As DCAs engage in constant calls and texts even after being told in writing only, by letter I wonder if they can be snared in this trap, Arrow, Lowell, Muckhall Snotcall are you worried? No I thought not.


We could do with some help from you.

I don't think you can class a debt collection company doing business as cold calling. I think the main complaints were for no one there when the phone was picked up, so real computer cold calling.

 

 

My feelings are, like all the other so called clamp downs, nothing will happen and it will just continue.

There are other ways to deal with this issue - having advised the DCA (or creditor), that you will not discuss your financial issues over the phone.. and they persist..

 

Roberts v Bank of Scotland

Thanks CitizenB that is a far better remedy, but it was just a thought that complaining to ICO might help if you go down the Roberts v Bank of Scotland route as evidence you tried to resolve it without litigation.
