    There are a few good websites that give you advice and sample letters to print off
    consumeractiongroup.co.uk/for…tml is worth a look at.

    Go to the citizens advice or google the name of the company they might have more info on their website.

    Good Luck.

    speak to citizens advice. Dec 2006!! They are having a laugh!!!
    Whatever you do, don't pay. Thats nearly 2 years ago. How are you expected to remember where you were parked that long ago? There must be some sort of time limit on how long they can leave it before they give you your ticket.

    i would call them up and ask them for proof of the ticket being issued, as well as evidence of the car it was issued to, as you are disputing ever getting the ticket. tell them without evidence to show the ticket or the car, you are not going to pay as you feel that after 2 years you really should have heard something about it before now.

    2006 !! - get all the details first - where it was etc - seems such a long time to chase you up - if it was you!!
    we got letter demanding money from a car we had 10 yrs ago - supposedly parked on yellow line in limerick!!!!! - took few phone calls - dvla etc - dont pay unless you are 100% sure it was you!!

    You are not alone! Sounds like a dodgy company trying to extort money by buying other company debts. Tell them they have to provide detailed info on the source of the fine and that you are going to report them to trading standards.

    I suspect you did actually get a ticket which went unpaid.

    could i sen dthem a email instead of a letter would his count as correspondanceor should i just write.

    Send a letter. In writing. Send it recorded delivery. Get proof of delivery (Royal mail website), print that out and keep it. keep a copy of the letter.

    ANY thing they may say on the phone: get them to confirm it in writing.

    If they don't/won't confirm, send them a letter, referring to the conversation you had (company, date, person, subject and any reference code) and state your understanding of the conversation and any actions, by whom they are to be performed and by when. Send that recorded delivery too.

    Remember: If it ain't in writing, it don't exist.

    A classic prank in high school was to take people's parking tickets. Usually you pay a lesser amount if you pay your penalty quickly and have to pay a higher penalty the longer you wait. So if someone takes the car owner's parking ticket, the car owner won't know about the penalty until it is weeks later and thus have to pay the higher cost.

    This is your way forward, you can't do anything else but follow this. If you comply with Trading Standards you have the means to dispute their claim.

    rip it up and ignore them, there is no such thing as a parking fine from a private company it is simply an invoice that you did not agree to and cannot be proven in court especially 2 yrs on.

    Incorrect. Local authorities are increasingly farming out bad debts to private companies for collection. This company is bona fide.

    Are you positive about that?, a quick google shows some reports of very under handed tactics with loads of errors/dubious practices by this company and its receivers etc.
    I doubt many local authorities would tolerate such activities.

    yes, positive. a quick search reveals people have been presented with copies of the parking tickets etc from this company.

    Sorry you seem to be contradicting yourself there?,in your first post you stated it was the councils issuing the tickets, now its the company them selves?
    If a council issues a ticket it will always be declared on the ticket, as stated just because a "company" issues a ticket (and lots do), in law that is an invoice, nothing more.
    A bit of research shows BPM to be a company that is now in liquidation so any contract that may of existed no longer does so.

    you misunderstood. Councils issue the tickets but if uncollected then sell the tickets at a greatly reduced price to companies like BPM.

    It seems that BPM have gone into liquidation and Credit Resource Solutions have bought the "debt". May explain the delay in trying to collect this parking debt.
