  1. Thanks for your reply IanHL, especially the last couple of lines. I have sent a letter to the CEO at the registered office and with a stamp on it but got no response yet, that was just over 3 weeks ago. What I find strange is in a country that has lots of legislation (to much some would say), we appear to have no way of stopping unsolicited addressed mail. Or claiming compensation for the time and expense it costs to try and stop them sending it in the first place, as it is a form of harassment if you have been in lengthy corresponded with them and they don't stop sending it. I wou
  2. Sorry registering with the mail preference service only works if the company are members and this one is not, also it is only a voluntary code. (they are a bit like me have teeth but they are a bit false). Registering with them will in no way stop addressed Junk mail. Also being on the restricted electoral register, will not stop addressed mail there are many ways companies get our details other than the electoral register.
  3. Sorry this is addressed junk mail I am talking about. Not Door 2 Door mail or as some Postmen call it bread and butter mail. And if you opt out of Door 2 Door mail as you call it you would not receive the government EU leaflet.
  4. Sorry I've not been very active and replied to posts on site in last 2 weeks but went on holiday, so 2 weeks of no junk mail from Virgin but it was on the door mat when I got back. I like the twitter and Facebook suggestions, but as I don't use either that's not really an option for me. Geoff1248 has a good point that is not in the interest of some marketing companies to stop sending it as it cuts there income. And the suggestion to send it to the CEOs home address if we could find it is the best one, as it worked with this company before see my post 30.
  5. Thanks for your reply Rinfrance. I think we are straying from my initial point, the point is all that needs to happen is the sender Virgin media, to stop sending the mail in the first place and the problem is solved. It is that simple or so I thought. However the Royal Mail have to abide by the Universal Service Obligation and Ofcom regulations. I agree and accept they make money out of such mail. But to state that there is no obligation on me to accepts such post I find a strange comment, as once it is received through my letter box. I have to deal with it in one way or another
  6. Well at leased it worked for you and some others. I know the letters I posted with stamps got to them as they responded with some poor excuses as to why they could not stop sending it to me. The ones without stamps got no response so either they ignored them or they did not get to them. It looks like I will have to just keep trying to find a way of stopping them. I am also wandering if it is because of what I did 4 years ago (see post 30) and they have kept a record and its payback time.
  7. Well it may have worked in your case, but for me it has not done it 5 times since Christmas plus letters to them and to there registered office and it still keeps coming. last one 3 days ago. How long did it stop it for and did you put stamps on it?
  8. First of all as you state the law is different in France and from what you are saying sounds better at dealing with this issue. You are talking about in your first line is addressed mail, UK postal regulation clearly put a duty on the Royal Mail deliver this. You can only opt out of unaddressed mail by registering with Royal Mail. Most of this mail the Royal Mail have to accept under the universal service agreement and it starts its journey with another mail company such as UK Mail in this case. The Royal Mail have to deliver the final mile as its known, and there are limits on what
  9. You to are missing the point, this is addressed mail. We all know you can register and Royal mail will stop un addressed mail are you sure it is Royal Mail have you caught the post man actually doing it if you are registered you need to take it up with them. just because you come home and find junk mail on your door mat and post. it don't mean the post man has put it there.
  10. I am not here to defend the Royal Mail in any way. But you have clearly missed the point The Royal Mail are losing money on it by doing what you suggest and all of the costs of handling mail returned in the way you suggest, are passed on to us all in postal charges. We all use the postal service even if it is receiving a council tax bill, election papers, or many other forms of mail. the increase in postal charges is reflected in a very small way in everyone's costs. The solution is to find a way of stopping companies from sending it in the first place, and so far I have not succe
  11. Mail preference service only works if they are members which they are not. so good suggestion but wont work in this case.
  12. Well there have been a lot of suggestions some that have worked for others but not everyone, most of which I have tried. Your response sounds very much like what I have gone through in letters to them over the last few months and answers are still the same. The suggestions that are put it in the post back with or without a stamp, are clearly from people who do not know how the postal system works. So let me try to explain how it works. All post that is collected goes to a mail sorting centre. It is sorted in large machines that will rejected it as it has not got the correct postage
  13. Thanks Mr P, will give it a try who knows they stop it just think if we all just put it in the recycling they have won. We all have to pay for the recycling and the inconvenience of picking it up sorting through it and putting it there, although it helps pay my brothers wages delivering it.
  14. No have never had a contract with them, and no one at this address has ever had one as have lived here longer than cable TV has been around. We where only the second house in the road to have a phone installed by the GPO that's how long we have been at this address.
  15. There was a reason I was worried about being identified. but what the heck if they do identify me so what. My reason was some 4 years ago I had the same problem with them and after a lot of letters from them making excuses and failing to stop it. I started to copy in a Mr Branson at his home address and return the junk mail there, interestingly although he did not respond within a month I received an apology from them and had nothing until a few months ago. Unfortunately he has moved since then or I would do the same again. Part of me agrees with you just accept it, but they are no
