    No POPLA Reference Code provided 29th Dec 19 at 8:09 PM
    Hoping someone can help. I received a rejection letter from a PPC in response to the template appeal letter for BPA and IPC members I recently sent.

    However I have just noticed that the rejection letter I received does not include a POPLA Reference Code in the space provided for one in their letter.

    In this letter, dated 02/12/2019, it states that “the appeal must be received by POPLA within 28 days from the date of this response”. I make this 30 Dec 2019 (tomorrow ).

    I know I have cut this very fine, but does anyone know what should I do?

    Many thanks in advance.

    The search was to find past examples of this PPCs failure to issue POPLA codes not for an easy copy and paste template. Quote the incidences in your own complaint.

    Surely you don't need to copy someone else's words?
    Please note, we are not a legal advice forum. I personally don't get involved in critiquing court case Defences/Witness Statements, so unable to help on that front. Please don't ask.

    Just search the forum for Steve Clark and email him, in your own words, attaching a copy of the rejection letter with the blank space where he POPLA code is meant to be.

    Debt Recovery Plus
    Some advice please.
    I have just received a letter (dated 7.1.2020 but only received yesterday 14.1.2020) to pay the parking charge, now £149, by 21.1.2020. Letter states if I don't pay DRP will recommend to their client (the creditor: PTL) that they take court action against me.

    With this, I was about to follow up with my complaint to the BPA and DVLA (re not receiving a POPLA code), and at the same time update them about the letter from DRP. [B]BUT[B] I have just found that the email did not get sent

    Now not sure what to do.
    Have I now missed the boat with my complaint to BPA and DVLA, which I was hoping would result in PCN being cancelled?
    Would I be better off just biting the bullet rather than having to end up going to court to fight this, which I guess I have no guarantee of winning and would then mean the cost to settle likely increasing significantly?
    Thanks in advance!

    No, complain now anyway

    Noone gives a toss about DRP.

    Post #4 of the NEWBIES thread offers comprehensive guidance on how to deal with debt collectors letters.

    To summarise that post - ignore debt collectors letters.
