Dont piss off debt collectors. Rss

last saturday(not yesterday the one before) i made the mistake of hanging up on a debt collector(OOPS) anyways its bout an old optus account and well they calle don a saturday adn i had DD throwing up and they annoy me so when he wanted to 'confirm' my details i told him not so pleasantly that since he was calling me he could confirm MY details to me as i had mo idea who he was and wasnt bout to give me personal details to any one over the phone for any reason. and in the end i hung up on him.
skp to today and i checked my P.O Box (im pretty lazy at checking it, always bills!) i had a letter to pay the $800 within 72 hours or they're gonna take me to court, its their final motice and the 72 hours wold have been up on the 9-8-07 so what do i do now ladies? pay it or just see what they do?

Pay it! optus are so quick to put a blemish on your credit rating. It could affect you somewhere down the line.

Throw it away.

If they don't get the money by the due date they will call again and ask you to make a payment arangemnet.

They only send the letters to try and scare you.
i do already have bad credit but do they actually take ya to court?

why on earth would u rack up a fone bill that high? lol WOW thats heaps!
Call their bluff... don't pay it!! Us huggies mums will send you a care package in jail!! hehe seriously though letters like that scare the shit out of me so I would probably be a goody goody and pay it.


Small claims court probably, but $800 plus the court costs. If you owe the money you owe the money just try and avoid the extra charges

not actually a bill. the ex had the phone in my name and its a cancellation of contract bill. i know he should have to pay it but technically he has, i had a phone in his name and when we split i kinda found a lot of people to call(also we dont speak, at all)

so is it in ur ex's name or what?
Did you sign for it when the contract was taken out. I assume you would have to have the phone in your name.
