Question posted in the General Law category relating to Gauteng

I am subscribed to a Telkom line on a month-to-month basis. No contract or credit agreement was entered into. My account is currently in arrears and I have received an SMS from DC Fourie Attorneys advising me that a summons is being issued and that I will be blacklisted. In Feb. 2016 I cancelled the service and settled the account up to that point. Since then Telkom has not cancelled my service and they have kept on billing me for the service which I cancelled and therefore did not need.

Considering that I have not entered into a credit agreement, is this legal?
