Hi

I got a postcard through the post this morning, says ``WE HAVE VISITED YOU WHILE YOU WERE OUT``. None of us were out so thats a lie.

 

It goes on to say we will visit again between 9-5 ANYDAY. Talk about arrogance lol.

 

I find it quite disturbing that there is no confidentiality in the way they openly post information like this.

 

I have only a reference number, and a postmark from ``skelmersdale``

Any advice most welcome before i ring them up or make another move.

thank you.

As others here will tell you - don't call them... if I were you I would just file it under ignore - if it is that urgent they will write to you, and if they visit "again" then you can ask them to leave or you will call the police...

 

Just my opinion x

Hi Trigot,

 

I have had and continue to have these postcards put through the door. They are not allowed to visit you unless they have your express permission - there is a very good letter that you should send them recorded delivery regarding doorstep harrasment that you can find on here. I had this when some guy from MERCERS turned up outside the front door and just sat in his car trying to intimidate the wife and kids.

 

I wrote to them next day and they wrote to me passing the account back to the lender!!

 

Dont let them get you down and keep fighting!!!:D

You'll need to wait till they come out of the woodwork and write to tell you what they think they're chasing.

Under no circumstances should you ring them or contact them till they show their hand.

They do this to get you on the phone.

If that doesn't work they hope you'll write, which provides them with a name and address of someone who gives a s**t.

If you didn't have a debt with them before, you could then! ;)

Be patient, it could just be a random phishing trip.

If it's not they'll soon write with more details - then you make em prove it.

Shout if you need more help :)

If anyone else is put in this position then I am of the very strong opinion that the Police must be called, and tell them that someone is sat in a car outside watching your house and you have children inside. I guarantee, this practice will be frowned upon and these DCA's will be dissuaded from using it when their 'Doorstep collectors' keep getting arrested.


Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

Likely bunch these!

As for the postcard they sent in the post, send a copy of it to the OFT;The Office of Fair Trading: Contact us

 

And also a copy of it to the Credit Services Authority;

Welcome to the CSA

As they are in breach of the OFT debt collection Guidelines, and the CSA likes to believe that all of it's members are whiter than white.
