Right before Christmas I received an overdue parking ticket in the mail. It has my name and license plate but it’s really not mine. I have never been to the location noted on the ticket. The vehicle description has the right make but the wrong color. Why did they think it was my car? I’m thinking they must have written down the wrong license plate number. Whoever got the ticket on the windshield just threw away the ticket after they saw the wrong plate number. I wrote a letter to dispute it. I had to send it by certified mail which cost me $3. How do I prove I wasn’t at that spot at that time? They must have heard that story many times. Except this time it’s really not me. Guilty until proven innocent? Let’s see how it goes.
Has this happened to you? Any guess on my chance of convincing them?
