One Parking Solution warned by a Judge

On 1 May 2020 at 8:04am Scamdodger wrote:
If you have been caught by these scammers at Eastgate Wharf, I suggest you read this very recent local court case which found that One Parking Solutions do not have sufficient evidence of landowner authority or adequate signage at EASTGATE WHARF, LEWES. They tried to bully a defendant by threatening a charge of up to £845 for stopping (but not parking) a vehicle for 12 minutes. Eventually the defendant won costs of £528! See the full judgement attached.

Well done Mrs W. So this has revealed that One Parking Solution have issues with the leased area.
I urge every one of the thousands of innocent victims of this company who have been ‘invoiced’ to claim back the money paid, plus costs and compensation for the bullying, threatening , intimidating and incorrect behaviour associated.

The Judge described the lease produced by One Parking Solution as "suspiciously bizzare". This is sailing close to the wind . Also said that if there are more cases OPS could face an application for a civil restraint order.

Sussex Express if you read this, please headline it! It’s massive news. If enough victims act on this it will really have impact on stamping out this scourge on motoring.

Hi Scamdodger and everyone else here,
I am Ms W, the Defendant in this Eastgate Wharf case. I am very uncomfortable with my employer being named and I have further redacted my Judgement to remove their name. Scamdodger please remove the link to the Judgement and insert a link to my redacted Judgement which I have sent to you. And please, if everyone could refrain from contacting Sussex Express until the new link is here and also if you are considering sending them the Judgment, wait until my further redacted one is available. Thank you so much and I really hope that this excellent Judgment can assist others and help to stop these bullies from making people's lives a misery. Thanks

Ms. W; Hello. I'm sorry, I can't find a way of deleting or editing the original post. If there's a webmaster about, please do so. Also, I haven't received a redacted version of your Judgement. I suggest you contact the person who put the original version on Dropbox and get them to delete it.

Hi Scamdodger, Thank you for your response. I appreciate that. I have now contacted the person who put the document in Dropbox and they have deleted it. Here is the version with my employer redacted out, otherwise it is exactly the same. Thanks so much everyone for understanding. Please use this link now to access the excellent Judgment. I shall be writing to the DVLA to complain and also I will formulate a letter to Sussex Express and see if they wish to do an article on this. So, here is the link and thanks again Scamdodger ;-)

Are you the person I warned to move off some time ago as drove past? If so I'm glad you beat the scam!

Hi Tom Pain,
No not I. My case was early 2019. However, I am sincerely hoping that this Judgment assists others who are facing the same difficulties with OPS with regard to Eastgate Wharf. Thanks.

The parking incident was early 2019. The case was heard in Lewes on 5 Feb, but only just received the Judgment last week.

Hello again, Please could I reiterate, anyone who picked up my Judgment from the link which Scamdodger's kindly posted on Friday 1st May at 08:04 - and which is now inactive, please do not use or share that for any purpose whatsoever. Do use the link which I posted today, as I further redacted to protect my employer, otherwise it is identical and I thank Scamdodger for bringing this to your attention. By 1st June, various entities must produce information to the court, if I am allowed access to the outcome of that then I shall share here with you. Also, fyi it is worth noting that the Lease of Eastgate Wharf between the landowners and OPS shows that OPS only lease the 6 parking bays to the right of Laura Ashley and not the 2 bays to the left. Neither do OPS lease any other part of the land, according to the Lease. OPS therefore have no right to capture cctv of vehicles entering and leaving the land and then count this time as 'parking'. No right at all. Anyhow, I'll get back to you with the outcome of 1st June, if I have it. Any more info that you need, please do ask.

Oh dear, if they are ordered to pay back all the ill gotten gains from Eastgate, there’s a chance it could bankrupt them. What a shame. I’m gonna miss having to check for entrapment scams every time my car is stationary for more than 1 second.

I have decied to wait to notify newspapers until after 1st of June when findings are reported (as per Judge's 'invitation') then we will have the whole true picture of exactly what rights OPS have or do not have for operating this entrapment at Eastgate Wharf.

Yes, there's many a slip.... I look forward to hearing from you in June.

Thanks Scamdodger for posting the link. I shall still be back to let you know about the information requested by the District Judge by 1st June. Myself, I did not talk to the press and do not want to, but am grateful to them for highlighting my case which should help others and draw attention to the scandalous operations of money making machines who claim to be parking companies providing a service to communities and in fact are nothing more than unscupulous chancers.

One Parking Solutions back to their old tricks during Covid Lockdown period, dropping off an item for an elderly sheilding relative, I overstayed by 1.48 minutes (ironically they same time as the court case mentioned). OPS remain jobsworth and do not answer my questions & have now sent a final notice. I would like to appeal to the Landlord direct does anyone have their name & postal address, or indeed any advice?

There are no "bits" worth paying attention to, TP. Its all regurgitated nonsense that you have on constant loop. more
