Lets you record all your communications
One of the most important aspects of a complicated issue is keeping a record of all your correspondence regarding the complaint – Resolver does this for you automatically.
Lets you know when to escalate your complaint
If you’re not satisfied with the initial response from the organisation you have an issue with, our escalation process will let you know when you can raise your complaint to the next level of seniority and, ultimately to an ombudsman or regulator, where appropriate.
If you spot a transaction on your bank statement from a phone-paid service that you don’t recognise, you should use Resolver to contact the service provider and ask for more information, proof of purchase and potentially a refund if the purchase was not legitimate.
Firms have to be clear and up-front with you about any charges. If you’re being charged for a service you didn’t agree to, you have the right to claim a refund.
In the event that the firm isn’t willing to co-operate, your bank may be able to help. You should consider contacting them and explaining the situation.
If you are still unable to get a satisfactory resolution, you may be able to escalate your case to the Phone-paid Services Authority (PSA). The PSA has been approved by Ofcom as the regulator of phone-paid services in the UK, and can take action against a service provider on your behalf.
When contacting the Phone-paid Services Authority, you should supply the name of the service provider or the phone-paid service number involved, a copy of the text message itself confirming the subscription or payment, and any other information on your telephone bill that might help identify the service.
