Virgin have been loading my direct debit maxed out every bundle, without gaining my permission, not able to access online what theyve been charging me for. A contract is an invitation to treat, but we never asked for this stuff. Were trusting they would only charge us for what we asked. Never signed anything to enter into these extras. In effect they are plundering my Bank account without my permission, then not clarifying the extra charges no itemised breakdown of the bill. FRAUD

“If there are any changes to the amount, date or frequency of your Direct Debit the organisation will notify you (normally 10 working days) in advance of your account being debited or as otherwise agreed. If you request the organisation to collect a payment, confirmation of the amount and date will be given to you at the time of the request” — source: Direct Debit Guarantee
So that includes services Ive never asked for, legally they just start charging for products you cannot use never asked for cannot see itemised on your account. So the Gas company Direct debit can charge me for Elephant food on the same principle. ( Oh but I don't own an Elephant )
I have never been sold these products, they have just slipped them in because no doubt it boosts someones sales figures. That still smells of FRAUD to me
Confusion firstly said she would get my records, then rang me back didn't have a clue, said I must have signed something on paper or electronically, then went right off script ( after I said I had never ) saying I was at fault for not checking my account. ( Its not possible online, the paper record doesnt itemise so havn't got a clue, what the charges are, some items are abbreviated " Tivo " ) Theyve basically maxed my account we havn't even got a Tivo box connected. We have questioned them before. We get people from Virgin ringing us who we cannot speak to as they don't speak English well. I didn't sign a contract with a company from Outer Mongolia so why am I expected to get proper advice from someone that's not used to the nuances of the English language. Someone somewhere in Virgin gets sales rewards for cheating Direct Debit accounts. If you are from Virgin youre not helping or understanding breaking laws or ethical practises. I havn't got an Elephant so I don't need Virgin charging me for Elephant food.
