can somebody please help or advise me, out of the blue some three weeks ago I received a bill from BT asking for £78.14 it was sent to an old address I use to live at, now for the past 3 to 4 years I didn't have a BT account and used sky and virgin so to get a bill from bt was a suprise however the bill doesn't go into any detail to what it is for so I call BT got through to the Indian call centre and was told it was for a premium email or that's what I think they were telling me that dates back 7 or 8 years and only now have they decided that I owe money to them to my knowledge I don't have such a thing and told the person this and left it at that.
now I have received a debt letter again with no explanation just a pay up or else you may end up in court obviously I'm very concerned and am worried, it's almost impossible to get through to someone in the uk to try and sort it out so this forum seems to be a good place to start
thank you in advance if anyone can help me
Solved! Go to Solution.
Don't ignore it. There should be contact details on the letter you received from the Debt Agency. Contact them and ask for the full details in relation to the alleged debt and any reference numbers. Tell them that you are disputing the debt with BT.
This should stop them from taking any further action until the dispute is resolved.
You then have to contact BT and advise them that you are disputing the debt and want a full explanation as to what the debt is.
Once you have that information you will be better informed as to what course of action you should take.
Have a look at this link and in particular about the length of time the debt has been out standing. It may be relevant to you.
The letter is from BT debt recovery unit final reminder, I have written them a letter tonight
