Gladstones chase £15 million parking charge


G24 Ltd have asked Gladstones to enforce a parking charge of £15092015.

Perhaps someone should teach G24 the different between money and dates.

The letter does not give any way to contact either Debt recovery Plus or Gladstones, so the Prankster suggests that the email addresses of info@drpl.co.uk and  enquiries@gladstonessolicitors.co.uk are used.

Happy Parking

  1. I'd let it go to court and defend on the basis of not a GPEOL

    1. I thought Beavis sunk the GPEOL defence? Isn't "commercially justifiable" the test now ("We like money, therefore justified"). That amount would certainly act as a deterrent.

    2. No, the test is whether the sum is proportionate to the need to protect the legitimate interest concerned.

      Clearly £15m is disproportionate.

    3. And funnily enough, about as much as the director would have to pay for a decent yacht in the Bahamas.

  2. Of course, you can't claim for that much in the small claims court...

    1. Indeed, which would require you to retain a solicitor and claim some serious costs back from them. Could be interesting.

  3. The recipient was quite irresponsible tearing the sPeCulative iNvoice in half like that. Hearsay Hurley might suffer a nasty paper cut to his anus.

    1. Not bad, but the UKPC web of deceit is my one-stop-shop for irony,

      "Within the parking industry there are some unscrupulous operators with untrained staff who have given the parking management industry a bad reputation and a poor image. Here at UKPC we take immense pride in being different and providing our clients with an experience that is professional in its approach, positive in its delivery and rewarding with its results."

  5. Worthy of a complaint to the SRA as clearly 'Gallstones' (it's what most there customers must end up with) haven't excercised any dilligence before sending this out.
