Who Called me from 01513293649?

Why has 01513293649 contacted me?

A call from 01513293649 probably means you’re being chased for an unpaid debt, unless Global Recovery Services has the wrong number for the alleged debtor. 

Debt collection agencies usually start the collection process by sending a letter to the debtor’s last known address. This is because letters need to be sent to escalate to legal action later. 

If they’re calling, it may be the case that you didn’t receive a letter, or you ignored their debt letters. 

How a debt solution could help

Some debt solutions can:

  1. Stop nasty calls from creditors
  2. Freeze interest and charges
  3. Reduce your monthly payments

A few debt solutions can even result in writing off some of your debt.

Here’s an example:


Situation

Monthly income £2,504
Monthly expenses £2,345
Total debt £32,049

Monthly debt repayments

Before £587
After £158

£429 reduction in monthly payments

Can I ignore Global Recovery Services’ calls?

You’re never obligated to answer a call from 01513293649. But it could be beneficial to answer one call to determine the reason for the call(s).

You could ease your worry or anxiety by uncovering what debt they’re trying to collect, and whether you’re really the person they are trying to make contact with. 

If you decide to take their call, let the caller tell you who they’re looking for. Don’t tell them who you are as they should already have these details. 

You should still look for a resolution if they want you to pay a debt. There are effective ways to respond to their debt letters, which are discussed in our main Global Recovery Services guide mentioned near the top of this post. 

How do I stop Global Recovery Services from contacting me?

You cannot stop Global Recovery Services from contacting you altogether. But you can stop or limit them from calling or texting you. 

The FCA states that debtors have the right to provide debt collection businesses with their communication preferences. These preferences should be honoured by the collection company.

What does this mean? It means you could ask them to only contact you in writing. 

If the debt collection business doesn’t respect how you wish to be contacted, you can make a formal complaint, which could have serious consequences for Global Recovery Services.

How do I Complain about Global Recovery Services?

Complain about Global Recovery Services if they don’t respect your communication wishes. Or if they break the other communication rules they must follow. 

You should first direct a complaint to the debt collection company directly. If their response is inadequate or they continue to break rules, you can then report them to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS).

When reporting nuisance and repeat calls, you should provide the FOS with evidence. This is typically best done with call logs from your mobile network provider. 

You can also complain about Global Recovery Services when they act wrongfully in other ways, such as threatening or intimidating you.
