Hi everyone

 

I have been applying for a mortgage and been credit checked - it was refused so i obtained a copy of my experian report. It shows that T Mobile have placed a default on my account for the sake of £10.00.

 

About 18 months ago my contract was coming to an end and i received some texts that were not requested and not authorised - it was a fraudulent Co that had got hold of my details. I contacted T Mobile and told them i was not paying and that this money had been obtained fraudulently - i had lots and lots of conversations with them and all they would do was tell me to contact the Co and take it up with them.

 

Of course this Co wouldnt even speak to me let alone refund the money.

 

I received a letter from a debt collector but didnt keep a copy - i phoned them and told them to take me to Court because i wasnt paying it. I never heard anything else.

 

I have just written to them to ask them to remove it but what should i do if they refuse. I cant believe that they have buggered up my credit rating for a tenner. Im so cross.

 

Any ideas anyone - Im prepared to take it to Court if need be but need some help as to what to do next

 

Thanks

T-Mobile complaints procedure:

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

 

The Customer Resolutions Team

T-Mobile (UK) Limited

6 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

Alternatively, you can obtain further information directly from CISAS by writing to them at:

CISAS

C/o Dispute Resolution Services

The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators

12 Bloomsbury Square

London, WC1A 2LP

 

Website: Home : CIArb

Telephone: 0207 421 7432

Or by email to kkorubo@arbitrators.org or to mekpenyong@arbitrators.org

 

This is T-Mobiles complaints procedure taken from their code of practice.

 

 

You are going to have a battle I feel. Typical mobile companies argument is "this is a true reflection of how your account was run, and you accepted that we could record the information in our terms and conditions" so you need to make sure that they understand you are prepaired to go as far as court, and you didn't owe the £10. You should also make sure that you mention that they are breaking OFT debt collection guidelines requesting money whilst it is in dispute.


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.

I dont really care about the money i just want the default gone. What do you reckon my chances are? Should i phone and beg or write - I havent sent them a letter yet?

Realistically, even if you paid up - the defualt will still show on your file just shown as 'satisfied' until the 6 years are up. You also fell into the trap beloved of debt collectors...

 

'Take me to court' was an oft stated challenge - but if you give them the right to modify your credit file, they don;t need to - they cna give you a hard time and have their actions unckecked or verified by a court. You will always be disadvantages - and since the debt will be sold on to eager companes willing totake a chance that they will make you pay, there's never any need to take you to court. They network mght get 50% of its debt cleared, and brand you as a defaulter. They're quite happy with that.

 

Unless you're able to identify an error in their amout or proceedures, you'll be stuck with it.

probably a bit off topic

ive just ended a 3 year contact with tmobile

2x18mths

ive noticed theyve been charging me 3 quid a month for paying by internet banking.

18mths £54

ive not had final bill yet should be no more than 25

their t/c state that a handling charge is only applicable if not paid by internet banking or by credit card.

ive pulled p/ments history every p/ment states credit card

i dont have one.

customer services have admitted that their t/c may be confusing and apologised by e-mail with a name on it and offered mr my previous number foc.

i want my money back

false accounting springs to mind

any advice please.

sorry if ive posted on wrong thread

You should create your own thread. It makes it easier for people to find information. The complaints information is as I posted at the top of this thread and will probably be your best course, but I believe you need to pay in advance of your bill being due to qualify for not having to pay the processing fee.

 

Create your own thread, and keep us updated. If you need help writing a complaint letter, ask in your own thread and people will help :)

You are due a refund of the charges. Ask for it, in WRITING. It is not 'false accounting' so that is a non starter. Whoever flagged the inbound payments did so incorrectly. It didn't matter previously, only when they magnanimously decided NOT to charge those who paid by DD AND BACS (PC Banking). To make the charge stick, you would have to prove something other than incompetence, and this will be impossible to achieve.

 

Ask for the credit to be applied to your last account, with a small amount to cover your lostt due to their error. If this results in a final credit balance to you of under £25, you will have to formally ask for this to be repaid as it usually sits there as a credit on your account.

UPDATE

 

T Mobile have removed by default - it certainly pays to keep harassing them with letters!
