M&J Acquisition scam!!!

I am in a terrible mess with the company name M&J Acquisitions Ltd.

I was happy with my old contract with O2 . On 31st of August 2018 I received an unsolicited call from Jason who said that he was calling from O2 , he promised me a discount on my monthly payments , he said that new contract with O2 also will be for 24 months. When I realised that I was tricked I cancelled the "electronic contract " straight away but they said that there is no cooling off period. O2 also refused to help .

My old contract with O2 was for 24 months 62 f monthly (IPhone + sim ) NOW I have to pay termination fee for my old contract 760f plus 52f monthly for SIM CARD ONLY for  36 MONTHS for this new O2 business contract!!!  Great deal....no

They call it a business contract but I am NOT a business. I am affected by a serious disease and all this stress is making me sick.

M & J Acquisitions Ltd. said that they will pay termination fee but they never did. They try to force me to sign more papers/statements and give them all my bank details, driving licence etc. in order to maybe pay this termination fee back to my account. They also refused to give me the recording of my telephone conversation with "Jason". Can somebody please help me what should I do now???

Maybe admin can help too. Asked to merge, multiple posts are pointless but it shows how desperate the OP is for help.

Re: M&J Acquisition scam!!!

Thanks for your reply Cleoriff and Regal. I am really desperate to solve this problem that is why I put many posts. Sorry but I am new to this forum. I just had a phone call from this "Jason" from M&J Acquisition again saying that O2 will cancel my posts here.. What about the freedom of speech? He wants me to sign statements  and give him copy of my documents etc. so they can pay termination fee for old contract. I am scared to give them any more details so I have already paid termination fee for my old contract (760 f) by myself...

 I can not even complaint about them to Ombudsman Services because they are NOT a communications company only brokers.

I don't know how they can wake up in the morning knowing that they are tricking vulnerable people into taking business contracts. I am with O2 for 10 years and now I am really disappointed with their "trusted partners". Now if I want to cancel this "new contract" I will have to pay 1500 f...

@Odi

Jason from MJ Aquisitions has absolutely nothing to do with this forum so telling you your posts will be cancelled is rubbish.

We have heard of others conned by this company into a contract they neither want or need. The name of Jason was mentioned in that post as well. He sounds like a nasty piece of work.

On one of your previous threads I have asked if our community managers @Martin-O2 @Marjo and @EmilieT can help in these exceptional circumstances.

Re: M&J Acquisition scam!!!

You may not be able to complain to M&J but you can complain to O2 and the Ombudsman if that fails https://www.o2.co.uk/how-to-complain but, wait to see if our community team can help you first.

Re: M&J Acquisition scam!!!

Thanks Cleoriff and M15 for your posts. I did call to complain about them to Ombudsman but they said that  because M&J Acquisition are NOT a communications company (only brokers) they were unable to help. They can only help to deal with complaints about communications companies that are signed up to an approved redress scheme. M&J are not on that list..
