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?
Not a legal issue as such but wasn't sure where to ask advice on this.
I have just been awarded £2050 on a PPI claim. I went through a claims company so i expected to pay them 40% plus VAT of the claim won. However, i am querying the quoted court costs (which i was not informed about prior to this). They are quoting the following court costs: -
£205 - Court Issue Fee
£335 - Court Hearing Fee
I am no legal expert but these seem very high for such a small financial claim. I will be lucky to see £500 of the initial £2050 if this is correct (yes i understand the 40% i could have avoided if i didnt use the claims company). If these costs seem realistic then no probs with agreeing to them but if the claims company artificially inflated these for their own gain i would be none the wiser.
Can anyone advise please?
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!
