I usually pay my TV license on a Thursday, by installments obviously. For the first time last week i jibbed payment with the full intention of paying double this week.
Today, i get a text informing me that i'm behind...
My mum has just rang me! Tv licensing have just rang her, asking for me!!! How the duck did they get her number? At 38 years of age i'm finding myself explaining to my mum why they looking for me? Am fuming! Opinions please apart from the 'pay ya bills on time' and 'we dont get an installment option' Brigade. My issue here is Data Protection.

Huh, my case is too sensitive, i`m with vodaphone which my girlfriend got me, i was asked to set up a `password` to access my account when i ring up, anyway, they have obviously missheard me as my password `sounds like` the password they have.!
i only wanted to know when my next bill was due but i got the `unable to speak to you without the password due to the Data protection act` crap!

i would`nt need to speak to them but they cannot be trusted, the 1st bill was taken out of somebody elses bank who i`ve never heard of??? (that was sorted but i bet the other person got charged by the bank), then the second bill was alright but the third bill i was charged TWICE! mad so now due to THIER errors i have to check to see when my bill is due & if it has been paid BUT due to their mess up and the `data protection act` i cannot even find out that! smack

I havent got a clue how they got my mums number!!! I left home at 18 years old. Lived in 3 or 4 addresses since! My point being how fookin dare they involve my mum? And how have they traced me back?
we are talking a 4 day late overdue payment not a 5 yr "a squirrel shit in the tele" avoidant payer.

dont sound right for being 4 days late, it costs money to trace peeps but it is pretty easy, sounds ridiculous over a 4 day mispayment though! Ask your mum to do the 1471 thing and see what comes up?

Why the fook should i be put in a posistion where i have to explain my financial situation to my mum, who is now 'concerned' about it, as a daughter i have had to disclose personal details, to my mother. Personal stuff, that at 38 years of age ive had to explain!

Hmm. Very strange. Highlights something I've always been avid about - most government organisations have access to knowledge bases and search systems that we just dare not think about.

I'd be livid too thats for sure. Being late with a payment is nobodies business but yours, amazing that they called your mum.

-> Maybe you have ECHELON involvement wink -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Echelon_%28signals_intelligence%29
