- Was this illegal? (Carphone Warehouse content)
In the queue today at the Centre of Doom that is the Carphone Warehouse, waiting behind someone trying to take out a new phone contract at £61(!) a month for an iPhone 6-something.
CW Drone: “Sorry, you’ve failed the credit check.”
Customer: “Oh. Is there anything you can do?”
CW Drone: “Well, is there anyone else living at the same address whose details we can use for the check?”
Customer: “Oh, yes, my brother [reads off personal details including date of birth]”
CW Drone: “Excellent, that seems to have gone through. Here’s your phone.”

I was a manager at cpw. Definitely fraud. are you sure it went like that, or did they just have to use a different address? Setting up a contract in another persons name without them there, definite fraud. You should speak to the branch manager as I’m sure they’d want to know about it.Posted 4 years agoandylMember
Sounds like ether fraud or his Brother is now guarantor for his contract. Does sound shonky, he’s probably use the trick to go out and take out some credit cards and a new phone now and before he knows it brother is in trouble.
£61 a month for a bloody phone. He probably gets 100 minutes a month and 250mb data for that too. Humans really are morons sometimes.Posted 4 years ago
£61/month will get you an iphone6 128Gb
It’s a £700 phone, so Half of the contract cost pretty much covers the phone cost.
So you would actually be paying £30 ish per month for unlimited calls and texts, and 10Gb mobile data.Posted 4 years agokayla1Member

“Can Ashley, Jerwayne and Janine teach new boy Christopher how to ensure that every mug punter within five square miles gets locked down to the most expensive mobile phone contract known to mankind?”
£61 per month? For a phone? 😆
My phone cost a tenner and the battery lasts ages. If I need to use a computer while I’m out and about I either make sure I’ve used one before I go out or wait until I get home.Posted 4 years ago

You are a mug for having different requirements than him and spending more than he does on a bike.
