you really need to lodge a complaint with Otelo.

 

they are quite good from the experiences I am aware of but as advosed before it would be better if you could get a deadlock letter from talk.

 

I would be sending a final letter to talk talk.

 

I would be asking for:

 

Removing all theire services if active

refunding any payments that have been taken ( this i would be worried if you are paying by dd as someone has your bank details)

and removing any info on you from their systems

 

advised them that due to lack of response from them you now require the above in 14 days and if they fail then you want them to send you a letter detailing each point and then you will lodge a compaint with Otelo.

slteady use all extension but the problem with otello the average i can get is 70 pounds in compsensation it won't cover just for the fee to get myself reconnected to BT and the endless letter and phone call ihad to make to sort out this mess and the cosntant demand of payment i have received form talk talkfor a service i have never requested in the first place.

 

 

although talk talk acknowldege a breach of data they seems that is not thier problem so they told me i won't be eligilbe fo rhe reminder afo the bill but what about the money i already paid for it plus the connection fee etc... ..... it cost me a lot ot money to return to my old ISP and BT 'cause someone use my name fraudlently adn talk talk haven't seek my express consent ( term and condiotion). i think i will be better to start with a county court claim but i am not too sure how to word it i have a lot of concrete evidence supply by talk talk form their SAR

then i send another letter saying i was taking that i as partial settlement i as i feel the data protection breach is more serious and also they promised me to refund the SAR fee and cost of letter over the phone but there was no mention of that in the letter (if i did received that i would have left it and moved on bu talk talk think otherwise ! ) then today i received this letter from talk talk i like the big final demand when it is the first demand have received form them

I think with you refusing their offer to clear balance the haven't applied the £62.

 

IMO if they waived the £70 and cleared the account and that's was me finished with them, I woul dhave been happy with that.

 

I cannot give you any advise on court action as I wouldn't know what you could take them to court for.

 

re the DPA, you could send a complaint to the information commisioner but i am not sure of how much of breech they have done.

agreed well i made a SAR to them in december 2008 they responded mid-march 2009 .

 

well in toward the end of october i order online a landline phone to talk talk through their website

then i received confirmation by them in writing

to my surprise when i received a bill in december , i was cahrged for about 90 pounds ????? i was shocked so i rang up taltk talk got through to no one as ususal . So i log on to my bill online to see my package has changed from a landline phone to an LLU package . i made alot of phone call, i went to their forums , a customer services did a research without callimg me or confirming or even asking my personal detail !

 

i called OFCOM and Otelo who told me to put everything in writing . so idid and hold and behold someone from their CEO office called to tell em they are taking seriosuly my compliant etcccc.. then she realise that i didn't have a mancunian accent but a rather strong french accent. so again where is my express consent !

 

in my SAR i asked also how they get my express consent i am still waiting an answer to that question. but so far they told me their express consent is when these man and woman use my name it was ok for them ot enter into a contract . i beg to differ as i haven't signed anything nor did i recieved letter confirming this ( even when asked in my SAR) etc....

 

 

but t she kept goign about blaming my carer/support worker etc... they were adamant that i have order a braodband to which i didn't. theri excuse is that that this manadn woman have respoinded to the securoity qeustion which mainly consisted on asking my name DOB and address and nothing else .. this is all on tape provided by talk talk through my SAR.

 

i made a SAR in december 2008 to which i asked for all sales telephone as wellas transcript and i got that

well that took me a back as i am not english and not from the UK soi do not have a mancunian acent and there is no woman living at my home . Moreover, in their contract there is a clause saying that before entering into contract they must seek my express consent .. so i wonder how they have got my express consent .without approaching me first regarding this broadband services .... when i raised my concern to them they tried to blame the carers and suport worker comming tohelp me. towhich i found somewhat shocking.

since they realise that i haven't ordered anything from them over the phone then well they started making excuses this that our SAR responses has some incorrect information etc .. ... ... i have enough toprove that they went ahead with anorder to whcih i did not give my express consent and they did not seek it asa per their clause of contract ... if you llok at the letter it did not mention braodband services ....

 

in my SAR i asked also to r recived all eltter sent to me with proof of posting .. none came back !

 

a nafter researching thgourt the net i came to realize that i am not the only one that talk talk has done that.

 

in the meantime i had to pay extra to have my line reconnected to BT and to my old provider O2 to which i was then within my 12 contract.

 

my point of line is here if it snot a breach of data protection then what it is ? misselling ? fraud ?
