Hello there I have recevied a letter today from westcott regarding a so called debt with british gas, for 400.00 for an old address I have lived at I do not remember owing any money at all to british gas

 

I have sent them the letter below is this right hope I have done the right thing is there anything else I can send to them.

 

please help

 

I DO NOT WISH TO RECEIVE ANY REPRESENTATIVE OF YOUR ORGANISATION, OR

INDEED AN AGENT OR REPRESENTATIVE EMPLOYED BY ANY ORGANISATION THAT YOU

ISSUE INSTRUCTIONS TO.

 

There is only an implied license under English Common Law for people to

be able to visit me on my property without express permission; the

postman and people asking for directions etc (Armstrong v Sheppard and

Short Ltd [1959] 2 Q.B. per Lord Evershed M.R.)

 

THEREFORE TAKE NOTE THAT I REVOKE LICENSE UNDER COMMON LAW FOR YOU, OR

YOUR REPRESENTATIVES TO VISIT ME AT MY PROPERTY AND IF YOU DO SO, THEN

YOU WILL BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES FOR A TORT OF TRESSPASS AND ACTION WILL

BE TAKEN, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO , POLICE ATTENDANCE.

 

 

I also caution you here that should you ignore my request on this

point, the actions of your representative(s) will happily be

recordedeither by CCTV or by telephone recording equipment – whichever

is applicable. Accordingly I reserve the right to use any evidence of

you or your representatives’ ignoring this request in connection with

any actions that I choose to pursue, including media exposure.

 

Should it be your intention to disregard my wishes, and break your

obligations, please be advised that the following rules also apply, as

laid down by the OFT in respect of debt collection, and that you, as a

holder of a consumer credit license, are obliged to follow:

 

The areas of the OFT guidance which applies to you in this instance are:

 

Debt collection visits

2.12 Examples of unfair practices are:

 

a. not making the purpose of any proposed visit clear, for example,

merely stating that collectors or field agents will call is not

sufficient

f. visiting or threatening to visit debtors without prior agreement

when the debt is deadlocked or disputed

 

Deceptive and/or unfair methods

2.8 Examples of unfair practices are as follows:

 

k. not ceasing collection activity whilst investigating a reasonably

queried or disputed debt.

 

 

I do believe this makes my position clear and unambiguous.

 

 

Yours Faithfully

 

 

You have contacted me regarding the account again with the above

reference number, which you claim is owed by myself.

 

I would point out that I have no knowledge of any such debt being owed

to British gas

 

I am are familiar with the Office of Fair Trading Debt Collection

Guidance which states that it unfair to send demands for payment to an

individual when it is uncertain that they are the debtor in question.

 

I would also point out that the OFT say under the Guidance that it is

unfair to pursue third parties for payment when they are not liable. In

not ceasing collection activity whilst investigating a reasonably

queried or disputed debt you are using deceptive/and or unfair methods.

 

Furthermore ignoring and/or disregarding claims that debts have been

settled or are disputed and continuing to make unjustified demands for

payment amounts to physical/psychological harassment.

 

I would ask that no further contact be made concerning the above

account unless you can provide evidence as to my/our liability for the

debt in question.

 

I await your written confirmation that this matter is now closed.

Otherwise I will have no option but to make a complaint to the trading

standards department and consider informing the OFT of your actions.

 

 

I look forward to your reply.

 

 

Yours faithfully

 

 

HOW LONG SHOULD I GIVE THEM NOW

Stop communicating with them, weather it be by email or phone.

They have no legal authority to money off you - only the county court does.

Just report them to the OFT & then forget they even exist.
