Caller: Debt collectors
Hey Bob, looks like these guys are calling the next door neighbor of people who owe money....
Bob do you work for a merc agent?
This company buys a debt at a discount rate then calls repeatedly over a short space of time - yes they do give up.
If you can be bothered talking to them - when they ask to speak to ...Jon Smith just say no they’ve passed away or he’s in jail having been caught making sweet sweet love to a goat with 2 decomposing bodies near by - ask them to note it in system because u find these type of calls quite traumatic...you can say this in a voice that sounds like u r crying or pissed off....or just search the number on this awes site and block the dikheads on your phone
consistent calls from them looking for someone I have never heard of These pricks rang my neighbour to give me a message because they were to lazy to send a letter lowlife scum And all the lady could say was too bad very poor customer service I get clusters of calls from this company for a man I've never heard of, whose name I can't even spell. First time I got their 5 or so messages in a week, I called back to tell them my number had nothing to do with the man. The calls stopped for a few months and now we're back to up to 3 messages A DAY. Debt collection is all well and good but do it intelligently and professionally - don't randomly spam strangers to meet KPIs! Contacting my 10 year old son I have rang and explained but sill getting calls? Contacti g our childs number when i try and message back number does not allow call. Police need to investigate these people. Repeatedly calls me on various numbers, rarely speak, ask for someone sometimes-it is not me, and when I say I am not that person they try to ask me about that person anyway??? I get that people are trying to collect debts, but if you are told you have the wrong number there should be some way of reporting them to make them stop harassing the wrong person! Caller: 30173000
Rings multiple times a day. Hangs up when phone call is answered.
ring the number back and get a recording optus wishes to advise that the number you have called is disconnected and a whole heap of numbers after These idiots called and tried to ask my name, which they got wrong. I told them its not me and they hung up. Put my phone on private and tried to ring back. No company name on their answering machine. HOW is this group still operating their scam business after several years!!?? should anyone take advice from a guy calling himself hot male from brisbane? These people from "Collection House" keep ringing me, claiming I was involved in a car accident on Grange Road (Adelaide) last September with their "client". I don't EVER drive down that road, nor was I in any car accident. In fact, I catch public transport most days. And how they know my name and number is beyond me when I have never even met said "client", let alone gave them my name and contact details. All I have to say is these bastards are dodgy, fishing for personal info most likely. Rang them back and their answering machine doesn't even reveal their company name. Getting the cops to check them out for me. Same as TMC - this guy Dave asks about my neighbour across the road and will I deliver a message to her? He tells me it is personal business. WTF??? And pull your head in, Bill. This was an unsolicited call to me about my unknown neighbour. This Dave could always arrive & knock on her door, surely? If he had my name & address, he would have FULL info on her.......... If you don't like getting calls from debt colletors pay your bills tool!
Just an FYI for you, if you don't talk to them to sort it out what do you think they will do next, just forget about it??? don't think so, you will find yourself paying more.
I find it funny that people complain about getting heaps of calls from debt collectors when all they need to do is just answer one of the calls and sort out the debt the calls stop.
These scum have used a reverse phone search by street to get my number to ask me questions about my neighbour that owes them money. This is WRONG and my next stop is ACCC where I will make a full complaint. Maggots. This number has been ringing my mobile & continually hanging up if they don't reach me. They finally left a message this time with a reference # and I rung them back only to have them ask me to verify my identity with personal information. I refused to give them any id & they asked me if I had ever lived in Rockhampton (QLD) and I haven't, so they ended the call. I still have no idea what it was about. these people nothing better to do just trying same name people that they are looking for. they have no ideas at all but annoy you and just trying their luck to find the right person they are looking for. I don't owe them a thing.They claim I owe them ~$1700 for their client.They have sent me so many letters and the name at the bottom changes every time, went from desk manager, to area manager, to region manager, to collections manager, to some other manager, and now its back to the desk manager again!the icing on the cake, they sent me a letter at the end of July offering me a reduced settlement (note, they OFFERED me it) which was swiftly IGNORED, then they sent me another letter which wasn't in follow up to the previous, just to the matter, and the amount was back up to the original.Then the next letter they send is ANOTHER reduced settlement, but the amount was $0.00 due to a printing error and another letter was received rectifying and advising of the error, with the proper reduced settlement on it. IGNORED.Then the next letter was back to the original amount.in every single one of these letters, threats have been made about dates and what happens after said date.As I have not entered into any agreements, any contract or any arrangements with this commercial agency, I owe them nothing, have no liabilities tied to them and am in no debt to them, nor do I have any obligation to act in any way!Read the letters people! Received one this afternoon at 3.38pm. As soon as I said my name, they hung up Collection House purchase debt from banks and other companies and then find the people who owe the money and establish payment terms. Jones King is a subsidiary of Collection House, the legal department who can issue you with court orders, etc. depending on how much is owed.At the end of the day its YOUR debt and you are responsibly for paying it and they will not give up. lol. Yes, it is Collection House limited, and no, they don't pay for information, it can be found quickly and easily....you really think these companies are gunna start paying more money for numbers they aren't even sure are correct. Wise up, there is no such thing as privacy, if you think there is your an ignorant fool. LOLthird party debt collectors have no legal stand, you played straight into their hands!
