Neighbours Letter from BPO Collections

Recommended Posts

My neighbour, who has literacy problems, has asked me to help him in regard to a letter from BPO Collections.

 

The letter states that they are offering him the opportunity to "save" 50% on his Lowell account which is for an alleged debt to O2 (UK).

 

He denies any knowledge of this debt.

 

Am I right in thinking that the first course of action should be a standard prove it letter?

 

Thanks for any help.

And he has never owned a mobile or had any contract for mobile usage ?

The plot thickens.

 

Just got hold of him and checked his credit file (which he had never done).

 

His current phone contract is with O2 not Vodaphone as he thought.  The contract was taken out in July 2018 and is up to date, No arrears.

 

No other phone contracts listed.

No defaults registered

Greens all the way.

 

Thanks.

unless he gets a letter of claim.

sounds like a like name phishing attempt.

Thanks for that.  I thought it sounded fishy with them offering a 50% discount.
