    • hello   I was involved in an unpleasant incident at a company which I spotted was a regular thing happening there. It was not nice for me as I was mildly allergic, and I knew that it could have an even more negative reaction in some people. and so I had to do something to stop it.   I did not want to be aggressive in my response. I just said it was not malicious and tried to be helpful and reasonable, as there was risk of the same thing happening again to others, I was very helpful.   I was 'eventually' assured it would not happen again.   I thought I might be eligible for some form of compensation. They would not send me their policy’s when I asked.They would not discuss compensation funds. But they asked for my address and sent me a surprise gift, a rather large package of alcohol  beverages which most people would be overly happy about. Unfortunately  I cannot consume Alcohol.  I am old enough,  although, they did not check ID. I used cash at the company, no cards Although I did state my age by email.   It is hard to return a gift, it pulls on the heart strings.  But I politely said thank you very much, but I cannot consume alcohol due to my beliefs and please may I return the package and asked for a voucher or perhaps suggest something else.   They politely said to offer the alcohol to someone who could enjoy it and thanks for all the help.   Can anyone give any thoughts on this? Was I wrong to ask for the return of the package?   Thank you very much.    
    • That may well be the case as part of their T&Cs...which also states you have to pay £300 +VAT cancellation fee.....but you dont have any legal right as your LTD Company and not a Consumer..you dont have protection of the Consumer Rights Act.
    • Oh I didn’t know that. Any idea what those thresholds are? Also, what could they contest - the amount you’re claiming for?(as they couldn’t contest that they have infringed GDPR)
    • Lex Autolease have advised me that I do have the 14 day cooling off period. It's in their business contract t&c's.    I would like to cancel the finance part of it before the period is over but they won't let me and Lex are saying that I can't do it direct as they don't have paperwork yet.     
    • Yes Jase a default can be registered for current accounts that attract an overdraft...although the default would have placed by HSBC not Intrum Finance.There name would have been added when HSBC assigned the debt to them.   Andy

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

ericsbrother, When you say deduct the line rental, do you mean going back to start of contract with True Telecom or when Chess took over or the final bill from Chess ?.

from the final amount they are claiming for ending the contract early.

 

they are charging you for ther lost business up to a certain point in the future and you are telling them that they dont have to pay BT for the line as that has been taken from them by BT so it isnt a cost they have or will pay out.

 

If you retunred your car to a dealership you wouldnt expect them to tell you that you must continue to tax and insure it until next year would you?

Thanks ericsbrother,

I will write to Chess and put that to them,

as i am paying rental now to Talk Talk who like Chess pay BT line rental,

 

Between the line rental deduction and unauthorised extras i have paid the final payment should be substantially reduced.

so did you stop the d/d or have you been paying them blindly ever since your first complaint? if not why not?

 

Sitting on your backside for 6 months doesnt impress us, the more proactive you are the easier it is to kill these things.

When are you going to do somehting to help yourself is the big question. You run your own business so I cant accept that you are ignorant of what that entails, it is your job to know.

I stopped the direct debit right away as soon as the new supplier took over,

Chess for a time were sending online requests for payment every month and then they stopped after january ,

 

I was hoping that they gave up and left alone.

 

The letter is now posted 1st class proof of posting, I am also going to call Chess to let them know that the letter is on its way.

 

I have called Chess and spoken to the person who will probably read the letter, so she knows what the letter is about and that it is on its way.

The Chess invoice is for early termination of contract.

 

I explained why i left Chess.

When you receive their usual response.....here is your response.

 

Should the alleged amount claimed include an early termination charge(s) amounting to the entire balance of the remaining contract. OFCOM guidance states that any Early Termination Charge that is made up of the entire balance if the remaining contract is unlikely to be fair as it fails to take into account the fact that the provider no longer has to provide and pay for their service.

Thanks dx,

 

The email is as follows

 

Pre Legal warning

Outstanding balance £500 plus

 

Please note your account has now been escalated to the Pre Legal department in respect of the unpaid balance to Chess Ltd which is now seriously overdue

 

you should contact 0844 or email prelegal to make payment or to confirm your intention with regards to this matter

 

The account will remain with the pre legal department for 10 days from today.

 

If the account is still unresolved it will automatically be referred to our Solicitors at which point it will enter a legal process incurring additional charges in accordance with the late payment of commercial Debts ( interest act 1998 )

 

Chess shares payment information with credit reference Agencies , failure to settle the balance will have detrimental to your credit score and rating.

 

Another option is to bring the services back to Chess in which case we can remove any termination fees levied.

 

I also earlier called Chess pre legal department and was told that they do have the letter that i sent in july regarding the unautharised extras and was told that Chess can off £85 off the balance, at which i said i have a much bigger financial issue with Chess and True telecom who sold the account to Chess and that is that i was paying way higher than to BT whom i left to go to True telecom.
