    I received a text saying I owe money from a place I lived 9 years ago (university accommodation). I don't know why I'm been contacted now and they also said I will go on a default registry if I don't pay almost $3000 now(I don't recall ever owning that much rent).

    These people are scammers
    They work with countrywide austral charging you for advertising cost they did not occur! They pretend to call from the police then create a donation advertisement cost and are known as Aipol nothing to do with the government or police then when you ask for evidence countrywide Austral sell the debt to black collections and threaten you to pay via aggressive phone calls and over the top emails stating to take you court, garnish your accounts and sell you debt on the national default registry. They don’t play nice! They are manipulating scammers scaring people out of their hard earned money! May you all get closed down my ACCC or ASIC! Fraud scamming agency hurting hundreds of business owners and individuals! You should not be allowed to stay in business

    Fraud collection agency requesting payment of a debt to readers digest. They have done this before and I contacted Readers Digest at the time who of course have no record of me. Surely our Telcos can trace this number and arrange to hang the arsehole on the other end.

    Did an advert with CW austral for AIPOL mag, they totally stuffed up the add, I had already paid a deposit of like $150 I told them I was not happy and I would not pay anymore as I didnt receive a proof to confirm or I would have asked "why the fk are u missing half the main focus of the add"

    Dont pay for something you didnt actually get, the company are useless I have called emailed tried to resolve, they still want the money for something they didnt actually do so they can go get fked! I'll take them to small claims if they keep it up

    Caller: Black - Readers Digest

    These people have been texting me since June 25th about a readers digest debt. I know it’s a scam and have asked them to send me an itemised account of the debt numerous times.
    I’ve also explained to them that a debt of less of $150 can’t be listed as a default.
    I don’t understand how this company is still in operation when there are people getting arrested for not wearing a mask.
    What is going on with our law enforcement at the moment?! Looks like now is the time to break the law!!

    I keep getting text from 'BLACK' saying I have a GUTHY RENKER debt and need to pay $99.9 to avoid escalation. I have no debt at all and have no idea how I am getting these texts. It says to call 1300 139 590 but there is no way I'm going to call that number and have a conversation with this creepy scammer.

    Caller: sms from 0419 364 597 asked to call 1300 139 590 black collection services pty ltd

    Today I received the following sms from 0419 364 597: "Your TVSN Channel debt may be listed on a National Default registry. Pay $599.49 to avoid escalation (they gave a BPay biller number and a reference number) or call 1300 139 590." Number belongs to Black Collection Services Pty Ltd.
    Fortunately I do not have any debt with TVSN whom I called just to make 100% certain and they confirmed I don't have and never have had any debt with them. If these people are indeed scammers, their website should be blocked and so should their phone numbers! This is a very cruel practice as many people could panic and think they have forgotten about the so-called debt and then just pay up. I believe this is 100% a SCAM. I have just called SCAMNET on 1300 304 054 who advised this complaint be lodged via their website www.wascamnet.com.au
