    Default SABC TV License mess up

    Well I got this sms today from sabc tv licence

    YOUR TVLICENSE, ACC.NO.403###### (won't display number here) is due by 30/06/2008. Balance Owning etc (the usual sabc tv licence crap)

    So I went to the tvlic.co.za website registered with the above number.
    Logged in and hey guess what it is not me ???(which I knew because I went through a whole process with sabc and their ****ty tv licence process due to being married about 7 years ago and they finally merged my wifes and my account).
    Then I went to change details. My phone number is not even in the details of this person. So how the hell did i get this message and why is it so easy to register with this account nr on tvlic.co.za

    It is obvious their system are in a #####$$ mess

    Go there in person (Auckland Park)
    Trust me on this - in the long run it will be be cheaper than the 100 phone calls and faxes/e-mails

    I think their registration process should be a more secure. It should at least be the account nr & id. not just the account nr. I can now see the guys details, phonenumber, contact address etc.

    Go to the post office. Get yourself a new licence. Let the old one go dead and let the SABC sort it out. You only have to have a licence, I don't think it says anything about having to renew your existing one.

    Get a new lisence.

    Should you get any letters regarding the old one, send a certified copy of your new lisence by certified mail and attach a letter that this is final notice and proof that you are up to date. Keep the mail slip!

    If anybody else starts to pester you, inform them kindly that you have done your part, and you consider their attempts as blackmail. If they continue, lay a criminal charge at the police, and if an attorney is involved, also inform the law society of what you have done.

    Been there. It is the only way to negotiate with the SABC and their legal eagles.

    Trust me, 'old licenses' don't die. They will nail you 10 years down the line saying you owe them thousands, and then it's a huge legal battle to sort out.

    I don't think you can get a 'new' licence - they link to your old history, based on your ID number I think, and then just renew your old licence.

    At least that's what I happened to me - I had a licence, cancelled it when I went overseas, and when I came back and applied for a new licence it was the same account number as my old licence.

    Once in a while we get a Final Notice from the Attorneys the sabc use for an outstanding amount of 5-6k. This is for a company that was liquidated 6 or 7 years ago, which at the time we instructed them to cancel all licences.

    Goes to show how good they are at admin work he he.
