AOL have written off my debt :)


[link to this post]
 
I left AOL for Post Office in January - best thing I've ever done.

They said I was still in a contract til April and charged me £54.

I ignored it but kept an eye on the account to see if they would take it further.

They have now written it off smile

I wouldn't be so sure that your AOL romance is over. Pipex and other ex Tiscali group companies (AOL was Tiscali owned) suddenly started chasing 3 or 4 year old "debt" recently.

When I say they have written off my debt they have credited back the amount they said was owing so the balance now says zero

Incorrect. AOL is owned by TalkTalk, it never was owned by Tiscali.

You are correct. However, my defence is that given that unholy trilnity all inhabit the bottom of the same slimy pit, it was a very easy mistake to make. smile

You're confusing "owned by" and "trading as", there's a difference.

The FACTS:

Talk Talk was originally the consumer telecomms part of CPW group before demerging into it's own named group. It bought AOL UK then a couple of years later bought Tiscali.
