ANPR Ltd – my story
Michael received what looked like a court claim from from H&L Litigation on behalf of ANPR Ltd. It looked like the real thing and Michael was considering paying it. To ensure it was the real thing, he decided to ring Northhampton County Court. The court asked for his claim number but there was not claim number on the claim form. So the the court told Michael it wasn’t a real claim. Michael got a lawyer friend of his to take a look. His friend commented: “no claim number, no issue date and no stamp, naughty naughty and referred Michael to this legislation covering “falsely pretending to act under authority of court” http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1984/28/section/135 See http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=4883157
Mary also received what she thought looked like a legitimate ANPR Ltd court claim from from H&L Litigation. Only just like Michael, it wasn’t real, it was only a draft.

Angela Parry, Lancashire GP, spent 15 minutes parked at Stonyhurst Close visting an ill patient. Despite showing her identification to the camplers, they insisted she pay the £80 fine. Trevor Whitehouse, a director at the Preston-based National Clamps, said his employees had done nothing wrong. And said “”She’s not going to get her money back unless somebody wants to contribute to our running costs”. Afer clamping was banned in October 2012, Mr Whitehouse has started a new company called ANPR Ltd which issued PCN’s to vehicles. Reports who he is just as ruthless in the new company as the old one.
John Spenceley stopped for a few minutes to take his daughter on an emergency trip to the toilet at Liscard’s Cherry Tree Shopping Centre. He exceed the allotted time by just two minutes.
When they returned, Mr Spenceley found a ticket on the windscreen charging him £50. The penalty then increased by 100% after Mr Spenceley failed to pay within seven days. In a letter to Mr Spenceley, the ANPR warned that time to pay £100 was reducing rapidly” and he has since been informed the fine has risen to £140. Trevor Whitehouse, chairman of Preston-based recovery company ANPR Ltd said: “There are warning signs clearly displayed which set out the terms of conduct. Unfortunately, some people choose to ignore those warnings. When we pursue a driver through the DVLA we incur costs which have to be recovered.
