- Should the amount be more than you can handle, ask the creditor about available payment plans, such as monthly payments that you can make to clear the debt.
- If the debt has been in existence for over six months and neither you nor the creditor has taken action in that time, then the debt should be written off. Check out the details to see whether the statute of limitations has expired.

You could call or write a letter to the ombudsman informing them of the harassment and how it is against the standards of practice. The ombudsman will contact the creditor or collection agency and take action to correct the matter. You could even be compensated for the distress.
