PCN - Theft of money

Postby wavey » Fri Apr 19, 2013 3:48 pm


I recently wrote to the council explaining why a PCN left on my vehicle was wrong, referring to their local parking regs/statutes. I received a reply from one of the public servants refusing my argument and refusing to enter into further correspondence.

I decided to send a cheque while the lower rate of payment was being offered, but attached a note stating it wasn't an admission of guilt and that it was to be kept until I had a fair hearing. If it was cashed, I would consider it to be taken without proof of a contravention taking place and without my consent.

The cheque was cashed this week, about 3 weeks after the note was sent.

I was wondering which is the best route to go with this.

Maybe you should have pre dated the cheque for 6 months time.

nope you consented to the contract once you sent them the credit note :no:
payment is a sort of admission of guilt and settlement of account or if not then why did you even consider sending them a credit :puzz: .personally i wouldn't of even considered clearing the account that was entered into unwittingly :peace:
