Why would Robinson Way contact you?
Debt collectors like Robinson Way take over the debts that banks and businesses no longer have time or resources to chase.
They tend to have a more direct approach when it comes to getting back the money you owe. This means that you’re highly likely to get regular phone calls, letters and even visits to your home. This could continue until they’re satisfied that they’ve made an agreement with you that suits them.
Do you owe Robinson Way’s debt collectors money?
Every debt collector or agency must give you clear evidence of the money you owe. It doesn’t matter how many times they call or write, unless they provide proof of the debt, then you don’t have to pay them a penny.
You must always check the debt, the amount they’re looking to recover, and make sure it matches up with how much you believe you owe them.
How old is the debt they are collecting?
If you’ve owed the money for a long time, or the company you originally owed the money to has stopped following up your repayments, you may be able to drop the debt completely.
Cases where the debt has become too old to be legally chased, are known as statute barred. If you believe you are in this situation, it’s best contact the lender to discuss this.
If it’s still active, however, you should do everything you can to repay what you owe. If repaying the debt is becoming a struggle, we can advise you on how to arrange payments that fall in line with your budget.
Is Robinson Way treating you unfairly?
The Financial Conduct Authority is designed to makes sure everyone is treated fairly within the rules and regulations that they set out.
If a debt collector breaks any of the rules, they could be liable for prosecution, and you may be able to claim compensation.
There are many strict guidelines that they must follow, including:
- Not calling at unreasonable times
- Calling you at work after you’ve asked them to stop
- Taking payment without permission
- Administering harassment to retrieve payments you can’t realistically afford
These are only a few examples. If you think you’ve been mistreated, contact the FCA as soon as possible.
