you are correct and I think Imogen is one of them. The amount of people on the defense..'these dodgy people are trying to contact me..I don't owe the money..they're breaking the law by asking for my private information..I was sent a letter but it doesn't tell me what it was for..' Come off it guys..you all know it's a collections agency, they're contacting you because you either owe money, you are a relative or next of kin to someone who owes money or you perhaps own a recycled phone number or you live at an address that the person in question used to have. It's not that big of a deal, no you can't go to the police because they won't do anything because it's not a crime..yes you're within your rights to seek legal advise or speak to the ombudsman but if you owe money to a company or they've purchased your contract and you try to dispute it by seeking legal advice or by making complaints to get out of liability you're just prolonging the process and quite honestly you're going to embarrass yourself - these businesses are legitimate and they know their rights as well as yours...if you are the person they are trying to contact then the company is within their rights to ask for your details to ensure you're the intended person so they're not giving all your personal info to any tom, d*ck or Harry..I'm sure you wouldn't like people knowing you have an outstanding financial obligation hence the secrecy..it's to protect you. And if they have the wrong person, tell them so and they'll move on, no harm done. If you have a debt and you avoid it, it'll catch up with you and it will be an inconvenience so just deal with it rather than facing a big fat default on your credit file or even worse legal action where your wages or bank could be garnished without notice, a process server could turn up to your home or place of employment, a sheriff could turn up to tag your goods of value to sell at auction to recover moneys owed, a caveat could be placed on your property/land title or (not likely but still possible) you could be forced into bankruptcy and lose everything, even your job prospects could be affected by this. It's quite serious, don't let the molehill turn into a mountain! Citi is using Acceleon to harass you. Tell them to take you off your list (03) 9670 9797 Mother in law just got a letter she took it to the police and they said it was a scam. Don't even call them. I have been receiving calls from a blocked number for a week but when I answer it hangs up after 3 seconds. I contacted Telstra about it and they have put a tracking on it for the next month. Once they have called me again 3 times in a week they will send a warning out. It's a free service for anyone having the same experience. This is the number 1800 805 996 and its a free call. I just received a message from probe to say call them urgently I assume it is the same people. First it started with a text saying to contact Mendelsons Lawyers urgently on 1300 872 495 and quote a reference number. This has progressed to phone calls from different numbers, the caller wont tell me what their calls are about until i give them my info. which i don't give, I'm getting sick of messages and or phone calls from these pricks, how can i stop this? Has anyone else experiencing this? I once worked for these pricks, (Mendelsons -Prushka) they are dodgy debt collectors scum bottom feeders, and the harassment I saw them dish out to alledged debtors was beyond belief. Please don't pay them a cent! This JeffreyMendelson sent again letter 2 times in one month asking to pay our Citibank credit debt in full payment but I now it is scam I'm sick of this people I got a letter from Geoffrey Mandelson saying that they are collecting debt on behalf of Simply Energy but I suspect this might be identity theft as they also send the same letter to another person with the same address, who has never been here or stayed here. As far as I am concerned, I paid all my bills but since this is a rented property, it might have been from the person before. Upon consultation with the person who lived here before ( a friend who I took the lease from) she showed me ALL her bills and has ALWAYS paid her bills.
Not sure what to do here. I tried ringing them but no answer. Does anyone have any similar situation?
Private numbers late at night, I picked up once to have no one answer me, just silence, then 2 minutes later a new Probe voicemail popped up. Over and over. The exact same automated message to ring them, over and over. I know I had an outstanding bill with tolling for about $25 which I have just paid but this stupid probe group keeps leaving messages, and also automatic texts that I cannot text reply too. I read somewhere (could be wrong) that the technique they are using requires YOU to call THEM by choice and therefore terminates any claim of harrassment.
I suppose they should consider themselves lucky that I won't ring and they won't actually speak when I answer their calls, because by now they would recieve such a mouthful from me that their hearing would be permanently affected.
Terribly managed company. Deal with the organisation you owe funds to, not these clowns. I'll be ringing up the organisation I paid my bill too again and enquiring if they send unpaid contracts to Probe, and then explaining the terrible experience I've had.
Add another one to this list. I've now received 4 letters from the same ratbag scammers. The latest one threatens legal action. No incident or details are referred to in any of the letters. They just demand payent. Caller: Mendelson lawyers
aggressive unprofessional , they work on estimates of funds owed, they cant get facts right .
These people are scammers, no doubt. I owed 45.00 and they charged me 64.00 in fees, that is wrong Caller: Mendelson's Lawyers
If these people call me again, I'm going to get a lawyer onto them.
This is the probe group. They said that i oweTelstra money. that number is the number they gave me is for telstra head office.
Nothing makes sense.
Caller: Mendelson Lawyers
I keep getting calls and messages to call back Mendelsons Lawyers from 0439 535 996. Lucky my Samsung identifies it as a spam and comes as Potential Fraud when I have an incoming call. I don't owe money to anyone, nut sure why I am getting these calls.
Any idea how to get them blocked?
Andrew from mendolsen lawyers is a scammer and liar who makes up fake bills report these lawyers to the legal commissioner office so they won’t be allowed to renew there license to practise for harassing people over fake bills they make up
Mendolsens lawyers are scammers made up fake bills Andrew stalks harassed and made up a fake bill report these lawyers to the legal commissioner office so they don’t get there license renewal and they can’t practise its fraud and criminal what they continuously do I think the real scam here is Simply Energy. They have tried this on me. tried to get the bill paid twice. Eventually regardless of what I wrote we got to the day they were going to cut off my energy supply. I was more than angry and got on to the Energy and Water Ombudsman and complained. I then told Simply Energy what I had done. Their response was priceless. Asked why I did that and not talked to them first and get it all sorted. I now have a new supplier.
