    • Hey guys,   I was using a utility supplier for 18 months. Every month, paid my direct debit on time. One day, they reviewed my account and said they had miscalculated my energy consumption and I now owe them £900.    I switched energy suppliers straight away as a consequence.    I am now being contacted by UK Search Limited by phone, email and text message. So far, I haven't responded and don't intend to.   I've checked my credit file. The account with the original utility supplier is closed and settled according to Credit Karma.    So what should I do with UK Search Limited? As far as I see it:   Completely ignore them until they go away (my preferred option) Contact them in some way and dispute the debt   I would be very grateful for any advice on how to proceed. I currently have an excellent credit score.    Thank you,  
    • Afternoon guys.   Just received the following from the dealer I purchased from:   Dear Mr Fish.   Sorry to hear you are experiencing problems with your car.   Unfortunately my contract of sale on this vehicle is with CarMoney Ltd and any issues or complaints will have to come from them. You can contact CarMoney on 0333 4564550 you will need your finance reference number for security.   Kind regards David Wickes GCS Cars Ltd

I am currently with Sky and I have just been advised that my monthly payment will be increasing by £5.50 from 1st June :shock:

 

I have Sky+HD Pack with Variety, Sports and multiroom.

 

Considering switching to Virgin, in which I have broadband and phone with.

 

Can any Virgin uses advise what the best package that is on offer at moment ?

 

Thanks

Red Button content poor on Virgin and NO Box sets.

 

No HD Channel on Sky Box Office.

 

Slow and lumbering Tivo Boxs.

 

I think I'm going to Sky Q when my contract is up. (Keeping my Virgin 200MB Broadband though)

The Virgin Tivo box can't even compare to the Sky boxes if you ask me. The Tivo was just so ridiculously clunky and slow in comparison when I had it. One of my friends recently went from Virgin back to Sky specifically because of the Tivo's poor usability. That and he couldn't stop it recording Coronation Street by itself no matter how much he tried.

Why pay for TV when so much is free? Have a look at Filmon there are over 3000 channels all free. Including sports movies and so much more... my two pennies worth.

 

I neither have Virgin or sky for TV.

 

Also I watch live TV from the states all for free..


If I have been of any help, please click on my star and leave a note to let me know, thank you.

Virgin have a 9 monthe offer but 6 months for most things

 

Purely from a cost PoV sky would be the cheaper option for the 1st year

 

Comes from someone who gas had virgin for over 10 years

I'll add that I have had MAJOR issues with 'honesty' from VM over the years and bills that rarely equated to what I should have been paying, and when challenged, promises made on refunds that were repeatedly broken, and refunds which were given, then reversed in following months.

 

I know some report that of SKY, but I never saw more than occasional glitches which happen with pretty much all companies, and which were quickly and efficiently resolved.

 

With VM it was like living with a pick pocket thief in your house.

Extremely distasteful.


I express my honestly held opinions - they are nothing more or less than that.

... Its just doing some due diligence that makes them seem unusual ...

OK thanks everyone for your comments and plenty to ponder lol !

 

Was also considering the option of Sky Q, so maybe a phone call to Sky customer services is due regarding cancelling my contract :wink:

 

Cheers
