On the 22/08/2014 my ex wife and myself went to an o2 shop because her 'o2 contract phone had been playing up , she was told she was entitled to a modest upgrade despite having the same phone for at least 4 years, I digress.
Despite the assistant trying to persuade her to go for a new fangled android/iphone she chose a Doro 810 listed as £49.and some pence as she felt it was not 'to fancy'. (please bear in mind she was entitled to an upgrade) .
After changing her plan she then paid the assistant the £49. and some pence for the phone and signed an agreement. When I read the agreement it was in actual fact a credit agreement to pay for the phone.
Amount of credit £96.00
Total amount to pay £105.99
Cash price to buy outright £126.00
Are you with me so far
she the signed an agreement to pay o2 £22.00 per month, £18.00 for the contract, calls etc and £4.00 per month for the phone.
My story of woe goes on.
She (my ex) asked me on the 07/02/2015 to take her to the o2 shop as her new phone was faulty (speaker not working) this I did.
I dropped her to the shop and she came out some 30mins later and told me her phone would be ready in 3/4 days and they would send it to her. She also said the assistant tried to persuade her to pay off the £75.00 owing on the phone and upgrade (again) she declined.She did ask if it was possible to get a loan phone, but was told none were available.
The assistant then took out her 'simm 'card and said all your contacts have gone, the imbecile did not even check or ask if he should back up her contacts on the simm card.
She phoned the shop a couple of times after the period had expired and was told it was on it's way to her, she spoke to the manageress who confirmed it was on its way and had been dispatched on Wednesday 11/02/15.( she told an untruth) she then phoned head office in 'slough' who told her the same,' yes it's been repaired and is on it's way'
Monday16/02/15 still no phone.
Tuesday 17/02/15 still no phone. She phoned the shop, the assistant said the manageress was on a call, she phoned head office and was told they were sending a new phone, but they couldn't give a date as they had NO STOCK.
She then told o2 she was fed up and angry and was going to cancel the contract, the response,
Fine said she, do what you like, you have told me lies. I forgot to add that TELEFONICA UK LTD is the apparent owner of o2. for your own sake avoid this company, they are not interested in customer care just new sales and more money from YOU the poor sucker who unwittingly enter their shops and believe the lies they tell you.. I would also like to add that my ex wife is a pensioner and I feel that they have taken advantage of her years and trusting nature. Shame on you o2
I made a payment to a company called Line Products ltd. My payment was somehow redirected thru Nochex, a company I had never heard of. I assumed it be the way payments were made to line products. I made a number of purchases from ' line products' and all seemed to be ok. Now it appears 'line products are in difficulty, I am awaiting an o/s order. when I try to contact Nochex and submit a complaint/claim I am unable to log in and put my problem to them.
It would appear that you have to register with them, giving them all my bank details etc. Why was I never asked to do this before they took my first payment. When I try to click on the Nochex 'links' they supplied with my payments , they come up as 'Blocked'. seems to be some kind of blocking tactic employed by 'nochex' to stop people from contacting them.. So beware people if the name 'Nochex' appears , steer well clear ( this also applies to 'Line Products'

Tip for consumers: Nochex intervened on my behalf and line products promised a refund, however I do not appear to have received the refund yet. When I do I will let you know

Hello Robert,

I am sorry you have not received your goods. Don't worry, there is no need to register with Nochex or give us your bank details in order to claim a refund. Have you tried contacting Line Products?

If you have had no response from Line Products please email the details of your order to explaining what has happened and my colleague will be able to assist you with your order.

It's a con, pure and simple. You buy credits and then these credits are used to bid with. If you actually manage to win a bid you then have to pay for the item you have purchased separately ,regardless of how many 'credits' you have. it's win win for ' , but lose lose for us poor suckers.
