HiThank you for your question and welcome to Just Answer. I will try to help with this. Please RATE my answer OK SERVICE or above.I presume you are in the UK?
yes, in glasgow, this happened in december and i cancelled within 5 days. I have received letters from a debt recovery firm demanding all the money.
This is a Scots law question then so I will move it to that category for you.
What happens now my question has been moved
Thank you for your question.I am in Glasgow and will try to help you. I suspect like most scams they will eventually give up. They will not sue you for £1000. Write back to the debt collectors with a copy of the letter that you have saying that the deal is cancelled. Tell them if you hear from them again you will report them for harassment.If they send anyone to your home do not let them in. Close the door and say you are calling the police. You don't have to let them onto your property. If they call you at work don't take the call.They will soon tire of this and go away.Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
