Yes it's true about the house being credit blacklisted and by the sound of it yours will be which will prevent you getting any credit at all. You can get it removed so that your name will be clear but it's a long old process. I can't remember where does it but a google search will bring it up.

Also if you keep getting abusive phone calls, report it to the police who can then in turn get the details from BT who do log EVERY call.

Next time you get a phone call, answer it and if it is someone you don't know just say, could you wait a second while I switch on my recorder, as part of this process I have to advise you that this call is being recorded and any abuse or threatening behaviour towards us will be passed onto the appropriate authorities, do you understand this. Now who are you looking for?

[SIZE=2]I can assure you that they will not hang around for long, and you can then tell them that you have recently purchased the house and your solicitor will be very interested in this call....................gone. :thumbsup: [/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]Also if you are someone like NTL/VM you can request a service put on your line whereby anyone who with holds their number cannot get through to you , this will not affect any international calls you receive, so if these people with hold or block their number they get a message that your phone does not receive anonymous calls :giggle: :giggle: works a treat for us - LOL[/SIZE]

I had something similar from an ex-g/f who would give me the silent treatment.
Tell the police and they will contact BT, then everytime you get a nuisance call you press "0" after a few calls the police call back to tell you they have a trace and how you do wish to proceed.
I told her what I did and she backed off.

But happens if they have a private (with held) no. Do they get through?

Looking into the house blacklisting, apparently according to the site i just looked at here it no longer applies. However i have some friends who have been refused in the past due to bad credit at an address and then when they've moved they've got it fine. So i'm baffled on that one now. :o

Yes, I was thinking of getting something like that - could people with ex-directory numbers get through though?


Yes, just because they are Ex-Dir does not meant they withhold their number

Ditto
But happens if they have a private (with held) no. Do they get through?


No they will have to find another number to call you on, it's no trouble because my bank withholds their number and they have to use a proper number to call me, same goes for the police, they can't ring from anonymous numbers :w00t: :giggle:

Yeah, I googled it too and got a load of results saying that they don't credit blacklist houses. There must be somewhere I can let them all know once and for all that Mr *** *** NO LONGER LIVES HERE!

If you could find out what court is issuing the warrant for the Baillifs then maybe you could contact them.

if sumone gives you silent treatment all you do is buy a whistel and wen they ring you then hold it to the phone on blow down the whistel down the phone By the way a copper tell me that one lol

Oh and to stop people cumin to your house just show them a copy of your tenancy agreement or show a mortage doc which as a date on it when it started for you house.

Worked for me (They dont blacklists house no more)

Most likely Private ones who get a cut of the collection money so harrass people.

I like it :giggle: might get me one tomorrow.


The whistle works, They don't ring back either! :giggle:
#11
Of course another thing you could do is buy an answer machine and let the caller announce themselves, if it is family they will always say, it's me pick up the phone and then you can answer it, they won't talk to an answer machine :whistling:
#12
Can you still buy them? they are old nowadays.
#13
or the simple thing to do is change your phone number? pay £1 or however much it is to experian, get your credit file which includes your house and anything on there you want to dispute, dispute it in writing and it normally gets taken off.

all for the cost of a couple quid, your problems are sorted. if only all problems could be sorted so quickly?

see post my last post above.



If that'll work I'll do it tomorrow :thumbsup:



you say you dont want to be put out? change the number. what will put you out more? abusive calls at all times of the day and night or changing your number and the calls stop then and there. immediately.

you also then get a 'clean slate' of giving your new number only to those you want to have it, so that ex who still has your number or your daughters ex boyfriend who always was a weirdo, wont have the number.

:thumbsup:

Ask BT about 'choose to refuse' it's usually free for the first month. Once you get a phone call from a withheld or Uk landline/mobile you can press a series of keys (something like 14257) and it asks you if you want that caller barred.

You can bar up to 10 numbers and on the 11th it deletes the 1st and so on. The caller will hear a message that the person they are calling is not accepting their call. If they withhold their number they are then told the person they are calling is not accepting withheld calls.

I used this for a psycho ex, she managed to get up to 8 different numbers before she gave up.

BT's Choose To Refuse

There is a facility now offered by BT to customers being targeted by nuisance callers that is free for 1 month (this should under normal circumstances be long enough). Contact BT on 0800 800 150 for the service to be set up and the conditions of the service explained. BT also offer further services regarding nuisance calls on the same number, including call tracing.

After setup, if a call is received then you dial 1471 to check that number is withheld (if it is not it may be more appropriate to deal with the issue by reporting the matter to the Police). You then replace the handset and pick it up again and then dial 14258 followed by ** (2 stars). This will bar the last caller form ringing the number again (from that phone). The caller will receive a recorded message informing them that they are 'barred from calling this number'. The service may be used for up to 10 different numbers.

It is quite simple to put the receiver down, you don't have to listen to these people, certainly you don't need to speak to them.;-)
