Re: Capital One

I bought a motorbike a few years ago and the seller put my correct postcode but incorrect street name. The DVLA helpfully corrected the postcode to match the street, which existed on the other side of London, and the next I knew of it was two bailiffs at my door to collect payment (£70 plus £430 charges) - which I had to pay to get the clamp removed.

Frantic FOIs to the council and DVLA traced the problem and I got it refunded, so all ended well. And now I double check the V5 before I post it off.
