Reasons why you were called by 01414470372
Past Due Credit Solutions (PDCS) could call you from many different numbers. The primary reasons they call people are:
- To collect payment – PDCS are likely to call you for the principle reason of getting you to pay the debt promptly over the phone. They will ask that you make a payment via credit/debit card covering the whole sum or that you agree to pay monthly instalments until the account is paid off.
- To gather details – a common debt collector tactic for finding debtors is to send out automated letters to all potential addresses to those with the same/similar names. By calling, debt collectors may be able to identify who owns the debt and then start making plans on how to retrieve it. A phone call from PDCS is likely to be made to gain information about the debtor such as their income, expenses and ownership of items of value which may help them pay off the debt in the future.
- To intimidate you – as previously mentioned, debt collector letters are automated more often than not and therefore not hugely threatening. However, a follow-up call is more likely to put a debtor under pressure and encourage them to pay to prevent collectors from PDCS from coming to their house.
