Who Is Calling From 133508520 and Why Won’t They Stop Ringing?

Most people do not bother with unknown numbers. Spam calls are rampant, but when a phone number calls you repeatedly, you need to know who it is.

  • To collect payment
  • To get more information from you

What You Should Do When You Receive a Call From 01133508520

If you receive a call from 01133508520, you might not know where to begin to get the issue resolved. Luckily, there are some steps you can take to get rid of the pesky debt collector calls.

If You Do Not Believe You Have a Valid Debt

When you receive a call from a debt recovery service, the first step is to determine if the debt is indeed yours. If you believe the phone calls are in error, here are the steps you should take to resolve the issue:

  1. File a debt verification request. They are required to send you back a debt validation letter in writing verifying the original owner of the debt, what the debt was for, how much is owed, and the age of the debt.
  2. If the debt is not valid, dispute the debt to have it removed.
  3. If the company will not remove the erroneous debt from your credit profile, contact your local financial ombudsman. After contacting the ombudsman, you should hear back within ten business days.

If the Debt Is Legitimate

If you know that the debt is yours, it is still beneficial to ask for a debt validation letter to verify the information.

  1. If you have a debt with IMFS, you need to check the age of the debt. In the United Kingdom, most debt has a six-year statute of limitations. This means after six years the debt will not affect your credit score.
  2. If you have the money, the easiest solution to debt recovery is to pay the debt in full.
  3. You can make a payment arrangement if you can't pay the debt in full.
  4. If you wish to cease the annoying debt recovery calls, ask the caller to stop calling. Legally, if you ask, they must stop contacting you.
