    I actually owe the money reported Lowell with the number ‎08442843421 as Debt collection company

    7/24/14, 3:49 PM

    Seems like I'm the only person on here that actually does have a debt with these guys. They bought my debt from Vodafone after they defaulted on my contract but refused to release me from it, I told them to do one and took the credit rating hit. They do call at all hours but I can program my phone to ring silently for certain numbers, it took a while to get all their different numbers but now I don't hear a thing from them and in no time at all it will be wiped from my rating, Vodafone and Lowell can swivel, corporate scum.

    well done mate, i have similar to yourself and they call at night, i will invest in a better phone and do the same, creepy little money grabbing monkeys.
    AnzenB replied 1/30/15, 1:27 PM
    I owe Lowell money too & like yourself they bought a debt from Vodafone & a couple of others I owed over the years. So the likelihood of this being lowell is yes ! They phone me 4 times a day everyday, I just don't answer at the min as I cant afford to pay anything. I have to go insolvent unfortunately!

    This is actually an sms message number for talk talk. I've got a coupe calls from them lately as I'm taking out business broadband with them and this is the number they ring me from.
    Don't where the rest of you are getting debt collectors from??
    crotchgoblin replied 11/19/16, 11:20 AM
    its a call/text service used by companies all over - problem is that lowell got in by subscribing & have ruined the companies business by harrassing people
    YES your dentist will have subscribed especially if you are NHS
    YES the water companies use it,Lowell gave it a bad rep that it will not get back

    The above number called but a voice / text message was left stating that 03443462020 called, it was South West Water to warn of a burst pipe in the area and information about this. The number that appeared on the phone was 08442843421 though.

Pathetic 00000000000 is their text number for a reputable business..

    GENUINE call, from a store advising me that "the item I ordered is now in the store and available for collection".

    This text-to-speech service is obviously used by many companies, therefore unfortunately it is going to be difficult to separate genuine callers from spam/sales calls.

    Why Ofcom can't stop this kind of nuisance calling is a mystery to me. Ineffective regulation.

    Lowells - notorious and shady debt collection agency you should on no account speak to by telephone, and if they call you, hang up.

    If you have a call blocker or a call filtering system (Truecall's a good one), then make sure these numbers are entered, and then they'll never get through to you.

    01153 308600
    0845 309416
    01153 308600
    0844 8444716
    01133 086 000
    07837 649 560
    07891 672 091
    07837 641 866
    07837 671 293

    Also, this company is notoriously bad at dealing with general enquiries or complaints, so if you have such a complaint you do need to discuss with them, do it by email, and do it from a free hotmail account (NO WAY should you se your normal everyday email address).

    If you have to send them an email, then make sure every one of the addresses on the list below is copied in - they'll be much more inclined to pick your enquiry up and deal with it properly, especially if you don't buy their excuses, fob-offs and attempts to ignore your enquiry (all of which they will try to do, if there's no money in it for them!).

    Please note that these email addresses have been included SOLELY to help you reach them at your own convenience and on your own terms and not theirs - they are NOT here to be abused, ie. isnged up to religious sites, porn sites, book sites, etc.

    Plus, it really irritates them when they get more emails to trawl through than they need to - so that's a plus in itself.

    I totally agree with you, they use so many different numbers, landline and mobile. I never answer, but when I get a new one, I just check it on here. They buy debts off other companies, and I was told by a solicitor, that once the company sells the debt you are no longer responsible for it. It is then Lowells debt and you are under no obligation to pay it, as it no longer belongs to the company you originally had the debt with. When Lowells and other debt collecting firms buy debts they do it to make money. So why line their pockets.

    Please could you please advise me is Lowell Group and Lowell financial ltd the same people.Lowell Group says it from Leeds and Lowell Financial reckons its from Nottingham, the latter of the two has been registered with numerous other company names with Companies House I had an email from them asking me to confirm my date of birth and full address before they could assist me with the email I sent to them regarding money they chasing from me.

    I was receiving calls from these idiots for a person who did not live at my address, I told them many times but they never listen. Now when they call I turn the Table on them by pretending I am a debt collector and I am calling them to recover a debt they owe, the response was hilarious. They have not called me anymore. This works with Indian Tele sales to, you just have to tell them you have an amazing offer for them but don't let them get a word in, keep telling them about your amazing offer and they will hang up and never call again.

    I was called today by this company and found out who they were (on here). I promptly phoned their 0845 number and requested that they remove me from their database. I explained that I had caller preference and threatened to report them to Ofcom. The interesting thing is that they asked me if I knew a certain person (who they mentioned by name). This person was clearly the person they were chasing for the debt but I had never heard of her. They state on their website that they are they work ethically, honestly, and with transparency. That is clearly complete and utter bull. I was assured that they would take my number of their database (that remains to be seen). How ethical is it to mention a person with debt by name to a third party? It isn't. How transparent is it to call someone and not state who you are? It isn't. How honest is it to call people in the hoipe of entrapping them? It isn't.

    These debt collecting agencies are often looking for a debtor and all they have to go on is a name. So they compile a list of people with the same name and harass them into giving enough personal info to cross them off their list. Report them to the ICO. Don't call them back or give them want they want because you'll just be helping them stay in business.

    They keep calling me from different numbers, but I block them. They keep leaving an automated computer voicemail. Almost every day they call for a debt that is over 7 years old.

    after 6yrs your debt is statute barred so they cant collebt the debt unless you have made a payment to them within those 6 yrs..so my advice is just to ignore them

    I ignore all calls coming into my landline number until the caller speaks.

    If no one speaks within a few seconds, I assume that I've been called by an autodialler which is activated by the sound of my voice, and because I've remained silent.... nothing happens, or I hang up.

    I then dial 1471 for the number and Google it.

    I never call any numbers they've left for me to call. If they are too lazy to make any effort to contact me themselves.... then their call can't be that important!
