    Equita and Take formal notice

    Equita and Take formal notice 26th Mar 18 at 11:13 PM
    I am worried about giving too much detail about my situation ( because I think they are not many people in my situation) and because of the warning that Equita people are reading the posts here as well. The details below is a short and incomplete summary of my case.

    I have received from Equita a Take formal notice letter for unpaid parking charge from ParkingEye. I don't remember any unpaid parking charge ( I would normally pay them). The letter is not telling me where and when the unpaid charge come from.
    My question is should I do something or ignore it? Is this letter to be taken as first notice and should I enquire about the charges? Am I going to awake a sleeping dog?

    In the last years I have changed my address many times ( and have only recently updated DVLA). So probably that is the reason that I have not received anything previously.

    Anyway could I ask some help in private? I am not sure if that is possible in a forum environment.
    So all help is appreciated.

    To update the people who are giving me advice.

    I have received another Take Formal Notice letter from Equita. I presume similar advice (ignore) is still the case?

    Now I have received a "Final Notice" from Equita. That was only 1 week after the previous Take Formal Notice.
    Any ideas what next I can expect and when?

    Yeke, we really don't need to know about debt collector's letters.

    You know how to deal with them and that's all that matters.

    As to your question... it is futile to guess.
    Go back and re-read some of the answers you have already received.

    What was the response you received from your MP?

    Not really related to this but I have received another letter from PE directly about a parking charge from 2016. PE tells me that my address was supplied by a Credit Reference Agency (because I had not updated DVLA)

    Any idea which Credit Reference Agency is doing this or is this now common practice?
