  • Civil recovery telephoning me?

    Hi, so I won't dither around the subject of having a totally regrettable moment of madness sealing from a pound land store and getting Caught
    I feel awful, but from this forum I've gathered just to ignore letters of civil recovery and just ride it out
    However a couple of days ago I received a telephone call from the company which well terrified me
    Do I continue to ignore the letters and if they call again ignore it (it was a private number)

    I don't think there is any change to what you've already read.

    In what way did the call terrify you, were they being particularly aggressive, did they say anything in particular that gave you cause for concern?

    It sounds like a scare tactic on their part however if you don't want them phoning you then you can write to them and state that you require them to correspond in writing only and that if they continue to contact you by any other means, then you will deem it as harassment for which you reserve the right to bring a claim actionable in both the criminal and/or civil courts.

    But the general gist of things I think is to ignore. I'll tag [MENTION=39710]des8[/MENTION] in case he has anything further to add.

    Out of curiosity how did they get your mobile number?

      Aw thank you, they got my number when the manager of the store took my information they also asked for my telephone, then called it whilst I was there to check it was correct. So I assumed they passed it on to the civil recovery guys.
      It just made me jump out my skin a little as everything I read nothing mentioned a phone call. So thought I'd double check that I should keep ignoring it

        Hi there.
        I would ignore them, and if possible block their number.

        They know the chances of you actually taking action against them as a company for harassment is going to be very slight, and they seem to think that any response at all is an indication that their tactics are working. Acknowledge their existence and they redouble their efforts.

          This company seems to come up a number of times on LB. The advice is always the same but I wonder if there is any action that "victims" can take to teach them a lesson?

            Publicity wise it is difficult because by it's nature, and how RLP are still going, is that the people on the receiving end are often ashamed, embarassed, worried etc about speaking out making any formal complaints and so on.

            Telephoning is a new tactic. If they continue you are quite entitled to tell them you will not discuss over the telephone and to only to contact you in writing.
