I got a call a few months back from a company called Vardis. They tried to get me to sign up to have my chocolate fountain advert in their brochure. I didn't sign anything. I even sent the proof back and emailed them several times saying I didn't want the advert.
Then I got a bill in the post for £170. I ignored it and have just had a Final Payment reminder saying if I didn't pay they would pass my case onto Crown Debt Recovery.
report them to the office of fair trading or trading standards mate, more than likely this 'vardis' company an 'crown debt recovery' will be probably already been investigated, looks like your not the only victim!
Hope you get it sorted pal! hehe... they might send the lads round to collect otherwise
Got yet another letter today from Crown debt recovy saying they are going to take me to Liverpool County Court if I don't pay by Monday 25th August. Apparently I owe£170.38 + £35.00 recovery charge = £205.38.
