Reasons why you were called by 03331214454

We have a more detailed guide to Mortimer Debt, which you can find here.

Mortimer Clarke Solicitors could call you from several numbers.

The main reasons they call people are: 

  1. To collect payment – Mortimer Clarke will most likely be calling you from 03331214454 in order for you to confirm ownership of the debt and for you to pay the entire sum immediately over the phone.
  2. To get more information – The average unsecured debt has increased by 25% year-on-year, rising to £13,9412. So, it’s common for people to struggle to pay. If that’s your case, and you can prove that you are unable to pay in any form on the spot, then Mortimer Clarke will be looking for additional information from you that might help them claim the debt at some point in the future.

  3. To intimidate you – Letters are hardly worrying to some. However, phone calls make the situation appear a lot more personal and a lot more serious. Mortimer Clarke know this, which is why they will attempt to contact you by phone call to get you to pay.

Your Rights With Debt Collectors

While it’s normal for debt collectors to try to intimidate you, they’re not allowed to harass you.

We’ve prepared this quick table that explains what debt collectors can and can’t do. Knowing your rights when dealing with them is crucial to prevent unfair treatment.

If you’d like to learn more, be sure to check out our complete guide.

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.

Remember, debt collectors can’t enter your home or take any of your possessions. If they’re harassing you, you can make a complaint.

  1. Stop nasty calls from creditors
