Full Version: Claim Form - name spelt wrong

Hola kids,

I received a lovely Claim Form from GPB Solicitors LLP on behalf on PCN (NW) Ltd for £237.21. There was one thing I noticed though, my name is spelt wrong. Does this invalidate the claim? The event happened last year (post 1st October). At the time I had no idea about PoFa.

Edit: And when trying to check the PCN online it says there is no such ticket, PayMyPCN.net.

I thought you were clued up on this. Why the sudden question?

My knowledge is lacking when it comes to court letters, I've had no experience with them.

this a filed claim or just a ' this is what we intend to do' thing as they normally send.

It depends how mis-spelled it is & whether a reasonable person would think that it is addressed to them. If your name is Brown & the letter was addressed to Brow then it's an obviously a typo & the court won't have a problem accepting that. If it's addressed to Crown then it's debatable but if it's addressed to Smith then you would be within your rights to send it back marked 'Not Known'.

I wouldn't worry about how they have spelt your name. They can simply reissue the claim if you make them aware. You need to focus on your defence.

are these properly stamped genuine court papers ?
mjw1
Yes sorry, they are stamped and have a reference. The spelling mistake is adding a letter to the end of my last name, I was hoping it would make a difference but looks like it won't.

Going of what nigelbb said it looks as if I will have to get a case together. I plan on finding out about PoFa on Monday when as hopefully it may help in my case. I have no idea about what a worthwhile case is made up of mind you, is there any one on the forum that can help?

Same situation as on MSE about six times yesterday. Here are two with links & advice:

It seems that the Notice to Keeper was always sent out very late, some 100 days after the event?!

I've requested the date the NTK was sent out so I shall see what I get back. If it is within the date PoFa standards what do I do regarding a defence? I take it I should file for the 28 days now, to say I'm going to fight it.

It won't be and the Letter before Claim (LBC) won't be compliant either. Look at the other half a dozen cases now newly posted about this same situation on MSE now. Loads of advice already given about how the LBC is flawed/misleading and that complaints need to be made to the BPA and DVLA about non-compliance with the timeline to issue a NTK, since they are now trying to sue the registered keeper WITHOUT Having established rk liability under POFA.

Hope you never said who was driving? Still don't. But do read all the other PCN(NW) threads on that MSE forum in the morning. You will learn a lot on how to fight this.

As regards the defence, read the links that lead from here:

Ah okay, we'll my contact found out the NTK was sent on the 8th February 2013. Miles out.
SchoolRunMum
Same as all the others then, plenty of advice already given on MSE where I am Coupon-mad.

Here's a thread where I have collated all the recent threads about this in one place:

http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=4779596

So start by reading all the advice already given and get complaining and acknowledging/defending so that this is hopefully dropped.

Any idea if cases regarding PoFa that have gone to court have been kicked out?
