What do they need to investigate? That someone might owe some money? Load of cobblers, I'd give them a ring and ask if the investigation moron wants milk and sugar....bloody children.

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!

Links to letters you need to send a CCA request - this will probably shut them up

 

CCA Request

CCA letter to send with a £1 postal order by recorded delivery, do not sign. They have 12 plus 2 working days to reply. If nothing valid is received you can send a letter to put the account in dispute (this is below) and this should stop them contacting you.

CD I'm inclined to ignore them at the moment, check your CRF first CAT see what if anything is on their first, a prove it letter, might be more apt at this point rather than a CCA request, especially if it is near to being SB.

It's ONLY money CAT, it isn't life or death, they won't put you in hospital, UNLESS you allow the little children to get to you. So don't!

i had a disputed debt with a Catalogue,there has been no contact for just over 6 years.

we started to receive letters from Lowell & all the companies linked with them, all of the letters went into the bin, as i have heard many of the dirty tricks they get up to & have googled them.

we started to get the phone calls from all of their companies,cant remember all of the names,but i always ask them for the company name then say i may or may not call them back, i refuse to confirm any details that could be used to identify me, i then come on here or google the company name,....if its given.

28/01/11 i had a phone call they would only say "its a personal matter"despite asking for the company name,which was refused by the caller no company name was given, so i hung up.

 

within 10 minutes,the phone rang again,guess what, it was the same voice as the first phone call 10 minutes earlier.this time claiming to to represent Severn Trent Water,although the caller would not give his companies name.

i told him i am not legally obliged to give out any information which may identify me & i deal direct with all of the utility companies servicing this property.

 

i know this is a long winded post,but thought people on here should know about ,what i believe is a new tactic by this company & their associated companies.

If the default date is June 2005, then the last payment could actually have been months before this so will certainly be Stat Barred by then.

 

Do you have any records yourself - bank statements or anything, to show when the last payment was made?

Just send them the doorstep collection letter by recorded delivery.

 

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/content.php?410-LETTER-USED-WHEN-A-DCA-THREATENS-A-DOORSTEP-VISIT

 

If they continue to hassle you, then report them to Trading Standards. What they are doing can be considered harassment.

 

Don't worry about any doorstep collection. They probably won't turn up anyway and they certainly should not following you sending the letter. These doorstep collectors don't have any powers and they are just there to intimidate you. Most are self employed people, that won't go out of their way to make visits and if you are not in, they will just put a postcard through the door asking you to call. Some DCA's are a bit sneeky, as they send a postcard in the post asking you to call a mobile number, making it look like a doorstep collector has come to visit you. But if you look carefully, it will have a postage marker in the top righthand quarter.

 

Don't let yourself get worried by any of this. Looks like the debt will become statute barred very shortly.

We could do with some help from you.

It is no stress, any uneducated fool turning up on your doorstep demanding money can be told to shove off, they do not have any legal right let alone training to be on anyone's property committing a tort of trespass.

Flogging a dead horse, possibly. Don't under estimate
