    Dcbl pre enforcement letter 15th Jan 20 at 1:52 PM
    First off I have seen one or two getting a new letter from dcbl today.

    I just want to clear things up on this new letter.

    I got my second letter from dcbl today entitled pre enforcement letter. It says...

    You have failed to pay dcbl the outstanding is close to 200 pound ... relating or make contact to discuss the repayment of this debt. We will recommend to our client the commencement of legal recovery action against you. After further applications have been granted by the court the possible impact to you could be...

    Enables enforcement action... obtaining attachment of earnings... placing a charging order in your property ... and prevent future lending.

    I just want to say it does NOT say letter of claim. It also says this case is not subject to high court or bailiff action.

    I thought I would make a new thread on this because I expect a lot of people will have gotten the same letter.

    So can I stilll ignore this ? Thanks for all help In advance... Iím sure this post will help lots of people .

    It's a debt collectors letter.

    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.

    It is only a debt if a judge says it is. Until then it is an invoice from an ex clamper. Have you not read the advice in the stickies to ignore debt collectors.

    Nine times out of ten these tickets are scams, so consider complaining to your MP, it can cause the scammer extra costs and work, and has been known to get the charge cancelled.

    Parliament is well aware of the MO of these private parking companies, many of whom are former clampers, and on 15th March 2019 a Bill was enacted to curb the excesses of these shysters. Codes of Practice are being drawn up, an independent appeals service will be set up, and access to the DVLA's date base more rigorously policed, persistent offenders denied access to the DVLA database and unable to operate.

    Hopefully life will become impossible for the worst of these scammers, but until this is done you should still complain to your MP, citing the new legislation.

    Just as the clampers were finally closed down, so hopefully will many of these Private Parking Companies.
    You never know how far you can go until you go too far.
