Alternative Ways to Resolve Customer Service Complaints
- Making a complaint to your creditor - You should write to the harassing creditor and request that they cease. Tell them how you wish to be contacted in the future and want a written confirmation.
You should state in the letter that harassment is illegal and that if your creditor does not cease, you will take legal action. Your creditor has three business days to react informally after receiving your complaint. It could be done over the phone or via email. The final response letter may take longer. Even if they respond within three business days, your creditor is required to disclose your complaint to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
- When Do you Make a Complaint? - You should complain when:
- You are not the person who owes the debt
- The amount you're being asked to pay is incorrect
- the business is repeatedly contacting you about the debt
- You're in financial difficulty, and the company isn't being helpful
- Your debt isn't enforceable
- How do I contact the Ombudsman? - First, speak with the creditor. For most complaints, they must respond in writing within eight weeks. Let the ombudsman know if you're displeased with their response or if they don't communicate at all.
We can tell the firm what to do if we discover it has done something wrong or has not treated you fairly. Depending on the circumstances, we may urge a lender to undertake a variety of things to make things right. It usually entails returning you to where you would have been if nothing had gone wrong. Correcting someone's credit report, agreeing on a repayment plan, altering the amount you owe, or compensating you for what happened are examples of what it could include.
How Long Can Debt Collectors Collect Debt from Me?
A creditor has six years to pursue you for a debt under the Limitations Act of 1980. Or twelve years for specific mortgage shortfalls. You must not have made a single payment or admission of your debt to your creditor over these six years.
