My elderly dad just fell victim to these crooks.

He foolishly allowed their pressure sales guy into his house about a year ago and signed up with them. Since then he's had nothing but trouble with his internet connection and he never got his email working at all, despite repeated calls to them to try to sort it out, so he finally gave up and decided to go back to BT.

He just received a bill for more than 750 pounds from Unicom for 'breaking the three year contract' that he didn't even know he'd signed up to - which, to my dismay, he's paid. As a pensioner this is a huge financial burden and extremely upsetting to him.

I just got off the phone with him and I'm furious.

Avoid at all costs.

Update: OK, after some googling I now see that they were investigated by Ofcom for this kind of thing in 2015 and fined:

Title: Stay Away
After a cold sales call where we didn't agree to their services, Unicom sent us through a 'verbally agreed' 3 year contract.

Its taken ALOT of time and stress to get out of.

I strongly advise anyone to stay away from this company. Absolute cowboys.

Shark like direct sales tactics. Salesman will hook you into a 3 year rolling contract with ridiculous cancellation fees. Ignore them despite their relentless persistence!
