Reasons why you were called by 02031478000

Fredrickson could call you from multiple numbers. The main reasons they call people are: 

  1. To collect payment – The main reason behind a phone call is for Fredrickson to try to make you claim ownership of the debt and to request that you make a card payment over the phone to cover the debt. If you are unable to pay the entire balance then often they will request that you agree to pay monthly instalments until the balance is zero.

  2. To get more information – if you maintain that you are unable to pay the debt in any form then the second priority for Fredrickson is to request more information from you. This information will mostly 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.

  3. To intimidate you – During Fredrickson phone calls they may try to persuade you that the situation is now closer-to-home by overplaying what might happen if you continue to ignore the debt by threatening home visits and CCJs. Although, this could happen, their calls ultimately aim to scare you into paying the debt as soon as possible.
