Please post here if you have sent off an official telephone harassment letter template, it has been respected and you are no longer being telephoned. Please state what organisation you sent the letter off to. Thanks.

 

If the opposite is true and they are still ringing please post on this thread:

If you are being harassed, but haven't yet sent off a letter, then please do. More responses are definitely needed. I want to let this thread fester for a couple of months and then see what's what. I have a couple of good ideas on what to do next.

 

The telephone harassment letter can be found here:

Yes, I have. Lowell have not telephoned me since receiving mine in October. I have a thread somewhere about it. They aren't backing off in any other way and have the threatomatic aimed permanently at my address, but they've not phoned... yet. Is ths tempting fate?

AIC stopped calling when I told them to & sent the letter. They are totally useless in all other respects.

 

Intrum Justicia said that they would keep on calling. I called a manager and gave a different (virtual) number that doesn't ring, just logs. Nice people:rolleyes:

Totally dif from the above poster, i did manage to get Intrum to stop calling this is the e'mail i recieved from them.

 

have removed your telephone number from our records and you should not receive any further telephone calls from our company.

Can you please advise me with regards to any dispute you may have or your proposals of payment

To be fair this woman was very helpful (even against my better judgment i called and spoke to her, she was really appologetic and assured me she would sort my case out, less than a week later i had a letter confirming that the account bal was nil and that they should never have been handed the case.

With Intrum Justicia, I just phoned, I didn't send a letter. It was about my son so I gave them a different number, not his, so that they could leave a message. The supervisor did offer to take the number off but I thought it was best to get the messages so we could tell him when he hadn't paid! Unfortunately they did ring the number but never left any messages so my son never paid ....

Lowells took me off their telephone list when I contacted them in writing despite refusing to do so in the times I used to actually speak to them. In saying that the threatomatic has been working overtime since.

CapQuest stopped calling me after I sent the letter template. They started a complaints procedure when I wrote to them and concluded that they would remove my number from my records 'as a gesture of goodwill'.

 

It worked anyway, they don't ring anymore :)

Monument stopped calling after the first hurdle.

 

They passed the account over to Clowns (Llowels), who after me tormenting (sorry ringing them), during the security questions, asked for our phone number, i stupidly started to tell them, got as far as the last 4 digits, and said, sorry im not prepared to give you the phone number.

 

Got a reply, of, well we already have it on the system...

 

Waiting for them to contact us by phone though.. so wait and see...

I have sent 2 harrassment letters off to HSBC, we are deadlocked, they want me to pay back loan + overdraft, I will not pay anything back unless they refund my charges £1,500+ !!! They are still calling me up to 6 times per day too....

 

This is my record which shows what a shoddy outfit they are !!! previous to this list here they were calling me up to 10 times a day (these are just the calls below I know about)....I am currently filing a complaint to the FOS...

 

This is right up against the OFT and Trading Standards guidelines (let alone being a CRIMINAL offence) !!! which clearly state that once a debt is in dispute they aren't allowed to continue to press me !!

In my last letter they said 'despite the OFT you are obliged to continue making payments', they are also saying that they won't refund the charges which were 'applied in accordance with the new terms and conditions which have been applied to various accounts on the 1st December 2006 (UTTER BOWLARKS - they did pay me back some in 2007 !!!!!)

 

And get this CAGGERS !!! - 'OFCOM regulations state that we can contact our customers at any time between the hours of 8:00am and 9:00pm - Monday to Saturday and 8:00am until 5:00pm on Sundays and Bank Holidays - I sincerely apologise if any inconvenience has been caused to you as a result of the time of these calls however, they are being made in accordance with procedure (yes their own procedures or whichever governing body they feel fits their own shoddy requirements !!!) so it seems they don't care about the OFT or Trading Standards only OFCOM !!!

 

It gets better...'Due to the inconvenience caused I have removed your telephone numbers from the contact details that we have on our system. This action will prevent telephone calls from being made in the future. Please be advised that we will contact you via post if necessary' This letter is dated almost a month ago !!!! since this letter they have contacted me at least 50 times !!!!

Nah, should report it to the police, with a copy of the protection from harassment act in one hand and s40 of the Administration of Justice act 1970 in the other. If they refuse, ask for the name and number of the officer, and when he asks why say so that you can complain to the chief constable;)
