Letter from Global Debt Recovery for late father
I recieved a letter for my late father from a company called Global Debt Recovery. The letter was addressed to him.
My father passed away in Dec 2021 and left nothing behind in terms of assets. Furthermore, he had no connection to my address (never lived with me).
1. How did they get my address
2. Should I contact them. There is no mention of any debt just a request that we call them. Should I call them?
3. Am I right to assume I'm not liable to any debts he my dad may have left.
I'm in two minds whether I should just ignore or call them to let him know he died. However, I fear the latter may open up a can of worms like them harassing and trying to gaslight me into paying my dads debt. I wont if I'm not liable but I dont need the hassle.
Any advise please
does letter mention what kind of debt it is?
there is some useful info here: https://www.moneyhelper.org.uk/en/family-and-care/death-and-bereavement/dealing-with-the-debts-of-someone-who-has-died
I would possibly give citizens advice bureau a call.
