  1. Really need some advice as to what to do first,, do I call Lowell ? How do I respond to the forms I know there is a deadline we have to meet. My boyfriend has received a claim form from a Vodafone contract he had no choice but to cancel due to the recession, he had no work and got himself in a bit of a mess which he is still in the process of sorting out. At the time he did visit the citizens advice who helped him, they advised he offer to pay Vodafone £1 per month which they declined. I have copies of most of his bills from 2005 onwards, sadly the copies h
  2. Vodafone have recently charged me for going over my myfi data allowance without giving me notification that I am about to exceed my allowance as they have done before via the app for the device. I have now been billed for £245 for over using me device without my knowledge. I spoke to the complaints department today who have told me that they can reduce the bill by £44! and that I should have self managed my allowance by checking my app despite me telling them that the app is not working. They pointed out that my bill will increase due to late payment (I refused to pay ) and that my deta
  3. My son was called by Vodafone and told that they would like to offer him a free gift as a valued customer, and said they would send him a new tablet. It was only when he received his next bill that he discovered he was now being charged £19.99pcm for a data plan for the tablet. We called them to complain and the lady apologised profusely and said she had removed the data plan from his account, and raised a credit for the amount already billed. My son duly returned the tablet in the envelope they provided. This was in Sept, he has been billed for the data plan every month since. On th
  4. Hi, I've received a letter from the county court business centre in regards to a supposed outstanding amount on a vodafone contract. The amount is for £1248.72. It says the defendant failed to maintain contractual payments under the rems of the account agreement. I haven't had a Vodafone account in over 11 years. What do I need to do?
  5. Hello I SAR'd VODAFONE for a debt that is on my credit file that i believe is not mine. I asked for SAR but they are asking for proof of my ID and address etc. I have only ever lived at one address, i told them that the credit file and the information they have put on the CRA's is the same as the address they are sending the SAR, but now the time has elapsed for them sending this to me. I don't want to send them any ID as I know they don't have my ID and won't send me any contract or nothing. There also sent it to a DCA, and I SAR'd them, they said its taking
  6. I also obtained this from them regarding a JD Williams account. It does not makes sense. Debt written off. No copy of contract, can't remove default as information was correct at the time but they can't send or have copies of nothing..? letter below including the reply from Exuifax, which tells me that the dca can't leave a default if it buys the debt? so something really wrong here.
  7. My mother has a phone contract with Vodafone, she's nearly at the end of the agreement and she would like to cancel it as she has no interest entering into another. She called them to cancel and to pay off any remaining amounts, however they cannot access her account because the main account holders name has been changed, nobody knows anything about this, the name in question is an Arabic name that nobody can pronounce for a start. Vodafone have essentially been useless and unhelpful, we're concerned that her personal data has been compromised, surely this is a breach of the Genera
  8. Hi, My son received a CC Summons from Lowell for and old Vodafone broadband account when he was in bad relationship with a woman. he has not dealt with this and has stuck head in sand, ex has nowt and only know he got letter in March from lowell offering 20% discount then another in June saying something like 30 days to prevent legal action which he also ignored. Next thing CCS Issue date 25 July arrives at mum and dads house with his name on it. Any help appreaciated please! Thanks
  9. My wife has a CCJ to the value of roughly £800 from vodafone, containing what i presume would be a large value of early termination fees. She has made one payment towards this, as she only became aware of it last month (dont ask, burying the head in the sand...) Now, ive seen some members on here stating that OFCOM are against early termination fees being included in a CCJ/default? Is that correct? maybe dx100uk you know more? as its one of your posts referencing termination charges and mobile contracts that i have referenced
  10. I have received a pre court paperwork from Lowell Solicitors to fill out and send back. I am disputing the debt as belonging to them but not sure what I need to do next. the debt was assigned/Sold to Lowell 18 months ago they are claiming the full amount outstanding to Vodafone, but on checking my credit file bot Lowell and Vodafone are marking my credit file as the debt belonging to them. the other thing I would like to get hold of is how much Lowell paid for the debt because this debt is subject to VAT and if they only paid a percentage of the debt, they can not claim full
  11. Hi, has anyone ever upgraded their phone with Vodafone and then decided to hand the device back during their 30 day cooling period? If so do you know if they can offer you special deals for other phones? I’m thinking of returning my iPhone 8 and getting an iPhone X, thanks
  12. Hi, has anyone ever upgraded their phone on the Vodafone website and then a week or so later they would like to change it? Iv got the iPhone 8 but would like the iPhone X, I’m just wondering if anyone has done this by contacting the returns team and they offer some sort of exchange as in can they give me the new phone with a similar deal to what I’m paying just now and then return this phone once it’s set up and get the upfront cost refunded also? many thanks
  13. Good Afternoon, I am new to this site and after popping Lowell in my search engine, this amazing site popped up! After reading several posts on this forum I have plucked up the courage to post and ask for help. I had a dispute with vodaphone over two years ago after been a customer with them for 15 years. It all started when they changed their billing system and did not take payment for over 12 months and then I received a massive bill .. they continued to provide service until eventually they restricted use of my sons phone (on my bill) and then after three months put it
  14. in October 2016 I've started a 2 years contract with Vodafone but after half a year I couldn't keep up with the payment and didn't pay since then. I do plan on getting rid of the debt once I'm fully back on track, I can't afford it at the minute and hoped I still have some time before any legal action can be taken. Recently I started receiving letters from Lowell Financial Ltd, headlining with "Pre-Legal Assesment". Do I have to be worried about any legal action? My Vodafone contract ends in Oct 2018 in theory. Are they able to file a CCJ even if they bought a debt of a co
  15. Hello, I am starting a new thread here after discovering some things on my credit record. The story is: In 2013 whilst I was a Vodafone UK mobile phone customer, a Vodafone phone agent advised me that if I purchased a call package which gave a discount to Intl calls made outwith the UK, this package would cover Russia, which was the country I was going to make calls from. When I returned from that trip in October 2013, I found a bill of £122, increased to £203.70 by Dec 2013. I even offered to pay some portion of the £122 in instalments and paid ~£15 per month as a goodwill gesture.
  16. Hi there, I would like to get some advises regarding Vodafone had shared my personal information regarding (full name, address, DOB, email address) Undeniable, once a contract has been formed in between Vodafone, if without monthly payment, Vodafone will pass the information and shared with Debt Collection Agency because Vodafone appointed DCA to collect the debt on behalf. Vodafone claimed that, that clause was in the contract. (Thats what I have been told by Vodafone after the incident.) However, I do not owe Vodafone any money nor any outstanding amount, however, my account
  17. On the 1st March I gave notice to my old broadband provider (Virgin) and signed up with Vodafone. The agreement for this service included the transfer of my phone number from Virgin to them. My service allegedly went active on the 13th march, but my broadband wasn't working until the 21st March. Whilst on the phone to them (my old cable line with virgin) I asked when the number would be transferred across, and was told it hadn't even been requested. I was rather ****ed off by this, but they assured me it was being done there and then. about 10 days later and still nothing,
  18. Think I might be fighting a losing battle with this one but I'm coming to the end of my contract and checked my phone bill just to see what I pay out. Dont normally check the details I just pay it as I trusted that it was correct Really shocked to see throughout my contract i've been paying insurance which I never agreed to. Contacted Vodafone who said tough as I should have checked the phone bill. They also said I took the insurance out in store. I know I didnt take out this insurance and my query is can anything be done to get a refund? Surely they must have a signed c
  19. Hi everyone I'm hoping for some advice to resolve an ongoing issue with Vodafone. My next planned action is to write to Ofcom but I would appreciate any guidance as to the best approach. In short, I'm a former Vodafone customer, I recently discovered that they have trashed my credit rating without communicating with me. My attempts to resolve this have so far proved futile, despite contacting the Ombudsman. The background (and I'll try to keep this as brief as I can) is as follows. I had been a satisfied Vodafone personal customer under the same mobile numbe
  20. Hi everyone, I'm hoping for a bit of advice on this. My son has an account with Vodafone. He is 19 and the whole thing has turned into a bit of a nightmare! He lost his phone last year but continued to make payments on his account. He made a payment in July and then received a letter in September about the account being in default. As he is only 19, I have been dealing with the matter on his behalf and we have been passed from pillar to post with various people as he no longer has the phone. When I found out that the account was going into default, I phoned Vodafon
  21. Hello, I am looking for some advice as Vodafone have treated me very unfairly and I am disgusted with their customer service. In April 2017 I called to give my 30 days cancellation notice as I had a new phone on order from a different carrier. I was told I could cancel my direct debit as I would get a letter with the final bill amount. Towards the end of July I received a letter stating I owed £112, I called them to query why it was such a high amount and to make payment. The advisor said it was a termination fee, I asked if I could make payment next month and he checked with the bi
  22. Vodafone mis-sold me contracts on my account and have refused to cancel them as requested. This has been going on since June last year, even the Ombudsman didn't seem to see where I was coming from legally, but agreed Vodafone had made errors in handling my account and complaint and there was a shortfall in service. The Ombudsman also told me about an invalid charge on the account (which Vodafone have not admitted to me) and a voicemail I was apparently left regarding a credit to the account they were making, but neither has appeared and reduced the balance I'm being asked to pay. If a comp
  23. Hello, So what do I do now? Start paying £1 to Vodafone or does Lowell now actually own this debt? Or do i just leave it as it is for now? I mean, the debt is mine, was defaulted Aug 2016, and I would like to pay it off but can only afford £1/month. Lowell_Vodafone_CAG.pdf
  24. I love Vodafone, although a lot of society has had a fair few issues with them as a Service Provider and even I sometimes query why I am with them. Somewhat now, we need to take a closer look at one of their products and how it affects you. Yesterday I attended store and picked up a shiny new device but something that caught my eye on the paperwork I'd signed was Vodafone Securenet... So what is it? Its a security product designed to protect you against threats while using Vodafone's network. Its built into the network already and doesnt require an app to download i
  25. Hi. I was on last 3 months of sim only contract, got in touch with Vodafone on the chat to get new device. Was told that they will put me on 24 month contract with iPhone 7 for £60/month with £9 discount, so I would pay £51 for 24 months, was happy with that so agreed to it. 'The other deal I have is for you, The deal is 24 months Apple iPhone 7 128GB (PRODUCT)RED Data 16GB, Minutes and text Unlimited, Take your home plan abroad Vodafone Global Roaming With the line rental of £60 and with the discount it will be £51.
