Right I know they tried it last year and knew they might again this year, but to this extent, VERY STINKY:-x

 

Paid my tvlicense this month as usual by debit card over phone. once every four weeks pay tvl for the next four weeks. When you were in the tvl scheme a couple of years ago and say if your schedule was finishing end december, therefore paid for your license till end 31/05/2011, you used to be given a little break of a few weeks till next one started, another words paid off mid dec start paying mid Jan.

 

BUT the greedy beggars in tvl started carrying on the new one after the old one. Not too much of a change you would think, untill I remember one month I was ill and they put the fear of god into me that the enforcers would be round to check on my tv status and I got very upset. They acted visciously and rudely and intimidated me into forgetting, hang on I have a tvlicence and the new schedule doesnt even start till Jan. What I hadnt noticed due to not receiving first one was they had overlapped the dates and well it put my nose out big time.

 

So now they get sniffier, last year the overlap was one week and I when this month decided to pay xmas and the license off in advance to free me up for dec, suspected they would send another schedule starting end dec asap again.

 

Theyve gone for the record and within two days of paying my old one off in advance they have sent a new schedule asking for more money from yep, next week monday even, meaning they expect the money again this week to get there by that date.:jaw:

 

 

Rang them up and said I thought they had made a mistake and said paying in advance and even if they need to send a new schedule out on whatever planet they are on, dont they think its a bit sniffy to ask for said payment on same week as paying for two months in advance !!!!!!!

 

They of course said NO:lol:SMELLY BEGARS. REMEMBER THEY ARE A DCA AFTER ALL WORKING FOR THE TVL/BBC,next they will be asking you to borrow from friends or get a loan to pay the license ten years away in advance.:-x

 

They also pressure to get your phone number and dont like it when you refuse, dca behaviour there sneaking out and putting fear of god into you when there is no grounds, well again dca.

 

They are now sending out a new schedulte after telling me they cant, hahhahha. :)

I have had the same, I preferred to pay them two months at a time, they said monthly dds and I said 'sorry, I don't have DDs."

 

However they do send out texts to remind me my bill is due, and I text back "PAID" when appropriate.

 

The TV licence is outdated and needs to be abolished. I mostly now watch stuff on my PC....

For those guest watching wondering why the hecky thump I am refering the the tvl as dcas. It was down to me ringing up on query a few months ago and the answer not being tvl as expected but a well known dca firm. I rang back and thought hang on and found out confirmed by next tvl rep that they were a centre that dealt with many companies processing payments and of course they were a dca working for the bbc doing the payment plans. The previous agent had apparantly commited what I believe they thought was the cardinal sin of getting the companies mixed up who he was representing today and instead gave out the main company name, a DCA' I wasnt in arrears so it wasnt a matter of passing to external dca or even internal one, they turned out to be a dca firm processing all these plans as told by their own rep trying to justify his blooper. I then confirmed it to be true, so why doesnt out payment plans say who we are really dealing with?

 

Now think do you want them the tvl to have your phone number?

 

When you get those calls and wonder how your new number even has got to a stranger who knows your name etc......and I am not saying it is them of course as have no proof, but think what every household is supposed to have, yep a tvlicence and unless you pay the year in advance at post office, or even if you pay over the phone in full, what do they ask for and not like you to refuse?

 

PHONE NUMBER, BE VERY VERY CAREFUL, JUST INCASE. Of course any dca wouldnt pass of your number would they?

 

NO of course not:roll: Imagine if this dca is after you for something else, do they not use a registered phone number they have for the tvl as a matter of honor not to misuse it, how do we know is all I say.

 

A dca firm should not be collecting money from vulnerable people on behalf of the bbc at all because of the possible risk of sniffy behaviour and possible use of protected information savvy to tvl only if you give it out. Where when you ring to quey or make payment do they say they are a dca firm to give you the chance to think, oooooh better not give them my number.
