credit file affected due to £18 bill , no letters sent

Anonymous
Not applicable

switched from carphone warehouse to tesco last june 2012 {HusbandS contract}

phoned to check if he owed outstanding bill, reply was no.

last week 21/2/13 phone call of debt collecters saying he owed £18 and had defaulted. not through carphone warehouse but network supplier o2.

equired and was told they dont send letters , as my preffered contact method was text/voice alerts. one snt back in july/august last year which i didnt recieve

now our credit file has gone red due to default from august 2012, always been green, no missed payments etc or direct debits.

aked web chat address for complaint, told i can not complain as no longer customer and time elasped.and she didnt have address to complain and they dont have access to it.

disgusted no letters sent from aug to present date, funny how debt agency got hold of us straight away though, saying i owed £18, as i took it from carphone warehouse my balance was zero.

disgusted with this and will never use this company again, waiting till my contract runs out and swithing suppliers asap.

has affected my credit file and all because they admitted they havent sent letters

i now await my compliant outcome.

any replys appreciated , been ill with worry, defaults stay on credit file 6 years etc and dont understand why carephone warehouse said zero balance but i owe 02 network .

As said contact Customer Services not the chat live.

If you don't sort this quickly then your credit file will be affected for some years even if you paid it off.

If 02 sort this then also send off to experian to check your file has been repaired and if not you can appeal.

I would of thought 02 would need to provide some written support that they were in error.

Then your credit file would be expunged.

Sounds to me like a horrible admin error between Tesco and O2. Who the blame lies with is diffcult to say. 

I would be putting pressure on Tesco as well as they were who you had your contract with. Maybe hitting it from both sides will speed things up. 

Good luck and let us know how you get on.

hi everyone

 

thankyou for all comments left.

finally excellent news

 

 2 missed call todays from o2 but checked emails when i got home from work and email states 02 error, they admitted that they sent no letters , and couldnt prove that they sent voice/text alert to say i owed final bill of £18.87. so admitted fault is theirs.

 

 informed my credit file will be updated in 30 days and default removed.

so happy its been dealt with.

 

thanks again for all your help
