Who called me on 01782971404?

Advanatsi Credit Limited use the number 01782971404 to call people they believe owe money. Advantis is a UK debt collection agency, and they might call you from other numbers as well. 

Advantis Debt Collection is one of the most known debt collection agencies in the UK. This is why our team has already written about them in our comprehensive Advantis Debt Collection guide. If you can’t find answers to your immediate questions below, we suggest checking out this free post after. 

Why has 01782971404 contacted me?

We cannot say for absolute certain, but there is a good chance you’ve been called from 01782971404 by an Advantis Debt Collection agent to ask you to pay a debt. There is a chance that they’ve called you but are looking for someone else. 

However, in our experience, debt collection agencies usually resort to calls and texts when they have been unsuccessful at communicating with you in writing. This is because letters must be sent to allow them to take you to court. 

Thus, you’re more likely to get called by Advantis Debt Collection if you have ignored their debt request letters, or if they sent those letters to the wrong address, such as your previous residence. 

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 Advantis Debt Collection’s calls?

Technically, you don’t have any obligation to pick up the phone to Advantis Debt Collection and you could therefore ignore their calls. But it’s advisable that you communicate with them if they’re asking you to pay a debt, preferably in writing. 

If you haven’t received any letters, it might be worth answering one call to find out what it’s all about. They should confirm your details and tell you about the debt – never the other way around. 

How do I stop Advantis from contacting me?

You can’t stop Advantis Debt Collection from contacting you altogether. But you can stop them from calling you or calling too frequently. 

The FCA has strict rules on how debt collection agencies should communicate with debtors. They shouldn’t be calling too often anyway, or this could be seen as harassment. 

Another important rule that works in your favour is the communication preferences rule. This is your right to tell Advantis how you want to be contacted. It must be done in writing and it’s best to keep a copy and get proof of posting. Advnatis then has to respect your wishes, which could be to only communicate with about the matter in writing.
