  1. Meryl reported Lion Finance with the number 0730173999 as Debt collection company

    I have been receiving these calls. They are an appalling company. If you are on their list, your credit rating is already black, so why bother with them. They are rude, aggressive and nasty. They harass me to give a message to an old friend of mine. Their debts are not my business and I am not doing Lion's work for them. I find it highly inappropriate to ask someone to give a message to another person - if my friend wanted me to know their problems, they would tell me.

    A scammer of the worst kind
  2. Third Party reported Lion Finance with the number 0730173999 as Debt collection company

    ACCC: "You might breach Commonwealth consumer protection laws if, in communicating with a third party, you:

    - put pressure on the debtor indirectly by involving the third party
    - embarrass or distress the debtor."

    These crooks called my landline and wanted me to drop a note into my neighbour's letterbox with a ph number 1800708124 and 11 digit reference number. They also told me the neighbour's family name that I did not know. The caller sounded sus so I did a search and the ACCC have taken this mob to court before for breach of law. Looks like they are a repeat offender.

    This just happened today. I have no idea as I have no debt old or otherwise. 'Salina' called my very ill neighbour and asked if she knew the woman in number 12 to tell me it was urgent I contact her on 1800708124 and gave her a reference# to pass on. This is such a shitty act as it is obviously a really shitty way to do a job.
  3. Real Deal reported Lion Finance with the number 0730173999 as Harassment calls

    They operate verbally over the phone because because what they propose is 100% illegal. They use hard sell techniques to get victims to agree to pay them as-much-as-possible to avoid the harassment. The victims may owe a debt but the demands aren't legal

  4. ex lion reported number 0730173999 with score 3

    Lion Finance do not use Facebook to harass people. It is completely legal for them to ask you to try and source funds either through consolidation loans, redraws, or loans of a personal nature including family. It is also completely legal for them to deny you an arrangement to pay off your debt if you refuse to provide a statement of position or if your statement of position shows that you have the funds to pay off your debt. Also, depending on the laws of your state, they can DEFINITELY tell you they can repossess your possessions - this is completely correct and legal with a court order. You do not need to sign a contract with Lion Finance for the debt to be owing to them and be in a legally binding contract - if you took the time to read your ORIGINAL loan contract you will see that they have the right to sell your debt at any time, and you will legally owe all funds borrowed + any accrued or future interest to the buyer of the debt, in this case Lion Finance. It is called a unilateral change to your contract, so those saying that you don't owe anything to them because you haven't signed a contract with them - you're wrong.

    Lion Finance will leave messages, but due to privacy laws they are unable to advise where they are calling from. If you give them your work # but you're not at your desk, and your colleague answers your phone, would you really like them to tell your colleague that they're calling from a collection agency? I don't think so. Even if it wouldn't matter to you, it is not only their company policy but the LAW, that they cannot disclose that information to anyone but the customer, and they need to confirm at least your full name but often at least 1 other point of ID, whether that be DOB or address. Also doing third party searches including looking in White Pages etc for neighbours and relatives, is again, completely LEGAL and ABOVE BOARD. You might not like it, but if you didn't avoid them then they wouldn't have to do it. Either pay your debts before they go to a collection agency, or update them when you move, change your number, etc. You're bringing hell on yourself and your family by not doing this.

    Also, bankruptcy lasts for up to 10 years, you can never become the director of a company (for the span of your life, not just the bankruptcy period), it restricts your overseas travel, stops you from doing any borrowing, you lose all of your assets including your car, property, savings etc. Bankruptcy is NOT the easy or best option when you can work through your issues - it should be viewed as the last resort that it is and not anything else.

    Co-operate with collectors and your life won't be so hard.

    "Co-operate with collectors and your life won't be so hard."

    The problem is debt collectors think they are a law unto their own. Unfortunately most debt collectors push outside the law to reach there "sales targets" and management don't care how they get the targets to line their own pockets.

    So to sit there and say pay your debts is fine, but act within the law to collect the funds.

    I don't care whether you are Australian workers or not.

  6. pised off reported number 0730173999 with score 9

    they are now using private numbers and ring every week asking for birthdate and address ...
    how do i stop them

  7. Terry reported number 0730173999 as Harassment calls

    Constant telephone calls for my wife and I. Have never dealt with anyone trading as Lion Finance, but I imagine they suck some people in. I feel sorry for those people _ must be the same ones who lose their money to the Nigerian scams

  8. Sick of illegal callers reported "Financial services" with the number 0730173999 as Debt collection company

    These scum have been repeatedly told in writing to not call, making any call an illegal harrasment call, but they continue to call.
    They will use a BS statement when asked "who are you?" They say "I'm from a financial service" instead of saying "I'm a dirt bag debt collector here to illegally harass you"
    I also believe that it's a false statement, or very near borderline when they don't provide any financial advise, which is highly illegal to state you do if you're not licenced to.

  9. Alfie reported number 0730173999 as Debt collection company

    Received call at 8.00 AM. Caller wanted to know if I knew a neighbor 5 houses down the road. Totally unprofessional. Will report this company to relevant authority.

  10. Wallie reported number 0730173999 as Debt collection company

    Asked for someone I know, told me he was an old friend looking to get in touch. Asked if I knew her? Alarm bells started to ring. So I said I couldn't help with any info, especially as I don't know her. I am sure they think I do now. hahahhaha.

  11. Bdc reported Lion Finance with the number 0730173999 as Debt collection company

    They are unscrupulous, unconscionable conduct and breach legality and privacy laws. They must be reported. Everyone should report them to the ACCC I have.

  12. Truffles99 reported number 0730173999 as Nick

    Just like all the other negative comments.
    This Scumbag [Nick] asked my Wife to pass a message to a Neighbor, with a reference number and a 1800708124 Phone number.
    How they got my number isn't known but if they ever recall, they'll get an Ear full.

  13. Scorpio reported number 0730173999 as Debt collection company

    I have received a number of calls over the past week and let them run on my answering service. No message left, so looked up their number and found several sites full of various complaints. Armed with this info, I answered their next call and told them they were 'Lyon Finance'...a debt collector...and a scammer! He denied this but wanted info on some other person. Nice try...don't call my number again! I have since reported their number to the "DO NOT CALL REGISTER."

  14. Ron reported Lion Finance with the number 0730173999 as Debt collection company

    Lion finance.. they've called my girlfriend before and when she asked what it was about the caller told her they were a consultant trying to help me get out of a financial problem. When she refused to give my number they asked her where I work and the phone number.
    They also called my MUM trying to get my work details claiming to be an old friend.. what a joke.I would've dealt with them if they never tried this crap.

  15. Kat reported number 0730173999 as Harassment calls

    Have been ringing from several numbers in several states up to 12 times a day for months. When I answered initially I told them I wanted whatever they wanted to say put in writing and posted which they refused to do. I was outside a week or so ago and my intellectually disabled son answered the phone and ended up in tears as they were so demanding and rude. They also gave my mother (who was visiting and answered the phone when I was out) personal financial details. Very untrustworthy

  16. [email protected] reported Lion Finance with the number 0730173999 as Harassment calls

    Yeah no I don't answer interstate numbers or private numbers..straight on reject call list..thanx for the info guys on a number never to answer.

  17. GTFOH reported Lion Finance with the number 0730173999 as Harassment calls

    STOP CALLING SUPPOSED FAMILY MEMBERS. GO BACK TO THE BANK CHECK YOUR LOAN DOCUMENTS THAT YOU BOUGHT FOR PENNIES ON THE DIME AND SEE THAT THE LOANS WERE PROBABLY INSURED IF THE LOANS EVEN EXIST. FUCK OFF WITH YOUR HARASSMENT

  18. Brayden reported Lion Finance with the number 0730173999 as Debt collection company

    yeah I researched this business. The ACCC are trying to shut them down. They breach privacy laws constantly, divulge your details to your work, relatives and neighbours. They recruit international students on minimum wage and they have a quote of 500 calls per 8 hour shift. Block them!

    theLION replied 2015-10-16 12:39:33
    hahahha you cant be serious right?
    1 - you are definately not monitored on calls, your actually monitored on talk time
    2 - the accc are not shutting them down
    3 - the information can only be divulged to certain parties.
    4 - Feel free to block them just tell me one thing, how do you block a blocked number? you cant.
  19. Emma reported number 0730173999 with score 9

    Called, asked to speak with me, when I informed him I was in an unsuitable place to take the call he told me someone would be hunting me down, and slammed the phone down.

  20. Terry reported Lion Finance with the number 0730173999 as Harassment calls

    I have a lot to say about this caller - Lion Finance but I am not going to waste my time typing it all out. I will say I am in great agreement with Christopher there. I can relate very well. I took it upon myself to investigate them too and it appears that their record isn't so clean. I will just say to future readers, perhaps take a look at some reportings listed by consumeraction.org.au especially before giving any details away..

  21. Christopher reported Lion Finance with the number 0730173999 as Debt collection company

    I just thought I might put it out there and write a bit of my recent call with lets say "Jen" from Lion Finance. Jen rang me up earlier today and asked if she could speak with myself - no problems with that - tell me a bit about yourself "Jen" - She informed me that she was under no obligation to provide me with "personal" information and was assigned to enlighten me on my up and coming black listing, due to a financial and property dispute with a video and DVD rental company. She, I told her was very misguided and instead took about 14 minutes of my time which I said how about I forward her an invoice for this ridicule I was obviously entertaining. Normally I wouldn't shoot the messenger, but in this case the messenger was quite half-witted.
