Hi Guys,

 

I had a call like this yesterday to my mobile, giving me until 8pm last night to phone them back.

 

Asking for me by my first name, gave a reference number and a telephone number to call back on. The caller also left her first name.

 

No reference on any of the google spam filters for this number, so wondering if anybody else has had a call like this recently and if so have they gotten to the bottom of who it was?

 

Obviously no company name and no reason for the call.....

 

Hubby told me its a load of rubbish, but weve been dealing with mums hassle for the last month and havent had the chance to deal with our own, short of making the token payments.

 

What do you think? Here is the number 0844 325 3047.

 

Thanks,

Looks like they are based out of Edinburgh, Does Scottish Law not differ from English Law in terms of debt collection?

Once again, it's a company calling themselves DM limited, but wouldn't tell me if they were trying to sell me anything or buy anything, bceause he wasn't able to disclose this information under the data protection act!!!!!!!

When I asked him to quote which part of the data protection act was stopping him from disclosing these details, he couldn't and simply reverted to 'it's for security purposes sir, if I can just take your name'

For who's security?

For yours sir and for mine?????

So told him I doubt he could even spell security, as he was just a telephone jockey and hung up.

 

I imagine by the attitude and response of this telephone jockey, they're not a very well educated DCA..:-x

Even if they did they would only be able to ping an ISP address & to find out who it was registered to at that particular period of time they would need a court order.

Cheeky beggars with a tracing cookie!

 

I love how we know have 3 guests on this thread - makes you wonder what these people get paid to do.

 

Anyone want to take up the offer of my customer reference?

I use software on my website which lists the ISP addresses of every visitor and it tells me which country & city they are in and which pages they have viewed and what they have downloaded. I only use it as a 'yardstick' to determine the content of the site which is most used. I can't imagine DCA monitoring the hits they receive let alone trying to trace them, besides all visitors are anonymous other than their ISP address.

Debt Managers are actually one of these firms that help you pay your debts, they charge £25 or so per £100 you pay in. They don't help you other than say 'if you get a letter send it to us and we will deal with it'...

Try a program called Hotspot shield for anonymous browsing. It gives your IP address as somewhere in America.

I only use it to access Pandora radio which is now barred for UK listeners, but it would also baffle any DCA's
