About to be double charged for Plusnet Mobile

I've got a ticket in for this, Incident: 190217-000204, but I'm not confident it will be addressed as I've had a live chat which went nowhere really, and they wanted be to email a copy of my bank statement which is a totally insecure way of dealing with that information.  I then had a telephone conversation with customer services who really didn't seem to understand the problem and asked me to check with my bank even though I'd already told them I had actually done that.

 

My problem is I received the usual monthly email telling me my bill was due and the money would leave my account on 11th March, all good so far, until I noticed the amount was double what it should be; on checking with the Plusnet mobile app I noticed it said January's payment, which is taken out in February, had not been paid, but on checking with my bank I can see that the payment was indeed requested and paid to Plusnet on 11/02/2019.  In the support ticket I've raised I've attached a redacted screen grab from the web page of my bank showing the relevant entry in my online statement. My bank has also informed me that the direct debit mandate reference number was first used in January, where there was no problem, which implies Plusnet seems to have changed the mandate reference from December

 

I've had no problems with any other Direct Debits, has anyone else had this issue or can some help with this

Re: About to be double charged for Plusnet Mobile

Hello Adam

 

I've sent you another private message, but I'm not sure whether I'm back where I started, which is still paying double for February, even though the payment from my bank didn't fail and got to Plusnet.  I just feel like I've gone in a circle

 

I don't know whether anyone else is having the same issue i.e. the Bank saying it was paid in February and account has been debited and Plusnet saying it failed processing

 

Thanks, in advance

No worries, I don't give in easily! I probably look more like a cross between a bulldog and a beared collie than a terrier though Wink

Re: About to be double charged for Plusnet Mobile

I have the same problem. Spoke to customer service representative earlier today and he was unable to help, suggested sending copy of bank statement to prove that direct debit had been paid. Pretty unsatisfactory really.

Received this email on 11th January 2019 - COINCIDENCE MAYBE !

 

You may recall an email we sent back in June letting you know about a small change to the way we process Direct Debit payments. 
The change was delayed due to external factors, but we wanted to let you know that it will now be taking place from 28th January 2019.
There's nothing you need to do, the only change you'll see is where previously you will have seen 'London & Zurich' on your statements, this will change to say 'Plusnet'. Your Direct Debit Guarantee still applies as before.
If you have any questions, please give our friendly, UK based call centre a call on 0800 079 1133 or call 500 for free from your mobile.
Thanks, The Plusnet Mobile Team

Hi @Dafydd8

 

Thanks for getting in touch.

 

For clarity, the changes you've referenced above haven't taken place yet, so won't have affected your payment.

 

I've tracked the account which is linked to your forum account and email address and can't see any billing issues, or contact since some time ago (last year).

 

If you have more than one account, could you please pop your username across via a PM so that we can investigate this for you?

 

Just reply here when you've sent the PM.

 

Best wishes

 

Dave

Re: About to be double charged for Plusnet Mobile

Hi Dave.

I have only one mobile account.

The reference on the direct debit has changed in February from that being used in previous months.

From PLUSNET MOBILE

To PLUSNET PLC PAY AC

Are you able to check why this occurred?
