    Sending texts every day, to chase a debt that I do not owe.

    Aggravated reported Investigator with the number ‎01772836122 as Harassment calls

    8/18/15, 6:20 PM

    I would like to post that although this number is Akinika a company in Preston and debt recover agent. They have a pure automated system, it is linked to TV licensing and unfortunately it is auto transfer. (Akinika do not check if the details are correct.) After 24 hours of their deadline, problem is your details are held on Akinikas system even when they delete records, phone numbers are still in the auto calls so will continue to call, I have tried all traces and no one can find my details listed on any of the systems, I pay my TV license with no problems, I believe someone who has been fed up with the aggravated persistence has now resorted to making up a number, however sometimes they "Get Lucky" I have been asked for another women a Missy ( can't remember surname) this women is using my number, but they still can not find the number on their systems. I think the system for TV and Akinika needs shutting down! Then re-setting as clearly seeing how bad the level of complaints are, and how many are effected, I think TV licensing.gov.uk should think again. Somehow today again another nuisance call, which went straight to voicemail that I had switched off but auto saved, and was unable to catch the number to block. So as you can imagine this a particular problem. With the added shock at one of Akinikas employees writing back in response to the companies nuisance calling, and the sheer cheek of rudeness towards those, that clearly are law abiding regular bill payers. That it is indeed a technical problem that needs investigation and TV licensing is actually largely to blame but take no responsibility for and Akinika are of no help and shrug it off. This is a very annoying aggravating problem that is costing money, and time to those in shift doing real critical jobs that can't be continually woken up for wrong person nuisance calls...Here's another example.. A job is a job, but a call centre person with an attitude problem, is a day to day admin job, that requires no obvious amount of intelligence. However Nurse Doctor or any other vital service personal or those is in critical jobs. Where lives can be at stake, can be continually woken sometimes 3 times a day. If this person is tired and woken up, they can make mistakes! what's to say it doesn't have a bigger picture effect and someone dies as a result, trust me it is not, so far fetched. So as for the foul mouthed call person for Akinika and lured comments, I think she will be have to expect her P45 very soon. I think if there was a way to list a petition to TV licensing to have Akinika stopped until they can cure the problem. Or all write letters to the complaints and I am tempted to write in the media and have them investigated this would have a negative effect of business reputation that may cause something to be done. This seems to be a UK wide problem. I hope this was of use.

    says akinika when I answer, wants me to confirm my address, I says "you rang me, why should I give out my address" they tell me to ring tv licensing, I go behind sometimes, never had this much harassment but since its no longer a criminal offence no wonder they want to intimidate people into paying up

    YourFriendlyFCAAdvisor replied 2/1/18, 4:47 PM
    It is still a criminal offence not to be up to date on your TVL payments. . .That legislation never actually made it out of the committee due to having to deal with brexit etc. . .
    All they did to help people who genuinely are struggling to cover the costs of their T L, is a ‘Conditional Discharge’. Where they essentially let you off with a warning and get you back set up with a new TVL payment scheme, the fine and potential prison time will be in the pipeline should you go down the same route again though.

    Jonnie replied 9/19/17, 9:33 PM
    I get loads of spam calls and this number came up. I didn't speak to them not even a word. I was in arrears with my TV licence by £31 but I've since paid the deficit online and now I'm in credit by £19cr. So if I have to deal directly with a debt collector how is it the TV licencing took my money?

    8/12/17, 9:26 AM

    It's Aknita debt collection on be half of TV license.

    I was on payment card, set up a direct debit, and they can't see my direct debit, even though it was set up on their system.

    They asked me to pay right now, or face prosecution. Laughed at them and told them to wait for my direct debit date next week. All the for about 24£.

    While the numbers right, their tactics are less so.

    I have been getting calls and text messages from this company they have also left me voice mails demanding I phone them . When I looked online it says they are from a catalog . I have never had a catalogue. And it can't be from tv license because I live with my mum and she pays all the tv license bill . I do not need one as I'm living with my mother I don't have a property of my own. And it can't be from eBay either like other people have said on here because I don't use eBay either. In fact I don't shop online . And I'm getting really sick of these calls there making me ill . I have got call blocker on my phone so I might block there number .

    They are the prefered debt collection company for failed TV Licence Payments, when you call the TV Licencing number you automatically get transfered to Aknika.

    i have calls from this number everyday. i have not spoken to anyone but after reading the comments i am glad i havnt, i am behind on my licence by less the £15, yes £15, i have blocked the number and they leave a voicemail telling me it urgent, i will not be phoning them. i have unbloked the number for now so i can tell them where they can shove there debt

    YourFriendlyFCAAdvisor replied 2/1/18, 4:50 PM
    Although you’ve made your intentions clear with the above comment. I feel it’s my obligation to make you aware, that yes £15 is a small amount of money for a debt recovery company and in other non-priority circumstances they wouldn’t dream of taking it on.

    But TVL is a priority bill and it’s a criminal offence to be left unpaid which can lead to a fine for up to £1000 and if the fine is then not paid, prison sentencing. So the amount is fairly irrelevant, it could be a £1 and if ignored log enough could be a fine for £100. . .

    Shewbert reported Akinika Preston with the number ‎+441772836122 as Debt collection company

    11/5/16, 12:58 PM

    I have been recently bombarded with calls, Emails, texts and home phone calls from Akinka Preston.
    Anything up to 50 calls and 30 texts and countless Emails per day.
    I will attempt to explain quickly what happened, I was with TalkTalk internet, their systems were hacked last year and customer details were stolen, my problems started here, my phone was suddenly ringing with scammers attempting to be from Microsoft stating my system had virusses and they will fix it, Tax men sating I will be arrested if I did not pay an outdated tax bill Etc. I ended up changing my phone numbers etc.
    Akinika Preston state that I owe money to Ebay (I have never in my life shopped on the internet, I use the internet only to speak on Skype to my daughter's family in Australia) and receive Emails from family members (I am 86 and not very computer savvy)
    Anyway I phoned this Akinika Preston, the guy on the phone was very rude when I would not give any of my details to them i.e. address, date of birth, phone numbers (he phoned me so he has the number)
    Having had problems with phone scammers before I told him that I am not divulging my details to a stranger on the phone and to please send me details of what they want by mail.
    I received a letter from them which just says call them immediately about a £76.67 Ebay bill, I phoned again, and again they asked for personal details which I refused to do on the phone to a strange so called company and they hung up on me,,, phone calls, messages still resume.
    I have no contracts with Akinika, never bought anything from them, they have even given me a customer number when I have never had anything to do with them.
    How can a company demand money from so called customers when they have no contracts, surely if I had bought from Ebay,, which I have not ,,, the contract would be with them, not Akinika.
    I think this is another scam, they are not having my personal details over the phone as I do not know them, the guy said it was for data protection, but I have to protect my data by not giving it out to everyone willy nilly.

    YourfriendlyFCAAdvisor replied 2/1/18, 4:41 PM
    50 calls and 30 texts a day?

    Akinika debt recovery (formerly iQor) are FCA regulatated and follow the code of conduct in regards to harassment which state calls can be 3 times a day on one insidious number (so if they have a mobile and a landine on your file they can call a total of 6 times).
    I’m not saying you are exaggerating the facts here, maybe out of frustration I understand but it is slanderous to claim that a regulated company is breaching FCA Regulations.

It seems they had got the wrong name my surname wrong christian name so took me off their system! 5 minutes later I got a call from the same number a local number and they where asking about a road traffic accident? Somehow they are putting a local dialling code onto your phone so you pick up ????

    Spoke to a highly unpleasant man today from this company, apparently associated with TV licensing, (which he lied about, I am presuming because of other comments) this makes it even worse, I intend to complain to my MP and I would urge others on this site to do the same. MPs really can really change things , esp if they get lots of complaints. Goodness knows how a vulnerable person would cope with this harrassment and from effectively a government dept its a disgrace
