Woman writes brilliant note after debt collectors threaten her dead father

When Clare-Louise Quilty received a letter from a debt collector and his lawyer threatening her deceased father with legal action if he does not pay his debt, she sent them a brilliant reply note.

Angry that her father can't even be left in peace in the afterlife, her witty letter to the debt collector and his lawyer put them in their place. She wrote:

"Unfortunately my father is no longer contactable at the address in Redcastle, Co. Donegal, as he has actually been residing in Dunboyne Cemetery since January 2008. Attached is a photo of me visiting him at his most recent residence just last week. I don't think he'll be moving elsewhere in the foreseeable future so please feel free to forward any further correspondence there, although I'm not too sure of the quality of his penmanship these days so please be patient when awaiting your response."

Attached to the letter, she sent the solicitors a picture of her kneeling next to her father's grave, aka his "most recent residence."

Quilty's father Laurence passed away in Donegal in 2008. Six years after his death, these solicitors wrote him inquiring about the $4,800 they claimed he owed debt collectors. The letter told Laurence that the debt collectors would obtain a court order forcing the deceased man to sell his house.

Clearly, the debt collectors weren't too on top of this issue seeing as how they waited six years after the man's death to get in contact with him. Quilty concluded her letter:

"If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me. I expect a rapid response as you have obviously been hot on the case of this issue - sometime in the last decade at least!"

Take that, solicitors! Perhaps they'll do a bit more research the next time they attempt to send threatening notices.
