Google Section 40 of the 1970 Administration of Justice Act. Blah, blah "... it is an offence" etc. Bloody magic piece of legislation that I've quoted to the Bailiffs when they've knocked at the door for a debt left by an old tenant. As soo as you mention Section 40 of the 1970 Administration of Justice Act they don't half shift quickly.

Surely if they have your name and address wrong, it isnt you they are pursuing!

Having told them you are nothing to do with the alleged debt, send them by registered post a list of your charges for answering the door, talking to them on the phone etc. Each will have a standing charge of £50, plus a time-related element. Payment strictly within 7 days, and you always get CCJs against non-payers.

Not only will this work, but it will work in court if you decide to take it there. It is unlawful under various Acts to chase someone for a debt not owed by them.

IIRC, they have also committed an offence under the DP Act, by releasing the third party information to you. The have a duty of care to protect that information, and to ensure that the person they contact is the person who owes the debt. Hence, one may receive a letter addressed to "the occupant" from a DCA, asking to confirm one's name.

That said, you have PM

Alternatively, now you have his address...got round his gaff and front him up and tell him that you will continue to do so until he agrees to leave you alone. I doubt his wife would appreciate him bringing his work home. You could also sign up to anything which ends up sending you flyers, updates, catalogues, etc, etc,. Just give his home address.

As someone wrote, although it's nice to "jam their lines", its even nicer to invoice them for your time, as suggested above. Long story short, I've done this with Cix, Barclays, and BT. And it works. Provided you give notice that it is not you, and that further correspondence will give rise to charges for your time.

"Revenge" may be sweet, but cheques from companies are far sweeter.

Now he can visit the cunt and have it out with him , ideally get someone to film it off the street and wind him up that much he clouts you, job done,or get a local car thief to drive a nicked car across his garden into his fancy car .....then call round and ask how things are going, mention "I heard that like me you've had a bit of bother"
