    Advice needed 24th Jul 18 at 1:54 PM
    Hello,

    Its my first post here :-D And we all know why it is.

    The driver of my vehicle parked on the private ground on (in)famous Aire Street, Leeds. I received PCN through the letter box few days after the event stating that there is a payment of 100 to be made. At the back the usual POFA 2012.
    Driver of my vehicle really wanted to pay by cash but the machine was saying NOT IN SERVICE. Driver was dumb enough to forget his phone and because it was Sunday he assumed its FREE... car was clocked for half an hour-ish. First appeal didn't go well. Template from parkingcowboys.co.uk/appeal-letter/ was used asking for a lot of information - none of the questions has been answered - they just responded with generic unsuccessful reply. Now there is around 2 weeks to appeal to POPLA.
    Within (only just) 28days from alleged event someone has gone to the same carpark and bought a ticket (which I now have) for the full (Sunday) day on my car registration number...
    Now how can this be approached? Out of interest I was reading the terms - I cant see the words there that one need to pay at the same day as one parked... so actually the parking was paid..

    Best regards,

    Mickey Mouse

    That your full name is shown via Dropbox.

    Remove the links immediately!

    And take the pics down and close the dB account - the links will still be viewable via cache

    @Quentin

    Oh dear, I had a brain fart with this dropbox... on the other hand even if they know my name - I am just the keeper as this is my car obviously. When I send all to POPLA tomorrow all my pictures and info will be visible in that PDF anyway or I am missing something YET AGAIN :-D

    Thx by the way for quick responding!

    It's not just the drsft popla appeal you need to be anonymous for!

    The ppcs monitor this forum.

    That's why you should remain unidentifiable to them

    They can use posts in your thread against you
