    • SERCO seem to be a default company that Government use to perform contact centre type tasks. So any department faced with a problem, say a sudden increase in incoming phone calls, which they cannot handle, because they are dealing with more immediate issues such as making payments to the public, may in the short term involve SERCO.   SERCO seem to employ a lot of security cleared, DBS checked, financial checked etc employees, so they seem to equipped and ready to manage tasks on behalf of Government departments.   No idea just how much work SERCO does on behalf of Government, but I should imagine it makes up a sizeable chunk of their business.   Public Health departments may want to perform the work themselves, but given the number of employess required, the recruitment process involved, the hours of work 24/7 and just how quick they need to be set up to perform the work, I question whether they are better placed to do so.   I wouid always prefer public sector employees over outsourced contracts, but I can understand why Government uses companies such as SERCO. 
    • Well, we’ve found something we agree on.   you’ve described the unfairness, but haven’t said what (realistically!) you feel your options are.
    • There's a campaign against Serco and in favour of local public health people. Apologies for one bit of language but it's a memorable slogan.   https://twitter.com/i/status/1309910583790252037  
    • Hi.   What type of lease have you had up to now please?   HB
    • my options are if they can be shown they have some responsibility as they did earn commssion and the resturant has its payment. so both parties and paid and i lose out. if we can show they have some moral if not legal obligation then maybe they can give me some refund if not all.   imagine how many others being screwed over too?   beacuse it is online are we to be cheate for now untill goverment decides to govern this area of ecomerese or something?   i dont have a clue.

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Afternoon all,

 

Ill try to make this as simple as possible in the hope that someone might be able to help.

 

My Orange contract was about to expire and to cancel the contract I had to do so in writing, sadly I failed to sign this letter. Orange wrote back to me saying they needed the letter signing for their records. I signed and sent immediately. I didn’t here anything back so thought this was the end of the matter. This was all done well within the last month of the contract.

 

All of a sudden I started receiving invoices and statements claiming monies, no break down, just amounts. Then Orange started to call me a couple of times a day but none of their call centre staff could help regarding my query, they just wanted money!

 

I wrote to Orange whilst these calls continued but heard nothing back, I sent further recorded letters (complaints) to customers services, and heard nothing back. I’ve contact orange 4 times now via recorded mail, they haven’t once contacted me regarding my query.

 

At this stage, the so called debt has been passed onto NCO Europe Ltd, let me tell you, these boys are real cowboys, they call endlessly, and they’re aggressive and very unprofessional, why Orange would use such a bunch. Anyhow, I complained to NCO Europe, requested they no longer contact me via phone but they still do, they send me various letters with 72 hour notice before.....and other pointless threats of how they'll be round to visit.

 

I really don’t know what to do, Orange won’t reply to me, NCO keep harassing me.

My partner says I should sue them for harrassment but Im really unsure.

 

Can anyone help?

 

Tizzy.

I fear that you have not realized the worst... Have you checked your credit report? Mobile companies can damage your credit file as much as a CCJ depending on the search criteria!

 

Now, to deal with this, 1st the DCA, Send them this letter http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/resources/templates-library/86-debt-collectors/574-letter-when-account-has-been-passed-on-whilst-agreement-request-is-in-dispute but miss out the paragraphs referring to the CCA (that is for disputed debts from financial firms)

 

OK then to the crux of the problem Orange. All telecoms suppliers that deal with the public have to adhere to a "Code of practice" which gives you an outline of how to complain.

This is the Orange Code of practice http://www1.orange.co.uk/documents/regulatory_affairs/orange-consumer-codes-of-practice(v1.7).pdf

 

The interesting bits for yourself are :-

complaint handling process

If you want to make a complaint, firstly you should

contact customer services using the details in the

contact section at the back of this booklet and speak

to us to discuss any problems you may have. In

most cases your query will be answered immediately.

If you have an issue which is not resolved then

you will have the option to discuss the issue with a

Customer Service Team Leader and if still unresolved

a Customer Service Manager.

alternative dispute resolution procedure

If after contacting us we have not resolved your

complaint to your satisfaction within 8 weeks, or if

you have received a letter from us saying that your

complaint has reached “deadlock”, you may make

a complaint through CISAS. CISAS will not consider

any complaint until one of the conditions for referral

has been met. CISAS is an independent alternative

dispute resolution scheme which has been approved

by Ofcom.

Details of the service are available by contacting Orange

customer services or CISAS at the following address.

Ok, so I emailed the Orange Response team on this website and can I say, what a useless task that was. They couldnt help and just gave me the same usless information asking I call customer servies. Ive written to them several times and theyve not replied.

 

Just dont know what to do.

Write to them here:

 

St James Court,

Great Park Road,

Almondsbury Park,

Bradley Stoke,

Bristol

Tell them what they have done wrong, I'd also suggest that there is no need for a signature on a letter, as they can confirm you are who you say you are by giving them your details. Tell them what you would accept as settlement (xxx money returned and your credit file fixing? Something along them lines.) or as your cokmplaint is over 8 weeks old (I'm assuming there :p) you will escalate the complaint to CISAS.
