Why am I being called by 08008772772?

PRA call debtors from many unique numbers. They are likely to be calling for one the following reasons:

  1. To collect payment – The primary focus of a phone call is for PRA to clearly outline how much you owe to which company and request that you pay it in a lump sum over the phone. If are unable to pay the debt balance in full then they will often ask you to set up a direct debit and pay monthly instalments until the debt is cleared.
  2. To assemble information – if you are unable to pay the debt completely, the next priority for PRA is to attain some information from you. This information will mainly consist of the reason behind your inability to pay, including the details of your income and living expenses, alongside any additional details that may help them recover the debt in the future.
  3. To intimidate you – In order to get people to pay for the debt they owe, sometimes they must be put into uncomfortable positions. This is the exact rationale behind PRA’s phone calls as they want to make you feel uncomfortable by calling regularly so that you have no choice but to pay.
