Oh what has happened to my lovely efficient Virgin. I was contacted earlier this month and as a 'longstanding and valued customer' offered an upgrade to my handset and contract. I agreed a new phone and contract package which worked out a couple of pounds more than I pay now. The operative ran a credit check and told me they would contact me within 48 hours. The credit check showed up on my credit report so I assumed all was well.
One week later no callback. Contacted Virgin explained previous conversation but they could find no record of my order. They wanted to redo the upgrade request which would have been fine but needed a further credit check. As repeated checks can have a negative impact an my credit report I asked them to use the one from previous week. That couldn't be done so they said they would chase up my original offer and would phone back.
another week later no call. Again I contacted them to have the same conversation and am now waiting a call from underwriters? Really? I have a excellent credit rating what's the problem? Has anyone else has similar problems?
