​​Who Called Me from 01782401121?

It was a debt collection agency that called you from 01782401121. Specifically, it was Advantis Debt Collectors. They may also try to call and text you from other numbers. 

Advantis is no small player in the UK’s debt collection scene. They’re one of the most prominent and active debt collectors out there and have been operating since 2004. This is why we thought it necessary to help people deal with them by creating the How to Beat Advantis guide

Read on for crucial information and return to the above guide for further details after! 

Why has 01782401121 contacted me?

01782401121 might have contacted you to pay a debt. But we cannot confirm this and they might have got the wrong number.

Debt collection businesses will usually only keep calling when you haven’t responded to their letters asking you to pay the debt. Debt collection agencies must send specific letters asking for payment if they later want to take legal action. 

If you haven’t received any letters, this might be because:

  1. They have the wrong person
  2. They weren’t able to trace your current address
  3. They’ve sent them to the wrong address

In this situation, it might be worthwhile answering one call to find out why they’re calling. But let them do the talking as you don’t need to confirm anything over the phone. They should be telling you the details.

Can I ignore Advantis Debt Collector calls?

You shouldn’t ignore Advantis Credit Limited completely as you might be taken to court, but you don’t have to take their calls or reply to text messages. 

Instead, debt charities advise people to respond to the debt letter they received. You can respond in different ways without having to pay straight away – and maybe not at all. These responses are explained in detail in our How to Beat Debt Collectors post

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.
