This bogus non existant company  ( ferdamia investments ) charging me £4.50 weekly for apparently 'video streaming ' for  past 5 months...although o2 is aware of this bogus company from previous o2 customers complaints , o2 has continued to allow this company to take money off my bank .

the tel no given by o2 call center is another bogus number- 08455571267....and their e-mail is also bogus e-mail address...one address is in cyprus with tel no-+1235235598 which takes you to british time keeping .

WILL O2 DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT - I LOST OVER £100 SINCE ALL  THIS STARTED

@louloune1 Why have you allowed this to continue every week for five months? Why didn't you inform your bank to discontinue making the payments?

Charge to mobile most likely, the charges were probably included in the phone bills.

As it stands currently @louloune1 the onus is on you (the customer) to chase the company for a refund, but you can ask o2 to put a bar on your account which should prevent any further charges.

You need to ask customer services to: 

  • Bar all Direct to Bill Debits 
  • Premium Bar 

Sadly until regulation is changed, there's not much else you can do.
