I got a speeding fine in the mail yesterday, and it came from Civic Compliance Victoria, so I decided to have a look into who they are, you might find this very interesting...http://www.exfacie.com/?q=civic_compliance_victoria_explained
And while I'm at it, what does everyone else make of this? They are not even a legitimate company, would you still send the 3 letters to them requesting a contract, or some sort of evidence?
I should explain my situation a little further to clarify, as I've obviously done this process several times with various banks/credit cards/dca's, however recently I crossed the country and moved to Victoria, and finding work (well, getting ready to start a business more like it) was quite difficult at first. An opportunity came up to work as a Protective Services Officer (basically a policeman at the train stations to protect them at night).
At first I was quite opposed to the idea of working for the police after finding out all the stuff that's been going on that the general public don't know about. Then it occurred to me that could be useful to go through the training (it's virtually identical to how the Victoria Police are trained, and I'm at the Victoria Police Academy for 3 months during training), as they cover the law, as well as self defence and gun training, which I thought could all be very useful (particularly more knowledge as to how they are training the police and what they teach them about the law!).
Plus, my situation started to get a little more desperate, and I needed to get some money from somewhere.
So my question is, under these circumstances do you think I should still fight them on the penalty notice, or have I put myself into a position where I should just abide by their rules (for now at least, I don't plan on doing this permanently, that's for sure.)?
And what do you think would be the best route of attack?
It really boils my blood that these pricks hide themselves behind entity after entity and think they can get away with stealing our hard earned money.
For the record, I copped a $153 fine for allegedly going 54km per hour in a 50kph zone, and I'm pretty sure it was done by a fixed camera, there is no officer named on the fine.
Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated!
