    Ethical Parking Management 17th May 18 at 4:55 PM
    Hi, I’m new to this and have read through all the posts and have a query please, I like most have had letters from ZZPS for 2 ‘penalties’ who have now passed my case to QDS for “legal action” I know the advice is to ignore, which I am but I was trying to find the chances of the parking company actually taking legal action bit as advised on one of the threads but when i searched it said the page didn’t exist! The company is Ethical Parking Management. Thanks in advance for any help.

    check the what was BMPA website , that is where any data was stored, its called something like PADI now

    post #4 of the NEWBIES FAQ sticky thread deals with debt collectors like ZZPS , and post #2 deals with any LBC or MCOL letters
    Newbies !!
    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se

    no idea, its not my site , but it sounds like they dont bother, or they use a different "handle" as the reference for the named ppc (in this case Ethical)

    Nowt to worry about but come back if they later try a claim.

    Yes they have 6 years, like any debt.

    Surely all you have is the usual dross from QDR:

    All you needed to do was get the acronym right and search the forum for it! LOADS of threads.

    Unethical in the extreme
    Ethical Parking Management have a history of being dishonest and telling lies, and of acting very unethically indeed. Have a look at ethicalparkingmanagement dot co dot uk for details (sorrry, the site won't let me post a real address).

    EPM make money by offering to manage companies' car parking on *very* favourable terms, even to the point where they'll run the whole operation for free. They then make money from all the fines they issue.

    Dodgy dealings, economy with the truth, free car park management, and reliance on the issuing of 'fines' to make their money is not restricted to Ethical.

    The whole rotten industry works on exactly the same basis!
    Please note, we are not a legal, residential or credit advice forum, rather one that helps motorists fight private parking charges, primarily at the 'front-end' of the process.

    Same as all the rest; the entire industry offering 'parking management for free' (like a protection racket, ''we'll look after your land, guv'') should be illegal.

    The Deep
    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.

    http://parliamentlive.tv/event/index/2f0384f2-eba5-4fff-ab07-cf24b6a22918?in=12:49:41

    and complain in the most robust terms to your MP. With a fair wind they will be out of business by Christmas.
