  1. Hello Lee. Experian state that"linked addresses remain on my credit report for up to eight years. This is to ensure that any relevant information at my previous addresses is made available to lenders" (this is why they wont remove the linked address), I have this in writing. I did explain to Experian that the accounts have been satisfied in full since 24/07/2008 and 03/10/2008 .. & I subsequently told them that the information they hold (i.e. the linked address) is no longer required for credit referencing purposes/relevant to lenders (in my opinion). I am to date awaitin
  2. Hello Lee (and everyone reading this post). After a number of emails a compromise was met by myself and Vodafone. I personally can recommend the help of Lee from Vodafone. He was very helpful, answering all of my questions (and there were quite a few that I had!). Without his help I would not have been able to sort my problem so easily... especially if I had to communicate back and forth by letter!. The solution we arrived at was agreed by both parties and whilst it was not quite the 'quick fix' I would have hoped for it was definately a step forward towards helping me clean up my cr
  3. Hello. I have sent a letter to the ICO as Experian have completely refused to removed the linked address..even though there is NO debt/default/late payment recorded on my credit file. I will keep this thread updated.... (Also ... anyone who reads this I can personally recommend the help of Lee from Vodafone...he was extremely helpful in when it came to sorting out a problem I had with my credit file/Vodafone. It would have taken so much longer to sort .. had I kept having to communicate via letter). Keep up the good work Lee. Thanks.
  4. Hello Lee. As ever you have been most helpful however I was hoping that Vodafone (as a company) could have done more to assist/help rectify my problem. I have after all been a loyal and reliable customer with Vodafone for a number of years now, apart from this one lapse in payment for reasons previously explained. Thanks again, Steven
  5. Hello. Before I say anything else I would just like to say that Lee@Vodafone has been really helpful with the above problem and I thank him for this. That said however, I am not overly pleased with the response Vodafone has arrived at. Let me explain (I know some of you will have no sympathy however you do not know the full circumstances behind this & for personal reasons I am not explaining the reasons why the account fell into default on here). The account fell into default at a stressful time in my life(!) when I could simply not afford to carry on with the payments. Vodafon
  6. Thanks for the help with the 'linked address' post Lee. I was just wondering if there have been any developments with regard to the questions /accompanying letter I sent on the 8th April. Regards - Steven
  7. Thanks Lee. I will wait until six years has passed (only one more month to wait) then write to Experian asking that they remove this information. After reading other posts however it seems that Experian can be quite stubborn on this and mainly refuse until eight years has passed. If they do refuse (after six years) I will complain to the Information Commissioner and see how that goes. Thanks again. ________________________________________________________________ Please could you keep me posted as to how the Vodafone query is going re my other post. Thanks.
  8. Thanks Lee. That does help. Guess I will probably have to wait until the eight years are up before it is removed. however ... I have read that Experian will delete after six years in certain circumstances. Thanks again - Steven
  9. Hello. Just to keep everyone informed. Lee@Vodafone is doing a great job in helping me sort out the problem. I will post the final outcome when everything is sorted. Steven
  10. Hello. I have spoken to Activ Kapital re the linked address. They say they 'dont know when or even if linked addresses are removed from a persons credit file'. Not sure if I actually believe they do not known as as I spoke to the 'Credit File Team' at AK. AK state that linked addresses show 'a record of where a person has lived' and 'shouldn't have any effect on my credit rating/ability to obtain credit' and 'by showing the link they have not shown any incorrect information as I have lived at both addresses concerned' (that bit is correct). Surely companies who search my credit file wi
  11. Hi. That did help. Thanks... i had to read it a few times to get it straight though. Steven (There was an extra post before this one .. but seemingly they deleted it!!)
  12. Hello Lee. I have sent an email detailing my problem to the email address you provided. I realise tomorrow is Bank Holiday Monday and you will not be available until Tuesday as you said. Thats not a problem. Thanks again for your help and I look forward to your response.Maybe now I will actually get things sorted out. Steven
  13. Hello. Thanks kiptower & Lee. I have sent an email to Vodafone briefly explaining my problem (I can elaborate/provide more detailed information if required as it would only let me use 900 characters). Also it would not let me send the email via the link Lee provided (I tried twice .. but it kept saying to contact the administrators??) Anyway I sent the email via the Vodafone main web site. In the title I included WRT135 and the link to my problem on the Consumer Forum website. Hope this is ok. Please let me know if it did not reach you Lee. Thanks again. Any help you c
