The MD is Jamie Stefan Kordecki (Polish name, born in England only about 28 yrs old) and his PA is Natalie Evans. They are based on:-
Red Star, 4th Floor,
St George's House
56 Peter Street
I am taking legal advice on suing them... these are the people and companies that fair trading companies should be targeting and have the powers to prosecute, close down in an hour and put in prison for harassment. Directors, their PAs and their Employees- there should be no place for them to hide under the law.... but us, being one consumer it's very difficult, costly and time consuming to bring legal action to an outfit such as this and gathering evidence of phone calls is proving difficult. If ANYONE knows of a way to nail these idiots please post it here- we've got to fight them.
They are by far one of the most unethical companies I have EVER dealt with and are trying to get money from me without having provided the service they offered.
I am also seeking legal advice against them and will fight my case to the end, and so should all others in this position. I am sure there will be many of us.
What you say is correct and typical, constant harassment day in and day out.
PLEASE DON'T ANYONE ELSE FALL INTO THEIR TRAP..STAY WELL AWAY
They have been ringing for days I finally answered
Today. They wanted to send someone to my house with paperwork
I told them to out it in post
They asked when I'd be signing
Thanks to your comments I intend to return
The paperwork unsigned
Tom: have you had a balance of over £2,000 on a credit card?
Me: no, I've spent £1,800 max.
Tom gets Les back on the line and tells him we don't meet their threshold and will have to hand it back. Les is now a little annoyed:
Les: I thought you said you had spent over £2,000 on a credit card
Me: I have, just not all at once. Sorry I must have misunderstood you
Les:........Its ok, let me just try another number...
He now gets Iain from a completely differently named company and goes through some details with him
Iain: So you had a maximum of £1,800 on an RBS card?
me: I'm not sure which card it was, it's been ten years
Iain, then gets Les back on the phone and says as the client cant confirm which card it was, he'll have to give the call back
Les (now noticably annoyed): I thought you said it was an RBS card???
me: I said I think its an RBS card......Wait. Yes, it definitely was an RBS card...sorry.
Les: No problem, let me get you onto my supervisor
Mark, form a completely different named company takes the call
Mark: Hi, so you had a balance on an RBS card you were paying monthly?
Me: Yes, but I paid the full amount off before the interest free period ended is that a problem?
Pretty sure Les cut me off at that point.
Your interest payment details are not in the public domain. So, he has just admitted an offence.
There are two ways:
1 - having the data unlawfully
2 - making it up and steering the conversation to make you give up data without realising it.
Pick the biggest card provider and statistically you are going to get it right more often than not. If you get it wrong, the person says I never had a card with xyz. However, they will try steer the conversation to get you to name your card provider.
