The salient point of this thread is to ascertain if this practice is widespread by VM (or any other company) but it doesn't seem to be as nobody has mentioned thus far that it has happened to them or someone they know. This pleases me immensely.

If its none of my business then why are you posting it on a public forum? What, that I think you could be making it up? I don't think that's ridiculous considering.

It's already been explained why I have posted about this. I know that you like to ask questions about things that have been clearly explained to you over and over again; try reading and digesting things instead.

The persons name is irrelevant and remains none of your business, but it's not about this is it? It's a further example of you stirring things up.

To clarify, I didn't 'make it up' as you put it. Adults don't tend to do that sort of thing, not that I would expect you to understand.

This conversation is now closed.

You don't get to close conversations Richard. You get to ignore me if you so wish though.

It remains my business if I want to know as you're posting on a public forum. You can choose not to tell me, that's fine.

Adults lie all the time, not sure where you've picked up they don't tend to lie.

All this over a simple question, bit ridiculous Richard.

Re: VM trying to collect old Telewest debt.

Im not buying this, the debt information will still be available if it is this old. The current database goes beyond 20 years for old accounts in ex-Telewest areas. Ex-NTL is a different story as they used a combination of different billing systems (SABS, ICMS) before they were migrated to ICOMS but Telewest has always used this platform. Birmingham cable/Yorkshire Cable group was the exception as they used Cablemaster but that was migrated some 15 years ago and the historical data was transferred as well.

Im also not sure why this person has written to someone in Scotland the billing and collections team are in Bradford, used to be in Birmingham... the only offices in Scotland are technical and the outsourced customer care centres in Lanarkshire/Glasgow.

And Bytel was used in a lot of the C&W Comms areas (ex-Jones Cable in Leeds/Harrogate & Watford, Peterborough Cable, Norwich Cable, Encom in Docklands)

Re: VM trying to collect old Telewest debt.

I doubt this story If I'm honest is debt not statute barred after six years? meaning they can't pursue you for the debt. Just another wild story from Mr Coulter.

A debt that is statue barred can still be pursued, just not through the legal system.
I can't say I blame VM for wanting a debt paid before allowing a customer to sign up again, regardless of how old the debt is.

If you read the full thread you will see the answer to your question. You haven't provided any examples to back up your last remark, so it must be assumed you are just talking crap again to try & stir things up.

Exactly. It's a shame that others don't get their facts right before trying to be clever as it just makes them look stupid.

It is a typical "Richard" thread where he is "Told" something, believes it and presents nothing to back it up. When challenged resorts to...

Accusing someone of not providing examples when he himself hasn't is rediculous.

Most of my posts don't involve VM and those that do have links where possible. It's hardly surprising that contemporary posts reflect how bad this company has become since LG got their hands on it. There are numerous other people & organisations saying the same thing, including Ofcom.

I don't recall any being "daft".

This thread isn't about me, but the subject in hand.

Nonsense. I was told this & wanted to clarify whether it was true or not. It has been explained why no evidence was provided.

I expect any accusations towards other members to include links to the alleged posts giving rise to the accusation.

This thread is not about me, but the subject in hand. You are free to put me on ignore.

Re: VM trying to collect old Telewest debt.

Richard you do seem to have record of posting " moans" regarding virgin media . With filmsy "links" to say the least . I really fail to understand why you wish to have anything to do with them. As they clearly causing you and your "friends" great troubles why do you not give them up as a bad job ? . It really is time for you to move on . Unless ...........

"This thread isn't about me, but the subject in hand"

the tone of your posts make it seem that it is :
