    Met parking - additional point? 7th Jul 18 at 4:48 PM
    Dealing with these scammers. The letter says 90 minutes at the top and 30 in the body of the letter. Worth adding to the standard F Off, I mean appeal?

    Spoke to Macdonalds and they claim that its not their car park when it's their cafe. Typical clueless manager couldn't care less and is either uninterested or a liar.

    No.

    Send the standard blue text appeal without change.

    Why do you think adding anything will make any difference?

    There is no money in accepting appeals.

    Thanks Keith. I think I just needed somebody to tell me to behave and not wind the scammers up for the sake of it.

    I'll just stick to C-M's winning formula.

    They won't see a penny from the RK:I'll make sure of that.

    Aren't you in Scotland?
    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.

    I am, but the RK and incident are in England.

    I appreciate your comment anyway.

    manager couldn't care less and is either uninterested or a liar.

    Write that on their Facebook page.

    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.
