Picture of the week. Gladstones issue letter before claim for £17 million

Hapless solicitors Gladstones Solicitors have told Mr Knowles he owes G24 Ltd £17,092,015.


The Prankster understands Mr Knowles will contest the claim.

  1. I thought you would like that one when I saw it on one of the parking charge Facebook groups. I think it helps prove the lack of human intervention once these things get rolling... From ANPR cameras that can't provide accuracy through to miss-types replacing amounts with something that bears a resemblance to a date... ... 17.09.2015 perhaps?

  2. It's definitely the date of incident. But it's still hysterical that they as "professionals" have made such an error

  3. To put the date instead of the amount on their own letter?
    TWICE?
    Did these people go to school, or just play truant? Please let it go to court!

  4. I wonder what the court fees on this would be.
    Also, doesn't this make it a little awkward when they claim money for completing these forms, which haven't been compiled by a human?

  5. What are the court fees for a claim of over £17M?

    1. Wouldn't be dealt with at county court level that's for sure.

  8. A pretty clear case of harrassment I think- demanding an amount which bears no possible relation to any amount in dispute.

    1. Hardly. No court is going to take a harassment claim for something like this seriously. It's an obvious admin error, and if followed by a claim would almost certainly be struck out on the court's own initiative.

    2. Indeed, it's a very minor error and could be dealt with easily by a token punitive fine from the court, perhaps a mere 10% of the mis-claimed amount. Who could argue with that?

    1. But that would only be for £11m, around £6m out of pocket!!

    2. Yeah, wait until a week next Thursday.

  10. They are still using the old address for Gladstones; so more likely, this is DRP messing up by using the wrong paper.!

  11. Another one reported on MSE by poster called mad-as-hell on 14th November - this time for £15m. Same originating PPC, and Debt Recovery Plus.
