    VCS PCN advice? 14th Apr 18 at 12:19 PM
    I sent the template from the page below for my company lease car which was parked in a car park (private land) for over the 180mins limit...

    http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5703794

    I have now had the reply below, can anyone kindly help with offering advice on a reply, much appreciated...

    We refer to correspondence received from you concerning the above numbered Charge Notice.
    We note the comments you have made regarding the Protection Of Freedoms Act (POFA) 2012 on the Notice issued to you; however we have not cited POFA 2012.
    Please note that responsibility for this Charge lies with the driver of the vehicle at the time the parking contravention was observed. However, we are unable to ascertain who the driver was on the date in question from the information given within your appeal.
    In order for us to process your appeal correctly, please follow the instructions below:
    1. Notify the driver of the vehicle that they will need to appeal to us directly, including their FULL NAME (Forename and Surname) and a valid FULL SERVICEABLE ADDRESS within 14 days.
    2. If you are representing the driver we require a signed and dated statement from the driver of the vehicle confirming that you are authorised to appeal on his/her behalf; this needs to be an original signature and not a photocopy or a stamp. The statement MUST contain the drivers FULL NAME (Forename and Surname) and a valid FULL SERVICEABLE ADDRESS.
    Please ensure that correspondence is submitted through the portal www.myparkingcharge.co.uk in order to correctly adhere with the appeals process.
    OR
    3. Pay the PCN. Payments can be made online at www.myparkingcharge.co.uk by following the links for "Pay Now", It is your responsibility to ensure that payment is received within our office by the date specified.
    As a gesture of goodwill we have placed the charge on hold for an additional period of 14 Days to enable one of the above actions to be complied with.
    We are willing to re-offer you the original discounted charge of 60 as full and final settlement of this Notice, if payment is received within our office on or before the 27th April 2018.
    If payment is not received by this date, the amount payable will revert to 100. Failure to pay this charge within the stated times, may result in Debt Recovery Action being taken and further costs up to an additional 60 being incurred.
    Yours sincerely,
    Appeals Administration Team CENTRAL PROCESSING OFFICE

    all smoke and mirrors by an IPC company

    the fact is they have your details and your appeal, so nothing else you can do

    if they issue a court claim within 6 years , come back

    meanwhile , make sure the lease company know the details and not tp pay it but to forward any documents they receive to you

    also inform them that as keeper/lessee you have appealed this charge and so they are absolved under POFA2012, but that if they receive any papers they should follow the BVRLA guidelines and name the lessee/keeper (you) to ensure they have no liability under POFA2012

    This is an entirely unregulated industry which is scamming the public with inflated claims for minor breaches of contracts for alleged parking offences, aided and abetted by a handful of low-rent solicitors.

    Parking Eye, CPM, Smart, and another company have already been named and shamed, as has Gladstones Solicitors, and BW Legal, (these two law firms take hundreds of these cases to court each year). They lose most of them, and have been reported to the regulatory authority by an M.P. for unprofessional conduct

    Hospital car parks and residential complex tickets have been especially mentioned.

    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.

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