Hi there, I hope this is posted in the right place.


Back in mid 2005 I phoned Vodafone to cancel my pay monthly phone (Out of contract) & was told I needed to send this request by letter which I did. At this time a PAYG sim was bought & the Monthly sim taken out & never used again.


About 2 weeks later Vodafone sent me a letter saying I hadn't signed my request to end the contract & could I send it again (I was sure I had signed it & they didn't send it back for me to sign).


I called them & said "Look I've just lost my job & you are fully aware I have wanted to cancel since my 1st call to you" I sent another request to cancel & thought no more about it.


Now there were lots of other things going on in my life at this time (Inc bank closing my account)& I wasn't always getting/reading my mail , I think there were some further letters from Vodafone which were disposed of unopened.


Anyway bottom line is that after receiving nothing from early 2006 to December 2008 when Lowell pop up saying they've bought the "Debt" of £101.77 & threatening me with famine ,flood, pestilence etc etc.


I can only assume that Vodafone didn't receive my SIGNED letter or again chose to ignore it & the money is for returned monthly direct debits for a phone that wasn't used or wanted.


I assume that a CCA request wont apply here so what ,if any, is my course of action?


Any help & advice would be much appreciated.

It's up to Lowlife to prove the debt exists, so sent the Leeds losers this;



Dear Sir/Madam


Account no:


You have contacted me/us regarding the account with the above reference number, which you claim is owed by myself/ourselves.


I/we would point out that I/we have no knowledge of any such debt being owed to (insert company name).


I am/we are familiar with the Office of Fair Trading Debt Collection Guidance which states that it unfair to send demands for payment to an individual when it is uncertain that they are the debtor in question.


I/we would also point out that the OFT say under the Guidance that it is unfair to pursue third parties for payment when they are not liable. In not ceasing collection activity whilst investigating a reasonably queried or disputed debt you are using deceptive/and or unfair methods.


Furthermore ignoring and/or disregarding claims that debts have been settled or are disputed and continuing to make unjustified demands for payment amounts to physical/psychological harassment.


I/we would ask that no further contact be made concerning the above account unless you can provide evidence as to my/our liability for the debt in question.


I/we await your written confirmation that this matter is now closed. Otherwise I will have no option but to make a complaint to the trading standards department and consider informing the OFT of your actions.


I/we look forward to your reply.


**Edit to suit**


Remember, don’t sign the letter.
