Putting an End to Harassing Collection Calls: A Success Story

Harassment calls

Are you or someone you know swamped with relentless collection calls? Imagine receiving over 50 calls a day, exacerbating an already distressing financial situation. This was the reality for one of my clients until we took action.

Frustration Amidst Financial Struggles

Despite repeated attempts to reason with Collection Department Executives, providing settlement letters, and explaining their dire financial struggles, no resolution seemed in sight. The offered waivers were insufficient, and paying the demanded amount in a lump sum was practically impossible.

Verbal Abuse and Insults

Desperate for relief, the client opted for Call Forwarding, hoping to evade the relentless barrage of calls. However, this move backfired as agents resorted to contacting the client’s family and friends, using illegal tactics to access their contact information. They didn’t stop there. They verbally abused the client’s loved ones, suggesting they beg for money on the streets due to missed EMIs.

Taking Action

Thankfully, the client had the foresight to keep call recordings active, capturing evidence of the harassment. Armed with these recordings, we took immediate action, lodging an Electronic First Information Report (E-FIR) against the offending recovery agents.

Escalation and Advocacy

Simultaneously, we reached out to Nodal Officers and escalated the matter to higher authorities, including Grievance Redressal. Utilizing social media as a powerful tool, we filed multiple Twitter complaints daily, demanding activation of Do Not Disturb (DND) for the client’s number. With strategic hashtags and tagging relevant authorities, the tweets gained significant attention, putting pressure on the banks to respond.

Relief and Validation

The outcome was promising. The incessant calls reduced by nearly 90%, bringing immense relief to the client and validating the effectiveness of our actions. It serves as a testament to the power of advocacy and utilizing available channels to address injustice.
