Hi guys, and thanks in advance for reading my post.
I have a personal loan with a finance company, and due to a change in my personal circumstances have been unable to make payments. I have contacted MABS but they are very busy at the moment and will take a few weeks to get back me sorted.
The current problem is that today a debt collector from a company called Debitask called at the door to my mothers house. I am not sure how they got her address, but they told my sister that I owed them money, and that they needed to speak to me.
She asked for them to leave a note, which states that they will call back to see me this Thursday. My car was parked outside her house, (I left it there in the snow and took a bus home at the weekend), and she watched as he took details from my tax or insurance disk, and took my reg number, (he wiped snow off of it to see the full number).
I don't know what my rights are with regards to this visit. I know that I owe the company money, and am working to get this sorted, but do they have a right to call to my mothers house? Do they have a right to disclose my financial information to my sister? Can I stop them from calling to my Moms house again?
I am so stressed out over this, and any advise that you can offer with regards to talking to and dealing with this debt collector would be extremely helpful.
Thank you in advance!
