    Fredrickson International harrassing automated message phone calls 7th Jul 11 at 2:18 PM
    Hi everyone,

    Firstly I have no debt, and am not the person they have named in their automated message. But thought it appropriate to post here, as it is harassment by phone regarding an alleged debt.

    I have recently started receiving calls from Fredrickson International. I have learned by searching that they are a debt collection agency. They often do not mention a name in their messages, but did on one occasion, and it's not my name. These messages are in an automated computer voice (text to speech) and if not answered end up left on the answering machine. I add their numbers to the incoming call barr list on my Panasonic phone, but it seems they use a new number each time. They call from various different numbers. They have also sent an SMS message. Messages below...

    Receive this one most.
    This is an urgent message, please contact Fredrickson International on 02031478164 quoting reference number XXXXXXX thank you.
    Received this longer one with name included once.
    Hello, this is Fredrickson International, calling with an important message for Mr (name indeterminate, sounds like Grunderwood). Please can you call us back on 08458396014 between 8am and 9pm monday to friday, and 8am and 4pm saturday, quoting reference number XXXXXXX as soon as possible. That's 08458396014 quoting reference number XXXXXXX.
    Numbers used so far include

    01204770420
    Various "out of area" ones
    02030608420
    02392386688
    02087599577

    SMS came from
    08443585861

    Any magic way to make them get lost? Ignore or call them back and waste their time?
