Hi All,

 

First time posting on here, have lurked for sometime though!

 

I have returned from a week off work to find Mackenzie Hall have somehow obtained my work number and have been calling up to 4 times a day.

 

I spoke to them yesterday morning on my return to work and told them to remove this number, to which they agreed and apologised.

 

On returning to work this morning

I had 4 voicemails left from them between 5pm and 7pm last night.

 

This morning they called again at 8.30,

 

I was firm and explained they are not to contact me on this number

and they lady said no notes were made and the number wasn't removed but will do so now.

 

It is now 10am and I have received another 3 voicemails!

 

I sit opposite my director at work and this is really upsetting me, I'm scared to pick up my phone.

 

Is it legal for them to obtain my work number and continue to call, even though I have specifically told them not to and to remove the number, which they said they did.

 

(btw, I admit I owe this small debt and agreed to pay it complete on Friday,

and they said no further action would be taken until then,

this was yesterday morning before 8 more phonecalls)

 

Any advice greatly appreciated.

I would not agree to pay MHall any money at all until they have provided full written documentary proof the debt exists AND they have the right to collect it.

 

They have been phoning you up at work knowing full well its against guidelines in order to pressure you into paying up.

 

Well they've been rumbled by you in time.

 

Don't talk to them on the phone but write to the cretins demanding the proof,

demanding they remove your work phone from their bits of fag packet records,

demanding they back up their apology in writing and demand they make up for that in monetary terms.

 

Tell them, in no uncertain terms, that complaints are being filed with all the relevant authorities.

Definitely make a formal complaint to them and the necessary organisations. This seems to be a regular trick of theirs from what I can gather.

 

If the debt is from a payday loan you usually have to supply your employment details inc work number and they take this as permission to use it to embarrass you via work.

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!
