I am not impressed AT ALL!

I left work early this afternoon to sign up for a mobile phone contract, complete with an iphone.

Anyone who has signed up for a mobile contract will know A LOT of checks are done before you are accepted into the ‘contract club’. Everything was going well – they verified me as a safe human being, and not a member of Al-qaeda. My current flat passed the test as a nice, well-kept home and not a crack den.

Then they wanted to know about my previous address. That’s when the problems started. Between February 2006 and February 2007, I lived in a shared house. Turns out some useless idiot I used to live with has been bad and blacklisted the address, and in turn my own, personal credit rating!

Until I clear my name, I am screwed. Unable to get loan. Unable to obtain a mortgage. Unable to get a mobile phone contract!

If I was at fault, I would accept the problem and deal with it, but I am 100% certain I am innocent. I have always paid my bills on time. I have never owned a credit card. I have an overdraft, but have maintained my finances so well, I have never used it!

After an evening of stress, I have some numbers to ring. I hope I get somewhere with this, because it simply isn’t fair how I should suffer like this because of a poorly organised credit-rating system, and a moron who isn’t able to maintain his/her own money.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
