Afternoon everyone,

 

Is there a section on this site that deals with Junk mail?

 

My problem is that a National company is sending addressed mail to my address it is always addressed to the householder or occupier and is franked and not part of a mail shot to other addresses. so falls outside the data protection act as its not a named person.

 

I have been in correspondence with the company and they say they cant stop it. But they send it so its not a case of cant its a case of wont. Is anyone aware of any legislation I can use to stop them?

Sorry I am not willing to name them as they could be monitoring this site. At this point its is not relevant its a National PLC and brand name, the advice should be the same who ever they are.

Actually it is relevant, as you can find out if it is a masked mass marketing campaign, targeted campaign, or theyre deliberately harassing you.

 

Companies like this need to be named, shamed and reported. Not hidden away. Also who cares if they monitor this site. They wont know who you are, and they certaily cant bring the forum into disrepute if theyre sending junk mail addressed to the occupier. That shows its a base part of their business practice.

Yes and spoken to them. They cant help just gave me the company address to write to which was the address I had already been using to contact them. They TPS were surprised that the company had wrote on two occasions to me since Christmas saying they could not stop the mail. but told me there code is not law and told me they could not help.

Agree they should be named and they will be when I have got a conclusion to this.

 

Perhaps you could clarify what you mean by a masked mass marketing campaign, a targeted campaign.

They can be stopped as theyve flatly refused to do it twice now. The perso who advised you from TPS doesnt have a clue.

Virgin media keeps on sending me tons of junk mail despite writing to them a lot of times and telling them to completely erase my name and address from their database.

They ignored me completely.

Shame they don't send a return franked envelope anymore.

I used to send them lots of rubble in cardboard boxes with the prepay envelope stuck on it.

All junk mail to this house gets marked 'not known at this address, return to sender' and put back in the post. I do it even if it's only addressed to the householder. My very elderly dad saves it up and spends a happy afternoon swapping the contents before sending it all back.

It used to here but I don't stop them sending it.

 

All the companies I have returned it to in the last 3-4 years and enclosed a letter asking to be removed from there mailing list have done so without just this one exception. Who think they can continue to send it, waste my time with poor excuses as to why they cant stop it, and they think I will go away. well they are wrong my time is as valuable as there's and they will be paying for it if I can find the correct laws and get them in court I just need help to find it.

Harrison vs link is to do with continued harassment off a 'creditor' or other entity. You have told them straight, multiple times to take your information off their database. By your info, they have REFUSED to do so. Thats why i mentioned the case. Its pretty clear cut.

Thanks or sending the link again sorry I still cant open it but I assume it is the same case as CitizenB has sent me on the following link: http://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWHC/Mercantile/2011/B3.html I have read it twice now if it is and don't understand the link except point 83 which mentions phone calls. I am sure there was another case 3-4 years ago where someone took action over nuisance phone calls and clamed compensation for dealing with them which may also be relevant.

Thanks Ford, that's the one.

 

It is similar to the junk mail issue but as it did not go to court don't think it will get me far. I am a little surprised there are not more on here complaining about junk mail and that I cant find a way of stopping it from this company. I cant be the only one having this problem or is it just that I am over sensitive to it and I should throw them in the bin and walk away?

Virgin says readers should email their full name and address (including the postcode) to optout@virginmedia.co.uk. This is processed within “a couple of days”; however, you may receive letters for up to a further six weeks due to the way it processes its data for the next month’s mailings.
