They are debt collectors with a lot of options and payment plans to pay off your debts, genuinely there to help you and get rid of the debt monkey of your back. You need to speak to them and negotiate with them to get a good deal. what was the bloke's name btw ? Caller: Kamal
They wanted to get in contact with a bloke I went to primary school with... 20 years ago! Said he got my contact details online. I haven't spoken to the guy since primary school. Fair to say that I'm not going out of my way to do his job.
asking about do i know someone which i did not so i hung up
how is that disturbing? your friend samantha obviously has a debt that she is not dealing with and that is why they have to get your number to let her know that she cannot run away from this debt. lol They called me on mobile number his name was Kamal he said they got my number from social media they knew my full name and asked me to pass a message onto Samantha to call pioneer credit urgently. Very disturbing Maybe you have a debt with them ? hahaha Correction, they are not trying to take any information only passing message to their running away customers ( They're debt collectors) Actually they are not trying to get any information as you will see when they CALL you they already have your full name , date of birth , address and any other relevant details.. They are merely trying to reconnect with a customer who ran away from the BANKS with a huge DEBT. ignoring their call does not help you or them... Caller: Pioneer Credit
Do not bother with debt collection agencies scare tactics etc.
Even if you legitimately have a debt, they demand you pay way more than the original amount, when in fact they bought your debt from the original company for usually less than 1/4 of the amount owing.
Offer them a minimal amount and tell them to take it or leave it, but stop harrassing you immediately or you will report them to the police.
I just got a call from this number. this is actually a legitimate financial company trying to locate people who forgot or stopped paying their debts. if they called you, it is better to answer because it is either there is a debt in your name from the banks that has been transfered to them and now they own it or they are contacting you to get to someone you know who DOES have a debt with them so it is your best interest to help them either way getting called.
Claimed to have an urgent message for me to pass onto Mitchell Armstrong? Had my name and number - quite disturbing. Finance company supposedly - I expressed concern that they had my name and number and that I had no knowledge of the person they wanted to contact . . supposedly!
They rang and then left a voice mail message - URGENT contact.
