Credit Check System Left Me Phoneless

[ Edited ]

So I recently took out a contract (12 Days ago) for a Oneplus 3t in store and everything went well and I got the contract, then Oneplus decided to make a more beautiful colour of the phone which came in a 'Midnight Black' I was advised that the only way to change the colour would be to cancel the initial contract and take out another but it was online only offer. I proceded to do so only to find that the credit check in the final step of an online purchase would deny me even though I had contract literally days ago, I found that because I had done a credit check in store and another one online they were done too close together. So now I can't get another contract out and I'm forced to leave 02 who have the Oneplus exclusivley.

 

-Moral of the story checking your credit score brings down your credit store (Oh the irony!!!) :@-

 

Has anyone had this sort of problem? I've emailed the credit check email still waiting on a reply. As of now my hands are tied.

It's common of any credit check system. Too many too close together will get a refusal but in fairness you should have been warned.

Appeal directly to o2 and they will overturn the decline. It's all computerised and the fact you passed days before shows it's clearly a restriction to avoid fraud. You've returned one and therefore when you appeal common sense will kick in

True I learnt the hard way, was only told if I fail a credit check it would affect my credit rating but thought I would be okay as I got a contract in store.

Think you need to write in to credit referrals . They might be able to do it by phone. @Anonymous will be able to confirm

Re: Credit Check System Left Me Phoneless

There is no public phone number for credit referrals as they aren't customer facing.
They may call you if you request it but no guarantee.
