Why am I being called by 03458396301?

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

  1. 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 it’s 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.
  2. To get more information – if you are unable to pay the debt completely, the next priority for FredPay 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.
  3. To intimidate you – When the letter sent by FredPay 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.
