  1. Please can anyone offer me some advice, I owe 12K to welcome and I am paying them back at a reduced rate, however everytime I get a phonecall off them they ask for date of birth, so I give it to them and some will say that it is fine and other people will say that we have a different date of birth for you, but then go one to talk about my account. Am I right in saying that this is against DPA as if I give a different DOB to what they have on their records they should not continue with the conversation? Also how far back can you go to reclaim PPI I believe I too
  2. Hi all. I have a letter here which is being sent to the company in question over clear breaches of the data protection act with regards to distributing my medical report within the company without my consent. I know it's a little hard to read with the XXX's but please have a look with regards to any amendments, issues that you think would help. Many thanks for your time, good luck with all your cases and God bless BB To XXX I am writing to make a formal complaint against XXX. My complaint is that XXX has: Breached the data protection act 1998
  3. Affidavit's Wanted Please Preparing for the case ahead, clydesdale I know will use the "it was only a one of administration error" line alongside their proposed defence. I want to show the court that infact failure to provide documentation under section 7 of the DPA 1998 is rife across the industry but in particular within this bank. I am trying to collect as many affidavits from people who have banked with clydesdale and had problems of this nature to use as evidence that this is not a 1 time occurance. 3 Years and still no data from them. Anyone willing to help?

  5. I have TV with buy as you view and everything was going fine until i got a new "account manager" who ignores all notes on my account ie:- DO NOT ATTEND PROPERTY IF ACCOUNT HOLDER NOT PRESENT being the main one. i am the only person on the CCA and HP agreements. there fore he should only deal with me well he attends my property while i am at work and he proceeds to tell my partners mum:- How much he is taking from the meter how much needs to be in the meter for next visit how much is left to clear the account all this information is divulged without my authority.
  6. Hi - I had a phone call this morning from Vanquis (yes, I know!), which went something like this:- Them: Hello, is that Janie1962? Me: Yes - who's this? Them: Vanquis - you're £16 over your credit limit! Why is this? Me: What?! Them: You need to make a payment today with your debit card. I'm not disputing the fact I may be over my limit - what annoys me is that they never took me through any security checks before disclosing the problem. When I said I thought she should have gone through security first, she replied that WAS security! Any input gratefully received!
  7. Hi, There is much grumbling about how credit reference agencies store data and share it on here but little resolve on the issue. Lately I have been turned down for some basic financial services so have checked out the DPA to see what the score is regarding data sharing. The DPA seems to deal with two things mainly which are: 1. Data controllers right to hold data and the way they store it 2.
