Plusnet ruined my credit report and hasn't fixed it

I left Plusnet about 2 years ago and I was on a 30 days contract sum card, which I cancelled before leaving, since then, plusnet was sending me emails saying that they are taking payments from me for about 2-3 months. In my credit report it shows that I have about £50 in Late payments although I don't owe any money. I contacted plusnet about this and they haven't resolved anything and just told me to wait, Is there a way to speed this up as I cannot apply for loans and overdrafts as these false late payments are preventing me from doing so.

Re: Plusnet ruined my credit report and hasn't fixed it

Good afternoon Amor00 

You should log a formal complaint asking what is being done to sort this problem out advising PlusNet that it is affecting your credit rating and you are very unhappy and want compensation for the distress caused and your credit rating sorted

You should wait six to eight weeks for PlusNet sort and if nothing is done to your satisfaction you should complain to the Ombudsman Services who PlusNet are a member

I would think the Ombudsman is having many complaints about PlusNet's new billing system

I would also consider a report to the Information Commissioner for failure to hold/ report correct information, under GDPR.

When plusnet tell you to wait

say NO - unless they confirm what they are doing - in writing

Re: Plusnet ruined my credit report and hasn't fixed it

The official path for individual issue resolution is through the ombudsman/CISAS schemes

 

OFCOM do not investigate individual complaints

BUT

anyone wishing to raise their failed billing and restriction, or double billing due to these ongoing Plusnet system issues with OFCOM

 

Use the OFCOM online report form,

https://ofcomforms.secure.force.com/formentry/SitesFormCCTMonitoring

and you can use a Heading of Plusnet Billing System Issues OFCOM REF: 00688755

 

OFCOM do not address individual issues, but DO compile information and address widespread 'issues' with Companies - as Plusnet already knows.
