The background

All of this stops me being the victim on subsequent calls - if they don’t call again, I cannot charge. However it almost makes me look forward to the calls, instead of dreading them. Click on HOW TO DO IT for templates of letters you can use.

20th October 2013 I got £5000 from a firm of solicitors by suing them for damages under the Privacy of Electronic Communications Regulations.
