    Having fun with Debitas

    Having fun with Debitas 13th Feb 08 at 7:14 PM
    After having an all out argument with Capital One where my card was used fraudulently - they decided because I take care of my card then it MUST be my fault.

    So they passed it over to Debitas who have written the normal threatening letters, so I have written to them asking for the CCA etc. They have been calling persistently now for weeks - so today I decided to have some fun:

    Debitas: Hello can I speak to Mr X
    Me: You are
    Debitas: Ok, can you confirm your date of birth
    Me: Nope
    Debitas: Sorry
    Me: You're forgiven
    Debitas: Sorry
    Me: ...
    Debitas: I guess you know what this is about - call us back (hangs up)

    Call 2:
    Debitas: Hello can I speak to Mr X
    Me: Who?
    Debitas: Mr X
    Me: Why would you like to speak to him?
    Debitas: Sorry...?
    Me: You're forgiven
    Debitas: Is this Mr X
    Me: Oh, well why don't you tell me your name first
    Debitas: That's irrelevant
    Me: But if you want to get to know me then it's only right I get to know you as well
    Debitas: (hangs up)

    Call 3:
    Debitas: Hello, can I speak to Mr X
    Me: He's dead
    Debitas: Oh, can you send us a copy of the death certificate?
    Me: Nope - I don't know who you are
    Debitas: We are Debitas Legal Services part of the capital one group
    Me: And...?
    Debitas: Erm, give me a sec (hangs up)

    Call 4:
    Debitas: Hello, can I...
    Me: (interupting) I was just sleeping
    Debitas: Can I speak to...
    Me: (interupting) What, I'm going back to sleep (hangs up)

    Call 5:
    Debitas: Hello, can I speak to Mr X
    Me: Only if I can speak to Santa Claus
    Debitas: Sorry (hangs up)

    I'm getting to enjoy this now - what other questions should I ask?

  • Surprised at a few nasty replies re cilla. The respectful thing when someone dies is say nice or say nowt. Grieving relatives may be reading

  • You can judge your age by what #cilla means to you. For me its not the singing, its blind date and surprise surprise. Sad news #ripcilla

  • I blame Popeye!
