We know that DCA's use electoral rolls and other info on public domain

So can I by the same token post details of DCA director's

Such as name, address, dob, FB profile all of which are freely available on the net?

If a DCA posts up your personal details on the web to pressure you in to paying, I think it would be equitable to return the compliment.

 

In the meantime, they do not. You posting such details up on them without such a reason would be vindictive, immature and not get you anywhere with your problems.

 

Keep it in the private domain, but by all means use the public sources to get to the right people for complaints etc.

I see no issue with that, as long as the information is freely available by searching (the correct areas) of the internet & that you provide a link.

 

You must make sure that the information is up to date.

 

You have also forgot to add in a StreetView piccy of their house/apartment :wink:

NEVER telephone a DCA

If a DCA rings you, refuse to go through the security questions & hang up!

I think its only fair, that if they have free access to my details, then I should be able to access their details

If they write to me at my home address, it's only fair to let them know that I have theirs

Yes the info is all there, and from the 'correct sources' along with the option of contacting them by private email if I so wish

 

This is just a game, one that they have already lost ;)

 

Ermm, streetview !! Some people do live a grand lifestyle based on the misery of others ;)

Yes that is a bit of a grey area, but nothing stopping me from writing to them, or sending them a birthday/xmas card ;)

You may well be going down the road of vexatious actions /harassment should you send " business" post to a home address, the "director" is entitled to separate home life from work.

*Business* being the key word here

 

Perhaps I should consider their phishing letter as as a form of harassment then?

company directors are supposed to have their home addresses listed at Companies House so it is public information. needless to say, many dont do this and use an office address instead. This is unlawful but no-one has ever been rebuked for doing so.

So, can you post up the home address of a director of a company? Yes. Can you use the information to threaten or harass them? No.

I have in the past written to the home address of the boss of Ebay Uk to send legal documents to them rather than the letterbox registered addtress they have and ignore. You may do this but be careful of what you send that way. A cease and desist letter is OK but a general rant about their company might be enough to get their attention for the wrong reason. I'm sure you are a reasonable person and know the difference anyway so you have really already answered you own question.

They have free access to your data because you gave them permission to do so. If you look on any agreement it will say about passing details to a third party, DCA are one of those third parties.

That would be a yes and a no. Details such as name, past address yes. But no as too my present address, this would've had to be gained by other means. IF there is a debt it would be well in excess of 8 years,

And we have moved twice since then (no not hiding, we sold our flat and brought our current home out in the sticks)

 

ericsbrother - I don't do rants, it's counter -productive, I do polite and legal, and sent to the correct address, never to a Virtual Office or a PO Box ;)
