Third case

Ketan Aggarwal V EE

Also not in the papers and was a more challenging but rewarding one.

I was turned down for various credit applications and found out that it was because EE left negative information on credit report out of negligence. Someone was meant to apply a £36 credit to my account but couldn’t be bothered to and so ruined my credit file. I complained to EE and was told i’d get a manager callback but no one did so guess what? Yep…. Legal proceedings 😀

I argued in court that under the data protection act section 13.2, EE as a data controller acted negligently and it meant I couldn’t get credit as result. EE didn’t dispute that they had acted negligently but said the amount that should be awarded should have been negligible. The judge awarded me £1000 in compensation plus legal expenses coming to a total of £1628.28 –


Correct me if i’m wrong but i think i’m getting good at law now :p
