Have eircom phonewatch in the gaff paying 40 quid a month for it. Just rang them up there to see what I’m getting for that and she says monitoring and maintenance, Well there has never been a need for maintenance in 3 years and the fact that I very rarely set the fookin thing means there is not a whole lot of monitoring being done either. So I ask how can I cancel it. ‘One sec while I look at your contract’ grand I thought, I’m here 3 years and dont remember renewing it. So she comes back and says I’m in contract until December and am liable for the rest of the year if I break that. When did I sign a contract for another year?
Apparently, and this is the reason for the post, they sent me out an invoice in December for the normal monthly amount, which I obviously read and threw it out. She says, if you had of turned it over under the terms and conditions, you have 30 days from the date of this invoice to cancel the contract, if you do not, once payment is received, we will take this as your agreement for another 12 month contract. Have never heard of this before, anyone else?
