there are limits on what they can claim, and they're free to claim up to these limits..... as expected, this guy did...... but also threatened to add more if he had to come back; which is fraud and intimidation.

I've coughed up, but have put a complaint in about that.


Oh Dan I didn't realize that was the case. That being the case I think I'd have rather sweated it out for a bit. Surly the best thing that could have happened is matey thinking he's not getting his money and then doing a deal with you?

Velcro number plates come in handy sometimes


..and would be illegal. So we won't be mentioning it again. Capiche?


Bad luck Dan.  Best pay up and write it off.

true enough, but I've always picked my fights carefully and a moral victory over the pond life that is debt recovery 'professionals' is, if you'll excuse the pun..... shallow.

indeed..... plus you'd probably have an intention of breaking the law in the first place..... I was visiting the doc's, mind on other things, didn't see the 'permit holders only' sign.

he's right though..... number plates on velcro make fantastic evidence.....

Yeah sure, and easier said than done of course. My suggestion wasn't pointing you towards a moral high ground you understand.... rather hoping that it might be a future tactic to save a bit of money.

Don't know if this violates site policy Nat but feel free to remove.

I have a mate who used to get pinched regularly by a rather over-zealous parking company at Bristol UWE. They had a three strikes and you're clamped ruling and so started popping a different number plate on his car (probably illegal even on private land?) and it solved the problem lovely.
