    Scs law lbc by ukpc 9th Apr 18 at 5:28 AM
    Hi all, thanks for all your threads and peace of mind. I have read the NEWBIES thread and I understood them well most of them anyway.

    Why I am starting this thread is because I haven't read anything on hospital car parks. A LBC was received from SCS LAW on behalf of UKPC who in turn is working for a hospital. As staff of the hospital, we pay, monthly, quarterly or yearly on parking and were issued with parking permits. However, half of the time there were never enough spaces therefore parking anywhere posiible in order not to be late for shifts. Each time this happened, ukpc would issue tickets on the screen before the end of the shift. Now a letter has arrived asking for over 800.

    These cowboys rogue are so heartless, on one of the days, ticket office was shut due to staff shortage, a letter was left on the screen explaining this, but a ticket was still left anyway.
    Another occasion, a courtesy car was used and a message was left with own car reg number with explanation that the permit was forgotten in own car and car at garage for Service, a ticket was still issued anyway.
    3rd and most crazy one. The car was left on same spot for 2 days. 1st day, ticket was issued, 2nd day another ticket was issued and the 1st ticket was on the ground......... how did that happen????? Guessed the parking attendant took it off and issued a new one
    We use to laugh about these in the coffee room saying how rogue and crazy they are not knowing it's still coming to take a big chunk out of our backsides
    It was learnt that the amount of tickets they issue the more commission they get....... that is disgusting!!!!
    A complaint will be made to the trust and a reply would be drafted and posted here for a proof read and help.......
    Thanks guys!!!

    Not "Many thanks" for heaven's sake.

    It should really be a "Dear Sir....................Yours faithfully" letter.

    Does the contract give them authority to take legal action? If not, put that in as well.

    It is the contract with the landowner that needs to include the authority to take legal action, not 'a letter from the landowner'.
    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. I have gone through the contract again and it does give permission for court proceedings however, something else caught my eyes whilst reading through it again. It stated that any change to the contract is only effective if and when UKPC agrees to it in writing. So I hope this gives me leverage that the contract is no longer valid.

    Keep going ...... I hope all the notice boards in the hospital
    now have the notification that UKPC is banned from the DVLA

    No doubt UKPC are still issuing tickets in the hope they
    can still mug people.
    Why not have a box available for people to put
    their pointless tickets in, build up a collection and then
    present the box to the press.

    I wonder just how much the hospital understands the
    sheer size of the scam operated by UKPC

    So, at the moment ALL UKPC tickets are worthless and you
    are in a prime position to scupper the earnings of UKPC.

    If you have been in contact with your union, they could
    help by finding out all NHS sites that employ UKPC

    If and when the DVLA lift the ban on UKPC, this site
    will know so keep checking

    Well if you're not aware (nor I guess is your hospital) - have a read of this:

    local TV station.

    People must know that as from the 22/3/18 UKPC tickets
    are simply worthless. This is very applicable to NHS hard
    working staff who are being betrayed by the traitor
    Jeremy Hunt

    Do remember that while the NHS is happy to allow
    scammers to steal money from their staff, Hunt is living
    a ripe old life buying properties in the South to rent out

    Constant exposures regarding these hospital scammers
    is the only way forward

    And I am sure the trust was not aware of this. Or maybe they knew and just didn't care.

    Sounds like my Trust might be aware all along that UKPC are scammers but just didn't care.
