The Parking Prankster has been reading UKPC's website, which is full of scary talk advising people to pay up or they will get a CCJ.
Do we really take people to court and win?
Each month people receive CCJ’s from the civil courts after trying to avoid paying private parking charges. Here are a few examples from UKPC:
Name Amount Reference Connell £314.59 9MA07347 Koloko £307.24 9MA07109 McDonald £293.66 9MA06846 Mohanad £303.55 9MA07114 Morgan £303.83 9MA07345 Patel £308.88 9MA07329 Pledge £303.95 9MA07107 Tomlinson £303.70 9MA06847 Zarafat £293.86 9MA07110 Bailey-Edwards £304.76 9MA08392
The interesting thing about these references is that they were issued in 2009 in Maidstone County Court.
The Prankster has no idea where UKCP is actually based but their registered address is 2 hours drive away in Coventry.
Do UKPC take people to court and win? It seems they don't - not in the last 5 years anyway!
