urm what are a DCA doing with a utils bill?

 

that explains the discount.

 

util companies do and succeed in easily getting CCJ themselves at the drop of a hat.

they didn't they sold it on.

 

that means there is SOMETHING WRONG with the debt

the fact there is a discount also means there is something WRONG [bOGUS] with the debt.

 

is it defaulted and showing on your credit file?

Hello bitemarx and I can confirm, we've sold some of our unrecovered debt to Lowell.

 

The sold accounts are all finalised and have had outstanding balances for a fairly long time (up to 6 years old). They've gone through our complete debt collection process but we've been unable to collect the outstanding balances.

 

We'll have written to you to let you know about the sale and what to do next. Lowell will contact you independently by letter. Please deal with them directly as they'll now look after the debt. Contact details are on both ours and Lowell's letters.

 

Should you agree this is a valid debt, you can pay Lowell directly or talk to them about setting up a suitable payment arrangement. If you've any queries about the debt, our advisors will be happy to give you as much information as possible including meter readings and supply dates. They'll be unable to take any action on the account as this now needs to be initiated by Lowell.

 

Hope this helps point you in the right direction bitemarx.

get an sar running to eon BM.

get the information ignore lowells for now.

 

if the debt doesn't show then make SURE the address that the debt occurred at IS showing under your linked addresses on your credit file.

if it does then this smacks that the debt is defaulted more than 6yrs ago and has been removed from your file as aged.

CAn you ring Eon and ask them?

 

Alternatively give them as much info as you can re addresses, type of fuel etc and see if they can find the account that way.

Hello bitemarx and just a quick heads up about the SAR.

 

Under recent changes to industry regulations, when customers ask for an SAR, we need to raise a Customer Rights Request. Once raised, we need to be back in touch within 30 days. We'll send you copies of the data on the account, including the bills, as well as any phone call transcripts we hold. There's no longer any charge for this service.

 

As Bazooka Boo says, we'll be able to identify the account from the postal address for the old property. Please also include the reference number from Lowells.

 

Hope this is of use bitemarx.

Malc, I genuinely dont know:

 

What the heck is a Customer rights request and why should that mean anything to a person making a SAR request under the GDPR?

 

especially, What has that got to do with delaying the 30 day countdown from CUSTOMERS request to the response required under the GDPR - if thats what your post means?

 

 

My understanding is that quite simply you have to get back to the customer within 30 days of their request unless there is a good reason why not, and its my understanding that your internal systems or processes or desires is NOT a valid reason for any delay ...

 

More than happy to be enlightened regarding this ..


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 ...

Theres no such thing as a customer rights request. Its a silly thing eon have come up with in order to frustrate and stall a legal request under GDPR


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

 

 

If my advice helps you, click the star icon at the bottom of my post and feel free to say thanks

Hello tobyjugg2 and the Customer Rights I mentioned above is part of the structure we've set up to make sure we comply with all aspects of GDPR.

 

GDPR covers more than just Subject Access Requests ( SAR). It also covers alternative customer rights such as the Right to Erasure, Right to Rectification, Right to Data Portability etc.

 

We've set up a ring-fenced team to deal exclusively with all these requests. Any advisor can raise a Customer Rights request. It then goes to this ring-fenced team who need to be back in touch with the customer within 30 days of the request originally being raised. It could be quicker depending on what's involved. There's no charge for this.

 

Previously, for an SAR, there was a £10 admin fee and we had up to 40 days from receiving a written request with payment to send the information. The new system will speed things up and make sure we're abiding by GDPR.

 

Hope this explains tobyjugg2. Let me know if you need any more information as happy to help.

As above, renegadeimp. The new system will speed up our response to these requests and make sure we're complying with the requirements of GDPR.

 

If bitemarx asks for a Customer Rights request to be raised, this will kick-start our system so we can give them the information they need in good time.

And as i said, its something your company made up to obfuscate the process. No other company does it. They dont need to make a rights request. When they request a sar, then you fulfil it. Not tell them to call again and raise a rights request.

 

But as we always say on here, we have to at least give you a chance to show your willingness to help people.

Sorry I wasn't clear renegadeimp. Customers don't need to call back. Where an SAR is required, please ask for this and the advisor will raise a Customer Rights request there and then. This will go to the ring-fenced team I mentioned who will sort it out within the timeframe I've outlined. This will be quicker and cheaper than before GDPR came in.

 

Hope this explains a bit better renegadeimp and have a good weekend.

That is part of the point.

 

A SAR is a legal request.

If you want to call it something else and confuse the issue, then that should be handled internally and nothing to do with requiring a customer to ask for a 'eon made up gobbledegook wording request'

 

1. Customer requires SAR.

2. Customer asks for SAR.

3. EON (or whoever) complies with SAR request.

 

How the heck is a customer supposed to know you want it worded a particular non standard way, and why should they either care or comply?

 

... and if you say or imply:

'because it will be quicker and cheaper'

which also carries the implication of

'if you do it our way it isnt really asking for a SAR as defined in law so doesn't really count'

- I WILL forward this to the ICO

I am tempted to send this to the ICO, just get their view on this.

 

As always, corporations find a way to delay any just processes that are created to help consumers.

    • 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....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
