    TV Licensing. 7th Oct 16 at 1:40 PM
    First off, apologies in advance if this thread is in the wrong place.

    I have been trying to contact TV Licensing to make my monthly payment on my licence "bribe" which I do every month and pay on my debit card to prove beyond doubt that I have paid should they try to prosecute me for non payment.

    I have spoken to no less than 10 "front line staff" who were bullying, and threatening me in to telling them who I am and my personal info when I only deal with one specific manager (who I know by name and have a direct line for) but has now strangely refused to take my calls for being allegedly "abusive". Stating, what is a fact, that I am not obliged to provide any details to speak to a manager is not abusive, nor is quoting the Data Protection Act and the Human Rights Act 1998.

    While writing this, I got a call from 01772832000 which has been reported to be Iqor, some kind of debt recovery company who I told on 2nd September 2010 in writing never to contact me again and that if they did, I would file a complaint with the police for harassment and seek a court injunction against them.

    The problem there is that I call this manager when I pay my monthly installment on my licence. I do it every 2 weeks like clockwork, now all the sudden this. Now they demand that I contact them in writing. Why on earth would I send them my debit card details in writing? Are they stupid or just plain fraudsters and criminals?

    I have now refused to pay my licence until I get what I am entitled to and not be threatened or bullied by someone on the phone hundreds of miles away in a completely different county. I just don't understand this or the reasons for it. It's almost as though they get some kind of twisted satisfaction out of purposely annoying people.

    I shall leave it there otherwise I will end up ranting, and I don't want to do that here.

    This is far from being a new problem for the OP and has been on going for at least 4 years.
