Dear Consumer forums

I am currently being perused by the idiots at Robinson, Prey & Co . (the shark pun is intended).Allegedly I owed £20 to Paypal Europe from 2002?? Not my debt as far as I am aware!!

I received the first demanding letter in July 2007…same old rubbish…threats and yellow paper..

I replied in writing to ask for evidence of the debt saying that the onus was on the debt collecting company to collect the evidence.

Low and behold…two months later they sent me the big big evidence….which consisted of…. an email address I have no knowledge off ?? No more information…no contract nothing!!

Consequently I ignored them

Subsequently, during August the persistent phone calls began and I persistently ignored them J. However I was caught on a bad day and I answered a call from them. I was very cleverly manipulated into talking to them by a very skilled shark. EEEKKKK . The nice Shark from RWC (with glass in her teeth) said it was a pay\pal account registered to an email address that was registered in my name. I denied all knowledge and she advised that I contact Paypal to prove my innocence. (I thought we were innocent till proven guilty??) Never mind!! The shark suggested that I was a victim of fraud and Paypal would investigate fully. The shark said that I could prove my innocence by contacting paypal fraud squad.

I can’t contact paypal I protested!!! Because I don’t have a paypal account to investigate!!! But the shark could not compute this data as she was only a sea animal with a brain smaller than an amoeba…

Anyhow, the story moves on…I sent them another letter telling them if they insisted upon telephoning my home I would peruse a criminal offence of harassment.

Plus I told them that they needed as the creditors to prove the debt is belonging to the debtors named!! Which by the way was not me...but an email address i had never hear off...


Are you still with me?:shock:

Bloody shark has ignored my requests and is still ringing my home….and what is worse they have asked for my telephone number at work!!! Even though I told them it is not appropriate to call me at work!!

How can I get it though these collectors R&W (the dumb sharks) that I do not owe this debt of £20

There is no proof I owe this debt as far as i can see

And please stop ringing me at home and causing me grief and do not ring my work as it is inappropriate.

And i haved asked and asked then to please send me a contract that says I owe this debt so I can take it court! But it appears the sharks are deaf!!:?

Can i actually take them to court asthey are harassing me unduely..me thinks:rolleyes:

I'm more sinned against

When they phone and ask for me now, i say, oh hi, i will go and get him, i turn up the music and put the phone by by the stereo.

nearly 9 minutes is the longest they have held on so far before hanging up.

Works for me.

NCO also work for Paypoo.


I have had similar experiences with NCO.


If you dont owe Paypal go get a solicitor and start aProtection from harassment claim against them.


What you need to do is send them a SAR telling you want every last scrap of data which concerns you as a data subject or which contains your personal data.


They have 40 days to provide this. Once you get it, it will show where they got your phone number from and every other bit of data you need to nail them for harassment.


Alternatively- are you 100% sure that you dont owe Paypal £20?

You could get BT's choose to refuse and add their number to the no accept calls from list. There is also a letter you can send them telling them to desist and contact you by letter only. The letter is on this site in a templates library, but I am new and i cannot find it again easily, maybe someone more familiar with what is where here can help. Also, maybe get your post moved to dca section for more help ? Lot of people having problems with robinson way.

Thus will not stop until you have their nads in a vice. Sorry to be brutal, but that is the truth.


They are hoping you will send them £20 to make them go away.


If you owe them £20, pay them.


If not, make them pay dearly for their harassment of you.


Youve already sent them a letter before action.


Now go see a solicitor and make it happen, or ask how to do it on here.


I'm sure it could be done quite simply through Small Claims.
