Consumer Underwriting services

I have on my experian credit report a defaulted account with virgin media, which i beleive i sorted out last year (and is reflected as such on my equifax credit report)

I have written to the consumer underwriter dept and heard nothing back. Please can someone provide me the email address that people seem to have had luck with in the past?

 

TIA

Re: Consumer Underwriting services

I have been with virgin for 2yrs now no missed payments and now I have come to upgrade my phone and I've been turned down. I even have tv for over 9yrs and now broadband for 12 months. Any ideas why.

Re: Consumer Underwriting services

I have had Virgin Media broadband and TV account for a few years and decided to switch to a Virgin Mobile contract with an expensive phone and having gone through an online credit check and completed a direct debit mandate, the order was confirmed online. (The monthly tariff is £40 over 3 years, £2 more than I am paying now). A little later I received an email confirming the order but asking me to phone sales to give them more information only to be told that my credit rating was not good enough. I immediately went on Experian and found that my credit score is 999- as high as you can get. I am stunned- what are Virgin Mobile playing at??

Re: Consumer Underwriting services

A follow up on this. I used the email address and thanks for this got a positive reply within the day asking me to contact them. Apparently it was not explained to me by sales that being a 1st time mobile customer there are restrictions on the handset eligibillity which is much better than having an inadequate credit rating!! Better still they have agreed to lift the threshold a good result and my faith in Virgin Media is restored!!

Hi,

I've been referred to that e-mail and received an instant reply saying the mailbox is no longer in use, any ideas?
