Watch out for these people as they are not who they say they are ..........and it is a SCAM AND THEY ARE VERY DODGY !!!!!!!!!!!!!
They ring claiming they are debt collectors for a certain company you have been associated with. In fact it is a SCAM but at first looks legitimate.........until you did further and realise.
We too have been hassled about owing money to a certain company. Only thing is we have already paid this amount. This company has obviously hacked in to the companies website that we are associated with and got all our details. Be very aware of a company called "Australian Receivables Ltd" as they are not who they say they are and are SCAMMERS and very DODGY !!!!!!!!
recieved a call in american accent claiming i must quote cc1 as reference. why are these scammers not intercepted and blocked. they have tried my mobile and i ignor the 8862 no. so angry. Just received an automated phone call (from a provate number) to contact Ph: 1300 303 841 and quote reference CC1, it is in an American voice and then hangs up. It is a scam do not call them back. Australian Receivables Limited have sent text messages from about 7 different numbers - total of about 30 texts. Have not received any communication introducing the company, nor their contractual arrangement with me.
Very deceptive behaviour.
Caller: I don’t know
Asking me to forward to our accounts payable department and quote a reference number. Scam for sure
Caller: They say Ergon
I don't have an ergon account, but they say they are from Ergon and want all my details, I said no you tell me what my details are and they said well we can't help you. Gave me 1300 303 841 to call back and when I did a lady answered with such a strong accent I have no idea where she is from.
Got a call from this number..left a message with a reference code.. It is a fake American accent, Iknow because mine is real! It truly is a scam.. just trying to give Americans a bad name with their bad fake accent. Also phone number 1300 303 847
They've been texting me and calling me, even sent me an email. They say they collect for Paypal amongst other companies. I have no debt with Paypal.
I emailed them yesterday on three of their email addresses and told them I thought they were a scam, and today I returned one of their phone calls.
Call, when it connects, goes through an automatic service that does NOT identify the company. First option to select is to pay the debt, second option is to talk to your 'case manager'. I spoke with my 'case manager' "Michelle", who sounded foreign.
She knew immediately it was a 'paypal debt', and asked me for all of my details. I told her I'd like her to verify who she worked for, the company ABN and her supervisors name. She refused. So I told her I couldn't give her my information because she obviously already had it. She hung up, stating she couldn't continue the call if I refused to give her more than the dodgy reference number that was left in a text message (different to the emailed one too!).
Meanwhile, throughout it all, I'm looking at my paypal balance that verifies I do not, in fact, owe paypal a single cent. Dodgy company. This is the SECOND time they have called me demanding payment (different amounts) for a paypal debt, that when I log into paypal, doesn't exist.
IF this 'company' calls regarding a paypal issue, simply log into paypal and check your balance. If it's all ok, then it's a scammer using a legit company to try and get your money. ARL IS a real company and they do collect for paypal, but there are also scammers who are using ARL's legit name as a front. Before you do anything, do your own research. You should know your own finances well enough to figure out if this is the legit company or the scammer pretty quickly.
Left a message to quote a number, very important etc. a**holes The voice is now Australian. Woman's voice. Got a 'No caller ID' on my phone.this is the first time that they have left a message CC1 reference number.
Checked their web site and no email on their 'Contact us'page,so deleted the number and p[uit a cross thru the name.
Genuine Yank doing the voice over BUT never heard of them...I justr deleted them
Australian receivables Limited I phoned and all I got was an answer machine in an American voice Had voicemail stating that they have an important message for me and to call 1300 303 841 and quote reference CC1. Looked on there website no contact number is for this one and by looking at the previous comment we are all getting the same reference number. I have worked in collections and all client/customer will have a different ref even over multiple accounts. SCAM They rang but I didn't answer then left a message saying this is very urgent and to quote a reference number when call back I had a similar call yesterday - same automated american voice and just with reference number CC1. I have actually looked the company up online and called to Sydney number.
I asked about the message and they said yes. Have them the CC1 number and they said they cant look anything up with that and I needed to provide my account number of phone number.
Advised I dont have a number just the one left on voicemail and I am not giving them my phone number.
Asked why they dont leave a valid reference number - they couldnt tell me.
Told them I will wait for a real person to call with a real reference number
Got back from holiday to find 4 missed calls from this guy (same fake american accent, same message) on my work phone. A number that I've never used anywhere out of the work context, so there is no way a legitimate debt collector would have it. Definitely a scam Had a voicemail to call this number back and quote CC1... was very confused as they did not say it was a message for me personally just “this is a very important message for you” in an American accent.. also told me to quote CC1.. I do not owe money to anyone.. big scam!!! Message left on machine saying they were from Australian Receivables Limited and to call 1300 number and to quote CC1.
I have no debts and this is a scam. Don’t call back.
Caller- left on my answer machine stated urgent message please call 1300 303 481 quote 6D1 - I have deleted this call Hi received a call from this company yes after many tries we finally got the 1300 303 841 and quote cc1 what a load of crap we have had the robot calls on (03) 8379 0500 two ring and we get the hang up ,I guess they don't like being answered to by our robot answering machine ,tuff .
And we did get a call from some Indian fella from Mumbai (Bombay) via a (07) 5657 9013 number claiming he was from ARL receivables wanted to record me ,asked him who he was he wouldn't tell me ,so don't tell them anything when I said I wanted to record him ,he hung up ,bugger .To any one that gets these ,take your time to check them out but do not give them any thing addresses or contact details ,as they will never leave you alone ,just block them with that block app, or contact your provider and block them.
