I received a $30.00 "ticket" after paying the required amount, placing ticket on my dash. Crooks!
I agree with the rest of the negative reviews. I was issued an unjustified and unfair $30 'ticket' from one of their Hillcrest lots. Avoid this sketchy parking company at all costs! I strongly suggest complaining to the Better Business Bureau. Needless to say I will not be giving into this scam.
Frauds. I got a $30 "ticket" in the lot where I park EVERY DAY for work. I pay every day. Why would I suddenly decide not to? How can I possibly prove I paid? Do I have to record the act of folding my bill and pushing it into their box every day?

N, Mexico, no hablo ni leo bien en ingles, pero tengo recibo de pago de estacionamiento, sugiero instrucciones en espanol, para los turistas, no se a donde mandar el comprobante de pago y no quiero tener una multa
What a piece of crap company. I was in Blicks on India St / parked in their parking lot. When I came out I had a $30 parking ticket. Time stamp 1 minute before my register receipt time stamp...and the reason for the ticket is "not an active customer of the store". I was 1 of 3 people in the store at the time. So now I get to fight a parking ticket ...
fraud – On 4/15/2012 I parked at the Pernicanos parking lot in Hillcrest. I paid for one hour and was gone 40 minutes. When I got back to my car I had a $30 parking fee notice stating that the “Permit was not Visible”.
Only 34 minutes passed between the time that I parked and the notice, $32 charge for a 34 minute parking is ridiculous. I have called them 3 times and they don't even bother to call you back.
The ticket was on the dash board and visible. Before start to placing violations on cars they need to check their meters to make sure they weren’t paid.
Abusive employees – I park in one of their lots each week. I am in a RV and i park there to give me a close spot, while i set up for a local farmer's market. Last week when i parked I went to say hi to a friend who is also a vendor at the market. Then came back to my RV to get money to pay the meter. I always pay the meter. When i got out to head to the pay station, the guy, his name is Angel, was walking toward me with his clipboard. I said hello and asked him if i could just give him the money. He said, "you need to pay when you park, not when you see me!" I told him what i just wrote, said i was going to pay, he became very verbally abusive and told me that, "you homeless people never pay!" I said, "seriously... I pay every week. Have you ever written me a ticket? Have you ever seen my motor home here without paying. Just because i am in a motor home is not a good reason to be mean and abusive. You speak with an accent, are obviously dark skinned, do you like it when people judge you by your looks or speech. It is not OK for you to be mean to me just because you are mad at someone else in a motor home. He continued to be abusive and condescending. I asked for the number to speak to his manager. I have called the offices twice, once each day to speak to a manager but no one calls back. This company obviously does not care about its customers. Unfortunately i need to park in their lots once each week. But I would caution others, the company does not care about right or wrong, discrimination, or abuse. They only want their money. So sad!
Great experience – So I have hear a lot of bad reviews on the Parking Company of America and was extremely skeptical about doing business with them. I work for a construction business and we utilize their parking for our workers. I guess they were having issues were people were walking around passing out tickets for paid spaces that the car owners thought were real tickets and were paying them. These car owners were getting upset at Parking Company of America when it has nothing to do with them. It was a scam, and local police have been trying to stop this for the past few months. Simple solution: Don't pay them and read the fine print. Other than that the only thing that bugged me a little was the fact that they hardly ever answer the phone. For the most part they are good about quick turn around calls, but really that is the only thing that got me. The company is going to be doing a name change and a few other company changes, including online options for payments and so on. Hoping that the administrative aspect will improve as well. One thing that was MADE ME VERY PLEASED was when I called them to let them know that I didn't receive the parking passes until 8 days into the month (passes are from the 1st of the month to the last day of that month.) and I felt like I got ripped off for the 8 days. I didn't even make a fuss about it and she gave me a refund for the following month for the 8 days that were missed. And just for the record, the reason it did not get to me on time was because there was an old mailing address on our check and that's what they used as our mailing address. So technically it was out fault and they still credited me the 8 days. All and all I think that this company has gotten a bad rap. I have had a fairly easy experience with them and will continue to business with them in the future.
Fake and Wrong Ticket. – Do they compare the meter with their record. In case of emergency clients can not reach the company. I was given a ticket while car was paid for 10 hours rate $ 14.00 I would call police department and consumer dept of San Diego for this stupid act and fraud of collecting the money. and giving a false ticket. I understand if someone not had a ticket taken throu the meter than you should collect the money. I will peruse this case to department of consumer and city counselor on this issue as police station. by calling and filing a form. I hope city should take this notice ASAP.
No need to pay these fake tickets. – I received one of their so-called tickets after 35 minutes after paying for an hour. I don't know why they issue tickets before they are due, but it seems to be a pattern. THESE ARE NOT REAL TICKETS. if you look at the small print, it says that they are not a ticket issued by any official govt agency. This is a sick way to try to scam money off of people who are worried about the DMV and don't read the fine print.
