    Hi,

    I recently went to a different area within London and parked in a bay (not knowing it was for permit holders!) - it's not the same in outskirts of London like Grays in Essex. Anyways, I got a letter through my post a few days later demanding me to pay for a ticket that I did not even f receive in the first place! As in, there was no PCN ticket on my windscreen at the time and plus I took a picture of my car BEFORE I left the area which shows my car without the PCN ticket.

    If I had the PCN notice on my car, I would have appealed and if unsuccessful would have coughed up half the price. These CEO's piss me off so so much, I bet you the scum removed my ticket after it all.

    Anyways, how do I go about appealing it if I never even had the ticket in the first place?

    It's so so annoying because I genuinely never physically received a PCN

    Mind, this is rare, but it could be a fake. Anyone could easily fake out a letter and ask you to pay the price....ngl even I could....but at the price of the not getting caught.

    Best step is to check if the "final" ticket is actually a real ticket?

    How do I do that?

    If I want to appeal I have to fill out a form -_-

    It's so annoying because in the past I always have the yellow PCN stuck on my car

    Go on the internet and type in the council and press pay for parking ticket something like that (don't worry you won't be paying right now). Type in your parking ticket number and if it submits and shows pay screen, then your ticket is real.

    Or phone up the council and ask them if the ticket is real.
