- Win some, lose some, but yeah f.. K them. It's actually quite funny, because orange and t mobile being part of the same group, very happily gave me a contract. I thought it hilarious..... Up yours orange, oh, and I get to use your shared mast, ha ha ha!!Jan 8, 2013
- thanks for that. But it sounds so strange. Never heard of this tbh. Why would anyone in thier right mind sign a new contract agreeing to allow bailiffs to bang on thier door. I'm sure it's not worded that way lol but still.. it must have a mention re transfer of debt?
Thanks for answering my qs btwJan 8, 2013
- as said above, some people do panic. Or they don't understand the law on this as I do. Just don't ever sign or read or answer anything. In order for them to take you to court, they have to send you the relevant paperwork, if you do not receive any, then you know you are fine despite their threats and harassment. They will hound you as much as possible to get you to sign or agree but if you don't, they cannot touch you. Never ever give in.....Jan 8, 2013
- Super advice. Thanks guys.
I thought that if they continue to send you letters... they end up threatning you with court action. Pretending you never got thier letters wouldn't cut the mustard cos they could always discreetly send you a sign for service letter. I suppose you really gotta be on the ball and not accept anything you are not expecting.
Predicament is.. how do you pretend not to have received any letters and accuse them of harassment too lol. Phone calls I guess.

- To continue sending letters and threatening you is one thing, they do that to intimidate you in the hope you get worried and give in. Jan 8, 2013
