  1. I recently met the gentlemen from Burlington. They were acting on an incorrect writ of control in that Burlington had completed the application for this writ naming me when the underlying tribunal judgement was against a corporate employer ( I was a director and shareholder of the company against whom the judgement was made. They came to me the day before christmas, would not accept that there was an error in their paperwork. ( This error is a burlington theme as the ID of their collector was itself out of date!!) to cut a long story short, I applied to the court who confirmed the error in the paperwork. Burlington wriggled to suggest this error was not their fault. ..they blamed the court ( bad idea) the lower court, their client and even me. They needed a court order before returning my money to me. At all points they showered me with threats and there are major discrepancies between their witness statements and those offered by me based on my attendance at the visit. I intend to go through the regulators as the contempt for the legal process and the poor control and paperwork supplied is clearly actionable and I would be most pleased to hear from others who have had experience of Burlington ( also known as Marstons) as I would not like to present an unrepresentative case to the regulating bodies.
  2. A few years Ago a phone contract was purchased through one of A1 Comms online companies, The contract we where told was after a credit check and an agreement to sign a 2 year contract with O2. Now after 14 months my son wanted to change network so we called the service provider and they said to end our contract we had to pay an outstanding amount which we did. Over a year went past and all was good until my wife got a call from Burlington saying we owed them over £350 we told them to send us a copy of any paperwork and I was told by an "English Person" in some weird tongue that he could not send us paperwork as they did not have our address and would we confirm it. I told my wife not to speak to them as it must be a [problem] however over the next two weeks she got numerous calls and then BINGO they sent us a letter (they must have found the address). We contacted O2 and they said under our credit agreement with them we had paid it off in full and there was no monies outstanding. I then find out that in the small print it says A1comms can charge us if we end our contract early, when I contacted them they said it was because A1comms subsidised the handset of which I said "Rollocks" as the amount I had paid to O2 was more than enough to cover the handset and airtime + commission and we got NO DISCOUNT from O2 paying it early. Now I can buy the phone NEW now sim free for £100 so why are they charging me £350+ when they would have got no where near that in the first place. Its not as if A1comms called us first and said "you owe us money" they just past it on to Burlington Parasites Group which I find remarkable. What can I do as £350+ is NOT a reasonable charge and is NOT what they would have got from O2. Cheers Nick
