    Was the card posted by hand or the old 'second class' rubbish?

    Power2Contact are a tracing agency, no doubt on a fishing expedition on behalf of a DCAicon. File anything they send under 'ignore'.

    I have wasted alot of tea and cake waiting for these type of "people" to arrive.
    It is highly unlikely that anyone will turn up.
    If they do simply tell them to leave and communicate in writing ONLY.

    As and when the attached DCAicon writes to you update us and we'll help.

    Be VERY careful whose advice you listen too

    I got a letter from them which was utter cock and they reckon they will charge 22.66 for it. Obviously, letter straight back to them telling them basically the second word is off and to halifaxicon who instructed them to also tell them the second word is off ...... just another episode in the mind games, which I am winning !!! yay !!!

    When you write back to a letter which states they are charging you enclose a bill for secretarial/legal services and ask them for immediate payment.... should raise a few eyebrows their end. After all you too have overheads and costs involved.....

    Power2contact are part of the Crucible Group - also includes Credit Solutions (in my view the biggest bunch of a***holes in the DCAicon industry - and of course they've got some serious competition ). Their motto is 'building stronger customer relations' - ha, ha, ha....

    Certainly I'd ignore them, hedgehog.

    I had a card fro them and i sent in a official complaint to them and the company that hired them as the card was free for anyone to read had my reference number on and was in breach of OFT rules.

    Got a snotty letter back 8 weeks later and the DCAicon didn't know why they were contacted, think they are under the same roof as CSL.

    I recieved one of these little yellow cards with an appointment with a Mr J White (how original)

    power 2 Contact are indeed under the same roof as CSL and are probably a subsiduary of the same company.

    They rang my wife yesterday and she compained that no one had turned up for the appointment their rep said we were lucky as it was the baliffs that were coming round. Odd that considering the debt has never reached court, they must think we were all born yesterday.

    I don't think the card contravenes the Data Protection Act but I have enquired with the Information Commissioners Office just in case. I have also reported their behaviour the the OFT although I doubt any action will be taken.

    I have sent them a snotty letter regarding their actions and will wait now to hear back from them. They breached their own guidelines set out on their website too Credit Solutions

    you could do with recording the telephone callsicon when they are threaterning you with the baliffs. Would make a good claim for harasment.

    Not sure I would have the equipment nor the knowledge how to record a telephone conversation, besides which isn't it illegal to do that without their permission?

    When they answer they tell you they are recording the conversation for training purposes - tell them in return you are recording the conversation - it ISNT illegal to do that provided you state it at the beginning and not halfway through.

    I have received a little yellow card today (Thursday) saying they will call on Wednesday, it doesn't say which Wednesday and it doesn't say whether it will be by phone or in person. Has anyone ever received a visit from these people?

    No its just a fright tactic. Ignore it and write to them and tell them you will only deal by written correspondance.
