I got a parking violation in a free car park over 4 years

This answer was rated:

I got a parking violation in a free car park over 4 years ago, I remember sending in a reply when I first got it, and to be truthful I forgot all about it, I got a letter from a courthouse in Northampton saying I’d been found guilty, so I wrote them a letter and they have adviced me to get a N244, I’ve got one but I don’t understand it. Thank you
JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what location this is in?
Customer: Bradfield rd Sheffield S6
JA: Was a citation issued? Was a court date set?
Customer: I got a letter saying I had 28 days to reply, but there was no court date
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: To reply to the citation I got I could only reply by email which I did, as soon as I sent the email a automatic reply came back and said by sending the email I automatically agreed to pay

I am so disappointed with your response, could you please give me a time when you might call, I cannot sit here all day and night waiting

To be fair, I did say right at the outset that I couldn't call. You chose to ask for a call.

I could have done this online at 1pm.

I will be home at 18.30hrs. Is that any good?

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
When you said you couldn’t call, then why did you ask me to pay £44, I’m sorry I didn’t realise you meant all day, I’m home and alone but if you want to call Monday it’s fine by me

I’ve been asked to write a review, well I cannot give one, you knew the answer at 1 o’clock but you still advised me for you to call, I got well and truly conned
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Also when I paid £5 it said refundable, how do I claim it back
