Reasons why you were called by 01242508616
Oriel Debt Collection could call you from various numbers. The main reasons they call people are:
- To collect payment – The primary reason for Oriel’s call is ultimately to get you to pay your debt immediately, ideally right then over the phone. If you cannot afford to pay the total, then Oriel might suggest that you arrange an ongoing monthly instalment plan.
- To gather more information – Oriel will likely request more information about your situation including a copy of your monthly budget (if you have one) illustrating your income and expenses – especially if you cannot pay. They might also like to know more about your living circumstances and whether you have any valuables in your possession.
- To intimidate you – Unlike letters, Oriel can begin to suffocate you a little by calling you regularly making the situation feel a lot more uncomfortable to squeeze payment from you. They may also threaten CCJs or home visits should they get the chance.
