I am a Coles...

I am a Coles MasterCard customer. I received an email on 5 March saying I will need to register before using the Online Service Centre. Step 2 asks me to register Credit Card Number & CVV number and "Your ATM PIN' I have refused to give a PIN Number to a 3rd Party on a previous occasion. PIN Numbers are confidential and I object to this request. What is your advice,please

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And when did the issue begin?

I live in Canberra. I understand that Coles Financial Services have been taken over by Citigroup P/L Citibank*****Sydney NSW 2000.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

This is a new initiative by "The Coles MasterCard Team' quote.

No

What you need to do is to write a formal complaint to the company. This complaint needs to be in a chronological order detailing what is the issue and what action you have taken to try and rectify the matter.

The complaint needs to be in a chronological order with numbered points 1, 2, 3, etc.

The complaint needs to have detailed what you need fixed and for a time limit of a minimum of 14 days to apply.

The complaint then needs to be sent to the dispute resolutions department. Make sure you keep a copy for yourself. Preferrably send the complaint by email.

If you do not receive a reply within 14 days issue a follow up complaint to the first complaint issued.

If no response is received then it is time to commence an action in the local tribunal.

Would you like to try this option first ?

My query is about renewal of an employer membership online
My query is about renewal of an employer membership online subscription to Fair Work Australia. We did not wish to renew our subscription Membership this year. We missed the emailed membership renewal invoices as they were unfortunately marked as spam. The membership expired at 20th March. I requested to terminate after that date via email. A second overdue invoice was sent with a 10% late payment fee for additional late payment and legal action if the membership was not paid. I replied again that our membership be terminated which was again rejected. This resulted in a heated phone call from me as to what I thought of their business methods - civil language used however. Are we liable to pay this membership. I have only used the service once at joining to use templates - and not logged in since except today to officially request cancellation of the service via their page. The invoice amount for 12 months is $479 -Below are their Terms of UseThe individual and the business / company entity that register for Membership are both jointly and severally liable under these terms, and Membership is not transferable without the express written consent of Fair Work Centre.A member's annual Membership year commences immediately upon registration, this date becoming known as the Member's 'anniversary date', and the Member's membership will become renewable 12 months later.Members may access their online Member Account 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, subject to the system being temporarily unavailable due to circumstances beyond Fair Work Centre's control, and / or due to scheduled maintenance, where upon Members will be provided with advance notice of such maintenance.One (1) advice is deemed to be the equivalent of a phone and / or online advice consultation of up to fifteen (15) minutes in duration, unused advice credits in each Membership year do not accrue from year to year if unused in a previous Membership year, and any advice provided to a Member is based on information relating to that Member's business that was provided to Fair Work Centre by the Member either upon first registering or when the advice request was made, unless express and clear instructions are provided to Fair Work Centre.The advice entitlements of Professional Package Members are subject to a Fair Use of our services.Any advice and / or other service provided to Members does not constitute legal advice, and our services are not tantamount to engaging in legal practice as defined under applicable state and federal laws.Members will not be entitled to representation by Fair Work Centre as part of their Membership in the first two (2) months' of their Membership year, or in the first two (2) months' immediately after Membership has been reactivated following suspension for non-payment of Membership fees.Representation is subject to the inclusions contained within the relevant Membership package (additional fees may apply to some Members), and in relation to Professional Package Members, such is limited to one (1) conciliation by telephone in each twelve (12) month period, and additional fees will apply in relation to representation for second and subsequent coniliations in that same twelve (12) month period.Where Fair Work Centre represents any Member in relation to an unfair dismissal, such representation is limited to telephone conferences with the Commission, and if Fair Work Centre elects to continue such representation and appear in person, such representation in person will attract additional fees.All templates and documents available on our website are in standard form, and may not suit a Member's individual business needs.Independent legal advice should be obtained before using any template or document obtained from our website, or relying on any of the information contained on our website.Fair Work Centre assumes no responsibility for the accuracy of any information or docume … read more
