How to Handle ABC Collectors?

Blocking Telephone Calls

If you are a BT customer and you are finding it difficult to deal with telephone calls from your creditors, the ‘Call Protect’ service might help you. The service allows you to refuse calls from up to 10 different numbers. This service is usually free. If you have a different phone provider, contact them and ask if they have a similar service.

Legal Options

could consider the following options in very serious cases of harassment or other illegal behavior by your creditors. It is very important to get proper legal advice about these options, as they are complicated and can be costly.</>

Protection from Harassment Act 1997

Upsetting or distressing behavior by the creditors and debt collection agencies could count as “harassment” under section 8 of the Protection from Harassment Act 1997. Under the Act, you can raise a civil action to get either an ‘interdict’ (an order to stop contacting you) or a ‘non-harassment order’.

Communications Act 2003

Section 127 of this Act says that a person is guilty of an offense if they send a message with the purpose of “causing annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety to another”. If your creditor is found guilty, they can be fined or imprisoned.

How Can Debt Academy Help You?

Debt Academy makes money by collecting delinquent debts. Sometimes, Debt Academy acts on behalf of your original creditor and gets paid a portion of what’s recovered. In other cases, it will purchase the debt from the original creditor for a fraction of the actual value. The collector then gets to keep all of the recovered debt.

Debt Academy can reduce debt by up to 49 percent and has fees within the normal range of 15 to 20 percent. The representatives are quick to reply and thoroughly explain the entire program to all the secret shoppers. Debt Academy provides all the forms necessary to notify your creditors you’ve entered a hardship program and gives you access to a client dashboard where you can get updates on how your settlement is proceeding.
