    Attendance notice 1st May 18 at 12:49 PM
    Hi all, my girlfriend has just received an attendance notice from UK cps.
    The officer was at her old address (parents house) She has seen no letters previous to this, is there anything g we can do?
    She obviously very worried about the threat of a CCJ etc

    Thanks in advance

    This is the company https://ukcps.com. It's only based a short drive away from where I was issued the ticket. Makes sense as the owners live in Garforth, which is a few miles away as well.
    I'll remove his number now and edit my drop box again, if you can remover the other picture please?

    I spoke to a business owner around the area where I got my ticket and she told me that the local small business's around there sign up with UKCPS and get a fee every time they fine a car owner.
    My fine said I was parked on LARK SPEED land, which is around the corner? I was parked in front of a curry restaurant- Masala hut.

    Latest redacted copy of the notice.

    The fact that I have commented on your thread does not mean I have become your personal adviser. A long list of subsequent questions addressed for my personal attention is unlikely to receive a reply.

    This thread reminds me of a similar case that surfaced a few years ago involving a company called PS&P, based in Bolton. They styled themselves as "doorstep collection agents". Nothing ever came of their empty threats.

    But they do have a marvellous collection of doorsteps!

    Just had a look at Companies House about this company. Formed in 2016, with three active directors, one of which was only appointed last month.

    I see that their actual trading name is "Civil Enforcement Agency". I hope they're not trying to pass themselves off as some sort of government or official organization?

    There's no such company as Yorkshire Investigations Limited 2011; the 2011 is probably the website date.

    More interesting is the fact that "Yorkshire Investigations Limited" was dissolved in 2014, (actually "struck off" by Companies House ).

    For those who remember the PCN-UK saga back in 2011 and the infamous Ashford Sheridan-Wood, UK Protection Services Ltd (at the time a clamper firm) was a stable-mate of and shared the same pokey office as PCN-UK in Chorley. It also shared personnel.

    PCN-UK used to issue the PCNs and the clamper bully boys used to call on recipients to 'collect' the unpaid tickets.

    HO87 (who doesn't post now) stated that PCN-UK even took to clamping cars in public streets.

    The fact that he's charging the allowed official rate for EAs is another piece of evidence to say he's impersonating a bailiff.

    It is a Criminal Offence to impersonate an Enforcement Agent under the Tribunals Courts and Enforcement Act Part 3

    If they are an EA, is it still an offence to appear (without saying it directly) to be one when performing debt collection activities such as this?

    It must be a criminal offence, and I await the updates with interest.

    I really hope UKCPS struggle here and that they sanctioned this guy's activity.

    Would I have to visit the police station or ring 101?
    I can't thank Herbie21 enough, I'm so grateful she's taking the time to help me and hopefully others don't fall for their tactics.
    I really hope something positive comes out of this.

    BUT will they be taking any action against this parking Co , will the people responsible for bailiffs actions , take action against the collection company and the agent ?

    lets not forget the original poster (tomwig) and I suspect many others after reading various forums

    the IPC , just cancels one case because it was brought to there attention via you

    What they (ipc) expect will happen is that this will go away, nothing more will happen, and the ipc, debt collection company and the ppc will carry on as before, with the next victim being an easy pushover
