Good Evening,

 

Hope you are all okay.


During the course of 2013/2014 to 2018 I got in a substantial amount of debt, basically I was hit with the debt spiral... Where I would take out credit and pay back BNPL that where due by taking out more credit... Long story short about 15 telecommications Debts, 10 Maxed out Credit Cards And getting fed up of hearing from Lowell Group, PRA Group, Moorcroft, Westcot Credit Services, DRS Recovery, Capquest and Arrow Global... The list kinda doesn't end.....

 

Anyways I'm raising irresponsible lending complaints because during the time of application bare minimum payments were made across multiple creditors.

 

In this Vodafone I had around 10 Maxed out credit cards practically of them with absolute minimum payments and always over limit.

Vodafone then decided to offer me more and more contracts after the first one wasn't even paid on time.. To make matters worse one of them was even Statue Barred back in early 201x.

But yet happily offered me multiple phones and tablets which of course were sold to pay off other debts.

 

I've challenged Vodafone in relation to irresponsible lending and have received a Deadlock letter.

Vodafone claim all their checks went through fine, and I agreed to the price shown.

My complaint was in relation to my financial background during the time i.e if It was responsible given my circumstances i.e maxed out credit cards and practically living beyond my means if it was responsible to offer me further credit without falling behind on essential living costs.

 

After Vodafone provided me with a deadlock letter, I apposed communications ombudsman which Vodafone has just today objected to the case as falling outside of their scope of works.

I'm seeking advice what to do further.

Obviously I understand I applied for the credit which I don't dispute, however drastic times call for drastic measures and whilst that was probably a bad choice I'm assuming businesses are held responsible as they are supposed to offer credit responsibly and ensure customers have the ability to pay back credit.

vodafone does not give credit

as you have a debt with them, it will be reported on credit files, i'm not too sure what a credit check page is.?

 

could you have not only agreed to mobile service contract(s) with them, but also signed credit agreements for the devices?

that might explain things better?

did you sign any separate credit agreements for the devices themselves that you sold on rather than just agree to have a free device as long as you pay the contractual monthly service charge?

 

some providers only use one of the three credit file companies, depends who their corporate group signed up too.

accepting an agreement or a contract or both?

if it was a mobile service contract AND a credit agreement for the phone then you would have had to have signed the agreement online as well as a separate area whereby you accepted the service contract. they are two totally separate things IF a credit agreement existed as well. your credit file should detail what these are if they show.

I believe it's a service type of contract, but I'm not really sure.

It identifies it as a communications supplier from my Credit Report.

The FOS have asked for further details and they are able to at least look into it to see if it's something they can look into as they have permission from the communications dispute team.

 

Believe it or not I haven't actually been charged for the devices on multiple agreements...

They have said the balance won't raise but don't know why I haven't been charged.

looking good then.

yes i'm gonna assume the devices were simply given free as part of the service deal..come to us you get a free xxxx.

this could be quite interesting to see what the fos do actually.

 

a mobile phone contract is not consumer credit, so in itself it cannot come under a banner of 'irresponsible lending' by vodafone.

but the free phones introduce a interesting twist here and i expect the FOS will not ever want go there and simple state they have no remit to investigate any IRL issues as there was no 'irresponsible lending' by vodafone merely a series of service contracts which come under the remit of xxx organisation to investigate.

not sure what they state, but i suspect the FOS will say we are not the regulators of mobile phone service providers XXX are.
