I got a phone call this morning which went something like this.
"Sorry to bother you but can I speak to xxxxx xxxxxxx"?
I said I was speaking.
"The caller then said I'd just like to confirm we can still contact you at (and stated my address)"?
Alarm bells went off at the back of my last remaining braincell and I asked who was calling.
We are 2F.
I asked from where.
I asked why she was calling me.
After some evasive tactics, she eventually said they had a client who had been trying to deliver correspondence to me.
I asked again who she worked for and why she was calling me and that I believed she was breaching DPA (and I meant by deceptive tactics).
I told her I was ending the call... there's really no point getting into a conversation with debt collectors on the phone for all the reasons stated in these threads.
When I google 2F Hull, it comes up with Westcott - who are also mentioned all over these threads.
So, is this a new tactic?
To call someone out of the blue without even trying to establish they're actually talking to the right person?
Just wondered if anyone else had calls like this from 2F Hull?
