well be put out of business by Christmas.
    You never know how far you can go until you go too far.

    TNC do not have an appeal system because they are NOT a parking Co , they are debt collectors!

    no point in posting anything

    who was the parking Co?

    They are debt collectors, not a private parking company (PPC). Ignore them. Who is the PPC?
    PRIVATE PCN? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT TWO Clicks needed for advice:

    I fractured my arm in the 28 days appeal window and wrote to them at the beginning of this week (once my head was in gear after my accident)- there was no online facility to appeal. I am in Scotland, so Scots law prevails and in my letter(using the template from this site) did not admit liability.
    I was 5 days late replying and they have nowreceived my letter-I have a screen shot from Royal Mail that my letter was received.
    I have now received an 'Outstanding Parking Charge Notice' - dated 2nd March demanding payment today-
    and an extra charge of 76...bringing the total to 176.
    I am not sure what to do, but will do the work as you suggest.

    Please delete that post as this is not your thread. And your case is about APCOA, this one isn't!

    No need for any post at all, we have one APCOA thread today and two yesterday, read a few pages back on this parking sub-forum and find the APCOA ones. Read the advice on those.

    Saves us repeating ourselves, we don't need any more APCOA threads and nor do you, as you mention you know about the template from the NEWBIES thread. Use that, as is, & keep proof of sending it, free from the PO (NOT RECORDED DELIVERY).

    Simple.

    ''One size fits all'' I say in the NEWBIES thread...why do we get queries 'but shall I add this?'

    Answer = Nope.


    Anyway to be fair to the OP please delete your post here and I will delete mine.

    No new thread needed.

    This will give you a good idea of the chances of court action:

    C-M's post was addressed to a hijacker who has subsequently deleted their post.

    See what happens when people hijack threads... confusion.

    As long as the driver hasn't been identified in the appeal you sent, then as you are in Scotland, you are bombproof. You can safely ignore anything TNC or P4P send you.

    P4P have never conducted court proceedings in England/Wales, where it is much easier to do so than in Scotland. They aren't going to pop their court cherry in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Inverness ... or wherever you are ... hundreds of miles away from their pokey office darn sarf!

    Sleep easy.
