Hi All, Had letter from above mentioned company for a person (relative) who was homeless and lived on my sofa for most of a year.

 

That was 5 years ago, he moved out to his own flat but a few years ago housing benefit suddenly stopped paying the rent so he had to move out and has been moving around living at friends places.

 

Been getting letters for around a year now, marked some as not at this address and dropped them in the post box. Told the person they had the letters and what they were for as we could see in the address window exactly what it was. Its the landlord of the place they lived at previously wanting teh unpaid portion of the rent.

 

Got 2 letters the same day just before Christmas and thought to open one and give them a call to make sure they knew they could not get them at this address. As truth be told we were getting tired of the letters and they were wasting their time trying to get them at this address.

 

When i called them i told them he moved out around 5 years ago and was only here because he was homeless, they said they had information we were related and this was why they were sending letters here. I pointed out that they cannot be contacted here so no point sending letters here. Had snooty woman tell me she knew we were related, to which is replyed i didnt care. Then got a goodbye and they hung up on me.

 

Today 2 more latters, they used a colour printer this time as in the address window it had a giant final notice in red, saying 10 days to pay before we recommend legal action.

 

Now i have told these idiots verbally and by returning the letters (unopened) marked not at this address, that they cannot contact them here, truth be told i dont even know their current address, or how long they will be there for. The person they want is unemployed and homeless.

 

If i get legal documents through or a knock on the door what are my options for this?

This is against FCA debt collection rules on communications, where they are not allowed to communicate via a third party e.g relative.

 

Suggest a formal complaint in writing by recorded delivery. They cannot serve documents at your address, as they have to believe the debtor lives at your address. So document service should be refused by sending them back by recorded delivery.


We could do with some help from you.

They phoned my house today. The wife answered and told them no one by that name at this address to which they promptly hung up. They did not say who they were but a google of the number brings up it is them. Have the name of their "client" who they are acting for and may give them a ring to say your collection people are barking up the wrong tree....they ARE local to me so if it come to it i can go intot heir office and create a stink.

Make sure you have a log of all their contacts and keep all letters from now on and log of any phone calls
