This is a group called Lion Finance. They buy debt from banks and financial institutions at 7 cents in the dollar and then chase and harass the debtors for the full amount. Great and easy business model which is more profitable than most industries
There are many solutions by which to deal with this mob and their like :
1. Simply dont answer your phone when someone calls from a number you dont know. If it is important they will leave a message. If not it was not important at all. Lion will try calling you from mobile numbers and perhaps even international numbers. These are simple to obtain via the internet
2. Go to the app store and download the app trucaller. Then when this mob or a mob of its type calls simply let it ring out then copy that number, enter it into the app and report as spam. When they call again automatically your phone screen will turn red with the warning "SPAM". In addition trucaller will update the number on the phone of everyone who has the app downloaded and it will show up as SPAM on their phones if this mob calls them. This will further frustrate the mob. as they will need to keep changing calling numbers.
3. When you are ready and do want to work out a deal with them simply hire a debt lawyer and offer 10-12 percent of your debt as a final offer. Ask the lawyer to negotiate on your behalf and not release your address and telephone number.
While I am not condoning escaping paying your debts to the original creditor I am encouraging you to kick these debt collection vultures in the gut. These thugs are making a 15X ie 1500% profit for adding no value to the economy. It is legal robbery. So you legally kick them
lion finance The above number rings; I answer and they hang up!!! Lion Finance or CHL Debt collectors? They call non-stop and at 7:30am This is one of the many numbers that Lion Finance Debt Collectors use. Beware!!! Debt collectors. Use different numbers!! I called back number (07) 3292 0444 spoke to a woman but did not say from what company. They call from loads of different numbers They can call you to chase up a relative, that has happened to me harassment debt collection agency call non stop all hours dont answer Its SO frustrating - they never stop calling every morning and evening. Just wish there was some way of 'blocking' their number. Its harassment and should NOT be allowed. Called my work number...no answer when I picked up.
They called me from two difference numbers, one (02) number as well.
I wish I could block them but they are calling my business line and I don't have any way of blocking them as far as I know! fuk wits Can you recommend a good debt lawyer who will negotiate? does ur app work as I keep getting harassed plz block these morons just dont answer these never give up K---s....they ring all hours, night, sunday mornings...anytime...IF they were nice, I may answer..they are not "Call at 10.12pm!!!! Isn't there laws about that??"
Yes they're not allowed to call before 8am or after 9pm. But that's why they call from a Brisbane number who are an hour behind us during daylight savings.
F*****s keep calling me! I don't have any debts. I have a perfectly clean credit record so I don't know how they got the number I've had since I was 13. Anyway 😑
