    • sorry it just read so much like the business stories we have here.   so, the bottom line is that GNE want more money then what is owed you've involved Ofgem you say? and you are awaiting the SAR return.   it's quite std practice to involve DCA, and thats nothing to bother about.   you have a record of the initial correct move in reading?  
    • Hi Dx, thank you for your input.   1. Yes, I have paid the agreed direct debit amount set up when the contract was entered until the point of cancellation.   2. Thank you for your suggestion, I have found their bank details and can now pay what I think I owe.   3. Quite simply if they take action and correct the billing then I think GNE do not seek to cause me unjustifiable loss.   If instead of correcting the billing they simply move to collect the unsubstantiated debt then they have made a false representation (the bills), dishonestly, knowing that the false representation might be untrue (based on the information they have already received as well as information provided by Ofgem and no doubt their own accounts) with intent to make a gain for themselves and to cause loss to myself.   In addition to the above the supplier occupies a position in which they are expected to safeguard, or not to act against, the financial interests of their customers. (I.e. provide accurate billing) by claiming the debt they have abused that position, dishonestly, intending by that abuse to make a gain/cause a loss.   With regards to the topic, this is a domestic account not a business account.

    • so have you paid anything since nov 2019?   surely it should be quite easy to discover their bank details. then pay what you think you owe by bacs.   not sure where you acquaint fraud with the involvement of a dca to chase you.?   totally powerless and not bailiffs.    
    • you guessed correct  safe to ignore everyone.   def never use the phone ever to any DCA they are not bailiffs and have zero legal powers on any debt, no matter what it's type   dx

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Hi

 

Just had a call on my mobile from 0845 4122750 which is apparently T-Mobile sales. Told them I couldn't talk now but he said that my customer value has just gone up as I pay my bills on time and could he ring me back tonight with some offers? He can if he wants but if I answer it, that's a different matter!

 

Googled the number and it seems that it is the sales team responsible for flogging broadband?

 

Why don't sales teams realise that if I wanted to deal with a smarmy salesman, I'd ring them!

 

Might have a bet with myself as to how many times they will ring before they realised I'm not going to answer them.

They're so annoying at times! They continously rang me despite me not answering any of their calls as they were from an unknown number. I eventually answered one of them and explained I didn't have a computer and they soon stopped ringing me!

If you don't like dealing with salespeople, get your name taken off the marketing sales list. When you sign up to any contract now, online they have tick boxes, or in the contract they have a section to remove you from marketing. If you don't do this you will get marketting calls. Also TPS Registration will stop unsolicited sales calls.

If in doubt, contact a qualified insured legal professional (or my wife... she knows EVERYTHING)

 

Or send a cheque or postal order payable to Reclaim the Right Ltd.

All of your suggestions have been carried out an long time ago but it seems like T-mobile ignore your requests and because I have my mobile phone with them, he seemed to think it was ok to ring me and tell me that I had become a valued customer and was eligible for special offers!

 

I'm quite upset as even though I'd become valued, he's never rang me back!

 

I had to report one company to TPS a week or two ago. Pure Insurance kept ringing our home number asking for someone that had never lived there, even though we kept stating this and asking for our number to be removed from their database. They soon removed it when I reported them and emailed their customer services advising them that they had been reported!

TPS registration only works for sales calls within this country. As soon as I signed up for it I was plagued by calls from abroad from BT.

By any chance did you register for BT Privacy at home at any time? If you did they say something along the lines of "Is it OK for us to keep you up to date with new promotions". Also TPS stops "Unsolicited" calls, IE calls from people that you have no business relationship with. If you are with BT then you do have a business relationship and you need to ask them to remove you from marketing.

If you asked for no marketing calls over 2 weeks ago (I believe companies are allowed up to 2 weeks to get your name removed from all databases) then follow their complaints procedure Below :-

 

Step 1. Put your complaint in writing and send it to the following T-Mobile address:

 

The Customer Resolutions Team

T-Mobile (UK) Limited

Camberwell Way

Sunderland

Tyne and Wear

SR3 3XN

The letter must include:

A) Your name

B) Your address

C) Your T-Mobile account number and /or mobile telephone number

D) Details of your complaint

E) Your resolution requirements

F) A daytime contact telephone number

 

Step 2. T-Mobile will acknowledge receipt within 3 working days of receiving your letter.

 

Step 3. T-Mobile will provide a full written response to your complaint within 14 days of receipt of your letter. Subject to point 4 below, the complaints procedure will be at an end.

 

Step 4. If the letter from T-Mobile makes an offer of settlement, or it includes a proposal to resolve your complaint, you must respond to it in writing within 14 days of its issue, again addressed to The Customer Resolutions Team.

 

Step 5. If you do not respond to the letter from T-Mobile within 14 days of its issue, the complaints procedure shall be at an end. If you respond by accepting the offer of settlement or proposal to resolve the complaint, T-Mobile shall within 7 days of receipt of your letter either:

Reply to your letter acknowledging your rejection, upon which the complaints procedure shall be at an end, or;

Reply to your letter putting forward new proposals in respect to which the provisions of points 4 onwards above shall apply.

 

You may also obtain independent advice from the Citizens Advice Bureau, Consumer Advice Centre, Trading Standards Departments or other telecoms user organisations recognised by the Secretary of State. Whilst we are happy to work together with any of the above independent organisations, if you decide you need their help to resolve your complaint, we would always recommend that you contact us first as most problems can be resolved quickly this way.

 

If after discussion with T-Mobile you are still unhappy with any aspects of our services, we have established, in consultation with the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, a straightforward and convenient procedure for independent, dispute resolution. This process may be used where we are unable to resolve your complaint after a period of 12 weeks from the date of your initial complaint has passed or if we write to you at any time informing you that we cannot resolve the complaint.

 

If the amount you are claiming does not exceed £5,000, subject to consent by T-Mobile, you have the right to put the dispute to this adjudication process.

 

Details of how to apply to the T-Mobile adjudication services can be obtained by writing to the legal department at:

T-Mobile (UK) Limited

Hatfield Business Park

Hatfield

Hertfordshire

AL10 9BW

 

Or by email to arbitration.scheme@t-mobile.co.uk

I only registered with TPS and it was some time ago. I stopped getting the typical double glazing sort of calls but started getting a lot of calls from abroad which I'd never had a problem with previously. These stopped of their own accord after a few months. I assumed that having registered with TPS that I'd caused my number to be added to yet another list and sold on.

The fact you are a customer of T-Mob allows them to call you irrespective of your TPS request. You have to tell T-Mob themselves of your wish not to receive marketing communications.
