My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.
Do you have copies of the infringements and the dates that they were issued? Are the dates before you bought the car and it was transferred into your name?
There is no need to send them to me I accept what you are saying.
The one with the photo, is it your car and your numberplate?
Have you ever given the car to someone else to drive?
If it was after the transfer occurred and there is a date stamp you are going to have difficulty proving it was during the period before you were an owner.
I am not sure how you will be able to prove that they changed the date on the photo.
Did the car have the same number plates when it was a rental or was it changed when you purchased it?
The only thing I can suggest is go back to Thrifty and ask them about what areas they had leased the car in and see if they match.
If you fight this you will lose. All I can suggest is you elect to go to court and see if the court will reduce the fines based on your financial position.
The dates are against you and you cannot prove that it was not you. this is the issue.
That is the first step and collect all the information.
You are only charged what you offered.
Good luck with it and all the best
