​​Who Called Me on 01516504800?

A call from 01516504800 is a call from Jacobs Enforcement. This is a bailiff company that works to enforce court orders for an individual to pay a debt. They also chase debts that don’t require a court order to make them enforceable. 

Jacobs Enforcement has been on the go since 1959. Their long-standing presence in the debt enforcement industry has put them on the MoneyNerd radar multiple times. We’ve already dedicated a post to helping people deal with Jacobs Enforcement

Why has 01516504800 contacted me?

A call from 01516504800 is probably a call from one of the bailiffs working for Jacobs Enforcement. They might be calling for a number of reasons, such as:

  1. To get you to pay a debt
  2. To arrange a repayment plan
  3. To tell you they’re at your door

It’s really hard to say why they’re calling, but it probably isn’t good news. 

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

Can I ignore Jacobs Enforcement’s calls?

We don’t recommend ignoring Jacobs Enforcement calls. 

By ignoring them you can make your debt situation worse. This is because they can add fees as they progress through the different steps to try and get you to pay. Their fees are fixed by law, but they are very expensive. 

You are restricted in the ways you can fight back against bailiffs because a court has already decided that you owe the debt. Cooperation may be the best way to deal with the situation now. You might be able to arrange a secured payment schedule to make the repayment more affordable. This is known as a Controlled Goods Agreement (CGA).

How do I stop Jacobs Enforcement from contacting me?

Jacobs Enforcement can contact you to enforce a debt that a court has decided you owe. For this reason, you cannot stop Jacobs Enforcement from contacting you about this debt. 

However, there are still rules on how firms should treat you during communications. These are explained on this FCA page. If any of these rules are broken, you should complain about Jacobs Enforcement.
