Can I be charged in court for owing U Moblie RM148.45 and be made to pay for their lawyer fees on this. I have already closed my U Mobile account in May last year 2010 when my 2 years contract with them ended.

And in July 2010 I received a letter stating that I still own them RM75-55. After that I received a few calls stating that I own them RM148.45. I ask them to send me a statement or ask their account department to call me to explain the bill concern. Then they stop calling me again until last week I received another call, I think this time from their bill collector company. Again I asked to be given statement or their account department to call me. She insisted that I should go personally to their head office in Berjaya Times Square. I was very angry and told her that why should I go to them when they are the one who wants the money.

Yesterday I received a letter from CTI* Corporation Sdn Bhd sending a lawyer letter to Tetuan Axxx Hxxxxxx & Co. to start taking legal actions against me if within 10 days i did not make an appeal and they will charge me the lawyer fees also.

My questions is, is this possible? Do I have to pay for their lawyer fees if I lost?

I pernah terima calls dari "panel Telekom" and said I hutang Telekom. Kemudian saya abaikan notis mereka. Bila nak register new line... sangkut... sebab nama sudah blacklisted. Then dalam masa sama I nak buat loan, sangkut juga sebab bank cakap I still hutang line TM. Alasan bank, hutang kecil tak mampu bayar, inikan loan payment. So bila hutang, bayar jelas. Jangan sebab hutang kecil, kita sangkut loan.

I've been in same situation. Don't play with legal issue. TM gave me 14 days notice. On the 3rd day I propose them a letter saying "Sorry, bla... bla..." But I have to make a full payment. And its done.

Its not worthwhile to sue for such small amount. Only you be blacklisted by all telcos and you cannot register for a new number.

Just make the payment because some collection companies are taking this seriously. Of course if you really owe them just make the payment but if you are sure that you were never attached to any overdue payment than yes you can ignore it.

Just saying, it happened to one of my friends and if you don't pay it now, they will take legal actions and you will have difficulties applying for everything else. For example, if you were being blacklisted from a bank due to some credit card or loan, you cannot apply any other loan with any other banks in Malaysia because they can check through the system CTOS, and you will be having difficulties applying for a job especially with a financial institution such as banks.

I have been constantly called by this CTI* Corporation and today they said that if i don't pay RM 650.00  they are going to come and Arrest me.. the truth is I applied for an internet connection during my college days that was like 12 years back.. I did not receive an internet modem from Telekom but all of a sudden after 3 years I received a letter stating that I owe Telekom RM 650.00, I was studying abroad and my family informed me about the letter, so during my vacation I went to Telekom and explained about it and they said they will check into the matter.. after which I didn't bother to check back or they didn't call me now after almost 12 years this CTI* has started to harass me.. they called me today and said if I don't pay RM 650 they will come home and Arrest me... If I had used I'm obliged to pay, BUT I did not use I have no clue of what to do.. is it really that serious? Should I make a police complaint or approach the lawyer?.... My question is anybody can claim that we owe them like this and threaten us to pay ... does it make any sense, what stupid system is this??

Whoever they are, CTOS, CCRIS, CTIS they are just debt collector agents for GLC companies. Just ignore them, nothing to worried about.

BNM CCRIS is not a debt collection company.

CTOS is not a debt collection company.

Please do not post wrong information on legal issues.

I also have an issue regarding with CTI* Corp. I terminated unifi 4 years ago. For these few years, I didn't received any warning letter or notice to ask me pay for the money. In these few days, I had received call from CTI* Corp stating that I owe TM Point RM578.90. The issue is that I had cancel it before they come to install unifi. But they still charge me for that amount. I went to the TM Point and asked the customer service. They told me I owe only RM 550. I asked if I didn't make any payment, what risk will I take? They answered me that I would be blacklisted only. That's it. But now, I received private message from CTI* Corp that I must make the payment for RM 578.90. If not, I will be sued to court. Where the hell the letter from court? I didn't received any letter from court in my house. It quite annoying for them to keep insisting calling me.

CELCOM purposely did not send me the final bill when I terminated my line. Then a few months later, I get calls from debt collector. When I told them to send me the bill, they said already sent. They don't even know the details of the bill. I told them off over the phone. Then I emailed CELCOM customer service. After a few days checking, only then did they send me the last bill for the amount less than RM100.00. 

This is a scam done by CELCOM employees so that the debt collection company can earn money. BEWARE.
