I told the TV licence people that i changed bank about 2 weeks ago on-line.

Now they keep sending me direct debit forms, which i have already completed.

They are completely carp at their jobs!

Hope you get it sorted soon x x

yes i have proof the direct debits have been coming out of my account

I dont see how they can be saying that you need one since its not the person its the property that needs one, makes no sense.
#6
seek legal advice and sue them for distress, it's time we were given the option with regards to paying for the BBC rather than being forced to.

i know its really annoying, seems to always happen to me tho, paid a debt off with 02 when i had paid it all they sold it to a debt collector, even tho 02 said they would sort it out and me telling the debt company i had paid it, still the debt collectors are sending me letters and calling, even tho ive sent them my bill saying i owed nothing, i call 02 every other month saying the debt company are still after me and them telling me they will sort it out this has been going for just over 2 years now, and the debt company just tell me that 02 sold them the debt so there after the money, how annoying

i had a letter a while back. i have lived at my address for several years and have been paying my tv licence happily by direct debit each month. then my lovely other half brought me a new tv ! he did'nt think about it at the time but gave his name but my address as the tv was for me. then i kept getting letters about him not having a tv license.

surely they should be able to see that the postcode he gave has a license !!! they do just make it hard work really !! lol

these letters they send

has anyone noticed the part that tells you to inform them of your licence number?

do you not stop to think that if you furnished them with this info (that granted they could easily find themselves) then the letters and hassle would stop?

As for suing for distress..................get a grip, you would be thrown out of court with a bill for both yours and the other party's expenses

I emailed them all my details, including my licence number.

They are incompetent :roll:

An ex's new partner shown them old catalogue invoices in my name when caught without a licence at her house, I got a fine of £1000 fine and told the magistrate to stuff it where the sun don't shine and that handwriting analysis would show it wasnt me that signed it, this was three and a half years ago and not heard a dicky bird since, I did get a free afternoon in the cells though for my verbal abuse of the magistrate!

"You need a TV Licence to use any television receiving equipment such as a TV set, digital box, DVD or video recorder, PC, laptop or mobile phone to watch or record television programmes as they're being shown on TV."

What!!! You need a license for your mobile phone......................oh my dayz

Why should we have to? If they just looked on their bloody systems they would see a valid license was at that address. The phone call isn't free either and it's such a waste of our time :x buy a video card for your computer, you get these as well it's idiotic!

Totally agree. Talk about a waste of money sending all these letters out!

I had a row with them a couple of years ago when I had a PC tuner card delivered to my Father in Laws shop. (Purely so it could be signed for.) I was a bit worried I'd dropped him in the poo by the delivery, but he had a licence for the shop anyway. When I asked why they werent doing their job properly and look at the address on their system, they replied "the address could be rooms for rent and as such each residence needing its only license".

I translated that to mean they are lazy gits who are incapable of doing the job correctly they are paid to do.

It must take all of 5 minutes to program the part of the system that issues these letters to check if a licence exists at the proerty they are sending a letter to! Or is that me being too naive :)

I had a licence but the nice inspector guy still knocked on my door demanding to see the licence, I told him I'd look for it and left him outside in the pouring rain whilst I made myself some grub.

Wiped the smarmy "i've got you" grin off his face when I returned with every licence I'd held for the last 10 years! :-D
