To whom it may concern,
I am writing to discuss your request for a contract titled: “Infringement Notice”, obligation number xxxxxxxxxx.
You cite the Infringements Act 2006 and the Road Safety Road Rules 2009. Before I agree to this contract or pay your organisation any monies, I will require the following proofs relating to these acts and rules.
A. Proof that those acts and rules were applicable to me at the time of the alleged infringement.
B. Proof that those acts and rules obligate me to pay the requested amount; and
C. Proof that you have the authority to enforce these acts and rules; or
D. Proof of a contract signed or agreed to by me that clearly states I am bound to pay these amounts; and
E. Proof that this contract was applicable to me at the time of the alleged infringement; and in addition
F. These documents signed by a man or woman of appropriate authority, with full liability and under penalty of perjury, and witnessed by a notary public or Justice of the Peace.
Please provide either all of proofs A, B, C and F, or all of the proofs D, E and F.
If you issue me any more requests for payment without first producing these proofs, I will impose the following fee schedule:
$170 (one hundred and seventy dollars) per hour, or any part of an hour, for the legal research necessary to determine if your claims are valid.
Please respond to this notice promptly, within fourteen days of receipt. If you do not respond within fourteen days, it is assumed that you no longer wish to negotiate this contract, and I will consider it void.
