came home to this! DVLA clamping unit left a nice note saying I was not displaying a valid disc. Whats this then?! ******* ham sandwich!? rang the DVLA hotline, "Computer says No" Apparently my disc is a duplicate, they have paid out a refund in October 2008 and cancelled mine the same day. So nine months later having renewed my insurance, driven through the London Congestion charge zone at least 6 times both of which have databases linked to the DVLA on unlicensed vehilces,.......a random drive by unit happens to drive down my street and flags up my car on the auto number recognition system. Does that smell like bullshit or is it just me. At 9 months ago I don't even remember why I would have got a duplicate! driving me nuts The worst bit is it happend at 4.50pm, shuts at 5pm. did catch them but they won't give me any details of when, how much or to whom they paid the refund, I have to fax them my current disc details as they don't even have that one on record!! If they have no obligation to show that I received the payment and can cancel a valid disc then I am f@cked! I face the prospect of a £200 unclamping fee and another £186 for a tax disc. nice. and I was having such a lucky week. Had a death in the family, a disaster at work today and now this!. **** comes in threes. best go an buy a lottery ticket as this run of **** can't continue. I am so tempted to go outside with the Stihl saw chop the f@cking boot off and ring back in the morning to say. "wow, you guys are quick, when did you take the clamp off?" b@stards!
