    • Hello, yesterday Barclays Bank put my account under review suddenly just i received a message about that to wait 7 days . I ve been to local branch and they didn't tell me any information saying to me to wait 14 days . The problem is I think they will take longer than they said and I can't wait so much cause I need the money for my own company and to live life daily. This situation its caused me a sever anxiety, I dont know what to do . I can prove that I m a self employed . Can somebody tell me what should I do ?  Some contact numbers or email addresses where can I text about this problem? I m new on this platform and I dont know how to manage this . Thank you
    • Hello yesterday Barclays Bank blocked my account with a substantial amount and I didnt get any reason for this issue why they put my account under review. I m a self employed and all the money blocked are very important to me to open my own company .. Can I get some information about what should I do in this case.  I ve been to the local branch but they didn't give me any information just to wait 14 days and I can t do that .
    • harveys are not the creditor, so them stating you should continue to make payments and you will not receive your payments back is immaterial.   the administrators of harveys are not your target. creation finance are.     these issues should be directed toward creation under p'haps a section 75 claim ....as they are the creditor ...they are equally responsible for the actions or inactions of either harveys or bensons.   we can appreciate you have had the usual run around, we are not indicating you have lied, merely pointing to the fact that you innocently believed what you have been told to date.   go get your moneyback and get the finance agreement cancelled.   dx 
    • you've not moved so until or unless you get a letter of claim via royal mail you ignore them.   as for anything on your credit file it should fall off after 6yrs.   dx    
    • 1st. it is not illegal for you, as the home owner, to open letters addressed to 'others' not resident at your address.   2nd because you did or did not employ the above, ultimately, this has led to a court judgement being handed down. the bailiff company have employed, quite rightly,  the methods that are legally available to them to trace the defendant.   rightly or wrongly they have traced you.   you need to write to the bailiff company concerned briefly explaining the above stating you are not the said person. you also need to write to the judgement court the same. you also need to write to the relevant rail toc    never use the phone.   dx

Hi,

 

These people keep leaving messages on my phone for me to call them back regarding a ticket i got from Central Ticketing a good while back. I have been ignoring all letters like i was told on this forum. Will they ever stop calling, should i phone them back? I presume this wont get taken futher... ie me going to court will it?

 

Thanks

maybe this is getting into harrasment territory?

 

I did read a good paragraph to say if they phone again regarding who they are and who they wish to speak to, not being you etc. If someone can post it i think it's good to say.

This is the web page for BT customers on how to deal with malicious calls:

 

How can I stop or prevent malicious calls? | Help | BT.com

 

Choose to refuse is here - costs £11.25 a quarter (ex. vat)

 

The other thing to use is Caller ID. A lot of new phones now have this function built in. BT used to offer a battery powered LCD display that showed the incoming number (you may be able to find on e-bay). The service is usually free providing you make outgoing calls.

 

One thing to try is ask them who they want to speak to, say I'll just get them for you, and then go back to what you were doing leaving the phone off the hook. It does tie up your phone line, but they will get the message eventually, and all the while they'll be racking up call charges. :-D

It must be their day for phone call harassment. Same happened this morning on my phone.

 

That is at least twice now their number has come up but the first they have left a message. Maybe I should switch answerphone off!

Say hold on a second, place phone on work top and get everyone in the room to blow raspberries on their arms whilst giggling!

 

That what I do to surveys! Wife asked if they were still on the line but I didnt look, just left them listening to what ever program was on telly!

Hello,

 

Ive have an ongoing parking fine problem with these guys for over a year now. It originated from Cental Ticketing issuing me with a £60 fine which i have ignored following advice on these forums. I am getting phone calls weekly now from White Solicitors, any advice on how i can get them to stop? Something i can say to them over the phone? The letters have stopped just not the phone calls.

 

Thanks for any advice.

Start wasting there time by asking them to hold and walk away from the phone. Leave them hanging. They will get the message eventually.

 

The invoice is still unenforcable.

 

Alternatively you could send the 'telephone harasment' letter but the trouble with that is they may well think you care and start the letters again.

 

Personally I would unlease time wasting on them. It has worked for many companies from my point of view. No one calls me anymore :-(

But remember that by sending a letter may start the letters again. Your choice mate.

A friend of mine go so fed up with Barclaycard harrassing him, that he found their source number and redirected Barclaycard's calls back that number.

 

I know the story to be true because when I phoned him, a message from Barclaycard asked for my account details.

When they call start with "Please hold on while I start the recording equipment" . . short pause . . " Recording of this call for personal record use is now taking place place. Who is calling ?". Odds are you will just get a click before you get to the end of this. If they carry on just ask them questions and give them no information whatsoever. Or do the "Please hold" and walk away from the phone. Simples.

Answer the call and start to waste there time. Time is money and they wont want to waste it. If you keep on ignoring they will just keep trying. You need to send them a message.

 

Do not be afraid of them, nothing will come of it. They are just monkeys on the end of a line.
