So PRA went one step further and rang my employment, lucky no one was here and it was just me.

So i played dumb and said, please remove the number, the person you are after isnt here.

 

Anyway i played smart with them and did a data harvesting exercise. I spoke to them on the phone and dug out some info.

They are chasing a Wonga account which was created in November 2010 and that defaulted soon after... But the interesting thing is...

Yet again another account which has fallen foul of the Fraud that was committed in 2011 & 2012... It predates all the other accounts.

 

I managed to find out it was paid into a bank account that was set up fraudulently which the letter i no longer have.

They have done the whole "You must do this and that to prove otherwise". I put swift end to the call by saying simply... I have to do nothing for your demands...

Why do they get away with this stuff. I didn't update any details with them. Just steer clear....

Funny That... I gave a random address that ive never lived at and also an incorrect DOB... Yet they still proceeded on the call and gave me info about the account when i returned their call... Withholding my number of course.
