  1. Oh Joy lol At least the new phone is blocking all the unwanted calls and its easy to add the odd one that does get through.
  2. I sent a letter, factual and concise, and within days the calls ceased. No one since then. No apology but wasn't really expecting one anyway tbh. I have got the new landline phone active and its doing a good job of blocking everyone else. Check it every day, add a few numbers to the blocked list now and again. Amazing piece of kit! I'm going to let this drop now. The calls stopped, the phone works and life is peaceful once again Thanks for the advice and helps people
  3. Thank you so much. Amazing amount of help and information I drafted a letter but after reading the above it needs a little more work and needs to sound more formal. It's not a rant by any stretch of the imagination though but needs work. I have my kids with me all weekend so I doubt I'll get a chance now to do it properly before Monday (rather put my efforts into them) but as soon as it's done I will copy and paste it on here and ask if you chaps can help put right anything that may be wrong before I send it. I really do appreciate the help you've given me. I think
  4. Ok. Thank you to you and everyone else who has helped steer me through this. I feel a lot less stressed today knowing I'm dealing with it now instead of it just driving me insane.
  5. I have a crime incident number. Got that when I contacted the police in the first place. I am drafting a letter first. I have no intention of making any threats. I shall inform them I have complained to the TPS, Oftel and ICO and the police have been involved. I will however tell them that if the calls do not cease my next port of call will be the Financial Ombudsman and the FCA. I'll let them know the police officer took 2 of the calls and rang them back and was hung up on. I'm going to email it and send a copy registered in the post.
  6. Update so far... The police turned up at about 10 this morning. I was explaining what is happening and they rang He asked for the phone and answered the call only to get the usual silent line. He carried on talking to me and 6 minutes later they called again He again answered the call and got the usual silence. He called them back from his phone and amazingly they answered! He said I'm officer ****** from Essex Police and they immediately hung up on him. We have though, from them answering the call, ascertained the company is The One Stop Loan
  7. Thank you. Very interesting reading. Its all very well people saying "let it go" and "get a call barring phone" but they'll continue to do it to someone else. Someone has to stand up and be counted sometimes and this has annoyed me so much that this time its me. I appreciate I'm a small cog in a large wheel but if enough people stand up to them at some point it has to make a difference. I will continue making my call logs and will await the police. Subject to what they say will determine my next course of action but either way this is far from over!
  8. IMO the fact they are asking for George King is proof enough that I didn't allow my number to be given out or used. I am super careful about my number due to this happening to me a few years ago. Then I just changed my number but now it would be difficult because of my health and the people who have it or need it. Consultants, Occupational therapist, Hospital departments, Psych, friends and family etc. It would be just so much aggro. I do have faith in the meantime the BT8500 will make a massive difference when it turns up but I do intend to see this through to its conclus
  9. For the last 4 weeks I've been plagued by nuisance callers. They call asking for George King, who I have no idea who he is, or its silent. The silent ones are the worst. I get between 8 and 15 calls a day from 08719430417 who I believe are either One Stop Loan Shop or Little Loans between 9 am and 9 pm. In all the calls I've had there has only been someone on the other end once which was this morning and as soon as I started to explain I didn't want their calls he hung up. But that didn't stop the calls. I've had 8 more today already. I am registered with th
  10. The exercise was to get some debts dealt with and paid. None of the debts were in dispute, I/we signed credit agreements and was not/am not trying to wriggle out of my responsibility to pay back money I have borrowed in any way shape or form and legally owe. None of the DCA's acted unlawfully and were actually more helpful than the companies I owed money to in the first place. The reason I put this topic up was to show people that no matter how dire your situation (we went from earning £2400 a month to being on income support/incap benefit) if you talk to people and are not entirely unreas
  11. I should also add that offers for reduced lump sums have already come in for 2 of them. If I had a few hundred quid spare I could actually save myself a lot of money lol.
  12. There was no need to be honest with you. We were paying all the debts up until August last year when my wife was made redundant. They were for catalogues, Cards etc and none were in dispute at that point, all were legitamate and none were in arrears. When my wife was made redundant we tried dealing with the companies directly but none of them would help or accept reduced payments. At that point I dug in my heels and decided it would be easier to deal with DCA's so ignored the original companies and waited for DCA letters to roll in. I've dealt with DCA's in the past and find them ea
  13. Hi all, I just wanted to tell people I have recently dealt with the 3 companies named above for 5 differant debts for anything between £350 and about £1800. Its taken me 8 months of negotiating and letters back and forth but each of these debts has now been dealt with and I am paying them off at £5 each per month until further notice. Our financial situation is income support/incap benefit due to me having to have spinal surgery and my wife having MS. At all times I kept them informed of what I was doing next, my finances, my health, etc, I only wrote to them and most of all didn't let the
