Dear all

 

A long time since I have posted on here and hopefully it is in the correct forum.

 

I have been receiving phone calls from PRA Uk who I believe are connected to Mackenzie Hall. I don't have any reason for a DDA to be contacting me and they are using my previous name before I got married and that was 13 years ago, I have an IVA back then but that settled and all done.

 

Somehow they have got my work number and I get numerous call per week, its annoying, I am aware of their tactics and I haven't given them any info, not even confirmed my name. Just said the person they want doesn't exist, technically they don't.

 

Reading on other threads there are template letters including CCA etc. However as i haven't got a clue what they want and I won't go through any security questions, what can I do, Keep ignoring them and tell them to go away and stop calling, it is a nuisance.

 

Any tips to deal with this would be greatful.

 

Thanks

I would also inform you that I am fully aware that any matter you may be alleging that I owe will now be statute barred and I will NOT make payment.

Formal complaints to themselves direct, the OFT & TS, calling you at work is a big no no!

 

How are they going to con you out of money if they make you unemployed?

Complain to OFCOM also, for misuse of the communications network!

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!

How do I quote a reference number when I don't have one and what details can I use for PRA to identify me without giving anything away unnecessary.

 

Cheers

Cheers Bazooka Boo, are there any templates for OFT and TS? I've heard that TS have already had quite a few compliments and have dealt with MH already

No no templates, just lodge one in your own words, it won't have any bearing on your particular situation, but they all get added to the pile.

Good point,

 

 

You can refer to the phone number they are using that they will easily be able to trace from the coms log.
