What does DRPL Debt Collectors Do?

They work with a number of clients and as well as their parking fine collection service, they also work to recover County Court Judgements too. Both of which have a similar process to other debt management agencies.
What does DRPL Debt Collection Process look like?
It seems that DRPL are keen to give their debtors plenty of ways to pay. They have an online payment portal which you can use any time to make a payment, you can pay through any credit or debit cards as well as PayPal. There is also an automated payment line that you can call and make a payment. However, if you want to speak to someone about your debt or the payments that you need to make, then there is also a call centre.
Scandalous. Tried charging for a fine that’s already paid. Aggressively informed me that i must have an issue with my postal address. They’d sent me 4 letters, their solicitor had sent me 2. If I don’t pay I’ll get a CCJ. Called their solicitor who had never heard of me, or my address, and had certainly never sent any letters. Called the company that the fine had been paid to originally, who confirmed and sent me a receipt as proof. Absolute scammers, oh and they hung up when it became clear I wasn’t getting my debit card out.
