Football Debt passed to DCA

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

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.

(https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/387710-iconcollections-football-league-debt/?tab=comments#comment-4642466)

 

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?

 

Thanks!

Gibbon

Only communicate with FM, never a DCA.

 

Not harassment, they can chase for amounts they believe are due under contract.

 

Why would they email asking if still in league ? Was there an issue before this ?


We could do with some help from you.

we would need to see the original contract to be able to advise what charges may be actually due and enforceable. If the contract contains parts that arent enforceable then the whole lot is duff under consumer law UNLESS you want to agree the other bits anyway. If you have dropped out of the league that scenario is unlikely

Hi Bossy and welcome to CAG

 

You can argue with FM all you like but they are not likely to change their view unless you tell them you want to stay as a team with them.

 

Do you WANT to stay with them and continue playing in the league - let us know.

 

If not, then you may be best to simply ignore further demands for now. The chances of them taking any action against you that would affect you are tiny.
