    • All Talk Talk Direct debits/standing orders, etc were all cancelled correctly and set up for BT. Talk Talk took the money from my debit card details which they had retained. I have now blocked this too. I just want my money back!
    • On the basis it was a direct debit from the bank. Why did you not use the DD guarantee and insist the bank refunds the money.     
    • Basically i can claim for my excess and loss of earnings as i was self employed and cost for hire of van, solicitors have asked for uninsured losses, if lossess are not included in claim i cant recover them at later date the letter states.  
    • Hi All,   On 26th May this year I called my broadband/phone service provider, Talk Talk, to inform them that I would be leaving them and moving to BT at the end of the month.  My contract with Talk Talk had officially ended back in October 2019 and I was just paying them on a monthly basis for continued service. I was advised that I did not need to do anything, as arrangements would be made on my behalf to keep my existing number etc between Talk Talk and BT.  I began my contract with BT on 1st June.  I cancelled my bank payment arrangements to Talk Talk and set up new ones for BT. I then received a bill from Talk Talk for June's monthly charges, which I ignored as I was no longer a customer, I owed them nothing, and they were not providing me with any kind of service. I then received a second bill from Talk Talk for July's monthly charges. I called Talk Talk to explain their error but they insisted that I was still a customer using their services.  This was despite me proving that I have been a BT customer for the past two months and paying BT for services that Talk Talk are claiming to be theirs. Talk Talk then took £60.39 from my bank account on 2nd August, despite having no authority or consent from me to do so.  I complained to my bank and they explained that utility companies hold on to customers payment details (despite GDPR) and this practice is common.  I have now instructed my bank to refuse any further payments to Talk Talk, by any means!. I phoned Talk Talk to complain and insist they repaid my money immediately as it had been obtained fraudulently and they are not providing any service to me anymore.  The adviser couldn't help much, but promised me a call from a manager later in the week.  The call never materialised. I called Talk Talk myself today, and after nearly four hours of phone calls, being put on hold, transferred, being made promises and making more calls, I have got nowhere. One manager did offer a token £30 payment which I obviously turned down.  I eventually hung up after being put on hold for over 20 minutes during a call lasting over an hour. These people are ignorant at best and impossible to deal with. Please could someone advise me on how to get my £60.39 back from these people?  
    • They can ask you to help them.   The reason for doing this is that the accident was between two private citizens with the Insurance companies covering the risk.  The Insurance company need your assistance to claim directly against the other driver, as the other drivers Insurance are not paying the claim.  Each Insurers pays 50% of the claim costs.     If you don't help the Insurers, I am not sure what they can do about this, as you are no longer a customer of theirs.   Perhaps ask whether they will cover your costs. e.g. time.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

hi, what support package do you have? usually its 3 repairs + 1 (request) and this is usually granted, 3 mobos is crap in 1 year but if it fails again then it might be worth demanding for replacment. as its cost affective for the copmany to keep repairing and causing you hasle for sending it away etc.

Coverplan will do as it says in the policy "unlimited repairs" unless its beyond economical repair.

 

If its had 3 repairs in the space of such a short time, book it for repair, then wait a few days then call them back up and ask for a write off. Thats the way its usually done, if you book it for a write off it simply be fixed and sent back.

 

So book it again, then call in a few days once its at the work shop and put your write off request in.

If the first original repair hasn't went over 42 days then the guys on the phone will be right in what they're saying

Good job labrat you do what I do, if I get through to someone that is obviously unhelpful I just hang up and redial, every company has useless staff and the trick is not to waste your time on them. I even offer to send them a copy of the recording of the call.

 

With the Watchdog story I thought people coming round to peoples houses doing work and turning round saying they are not qualified is a bit daft. However I am surprised they ran the story about the lady that lost pictures of her grand kids because the computer went faulty. How is the data on your computer the responsibility of a retailer :!:

ok now this is really doing my head in

 

laptop collected 20th of september - start of 6 weeks rule

returned 6th october

sent back again the 7th october

receaved back in store 12th october they tried to contact us but couldnt

i rang the store 14th october to get an update and was told is in store so collected

19th october went faulty again so booked in via store

still on going

 

rang up for a write off today was told no the reason being that they say theres a gap of more than 7 days

 

they have listed the repairs as

 

20th sep - 6th october

7th october - 11th october

21st october - ongoing

 

the problem is that they have got the dates down wrong it should be

 

20th sep - 6th oct

7th oct - 12/14 oct (date in store/date picked up)

19th october (rebooked date) - ongoing

 

the problem im having and to put it politely is the sheer stuborn headness and inpoliteness of the call center

 

dispite trying to explain that the previous person had got the dates wrong when they said no the call center person i spoke to ignored me, talked over me, stated that it wasnt there job to check dates as the previous person had already done this dispite having this explained to them by both me and the store

 

im on the verge of calling in trading standards as theyve told me i must now wait another 6 weeks from the 21st october at which point the laptop will have been away for around 13 weeks in total.

 

im sure this is incorrect somewhere and i must admit i got quite shirty with the lass (without swearing) and pointed out that no-where in the terms and conditions i signed was this part about no gaps of a week or more and that it didnt apply as i didnt have a gap of over a week, at this point she stated that this was my problem not theres and i hung up

how does this sound

 

 

Dear sir or madam

 

i wish to complain about your lack of service over my account and the poor service offered by your call center representives

 

on the 20th of september my laptop (advent k6000) was collected by your repair services, the repair seemed to go well until we receaved the laptop back on the 6th of october at this point we realised that the fan wasnt working and that the unit rapidly over heated causing it to turn off

at this point we arranged a pickup via the store on the 7th of october this was repaired and returned to the store on the 12th of october however when the store tried to contact us they could not get hold of us and therefore the laptop wasnt collected from store untill around the 14th when i rang the store to get an update on the repair

we took the laptop home and used it as normal until it again failed on the 19th of october at this point we took it into store again and they booked it for collection

being aware of the 6 week limit for repairs we rang up on the 31st of october as it was still in repair and requested a write off this was refused as there had been a gap of more than a week in the repairs, we were unhappy with this but left off the call at this point to check on dates

looking down these dates we noticed that the staff had not used the correct dates in their working out on ringing up to correct these i spoke to what may have been the most un-helpful person in your services who stated that it wasnt her job to re-check the dates as the previous person had already done it, while trying to explain that the previous person had used incorrect dates i was talked over, interupted and generally informed that this was not her issue.

at this point i was informed that i would have to wait at least a further 6 weeks from the 21st of october, at this point my laptop will have been with yourselves for a total of around 13 weeks

 

What we require is our coverplan honouring and the terms and agreements that we signed sticking to, we have re-read these and no where in these does it state this rule over gaps

Hi Lab

 

It might be an idea to send a complaint to john.browett@dixons.co.uk he's the CEO. Tell him whats happened, give dates. Tell him how you want the matter resolved. Mark the e-mail Formal Letter of Complaint.

Hi,

Sorry for the late reply.

 

Have you tried getting someone to call the medics in store and getting them to sort it. They can push issues through, when speaking to customer service, they're normally just emailing someone else, where the medics will deal with it hands on.

 

May resolve this issue quicker. By time letters are wrote, i think you'll have vouchers or the laptop back.
