    "Poor Service"

    You are expected to call an expensive 0845 number, they won't call you back. Won't let you set up a Direct Debit either and harrass you, even when you have a set up with Payplan. People in debt can't afford to hang on the phone while you are being charged high rates.

    "poor service"

    they now use (jan2013) a indian call centre who neither speak or understand english. Additionally their phone contact is an 0845 number which will cost you money and make money for them !!!

    "Dreadful Call Centre Service - Does anyone have a UK number for them?"

    Today I received a letter from B,O&S staing they had received no payment - but they had! i have rung them four times today, the first two times, the first call the line was cut off, the second time they discussed the issue but still insisted no money had transferred into their account. My debt management company tried to ring them and they said the security information they had for me was incorrect. I then rang them again, they then informed me my date of birth was incorrect and put the phone down on me. I then rang a fourth time, by this time I am very cross. I spoke to a pleasant person who informed me that my date of birth was incorrect. So from the first conversation to the fourth conversation the data had been changed. Eventually they listened, I now have a new birthday, so I will be celebrating my birthday on a different day this year! There are no UK numbers, you can only ring India, it has taken me three hours to sort it out and still they will not change my date of birth to the correct one.

    "Helpline"

    BOS used to have a UK telephone number, which was very easy and people understood what you were saying, they have now transferred it to India and they do not understand anything that you say. I was on the phone for a good half and hour without doing what I wanted to do, which was an easy change of address

    "bad credit report"

    I have asked them to remove my name from the experian bad credit file list, but will they, as I have entered into a payment plan with them?

    "Quite Good"

    After a dodgy start, them wanting to, but failing, increase my payments, they accepted this. The only complaint now is that, unlike other Companies, they do not send monthly Statements.

    "Firm but fair"

    I got into debt with Blair Oliver And Scott after failing to pay my Halifax credit card. They sent me letters at least once a week, sometimes more. However after Debt Line sent them my very first token payment of just £1, I got a letter saying they were prepared to accept the reduced payments. It took a huge load off my mind as they had been threatening court action in their previous letters to me!
