Hi all,

Just today one of the admin assistants where i work told me she'd received an automated message for me saying it was someone from CRS asking me to contact them, they gave a reference number and a contact number. This is embarrasing as i work as a community mental health nurse and its my place of employment, i also received the same message as a text to my work mobile phone. I do not want to contact them in case that is viewed as me acknowledging a debt.

I believe that the numbers were probably given by my ex partner many months (4years+) ago to a DCA.


Is there anyway that i can ensure that no more of these calls are made to my work numbers??

There is an easy way to stop them calling, and I am sure in the line of work you say you work in you are already familiar with it: Protection from Harassment Act and misuse of the Telcommunications Act. I believe there are a few letters in the template section of this forum relating to calls at work from DCAs/creditors.

Thanks for the replies, will check out the info.

The CRS website as a section about the 'new' technology they use and also what looks like a testimonial from the company that develops the technology. I suppose they could say they did not know it was a work number.


Again thanks for the response, will keep you all posted on outcome.

Just received another text with:


Our reason to attend your premises could be avoided by contacting our office urgently on 08445590104



Not sure if 0844 counts as a premium number according to OFT guidance.


Also could i send the letter template without including my own address?
