Scaring Lenders and Each Other! Halloween at Oracle Legal

As well as scaring lenders into paying out full PPI refunds, we spent the whole of yesterday scaring each other as we donned our best Halloween costumes and had a little Fancy Dress competition…


Which one is your winner?

Little did our clients know that their calls were being answered by Zombie Sailors, dead theatre ushers, a clown, a sinister Snow White and even the Joker! We asked every staff member to vote for their favourite outfit and there was one clear winner – our Customer Satisfaction Ambassador, Shelby.


Shelby went for a zombie Dorothy outfit complete with exposed rib-cage and white contact lenses, a worthy winner. Second place went to Rick our Online Marketing Wizard, or in this case a dead theatre usher. I asked the winners about their costumes…

Hi Shelby, did you think you would win?

“I did think i had a good chance but there was some strong competition.”

What do you think won it for you?

“It was all about the eyes plus I got up at 7.10 to do my costume, so the effort was there!”

What will you do with your £50 River Island voucher prize?

“I’ll be buying some clothes.”

I guess she will, runner up Rick had this to say…

Did you fancy your chances?

“I knew it’d be tough as I know the efforts we all go to and thought I’d just give it my best shot.”

“I just thought it took a normal situation and made it freaky and scary, it was different. If I’m honest it was a protest against the overpricing of confectionery in modern cinemas – no one should have to pay £5 for pick and mix.”

Well said Rick, wierd and political – a bit like Boris Johnson. And what will you spend the £25 iTunes voucher on?

“The voucher will go on an array of applications for my iPhone 5S.”

Excellent, thanks to everyone for taking part!
