Customer Question
hello I want to ask...
hello I want to ask my company for all the information they have on me as I have been having severe problems with line management wanting me to sign for things that I do not agree occured. Is there any reason why they would not comply with the data protection act and give me the information they have on file about me so that I can challenge it?

I wonder if you can help me. I have a default recorded
I wonder if you can help me. I have a default recorded against me for a credit card. The credit card company sent an invalid S.87 notice.
