[Hi, can anyone tell me if sheriff officers (Scotland ) can retain your bank and work details after you pay off a debt ?.

Thanks

I cannot not see any reason they would have need to keep such records, also under the DPA I would imagine you can request they remove any personal details from their database if you can be certain they have retained them.

Sheriff officers are registered under the UK Data Protection Act 1998.

Thank you for that. I'm sure they do retain all debtors details if they can get away with it. Just one more question, Can a debt collection company call your place of employment to discuss outstanding debt. ? Thanks again

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, the whole DCA industry would collapse overnight.

As dx says NO they cannot call your place of employment but they do try it on...always log the date ad time of the call and ask the name of the caller, politely tell them you want that particular number removing from their database and warn them you will be logging all calls to support your complaint of harassment to the OFT and confirm that to them in a one line letter ....usually they will call you a few more times just to let you know they have 'the power' then the calls will stop.

Hi , phoned sheriff officers to ask them to remove my details from their database, and was told they need to keep my details on their system for 7 years for accounts reasons.
