  • Phoenix and alleged PCN

    on 25 April 18 I received a text message regarding a "Phoenix Account" I had no idea what it was for but it threatening and "to avoid a vehicle being clamped and potentially removed " I needed to contact their office .

    I had had no idea who they were or what they wanted & I couldn't contact them via the mobile they sent the message to as it keep disconnecting .

    i have written to them asking them how they got this number & what they want

    today I've received a letter from Phoenix commercial collections on behalf of Bolton council regarding Penalty Charge Noice & demanding 423.00 !

    The parking fine date is 15 October 2017 ( a Sunday - I googled the date - free parking day ) for parking in a disabled space without displaying a blue badge.

    My mother does have a blue badge & I possibly may have been parked in the spot but I have never received a parking fine or I would have dealt with it at the time .

    the notices have been issued to my previous address and I no longer have the vehicle as I changed my car over a year ago ( & moved over 2 years ago)

    The he letter dated 25 April 19 ( today is 1 May 19) says an application has been made for "a warrant of Control to be re issued to my current address" .....& further costs.

    have I any way of challenging this & the costs.

    i certainly don't have 423. I really don't know which way to turn

    Hi Confused

    We tend to deal more with private parking (parking charge notices) rather than penalty charges.

    But ostell is much more knowledgeable than I on such matters....this will alert ostell to your thread.
