    Very nice work. I'll take the home addresses and DOB's from these SOB's if you still have them.
    In return, I promise to let you know the details and outcome of my efforts but not their origin.

    There should be more people like us!

    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...

    it has been more than and over one hundred and fifty complaints against them...

    they wont leave you alone with phone calls, threatening letters....my friend has been receiving DEad PHONE CALLS asking her to ring (07) 3535 9040 and when he rings automatically he owes more than it is. in this bank..he goes to pick up the records...believing in what these scumbags say and finds out that this bank not only has any records of his he just cant remember when was the last time he had any account in there...previously he has been sent some accounts that Panthera claims about it and again he has never had anything to do with them..but the phone calls kept on coming and harrassment and hassling calls and then threatening my friend that they were going to court...or whatever...he found out that the lawyer is nothing but a fraud.

    Can we get rid of these

    If Panthera Finance/State Mercantile choose to purchase outstanding debts from creditors at minimal cost then CONGRATULATIONS to them, well done. If they can't recover the monies then tough sh*t for them that's business. Just ignore them they are just very rich low life scumbag BOTTOM FEEDERS.

    YES...so how is it in Melb? they reckonned that the debt started in 2012...by now should be finalised cause it is only for three years...over here in Melb...in somewhere is five years..and in Melb..is three years alongside ACT...right? No debt has been incurred but Panthera's has been on my backside and now they decided to take on me through Legal action...but I aint scared...cause they have nothing on me...but just for the record wanted to know if there was something akin to this...wouldnt it be only for three years?

    I am dealing with them for the past five years...out of the blues I received demands to pay up to forty and now sixty two thousand dollars owed to them via Commonwealth and that Commonwealth bank had sold my debts and then they had this fraudulent paperwork with my signature in them...I asked both the Commonwealth bank to issue me with the relevant paperwork of my debt and they said that the Panthera has them...since it was not working now they are threatening me with legal action over something that I had nothing to do with it...moreover if I had a debt with Commonwealth Bank the contract is between the two of us.....and if the debt incurred in 2012..by now is over three years...and all debt cannot be reinforced..can anyone let me know my rights? Lastly but not the least they the Panthera's sent me last year two bills for the Origins Electricity and Gas bills which I had nothing to do with them...Contacted Lumo Energies and they in turn confirmed that I have had nothing to do with the Origins... but the letters of demand kept on coming..now let me know if there was debt even incurred in 2013 over here in Melb...Vic...after three years it is not enforceable so how now it becomes a legal one and more so if they do not have any records against me only one piece of paperwork with my faked signature on them...can anyone let me know about my rights and if this IS STILL ENFORCEABLE?

    Panthera Finance claiming to be contacting me regarding an Optus account. I spoke to Optus directly and they confirmed Panthera Finance is a scam. Don't speak to these people.
