Why am I being called by 01782401191?

Advantis Credit could call you from several numbers. They are likely to be calling from 01782401191 for the following reasons:

  • To collect payment – The primary focus of a follow-up call is for them to clearly outline your debt total and request that you pay its entirety by card payment over the phone. If you cannot pay the outstanding balance in full then often they will ask that you pay monthly instalments until the debt is cleared.
    
  • To get more information – if you are unable to pay the debt completely, the next priority for Advantis Credit is to request more information from you. This information will mainly consist of the reasons you are unable to pay, including the details of your income and living expenses, alongside any details that may help them recover the debt in the future.
    
  • To intimidate you – When the letter sent by Advantis Credit fails to get you to pay, they will use a phone call to heap more pressure on you. They will often do this by exaggerating the timeline of what might happen if you continue to ignore your debt by threatening to visit you at home and take you to court to settle the debt – both can be very traumatising.

Your Rights with Advantis Collectors

We’ve written an extensive article on how to deal with Advantis Credit and some ways that you can stop them.

Remember, it’s important to know your rights when dealing with debt collectors to avoid being taken advantage of. Here are some of the basics you should know:

Debt Collectors Can But They Can’t
Contact you by phone or mail. Call you after 9pm or before 8am.
Conduct home visits (on rare occasions) and knock on your door. Forbily enter your home, or stay if you ask them to leave.
Threaten to take you to court by suing you for payment on a debt. Harrass you, including threats of violence, repeated calls and visits, or abusive language.
Negotiate a debt settlement. Tip: make sure to get this new arrangement in writing. Visit your workplace.
Access your bank account, but only after a court judgment has been made. Take anything from your home or threaten to do so.
Sell your debt. Speak to other people about your debt without your permission.
Contact you frequently. Keep doing so if you request that they reduce communications.
