Heres an interesting question ... Do the Halifax send out these letters before doing due diligence and making sure there is no money owed to them, this does not apply to me, as surely sending out a letter like that and then doing due dilligence and stopping a payment after that letter must be wrong as well?
There are a few other threads on this forum regarding a 6-a-side league called Football Mundial(FM). Some have been charged for leaving the league early, late cancellation of games etc.
We had a few cancelled games, which we notified the league of in advance, where we were unable to field a team.
I received an email asking if I was still in the league and 7 mins later received an invoice for leaving the league early plus cancellation charges amounting to >£400.
Our team had not pulled out of the league.
I was out of the country with No access to emails, and was unable to respond for a couple of weeks. I then received an email from Icon DCA requesting payment.
As we never left the league I wrote to FM and said I disputed it and that they cannot send DCA's after customers for false charges. Does this not constitute harrassment?
They said that if we went back to the league, they would drop the charges, however after this treatment that is the last thing I want to do. I told them we would not be returning as a result of the treatment we have received and would not be paying.
They have now come back with some late cancellation charges and have still included the 'Leaving league' charge.
Now, the late cancellation charges are probably legit. We notified them about 12 hours in advance so they had time to notify the opponent.
But after receiving a number of False charges in addition, I do not want to settle part of it and still be chased for the false part. It annoys me that they feel they can issues false charges and pressure people into paying up.
Am I being blind to my own wrong-doing here or am I in the right?
Should I be concerned with this being taken to court?
Should I write to the DCA?
Don't touch them owe me £500 since January 2019 make excuse after excuse. Seem they always have software problems sending money out. Keep saying they will call back or email nothing been chasing it now for 6 mths the phone staff always have the same banter we will chase it up and get back to you then nothing!
