This morning I received a letter from a different debt collection agency.
The letter is headed, in big, bold orange lettering "AUTHORISED DOORSTEP COLLECTORS VISIT"
They say they have been "authorised" to collect £31.00 on behalf of Sky Subscribers Services Limited. How nice for them.
They then go on to say unless I pay them that they will "authorise" Meritforce Limited to "proceed with a visit to my property".
I have responded thusly, via email:
The letter says that my email will be receipted within 1 hour. The timestamp on my email to them says that I sent the email at 11: 52 on 13th October 2011.
They have not yet replied.
I'll post an update if/when they do reply.
