  1. (reposted here as getting no views over in energy firms, probably not the right place for it) Anyone have any idea how this bunch of jokers can do this? I left British Gas, cancelled my direct debit, and when the bill came I paid it - which I would consider normal... BRITISH GAS TRADING - ELECTRICITY Started 24/04/07 Balance £0 Settled 24/11/09 Monthly payment £0 over 0 months Status History 06 In the last 2 months of account activity, the number of status 1-2 is 00 and the number of status 3+ is 01 File updated for the period 20/12/09 wtf???? What's the best thing

  3. They have escalated my complaint (which was made by telephone) - now I just need to phone NCCS again about my other complaint - they reduced the credit limit on my card from 9k to 500 quid without notice, and then told me I could appeal and it "wouldn't affect my credit rating" - so in that case, why is there a fresh search on my experian account from nationwide ("unrecorded enquiry").....
  4. The 16th feb is no notice at all - the rate change took effect at the beginning of the month!!!
  5. Phone up and complain then (although they may ignore you, as they did me....)
  6. They do this a lot too, and apparently should you not receive the letter in time / at all it's completely your problem, according to the chap I spoke to ("we acknowledge no mistake")
  7. Has anyone else had this change this week, without being given any notice at all? I phoned today and the call centre were largely clueless, although they did confirm that the last time they sent me any correspondence was back in November, pretty much sticking their foot in it. Now excuse me if I'm wrong, but given I think it's arguable that increasing the interest rate on my overdraft is a change that is to my disadvantage.... Their website actually goes as far as to say "notice given" at this url - Nationwide Building Society - FlexAccount - Rates & charges, but
  8. Check your email - they've put the price up, so I'm cancelling this service, was useful in the past but doesn't tell me anything I don't already know now....
  9. Due to the base rate change, I'm not actually switching my mortgage yet (or for some time if I can't make some overpayments and claw back some of my LTV!) - so haven't really pursued this. I'm just looking forward to dropping onto their 4.44% SVR at just the right time, then I'll deal with switching mortgages later in the year...
  10. I'm fairly impressed - they actually managed to send us a letter stating who we owed the money too - turned out that the wife really did owe Reader's Digest around 30 quid for something (overpriced) that she had actually ordered and received, and had received a reminder letter for. (grrrrrrrr!) She just rang Reader's Digest and paid the original amount, getting a reference number for this payment, so presumably we can now ignore these people (who wanted 5 quid more than the original amount for calling and sending a letter) and if they get funny ask them to prove that we owe the original a
  11. Mine logs calls - which is good as I haven't implemented a way of recording them yet - might have to get the gear to record and then start answering them, see how badly they can slip up.
  12. All obscure numbers get screened in our house, usually because we're not actually around to answer them and see them on the phone when we get in. I read somewhere about there being a limit to how many times a company are allowed to call without receiving an answer???
  13. I'd go on the holiday, the main reason my wife suffered so badly with PND was that we couldn't afford to go away and spend time together as a family.
  14. Of BBC Watchdog infamy, sure you know them very well on here - keep getting missed calls from them (OK, so some of the missed calls have been whilst I've been at home, because (a) I'm not completely stupid and know how to use google and (b) I have caller display.....) As I haven't received any correspondence from them, and neither me nor the wife owe anyone any money (whom we have a credit agreement with), I assume it's safe for me to carry on pretending they haven't called - after all, if they want me to pay them some money obo some organisation, the least they could do is write a letter
  15. Dear Nicola, I enclose a copy of a demand for payment for an unsolicited delivery of a large parcel of books to the address above on 28th May this year (I actually spoke to a representative on the telephone personally, who called me at home, and during the conversation stated that I was not interested in “previewing” this collection at all – they later phoned and spoke to my husband, SeanT, who confirmed that he could act on my behalf, and also stated categorically that I had no interest in receiving these books.) The books were delivered anyway, and delivery of the books was taken by a r
