The Prankster has heard of one more ParkingEye upset today, but his fingers are too worn out to do any more typing.
No doubt ParkingEye will be working feverishly all weekend to update their website. Here is the start of their latest post, which was 6 months ago. Obviously nothing newsworthy has happened since then.
4 of the best - ParkingEye fights back against the forums
Unfortunately a number of motorists receive misguided and often misleading advice from online forums who claim that ParkingEye's charges are 'unfair' and 'illegal'. Previously this advice urged motorists to ignore all correspondence from ParkingEye, advice that has meant that ParkingEye has had to take legal action to recover the unpaid Parking Charges. Further to this many motorists, on receiving a claim form, visit these sites for a 'robust' template defence. This sort of defence, and all that have subsequently followed, have failed to convince any County Court Judge that ParkingEye's charges are unfair, disproportionate or a penalty.
The Prankster suggests the following would be a suitable update.
7 of the best - ParkingEye epic failure against the forums
Unfortunately a number of motorists receive misguided and often misleading advice from ParkingEye who claim that judges have created a new area of law especially for them which allows them to override consumer law, the BPA Ltd Code of Practice and anything else they find inconvenient. ParkingEye's charges are 'unfair' and 'illegal'. ParkingEye previously urged motorists to pay up straight away. However, following their discovery that they could add £50 filing fee to their claim without actually incurring this charge, they now urge all motorists to wait until receiving a claim form before paying up. ParkingEye recommend motorists do not visit forums for advice, or buy the Prankster's guides or try and put up any kind of defence whatsoever. ParkingEye warn motorists that if they do this they are liable to convince large numbers of County Court Judges that ParkingEye's charges are unfair, disproportionate or a penalty. This may lead to shareholder dissatisfaction with ParkingEye and further legal action.
