Finally got sick of the "best day to pay" messages

 

 

sent the "stop" message which is given in the text message.

 

 

This was done last weekend

 

 

today, low and behold, another message comes through!

 

I will be making a formal complaint to the Information Commissioners Office regarding the fact they have breached the request to stop messages.

 

I've attached the screenshots of the stop request and message received in breach of the request.

 

Will be interesting to see what Brighthouse say about this as it's a complaint they won't be able to handle, only respond to as the ICO will be involved.

 

Brighthouse reps ... attempt to defend this breach!

Arh Hyperjase, welcome back :) Hows the claim going?

Are you still paying them?

 

I suspect this is an automated message if you dont have a DD setup or CPA. However youre right that they shouldnt be constantly spamming as you it shows. How about getting your mobile number removed from their system.

 

Complain to Ofcom about the SMS aswell.


 

We could do with some help from you.

The claim is proceeding slowly but surely I'll keep you updated.

 

Regardless of it being automated I requested it be stopped through the process they request, which hasn't been complied with. I know I could make this simple by requesting the number be removed but why should I when they'd never go out their way for me?

Good Afternoon Hyperjase,

 

Firstly, I'd like to apologise for the text messages still being sent after the 'stop' reply was sent to the requested number.

 

I will happily add your details to our suppressions list and check the boxes on your account to withdraw all contact if you are happy for me to do so.

 

In order for me to do this, could you please contact the customer relations team with your account details and the phone number the text messages are being sent to.

 

Please email customer.relations@brighthouse.co.uk or call 0800 526069 and the team will be more than happy to help.

 

Kind Regards

I'm going to make this clear right from the start of this post:

 

If it looks like I'm being pedantic then that's fine. Brighthouse have not been bothered to deal with my complaint regarding charges and mis-sold and forced insurances. Therefore I will be doing NOTHING whatsoever further with regards to this matter in relation to having to waste time contacting customer services. The process was completed as requested in the message, if your system doesn't work, that's fine and that isn't my problem. A message was sent to stop the harassing messages, which has not stopped; therefore I am making a complaint to the bodies that regulate this, and I truly hope they slap you with a hefty fine for breaching customers' requests. I can imagine this won't happen but I will NOT be emailing or calling as I have followed your process as requested.

 

Letters of formal complaint have been sent today.

Nice to know your system works, yet another text this morning, yet another "STOP" message sent, still receiving them, will enjoy watching what the ICO and OFCOM action is.

Spoke with the ICO today, they're investigating.

 

Oh by the way Brighthouse, I've put Leo McKee as the contact name....

Good Morning hyperjase,

 

Again, I would like to apologise these messages are still coming through.

 

As requested before, please contact the customer relations team with the number the messages are being sent to so we can resolve the issue.

 

There are a few different ways the customer relations team can be contacted. You can call 0800 526069 or email customer.relations@brighthouse.co.uk. Alternatively, please write to:

 

BrightHouse

5 Hercules Way

Leavesden Park

Watford

The issue with the 'STOP' response has previously been passed on to the correct department and I will let them know the problem has not been rectified.

 

Kind regards

I'd rather let the ICO handle this issue. It'll cost Brighthouse that way. I followed your procedure as requested in the message. It didn't stop the messages and I have given my damning evidence proving that you have breached my rights to stop this type of contact from you.

 

But then again if the message goes to the specific branch then this is the same branch who failed to remove OSC despite the fact the manager signed the removal form (seems to follow a pattern here....)

I had a similar problem with Brighthouse a couple of years ago when they were phoning my mobile 6 times a day trying to get me to take on a new agreement. I work in retail and am not allowed my mobile phone on the shop floor with me so I ended up with lots of missed calls. When I finally managed to answer a call it was a Brighthouse call centre who would not take no for an answer.

 

When I called my local store to make a payment I asked them to remove my mobile number from their database which they did. Never had any problems since.

When you sign up to brighthouse use a free sim you can get easily online. Give them that number until you have you overpriced goods then throw the sim away. They can call and text as much as they like then.

My question is, I've responded to the message, with the exact message they require to the number they state, someone just isn't doing their job! I don't see why I should contact Brighthouse customer services, I won't waste my time because I've followed the process they give.

 

Jason; I'd like to point out that this is nothing personal, I have never met you or do not know you, (I feel it's a shame you work for such an underhand, downright loan-shark type company) but you must understand that Brighthouse have never made my life easy, applying charges which are deemed unfair (and on a regular basis), forcing insurance which inflates your already disgusting prices, then when I ask for a refund, I get NO reply. I have no intention of helping Brighthouse with anything, only to accept the £2500 I'm owed. If the stop messages don't stop the texts, that's fine, it doesn't really bother me. What bothers me is you make us play by the rules. And it's time Brighthouse did, and answer for their utter failures.

Good Afternoon hyperjase,

 

I have contacted the IT department at head office and requested that you no longer receive the best day to pay text messages.

 

I will confirm with you when I have received the reply stating all text messages have been stopped.

 

I would like to apologise for the time taken to resolve this issue and thank you for your patience.

 

Many Thanks

We will see what happens tomorrow morning. Whether they do or not, regardless, your system failed and I hope the ICO take action. They have undeniable proof your system has failed.

STILL receiving messages. Do not bother replying Jason, a Section 10 Notice has been sent out by Recorded Delivery as legal advice taken requires this to be the next step; failure to adhere to this WILL result in further action being taken by the ICO (that they have confirmed) and myself, for damages relating to the Data Protection Act.

Good Afternoon Hyperjase,

 

I would like to apologise once more for the text messages you have been receiving.

 

I am just confirming that I have been in touch with the IT department as well as the marketing team and they have confirmed your number has been taken off any lists we may have.

 

You should not have any more text messages or calls coming through to the number that is currently on your account.

 

Many thanks

Well Jason Web Relations, you don't seem to have much authority as they took no notice of you, lets see if it works this time.
