What do I do if I am under debt counselling and a credit provider phones or harasses me?
DebtBusters suggest that clients advise the credit providers that they have applied for debt review in terms of section 86 of the National Credit Act.
If the credit providers ask for proof, clients will be able to show them their DebtBusters receipt.
Clients should also request that the credit providers contact DebtbBusters on 0869 99 06 06. If the credit providers do not desist in this practice, please send a complaint through to www.ncr.org.za.
On many occasions, credit providers sell their books of debt and thus, clients can be harassed by another debt collector.
Debt collectors still have to follow the national credit act, therefore allowing clients the right to threaten to report them.
