Debt collection / solicitors letters to have debt written off UK?

I have recently received some information from someone about sending off a letter to a company that has my debt passed over to them. This is the letter and tips.

Can anyone tell me how come I have received 5 packages in the last 2 weeks that i didn't order?

I did however place an order by phone with a totally different reputable company. These other 5 ripoff companies don't have my ...

This story is true and stands as one of the worst instances of consumer fraud on record. Yes. beware of Southland Corporation or 7/11.

I was wondering if there were any Canadian consumer laws regarding this? Or any international laws, ...
