DLA chasing again at work

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Repossession : One Thread

A few weeks ago I received a letter at work from DLA chasing after 8 months of silence for money on behalf of Abbey. At that time following some excellent advice from this site I wrote back to them and asked them not to contact me at work - as I have been writing to them for the past year from my home address they had no need to. They then said that I hadn't responded to letters they'd sent to my home (incidentally this is untrue). I wrote back at the beginning of last week stating that I strongly dispute that, but until they provide me with documents to prove their claim I couldn't help them and that they should contact me at home. Today they telephoned my personnel manager leaving a message to say that they were trying to track me down and make contact with me to send me some correspondence, could they confirm my job title, department etc. I have recorded this message to prove their underhand tactics but I'm not sure what to do with it! Should i get a solicitor to write to them about their continued harrassment? Should I write back myself?

Can anyone tell me under what rules is this dodgy ground they're treading? A good thing is that I'm now so angry that I can't be scared into breaking under the pressure!

Any advice gratefully received.

Daft as this sounds... this is fantastic news. They are harassing you and doing it illegally and despite warnings to boot. You need to get a solicitor on them. I've answered a previous query on harassment by pointing to a link that takes you to a site that specialises in this.

I don't have the link to hand, but if you trawl the questions for the last six weeks you will find it.
