(edit) would apply for a job like that. They say it is on a commision basis. You can just imagine the (edit)in the training room.

 

The adverts are in the local South-east/London newspapers.

 

Anybody got any good one-liners in case they come knocking on my door?

 

Someone should apply on the sly and reveal their (probably illegal) training methods.

...Anybody got any good one-liners in case they come knocking on my door?...
Errrm...

Come in......Would U like a cup of tea??...:confused:

...lol...:D

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

Blessed is he who in the name of charity and goodwill shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children.

And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers.

And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

(Jules Winnfield)

Found a simalar job ad at the local job centre plus.

It was on one of those machines that likes to print out minimum wage jobs with vague descriptions on school style toilet paper.

 

One job I found was for a doorstep debt collector, so I printed it out and checked the phone number when I returened home. And sure enough it was for Moorcroft.

 

Quite ironic that a debt collector would be advertising somewhere unemployed peeps would be searching for a job.

 

I'm seriously considering applying, then when I get my list of people to call on, I'll point them in the direcion of the Consumer Action Group for some real help with their debt problems. :D

 

I have a deep hatred of anything Moorcroft.

They keep sending me threats of bailiffs etc, even though they know full well one account is in dispute and the other has been wating for a CCA for the last 6 weeks. Time for a few official complaints I think.

These are video links to show how I deal with Debt Collectors.

The advert is in yesterdays London Evening Standard and runs as follows

 

DO YOU WISH TO SUPPLEMENT YOUR INCOME?? ONE OF THE UK'S LEADSING DEBT RECOVERY COMPANIES REQUIRE COLLECTORS TO MAKE REGULAR CASH COLLECTIONS IN YOUR LOCAL AREA ON A SELF-EMPLOYED BASIS. REMUNERATION IS BY WAY OF A GOOD COMMISSION RATE PAYABLE WEEKLY. ALL YOU NEED IS A CAR, A TELEPHONE AND A FEW SPARE HOURS PER WEEK. INTERESTED?? 0161 477 1166 FOR DETAILS.

 

Anyone had a visit from these 'collectors' (raging steriod freaks probably). Why would anyone had over cash to these people? Unbelievable?

Have had one here - twice - completely incompetent!

 

First time he was trying to get money against a Barclaycard debt, and said

 

"Why don't you pay me like xxxxxx does two doors down. She owes me £xxxxx for various debts and gives me £10 a week" :eek:

 

Reported him to his office and said that under no circumstances would I deal with him and have my business discussed all around the neighbourhood. Didn't see him again for about 4 years and when I opened the door he said "Ah yes, I thought I'd been here before. Not to worry"

 

Thing is that every so often I get an audit letter from Moorcroft asking me to verify the amount of money paid to their collector (even though I have never paid him a penny) so I make something up and send it back to them. Surprised he hasn't been sacked yet for having his fingers in the till!

I would rather flip burgers in Mc Ds than work for any DCA

Nothing wrong with working for Mc Ds! I could be biased because that's where I work! Bet you didn't know that they pay above minimum wage. I probably earn more there than I would working for a DCA!

Of course if its the truth it wouldnt be libellous.

 

Reminds me of a story about Winston Churchill who famously said of his fellow MPs '' Half the people in this house are idiots'' When asked by the speaker to withdraw his remarks Mr Churchill replied '' I withdraw my remarks, half the people in the house are not idiots''

No no You lot - here's a great opportunity to screw em

 

Take the job & every debtor you visit tell them, after hearing their sad story of course, that the debt is cancelled forthwith. Remember your an employee of the company & as your acting within the scope of your job they have to honour it. - boom boom

 

Do it - even for 1 day the enjoyment would be enormous
