Lucas Credit Services
DCAs That Chase Financial Debts:
Lucas Credit Services Ltd was incorporated in 2010 and their launch followed in 2011. This is very much a Lewis Group revival noting the Directors Nicola Dyer and Nick Ramsden who had each worked there right from the 80s up to 2011. The founder (Dr Roger Lucas) also worked at Lewis and was notably the president of the CSA for a few years. That collection agency has of course now ceased trading. Hoist Finance had acquired and then opted to fuse it within their existing operations. LCS has less than 50 employees, but despite being small they have grown very quickly in the short time that they have been in business.

Hoist Finance UK (Hoist Portfolio Holding 2 Limited)
DCAs That Chase Financial Debts:
There has been a high volume of web searches via Google for the term Hoist Portfolio Holding 2 Limited. In recent years, forums have been littered with complaints and questions regarding this firm, especially across 2016. Just what is the reason being this surge in interest and who is the company itself? This is what we’ll be looking at here. The actual entity (FCA #652220) is no longer active and so the search spike should drop across 2017. Hoist Finance UK is however active, but they just purchase accounts and pass these on to Robinson Way. When those forum posts were mounting up, there was confusion on who to contact and there was no website to follow up.
