Parents received a call from this number claiming debt from a car accident over 1 yr ago. Details were exchange at the scene calmly. No argument. Damaged was minimal, if any. No contact has been made until now and these people claim they have been sending correspondence about this previously to an address they found on google (which was nowhere near us). What professional company uses google to find details?! And name ph and address were supplied at the scene. I call hoax/scam. 1300 074 359 belongs to recoveriescorp. Recoveriescorp is a legitimate Australian debt collection and Insurance claim recovery company that recoverers outstanding amounts and debts on behalf of Australian Government Agencies, Banks, Insurance companies, utility companies and telcos. For further information refer to www.recoveriescorp.com.au I got an SMS to "Please call MOSESE on ... this 1300 number ..." Naturally, I did not call them. The SMS came from 0408 285 308. Caller: via a letter
The letter says it acts as an insurance company to recover an accident claim and to call this number to discuss.
i received a text message from 0458 030 632 saying that i should "...call 1300 074 359, ...to finalise the matter"
indian guy wanted me to pay $1700 from an accident that occurred 5 months ago! Which i already had payed everything for and the situation was dealt with 5 months ago
scammers were asking me to confirm my details and asking if i can make a payment today...
dont trust them
Got call just by now and they have my name !
But not clearly detailed.
It is scam
Did they try to contact you again?
Caller: Got SMS from Elizaberth...note deliberate spelling error in the name.
Got SMS from 0476 857 363 last week with one different ref number to this weeks attempt from a different mobile which unfortunately i deleted.
I called 1300 074 359 and spoke to a lady who asked for my details. I told her that since her company contacted me they should have my details and can see my number on her screen
I told her that 100 per cent of the time any business from any company claiming to be debt collectors is done in writing and may follow up with telephone casll/s. I told her that I only conduct my business in writing and that this is the oly way.
I indicated that that if I was contacted again by this company I would treat it as harassment and involve the police.
Lady did not have much to say after that.
I believe that this company tries their luck on unsuspecting people years after issues have been resolved.
When i clicked on the recoveries corp website i get this warning message from my Malwarebytes antivirus software.
"Website blocked due to a Trojan"
Caller: letter with no. 1300 074 359
Received letter saying they act for comminsure insurance and wanted to recover a debt. They didn't disclose the alleged amount owed though
Never received anything from the insurance company but received letter regarding the debt. No chance to dispute the claim or to provide my insurance details. The person on the phone was really rude and told me we don't work on your behalf and wouldn't help me. You would think if you want to recover debt (which shouldn't be with them at this stage) you would try and work with the person on the phone rather than being rude. Caller: 61 427 972 656
Pay up for reduced amount etc mentions this number in text 1300 074 359 This appears to be a legit co so using that number to legitimise the contact however number call came from is Chinese writing when I Google it.
Assumption by people that the intext number is the caller. People likely to respond by clicking a return call so goes under the radar of being from Chinese contact by people without realising when they return contact. Sleezy.
Caller: 0427 972 656

scammers Same situation as above. Said they were from a Recoveriescorp. Although I have NO outstanding debts, I quoted the number they texted me to see who they were. I stupidly confirmed my name. Luckily I didn't give them any more info. Problem is that they have texted me again this time mining my Contacts App pretending to be an organisation I know. KEEP AWAY FROM THIS NUMBER!!! call from unknown no did not answer 2 mins latter message from 0458 030 332 call EMILY on 1300 074 359 and quote ref no 1170876 did not call I think is a total scam !!!!! this number was given as the number to call back from calls to my mobile with 'no caller id'. they rang me 2-3 times day everyday over 3 weeks. Total scam, am reporting to consumer affairs and police. My son received a call for this company, saying that he had a debt to pay of over $1200, but if he paid straight away it would be discounted by 50%...Nothing adds up, and what debt recovery company offers a 50% discount...!!!! Under investigation atm... Googled some scam reviews etc, something dodgy going on.. Legitimate debt recovery business
