‘DESPICABLE’ Virgin slammed for calling in debt collectors on dementia dad, 88, over £38 mobile bill


VIRGIN Mobile has been branded “despicable” after an 88-year-old father with dementia was sent letters from debt collectors over an unpaid bill of £38.

The family of Kenneth Harkins said they attempted to cancel the pensioner’s £10-a-month contract when his condition worsened but were unable to as he could no longer remember his password.
