    Drp letter with no ntk received

    Drp letter with no ntk received 1st May 18 at 2:45 PM
    Good afternoon.

    Today I received a letter from drp working on behalf of smart parking. My car is registered at my previous address although I own both and collect mail from each property nearly every day, according to smart they sent the ntk to my previous address which they Haven nor did they send up a follow up letter, due to this and drp now being involved my right to appeal seems to have vanished, I've read the newbie section, so firstly a firm abrupt email will be sent to drp telling them to whistle and to refer back their client. I'm stuck on how to appeal now. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks
    Dasrokin.

    Do you know what, I am fed up with Smart Parking threads where it appears that Smart have gone straight to DRPlus stage. This needs to stop.

    Search the forum for Smart DRPlus and then (secondly, separate search) Smart DRP and Smart debt collection and please reply showing us links to ALL the same threads you find, there are literally dozens.

    Then, email Steve Clark of the BPA and point him to this thread, with all the links you find, showing there is a huge issue that the BPA need to investigate.

    I am really angry about this, you are one of dozens and you can collate the proof!

    How do I do this, Coupon-mad? Is there a way of copying a list of links, or have I got to go into each thread and copy its address separately??

    @matherine

    You need to start your own thread to discuss your PCN

    Hijacking others like this (you have also posted about this in another thread) just confuses!

    I don't actually want to discuss my PCN! I gave the details on another thread that was trying to compile a list of like cases - mine is a like case. I posted on here because Coupon-mad linked to here suggesting that someone tackle making a list of like cases.
    It always makes me laugh on threads like this how quickly it turns into an argument, but I can totally see why now
    Was going to try and tackle a complaint on behalf of everyone but maybe you will instead?

    Please Quentin, read what my post was actually about. The only advice I've asked for is details on how to compile a list of similar complaints as suggested by Coupon-mad. Coupon-mad seemed to be saying that someone ought to complain on behalf of everyone to Steve Clark at the BPA rather than just mentioning your own case. I thought I would have a go at that as it seems like a good idea, but couldn't see how to do it without hours of sifting through everyone's cases to see which ones were like mine.
    I'm sure you do a grand job on here and put in a lot of time, but really that was a very snippy reply and you're not actually reading what I was asking. I do not need any more advice on my own case at the moment, as I used the excellent advice already available on here, but felt that perhaps someone should advertise the fact that Smart Parking seem to be developing a habit of not sending out any of the letters they should have before going to the debt collectors. And then I thought well really why not me, it wouldn't kill me to write the email. Now I'm leaning more towards oh god life's too short for this, would be less painful to cough up my fine and never read this kind of stuff again. I am NOT hijacking someone else's thread! I am asking a question relevant to the advice offered on that thread by Coupon-mad! Would be a bit strange to bung it on a new thread where it made no sense at all. Again - I urge you - please read what I actually asked before effectively telling me to shut up and get off.
    Still think it's a great idea to collate similar cases and tell this Clarke bloke, but I don't think it will be me doing it...

    Well done for being that person and doing it, a very good start!

    Very good. However you seem to have missed the basic posting guide that you clearly confirmed having read and understood as part of your signup.

    Pay special attention to the bit about not hijacking other people's threads..!

    This is also because your idea is good and really does merit discussion on its own, away from individual cases.

    Pogofish, it wasn't my idea. It was Coupon-mad's idea. I posted here because this is where he/she pointed me when he/she told me about their idea, and I wanted to ask for advice on quick ways of achieving it. I really resent being told I have hijacked a thread when I asked a question on it.
    I get the impression some people on here are so quick to throw their weight around they don't actually read what's going on - go on, have a little look back. Coupon-mad suggested it.

    Round of applause for starting the ball rolling!

    OK, so that's good and well done

    As c-m knows, I am happy to do the same but my reservation
    is that Steve Clark is simply a puppet in a totally defunct
    organisation not fit for purpose
