Registered a Default with Credit Reference Agencies

Last year ordered a Virginmedia Volt Bundel which ended up not being installed because of technical issues. The order was cancelled and the installation did not take place, but a few months later I was checking my credit file and saw a default of £432.32 from O2.

i have had no communication from O2 regarding this and I tried to get O2 to remove this from my credit file as it’s wrong. I call O2 on a number of occasions to get this removed and I have been told I do not owe any money, but I can’t get the default removed from my credit file, and this is now having a detrimental effect on my credit file so much so my bank has removed my overdraft and my credit cards have removed special balance transfers terms. I have been told three times it’s been sorted but it has not, and is still showing default. The last time I spoke with O2 I was told it’s sorted but will not be removed from the credit reference agencies for 60days which by that time my credit will be destroyed. I am looking for advice here having talked with the relevant regulatory people who can’t help including the credit agencies. Is the only way left is by taking O2 to court which I will do if I have to. Beware if your thinking about using O2 as your telecommunications provider.

This is not O2 and we are all customers here similar to yourself and cannot answer account type queries.
