Let’s find out more about Opos and how they work…
Will Opos come to my house to collect debts?
Opos may have appointed field agents to make home visits to discuss the alleged debt. These visits can be very distressing not only for the person who is the named debtor, but for the entire family. These methods can have a detrimental effect to your mental and physical health, and to the people around you.
These are all very common tactics which Opos use to get in touch with the people who owe them money. Without appointing a debt company to represent you, this may continue.
As a long-established independent debt website, we have a vast experience of dealing with creditors such as Opos. We understand the tactics that they use, and we can work with you to get them to stop.
How will Opos chase me if I don’t pay?
Creditors such as Opos use computer systems (often known as customer relationship management systems) to keep on top of their debtors. They often follow a debt process which will make them the most profit. These methods are often seen as aggressive and you may have seen documentaries and news articles criticising the heavy-handed nature of debt collectors and bailiffs. Although the Government have come some way to reduce their powers, the main tactic continues: intimidation.
The first point of contact which Opos may use will be an introductory phone call and letter. This is to set out their pre-action protocol. You will usually receive (in writing) a letter explaining the total amount of debt owed, any charges/penalties which may have been accrued and a tight deadline for you to repay the debt in full. The letter will usually mention what steps will happen if you do not pay the debt in full. These steps are usually:
- A home visit
- A county court judgement (CCJ), issued by Opos if you fail to repay the debt within this tight deadline
- A threat of bankruptcy (usually if the debt is over £750)
Letters like this are very standard with every credit provider and not just Opos. It is important to not take these letters personally. There is help at hand, but you should act quickly.
If you have been contacted by Opos, contact us immediately and we will try to deal with them on your behalf.

This does not have any solid definition but be assured that this means that you should not feel harassed by Opos. You cannot use this as a defence to avoid repaying your debt. You can ask that Opos only contact you in writing, but if you do this you must make sure that you are responsive to these letters.
