Supplier taking unathorised DD's

Supplier taking unathorised DD's

Client has noted a supplier [ of their broadband] has taken 2 identical direct debits, within a couple of days - transacted six weeks ago and refuses to discuss or refund 

What is the current view on this [ nb the hassle of moving a broadband supplier is not worth the sum involved ] ?   and what compensation would you normally consider in such circumstances  ?

Given that it has been over a month since the last 'help yourself'  they clearly have a lack of internal controls.........,  but to stop the next DD will result in some invoice chaser [ rather than account handler ] suspending the vital service

Seeing this happening more frequently and the DD system and lack of contact other than email is so frustrating

Thoughts appreciated

The Direct Debit Guarantee?

Surely means that you can insist that your bank renfunds the spurious debit and takes it up with the supplier.

Get (or get your client to) grow some balls.

Recently RBS put through a lot of DD's twice. Are you sure it isn't a bank problem
