Vodafone customers in the UK can apparently expect a significant reduction in spam calls, after the mobile operator installed new barring technology across its network. During pre-release tests, Vodafone claimed it had blocked 425,000 nuisance and [problem] calls in a single day, while over the course of a week-long trial, nuisance call attempts to its customers dropped to under a thousand. The perpetrators, Vodafone said, "realised their calls could not enter the network." http://arstechnica.co.uk/business/2016/09/vodafone-blocks-majority-of-spam-calls-across-its-network/

Hi all on CAG, Sorry about the header, while it is not majority but it is still over 40% of the total! I am new to this forum and have been doing some reading for the past 2 days. I have been contacted by Property Debt Collection Limited (PDC) for 2 years worth of Property service charges on 2 accounts which amounted to around £3900! (a quarter of it was not owed by us but by the previous owner). However the total was taken to £6300 due to various charges (which means about £2400 or the charge is about 70% of the original debt was just extra charge!) Here are some of them listed out: Debt Referral Fee - £120 x 3 (it was charged twice on one of the account) court fees - £120 x 1, £95 x 1 Admin Fee - Late Payment: £30 x 2 PDC Fee- £150 x 2 Costs- £655.80 x 2 Solicitor Fee - £80 x 2 I am concerned the most about the "Costs" part (that's all they put on the statement) which amounts to £1310! My question is: are these charges legal or enforceable (from my reading so far, it seems no to most)? Any advice on what to do next as they are pressing for payment and threaten to get court judgement? Any help/recommendation is appreciated.
