I signed up to lesuire leagues( football leagues 5aside)

when signing up you had to accept t&c to sign up, as most people you click them regardless.

A friend then said lets make a team, so we did however nothing came up, no agreement or anything.

 

A day later they called saying we have a game in one week, and if we wanna leave the league we have to give 2 weeks notice which is the first time hearing this or seeing.

 

Tuesday is the games, monday comes and players have dropped out and no longer can make it due to work family etc, 

 

I just called them up and decided to withdraw us from the league, in the t&c it does say we must give 2 weeks notice to leave the league if not we have to pay the 2 weeks games which is £64,

 

i left and the debt collectors sent me an email saying i owe £64 then something about something and then ill owe £240.

 

ive seen a few of these situations and they all just say ignore. should i?

Cool,

update is they resent me the same email they sent me a week ago,

i asked for it on the same day as i deleted it and then decided i wanted to read it.

 

but just sent me the same email,

im assuming when they said they were going to pass it over to their debt recovery team, they meant a different department of the company instead of an actual agency which is probably the exact same people then i spoke to on the phone, or maybe im wrong, regardless, will continue to ignore will update again within a week.

DCA's are not bailiffs and have zero legal powers.

 

ignore everything

Update, no letters as of yet and no email since a week ago. I'm not concerned obviously when it first happened i was worried but a week later i realised how stupid it is, will keep updating for others incase they end up with the same problem from these weirdos

Hi GG,

 

Glad to hear it's been quiet.

 

Let's hope it stays that way but, if they pester you again, ignore and let us know.

Nevermind I have another email saying I have another 7 days and that if i dont pay it will be sent to debt agency which i know have no powers, but then they said it will also effect my credit rating which i was told it wouldnt

 

im assuming its just a threat to encourage me to pay, i can copy and paste the email if you guys want however i will continue to ignore them, i guess cause its written quite formal with legal words it seems a little worrying.

That's why they write it the way they do - so you feel threatened.

 

But it's just hot air and this cannot affect your credit rating  unless they took you to court, which they don't !!

In the email it said because i accepted terms and conditions its legally binding contract,

 

i received no products or services from them so it makes no sense for me to owe them money cause i left the league and never began playing :D

 

i know it wont go court obviously, regardless will continue to ignore but are we 100 percent sure it cant effect credit,

 

considering i never accepted nor signed some sort of credit agreement or direct debit and again never received services or products from them

ok sir i will continue to ignore and continue to update for others

 

sorry :D

 

the reason i thought it might effect credit is because you dont need to go court for it to effect credit as my sister hadnt paid a store for her purchases and then later was on her credit report and she never went court, or is this something completely different 

 

i never signed credit agreement or received any products,

sorry i just have anxiety and worry even though i know i shouldnt

There was a High Court ruling in 2011 which barred gyms from damaging credit ratings to force consumers to pay gym fees and penalty fees. The case was taken against AMSL Ltd but the ruling set a precedent which applies to similar m/ships.

 

It was a game-changer and since the ruling gym contracts have not been reported to CRA's.
