Hello again

Some of you may remember me from the early part of the year but 02 still wont shut the account and now they will not discuss this with us what so ever as its fraud

All the c/s can do is email the fraud dept who will phone us back which even though we tell hem they dont they insist they will and this has been going round in circles for months.

02 own customer complaints policy states that we need to speakl wit a manager before referring to the ombudsman (as a very last resort) does anybody have any idea how to do this?

Which brings me onto my next question reading a which article on how to do this referal it says i need to find out which one 02 belong too does anyone have any idea who the ombudsman is for 02?

Thanks for any helpo you can give me as its been going on for months and my daughter still has a totally trashed credit score even after promising that will be put right.

If i does go to the ombudsman she will seek compensation for credit searches and other costs associated with this.

Again many thanks for any help on the questions please

It's the communications ombudsman @fitter 

The process is here but basically you need a letter of deadlock from O2 and them you can escalate it.

Thank you for the speedy reply thats the article that iwas refering too and it states that i need to follow 02 complaints procedures (which is impossible to do) before escalating it to them.

And of course i need to find which one 02 belong too aswell

Thanks

well thats where its going to fall down as they wont discuss it at all as its fraud so they wont give me a letter.

 

Will have to look into maybe engaging a solicitor to move this forward

 

As a side note the members on her have been very helpful when i origianlly had this issue and tis is a problem with 02 and not this community

 

thanks for replying
