    PCN Notice letters not received from U.K. CPM

    PCN Notice letters not received from U.K. CPM 10th Aug 18 at 4:58 PM
    Hi there, after reading through the newbies section Iím sure that my case doesnít come up so please accept my apologies if it does and my eyesight is letting me down.

    I parked my car at a Uk CPM ran car park back in April and a few months later I suddenly received a letter from their debt collectors. After speaking with the debt collectors I got them to send me through a picture of my parking and whilst I donít deny that I was parked outside a poorly marked bay due to that being the only way to park at the time. What I do deny is receiving the two letters previous to the debt collectors asking me to pay £60 within 14 days and then £100. I have confirmed with UK CPM that they donít send their mail recorded delivery but do record that it was sent. My issue now is why should I accept their word that these letters were sent? And why should I pay £100 more for the fine than what I shouldíve paid if they sent the original letter.

    Further to this, I have explained to them time and time again how two friends parked in the same car park and received PCNs but one received the initial letter and paid £60 and the other received only the second letter stating they were late with payment and have to pay £100. He is currently disputing this but I need some advice as IAS appeals have come back to my enquiry about whether I could raise a non standard appeal to state that U.K. CPM have proof they sent the letters so I have no leg to stand on.
    What do I do from here as Iím sure this wouldnít stand up in court! Even if I had received the 2nd letter and not the 1st letter I would still feel obliged to refuse this penalty charge.

    Again, apologies if this is going over old ground but as you can imagine, being bombarded by debt collection letters is quite stressful!

    Everyone is politely asked not to start a new thread until after reading up on this in the newbies faq thread near the top of the forum

    Go there now to learn about the game you are now caught up in

    Shame you admitted to being the driver

    You will see appeals to IAS are futile

    You are in the debt collectors/wait and see stage

    Ignore everything except a LBCCA or court correspondence.

    If that turns up come back to the FAQ for advice on how to defend a court claim

    They have 6 years to commence legal proceedings against you

    Thank you very much. And apologies for the bad forum etiquette. I!!!8217;ve never posted on a forum before so the terms are all new to me.
    The advice is really appreciated though.

    Thank you
