    panthera is a debt recovery agency not spam. it is licensed with aust.credit and abn number. it has legal status to purchase debt and then acts to collect. Very open in communication and resolution solutions. Occationally but not often will offer 50% discounts on debt for settlement for small amounts. They act on utility accounts including optus telstra and alike. Just pay your debts or be reported on your credit file and may include interest! I just saved 400$ on a bill i totally forgot about not nad for 10 mins of email.

    No they cant but they do it all the time...

    They are always one thing, or another...my friends told me that a garbage from COASTAL MERCANTILE herewith in Melb...connected to PANTHERA FINANCES turned up all dressed up in TOLLS uniforms, with equally TOLLS' parcel with the logo in them, and he passed himself as the TOLLS' official with a real and serious message for my friend...then he started to threaten her with legal action...that they would acquire a warrant for her arrest...and she in turn a QC and not even the intended victim told him where to go and that she would really appreciate it cause she was suing them for over fifty millions dollars..let's see she stated.: FRAUD...IDENTITY THEFT...HARRASSMENT, THREATS, MENACES...TRESPASSING THE GATE WITHOUT ANY AUTHORITY, IMPERSONATING A TOLLS' OFFICIAL, DRESSED UP IN TOLLS' GARMENTS OR UNIFORMS, AND BEARING THE PARCEL WITH THE TOLLS' LOGO....now these are REALLY SERIOUS CRIMES...VIOLATION OF ONE'S CONDUCT...IMPERSONATIONS, AND ALSO FALSE PRETENSES...IDENTITIES THEFT, FRAUDSTERS by faking one's signatures...by copying it and pasting in on the DECLARATIONS FORMS making them OFFICIAL...however,,,this is an AGGRAVATION OF CRIMINAL OFFENCES...by signing someone's signature ON A DECLARATION FORM and having their own PANTHERA'S employees witnessing the signature is REALLY A FORM OF CRIMINAL OFFENCE THAT WARRANTS TEN YEARS in jail. MY FRIENDS' IDENTITY WAS STOLEN and we already know who the culprit is...but we are waiting for these scumsbags to issue any thing from Courts orders to whatever they think is UNLAWFUL...which they will never do it...cause they know that they arent going to win in any sort of courts...you read this right PANTHERA'S SCUM BAGS...

    we need to take ACTIONS...

    I thought that in Canberra and Melb..were only three years.

    and besides there is nothing to acknowledge...cause we've found out that there is no LEGALITY WHATSOEVER in our debts...we've rang over here and there...and finally all of us went to the police station...and even the police are aware of PANTHERA'S dirty collection and their ways of imposing their ways on good citizens..

    More over now they are even pretending to be this official and the other..to gain access and force you to acknowledge them...besides no one signed anything only them...their own employees...and so everything that they'd do is fake....they are FRAUDSTERS and IDENTITIES THEFT...cause we know...they are now PASSING THEMSELVES AS OFFICIALS FROM THIS THING AND THE OTHER...watch out for COASTAL MERCANTILES' agents...but JUSTICE can be done if you report this case to the Police or Federal Police...there are justice and you can even get an ADO against them.

    hi,

    was very interested in your subject.

    To let you know more we are adding FRAUD/IDENTITY THEFT/IMPOSITIONS/ THREATS/ MENACES/TRESPASSERS/TRESPASSING PEOPLE'S HOUSEHOLDS/ and of late you will not believe it.: FALSE PRETENSES...ABUSE OF POWER...but more to it...PASSING THEMSELVES AS TOLLS' OFFICIALS WITH TOLLS' PARCELS...to INVADE PEOPLES PRIVACIES WITH FAKED LEGAL PAPERWORK.

    SO WE ARE WARNING EVERYBODY...please anyone that knocks at your door saying that there is parcel for them from whichever agency...dont open the door and CALL THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY...these have already been reported to the local police.

    so we are very happy to add another complaint against these ABUSERS/FRAUDSTERS/IDENTITIES THEFT AGENCIES...oh by the way OUR INVESTIGATION FOUND OUT THAT YOUR SIGNATURES HAVE BEEN POSTED AND COPIED ONTO THEIR CERTIFICATES OF DECLARATION in which you all have stated that you are indebted to PANTHERA and will repay all the money you do owe....NOTHING IS LEGAL AND OFFICIAL...cause the signatures ARE VOID...and they cant prove that you signed...cause made/signed in front of the PANTHERA'S PERSONNEL...and their employees...and the VICTIMS dont know anything about it...dont acknowledge anything coming from them...cause THERE IS NOTHING TO ACKNOWLEDGE AT ALL..CAUSE THE MAIN THING IS THAT FOR A PROXY TO BE DONE OR AN AFFIDAVIT IT NEEDS TO HAVE SIX PEOPLE AND THE LAWYER TO TESTIFY IT...BOTH LAWYERS...AND FOUR WITNESSES..and if this is not possible TO MAKE IT LEGAL AND OFFICIAL...then it shall be SIGNED all four witnesses in the Court's house and the REGISTRAR will signed and stamp it...and he also will arrange another two witnesses to sign and acknowledge, the time, date and the stamp...SO NONE OF YOU DO HAVE ANYTHING TO FEAR...and more over...YOUR IDENTITY was illegally obtained and PANTHERA'S are CULPABLE AND GUILTY OF SUCH DEEDS.

    Thank you, and shall keep you all posted.

    To let you know further, a friend of mine have been chased, harrassed, threatened, menaced, bombarded with telephone calls, receiving their visits at all odd hours of the days and the nights, weekly or on daily basis...she has gone to the police and states that all of you are in the right process of doing this...remember it is your identity that they have stolen...PLEASE LET'S GO..just let us know in here and we will all take action.

    Panthera is chasing me for a debt that l have paid. I was contacted by another debt collection agency, made arrangements for an amount, paid that amount, received a letter saying the settlement is finalised. From what l can gather Panthera bought my old debt (that l repaid) and now want me to pay them money. Can they do this?
    Yes l have my letter and my receipts as l have OCD and keep everything in my perfect filing cabinet.
    What should l do?

    They also have been harassing me and now they are sending me a threat letter wanting to send me to court, I'm getting legal help no one should feel like they will go to court over something like this they didn't even provide with the correct documents that was requested with dates and amounts times of any debt or payment made originally.
    By the way panthera whatever you guys are named by law we can't go jail for this so I ain't scared I feel sorry for companies like this you don't have a heart or conscious pure evil

    I received a collection notice today for nearly $400 for an Alinta Gas bill in W.A. Thing is, we live in an area where we are on BOTTLE GAS and definitely not handled by Alinta Gas. Maybe you should do your homework first as I DO NOT intend to pay an account I dont owe. SCAMMERS

    I have a recycled number. "Thanks Telstra" Perhaps the previous owner had a debt, (unknown) Anyway I have loaded an app called " Should I answer" It works, Negative rated numbers don't work. Cant hear you call Panthera Finance nor anyone else with a negative rating. Allows you to make comments and block unwanted calls. Peace at last.

    These people are thugs. The cockroaches at this company have been harassing me for over a year. I keep telling them that they have the wrong number/person and they say they will take my number off the list and then call me again anyway. This morning I got another call a 6.30am. They are known as State Merchantile/Panthera Finance and are debt collectors. Mathew and James Hough are the 2 scumbags in charge. (The Dodgy Brothers reborn) and they are training their wives and kids to be scumbags as well. A real scumbag family run business. I had to speak to 3 people before I found one that would tell me the name of the company they were calling from. Surely they can find a better way to make a living. Gutter Dwellers! If they call you don't hang up on them, just put the phone down and walk away. Its their money paying for the call.

    no they are not LEGIT...the Consumer Affairs have been doing some research against them..and even though it says PANTHERA FINANCE DEBT RECOVERY is not the real deal...they have multiple agencies connected to this one but PANTHERA is not LEGIT...we are referring this case to the authorities too...cause once they get your name/phone no..they dont care if you owe anything or not...they will keep on coming...why dont all of us join together and take them on LEGALLY AND OFFICIALLY IN COURT....all talk about it over here is not going to do anything unless ACTION is being taken...count on me straight ahead...cause they are trying to get from me over two hundred thousand dollars...I've ignored them and they've sent me countless legal letters threatening legal action...it has been more than three years and even more...therefore over here in Melb...whatever they do is not legal...it was on September 2013...now is 2017....over one year and more...no acknowledgement from my side too...
    anyone thinking in legal action against them...we do have over one hundred and fifty people taking on them and it has been already in tv's news...so take charge...
