DRP - Debt Recovery Plus - Extortion Racket

Surrounding and backing up our modern-day carpark extortion rackets, we have their associated debt collection agencies, who continue the threats and intimidation, leaning on the ordinary people and upping the price demand to put their bit on top.


DRP Limited serve a number of so-called clients including...
Euro Car Parks, UKPC, CP Plus, Parking Eye, Premier Park, G24 and of course Smart Parking.


  • Debt collection companies are private citizens with no special or authorized powers
  • These companies rely on promoting misleading facts, half-truths and even blatant lies to get your money
  • They will try a number of intimidating tactics, including solicitors' letters, to get you to pay

Dear MR WON'T BENDOVER

Paying your parking charge of £160.00
Most people pay their parking charges straightaway, but a small number of people don't. We're writing to you because you've not yet paid our client, and they've now asked us to collect payment.

What you need to do to settle this matter
If you want to settle, you need to pay by 29/05/2018. You can pay online or by phone. Go to www.debtrecoveryplus.co.uk/pay or phone 0208 234 6775. Details of other ways to pay are on the back of this letter.

What if you want to settle but you're having problems paying
Please phone us on 0208 234 6775. We can talk about ways to make it easier and more affordable to pay, such as setting up a debit/credit card payment for your next payday, or agreeing a short term payment plan. When you phone, please quote our reference 5077547.

What if you don't think you're liable for this parking charge
The person liable for this parking charge is the person who was the driver when it was issued. In certain circumstances, liability can be transferred to the registered keeper. If you’re not sure that you’re liable, phone us on 0208 234 6775 and we’ll look in to it. If we don’t hear from you, we’ll take this to mean that you agree you’re liable for it.

What happens if you don't pay what you owe
If you pay in full or make arrangements to pay by 29/05/2018, this matter will be settled. If you don’t, we’ll recommend to our client that they take court action against you.

Important information - Supreme Court decision about parking charges
You’ve probably heard people say that parking charges aren’t lawful and that motorists shouldn’t pay them. However, in November 2015 a parking operator, like our client, took a motorist to court for a parking charge - and won. The Supreme Court ruled that the parking charge was lawful. The ruling is seen as an important ‘test case’ for parking operators, like our client. You can find details online at www. supremecourt.uk/cases/uksc-2015-0116. htm I
