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.
This Bradford-based DCA has been chasing up arrears in the markets of financial, telecoms and utilities. It is more likely that a financial account will be involved though. It is common to see the name Vanquis name cropping up a lot plus also the instalment lender MyJar (both recent and for old TxtLoan debts). A few other creditors of note are BT and Sky. There has also been a common affiliation with Lowell. We’d assume that they are chasing up Lowell’s junk debts. LCS are not purchasing accounts. They just chase, but they do extend to court action. There was an amusing screenshot posted of a collection letter on the GetOutofDebtFree forum.
This had an oversized print of a 30% discount offer when paid within 14 days. This type of correspondence is usually a sign that they aren’t confident that they’ll see a dime!
