Hi everyone,

 

It seems I'm not the only one being hounded by CRS on a daily basis.

 

I was bought a gym membership in my own name (without my knowledge initially) last year as a Christmas present. It was my local gym at the time.

 

I went to the gym for around 10 months before the gym were given notice that I was moving away from the area. They had a couple of months notice. My parents didn't send this recorded delivery as they never thought this would happen.

 

A couple of months passed and I got a letter from the gym saying that I hadn't given notice - I had already moved at this point and my parents (who started the contract) received it. They were given notice once again saying that I had moved out etc.

 

My "debt" was then passed to CRS who are phoning me several times a day.

 

I have explained to Harlands that they have passed my details to a third party without my consent - I did not start the contract and I never paid a penny for anything in my name. My parents started it and paid it for me as a present.

 

Harlands refuse to talk to my parents on the phone. Harlands also refuse to discuss anything with me as it "has been passed downstairs to CRS".

 

From where I'm sat I'm being chased for a debt I don't owe. I didn't start the contract, I didn't sign anything and they were given notice (by my parents).

 

CRS tell me that they will be sending letters to me if I refuse to speak on the phone. I've explained I don't live there anymore - so they tell me they will give the debt to their solicitor who will trace me and I'll be charged for it.

 

Any thoughts guys?

 

The original debt was about £75 I think and now we're at £280 ish...all "admin charges" and "penalties" of course.

 

Thanks,

Hi LF,

 

We need more info :-

 

1. Did YP's pay for the year's m/ship up-front or by monthly DD from their a/c.

 

2. When did they give the gym or Harlands notice to cancel due to your or their relocation.

 

3. When did they make the last payment to Harlands.

 

4. If they paid by monthly DD, what date was the last DD paid.

 

In the meantime please don't worry at all about the admin fees Harlands/CRS are adding. They make meaningless threats that are not followed up.

 

Harlands haven't breached any DPA rules - Harlands and CRS are the same outfit !!

 

So there's no need to contact them for any reason and, if they call you or YP's, hang up !

 

:-)
