EE Cifas marker for non payment


Recommended Posts

Looking for some advice, back in 2015 I bought a ee sim card for data not a mobile phone and it was not on a contract it was a monthly thing where as I understood I paid £20 and had 20gb of data to use.

I stopped topping up after 2 months and the data stopped,

 

after applying for a c/c I was refused and my bank account was cancelled and I was told to check CIFAS file and was shocked to find

 

First party fraud - (Opening an account or other facility for a fraudulent purpose or the fraudulent misuse of an account or facility;

or taking out an insurance policy for a fraudulent purpose or the fraudulent misuse of an insurance policy and/or insurance policy documentation)

 

Which looks like they are saying I opened my bank account to commit fraud, I had the bank account 7 years before.

 

So any ideas how I go about getting this removed

we will need more details of how the phone sim and bank account are linked and why insurance seems to be what they are grouching about.

 

Start at the beginning,

name the bank and phone provider and whilst you are at it go through your bank statements to see if there is anything that resembles what you are accused of.

 

Also look at your credit files and see who has been  putting their feet all over it.

 

if you have a great block of red ink courtesy of a phone provider then that will be the link

but also understand that you might not have bought a data contract but some other product linked to the phone or not connected to it in any way

It was a data sim because my internet in the house was down

I bought the sim from EE and used it in a data module that I also bought from ee at a cost of £100,

They performed a credit check so had to give them my nationwide bank details for this.

 

It was just a sim card

no phone or module or insurance,

it was £20 per month on a rolling contract where they took the £20 in advance for the data.

 

On my credit file they have a default of non payment of £20 dating back to 2016

that doesn't tell us enough about activity on your bank account nor about any other red marks on your credit file.

 

The CIFAS marker isn't about a phone contract so what exactly was the contract for? 

you say data but that will come under a service contract so would it be possible to use massive amounts of data improperly and then not pay for it?

 

what about your bank account, were you in the red?

were you paying funds into the account from recognised sources like salary.

Did you have any other DD's on that account.

This is what I do not understand

It was for a data sim card where EE took £20 in advance for 20gb of data each month on a month by month rolling contract

 once I had used the data it would switch off so impossible to use any more than I had already paid for.

If I wanted to carry on using it i would have to log on and pay another £20.

 

I used the service for a few months and then did not renew the contract and heard no more 

 

My bank account was used for ID purposes only and was my main bank account with all my wages and d/d and held for 7 years plus, no insurance was taken out and no other accounts opened.

 

This is my point EE have listed this and has no connected with the data they have entered

i bet it wasn't a rolling monthly contract with a free data device..

i bet it was a 12 or 24month contract as long as you paid the £20 sum PCM for the duration of the contract.

It was defiantly a rolling contact because it was had to be renewed each month,  I had to log onto an account and load £20 there was no D/D  and I bought a data device.

 

The cifas entry appears to say I used a bank account for fraudulent purpose

so the cifas marker was nowt to do with EE and doesn't have their name either

so i cant see why thats even been mentioned here.

 

 

so the bank did it for some reason.

did you have any large monetary sums go in that were not wages.

I suspect you are going to find out that you (or at least EE will argue that you) did not sign up to a rolling contract that needed you to renew it each month, but that you signed up to some other arrangement that required you to continue monthly payments until it either expired or you cancelled it as per their T&Cs.

 

Or EE have simply made a mistake

EE have a habit of doing this. If you stop paying in some cases they add CIFAS Markers...

Its wrong. Have you sorted your Bank Account? Who did you go with? Itll drop off the record after Apr 2022. 

 

In this case i think it can be challenged. Maybe email the CEO?

I can help draft something on this for you.

 

We could do with some help from you.

an update and so more help with the above topic,

 

I have managed to speak to someone about the issue and it turns out I was right and the default was placed in error as I had bought the device and was on a pay as you go data plan and had paid for all services I had used.

 

The lady from ee confirmed this and the default has been removed from my credit file.

However the entry on the cifas database has not as this needs to be done via EE credit referrals but they have no phone number and only an email address.

 

I have had no reply from them so want to know who/how I go about contacting to get help so any ideas

eh? why couldn't EE do it themselves interdept?

seems a bit odd that the sufferer has to run around and undo their mistakes and ring the right people up!

 

what a company!!

This sounds like a very serious error and you should be looking for compensation.

 

I suggest that you send them and SAR - and then if you want we can help you go from there

Just a quick update I have managed to speak to someone from the fraud team who maintain they were within their rights to upload a fraud entry but having looked at the account again they will remove said entry. While this is a great outcome I still feel it is wrong they can upload a fraud marker because they * think* I took out an account to defraud them when it was a pay as you go dongle so impossible to get anything more than i paid for.

 

Thank you for taking the time to speak to me.

 

This account was taken out on 27 November 2015 for a Dongle on a 30 day commitment. You do have to call to cancel the agreement and give the required 30 days’ notice which I can see from my records you did so however this was the day after payment was due .

 

I can confirm our Fraud Team have removed the Fraud Flag. This particular CIFAS flag is loaded when an account is cancelled for non-payment after the first bills were paid .

 

The loading itself is for evasion of payment which means that you had entered into a contract with EE, with no intention to pay. Therefore, this fits under first party fraud, misuse of the facility.

 

The CIFAS entry was loaded correctly, however, as the balance has been adjusted, they have removed the entry from CIFAS.

 

Any lenders viewing a brand-new copy of your report, dated after 21 August 2020, via Experian, TransUnion or Equifax will no longer see the information.

 

 

If you would like to talk to us

If you’d like to talk to me about this, or anything in my email, please call me on 0800079 0232. I am in the office this week until tomorrow 9.30am to 5.30pm.

 

Thanks again Thomas for getting in touch. I stay safe.

imho you should be seeking compo.

 

a mobile phone contract or indeed any contract supplier should not be allowed to enter a cifas marker at all in mymind.

 

next we'll have the ruddy private parking companies doing it for speculative invoices!!
