Will I Have a UK Police Record for Not Paying My Mobile Phone Bill? – Salman

“Dear Jon,

I owe a particular phone company around 1600 and haven’t paid anything to them in a year .

I am wondering that would an unpaid phone bill of £1600 would result into a UK police record if not paid over a period of 1 year ? Or its just civil law ?



An unpaid phone bill, or any bill for that matter, is not something the police get involved in and in itself is not a criminal matter, so no worries there.

The only time it might be considered a criminal matter is if fraud or something similar were involved.
