  1. Hi, In 2016, having gone six months without a bill and having complained online to BG I signed up with Eon to replace my existing electricity supplier for my business. This was following a phone call from a rep from BG asking me to sign up with them & confirming that I did not, in fact, have a contract with them. Lo and behold my supplier, British Gas, then wrote to me to state I could not leave as there was an outstanding bill, a tactic which Eon told me they often employ. I queried this and told them all the steps I had taken to resolve the matter but got nowhere,
  2. I'm on ESA, I am currently having mental health issues, my doctor writes fit notes to say so and I am seeing the Community Psychiatric Nurse fortnightly. I sent my ESA50 away many months ago (stupidly forgot to make a copy to keep) and have been on ESA longer than the supposed 13 weeks assessment period. First it was a total faff involving multiple phonecalls to them in order to get an appointment in a suitable place. But anyway, they have my ESA50, fit notes all sent, I have asked for it to be recorded in advance etc etc. I turn up really early. Was fighting a panic attack for days,
  3. My old and trusted T-Mobile shop was closed when they were taken over by the EE conglomerate. Business transferred to a dingy EE shop. Although this shop is busy it is staffed by ONLY TWO people one of which seems not to be fully trained. Waiting time for service is deplorable as it takes them in EXCESS OF 1 HOUR to sell a phone. What sort of people have this time to waste just to get a mobile. I'm considering invoicing their HQ for my time standing there during my visits. I'm thinking about asking Santa for a new phone but don't know where to go after reading all the complaints abou
  4. I've only been with BT since the 26th June and they have literally made a mess of absolutely everything! First their system failed to process my original online order. This only came to light when my equipment didn't arrive and phone to inquire. As a result my order was delayed by 2 days. They re-processed my order incorrectly, completely different package than I had ordered. Not sure why but I received the equipment three times!! They changed my phone number (which I've had for 23 years) despite me asking them not to, they promised to reinstate it. This promised on th

  6. Hello All, I'm writing in hope that some one can provide some advise and guidance. Today we have received a requisition request from the courts to attend court in April for failing to notify the DVLA of 'Change of vehicle ownership' However, we have the acknowledgment letter and reference number from the DVLA confirming receipt and notification of details being updated on DVLA Records. Obviously we are going to make contact with the DVLA, should we also send a copy of the above to the Designated Officer at the courts? What if DVLA contest despite us having proof? Thanks for
  7. Well folks, back in October 2014, I was seeking a good new computer and at PC World in Plymouth I came across am Asus All-in-One ET2020 PC for just over £300. I purchased the new computer after thinking about it for a few days, also decided to take the care plan at £4 per month believing that it would give me all round protection should anything happen. on the 17th February 2015, the worst did happen when the PC developed a fault with the TV tuner card. I duly took it back armed with my care plan agreement and all receipts to the PC World Plymouth store I was greet
  8. I applied for DLA almost 14 months ago and its been nothing but a disaster. Firstly, me and my representative filled it in and I got a rejection letter almost instantly, so we appealed it. But during this 14 months, its been nothing but stress for me. Not in any particular order, but these some of the things that have happened: :They got my application mixed up with another guy called George, who had also applied for DLA :They claimed we had appealed after the time limit but, we proved them wrong as we had postal evidence from when we sent the appeal in :The
  9. I have had problems previously with royal mail and their in-ability to deliver letters on time I several months ago sent a letter 1st class and to sign for it took 7 working days to deliver it, and the address was not even 100 miles away from where i posted it , After several attempts to complain to the post office/royal mail i eventually got a book of 6. 1st class stamps More recently i had to return a faulty item to an address in Denmark so i used Airsure and payed the extra to cover the value, The tracking provided wasn't what they advertise, according to the royal mail tracking my c
  10. I'm in the middle of quite a few PPI negotiations with various credit card companies that I have got involved with over the years. One of them is American Express. They made a written settlement offer to me and I signed the acceptance and returned it. I thought that was the end of it. I am now waiting for the eight weeks it allegedly takes for them to refund the money. Today I received the following letter from them. Thank you for your signed acceptance offer received by this office on 21 May 2012. In the final response my colleague explained that he would offer you a premiums refun
