I pulled out before signing any contract with them after they asked for my personal identification. I don’t care how official they look, I don’t make a habit of giving up my ID so easily, especially to a company with completely unverifiable facts and statistics. Half the links on their site are either dead, or they lead to barely put together flashy sites that look suspiciously similar in design to the Money Catch homepage.

Despite advertising a relatively large team of professionals, my attempts to speak directly to anyone other than the sales rep who called me were rudely rebuffed. Doesn’t take a genius to realize that there wasn’t anyone else on hand. If you want my advice, I’d say stay the hell away from Money Catch because they aren’t half as flashy as they look first glance and the service gets progressively worse as you start to ask more and more questions.

#1 UPDATE Employee

To all customers, consumers and persons who are interested in the business operated by Money Catch.

AUTHOR: Money Catch - (Australia)

We don't ask for personal identification before signing an agreement with us, so the post does not make sense.  If a client does not want to supply us with any identification they don't have to! 

Regarding links on our site, facts and stats, we are not sure what this refers to? 

It does not sound like you spoke to one of our staff as we don't have Sales Reps, all our staff identify who they are in calls are friendly and our phones are answered by a team with all calls monitored and recorded.  (Maybe you can tell us who you spoke to on the phone and what day this was, so we can assess this phone call)?  We don't have a Bella in the system?

We also have several people on hand to speak to customers at all times.  We give our potential clients all the details they require on the unclaimed money owing to them as we are open and transparent.

To all customers, consumers and persons who are interested in the business operated by Money Catch.

Money Catch has been the subject of a significant amount of trolling during recent times. Such trolling making totally false, unmaintainable and incorrect accusations in relation to the business carried on by Money Catch. The allegations are scurrilous and without any foundation.

Money Catch is a business that has been operating with integrity and impunity since 2006 and in an honest and ethical manner.

Money Catch has been operating since 2006 involved with the recovery of unclaimed money, cyber investigations, scam investigations and skip tracing. Money Catch operates within and adheres to telecommunications (Telemarketing and Research Calls Industry Standards) 2017 and every telephone number is run through the Australian “Do Not Call Register” as required by Law.

When Money Catch locates or ascertains a source of unclaimed money owing to their potential clients, those clients are advised and it is entirely the client’s choice if they wish to use Money Catch’s service or to affect the claim themselves. Should the client elect to affect the claim themselves then they are provided with the necessary information to pursue the claim for their own unclaimed money? The benefit to them of using the Money Catch service is that a professional service can carry out all the inquiries, investigations and provide all necessary information in a more efficient and timely manner.

Money Catch is Australia’s leading unclaimed money professional and accesses information that is not easily or freely available in relation to unclaimed money therefore providing a significant service to the clients who choose to use that service and allowing a greater number of people to acquire unclaimed monies that are owing to them than what other organisations are able to do. The access to additional sources of unclaimed money is only a benefit to clients.

Money Catch does not stalk people and as set out, adheres to Industry Standards including the Telecommunication Standards set out above, ACCC Debt Collection Guide and the “Do Not Call Register”.Full and complete information and disclosure are made by Money Catch as part of the relationship with clients and that is provided before any contract is entered into and the client has an absolutely free choice if they wish to deal with Money Catch or not.

The fees that are charged by Money Catch are applicable to the work performed for the investigation and support and the levels of fees that have been set out by unknown persons who are trolling the website are simply incorrect and will not be maintainable. Money Catch’s fees are disclosed to all prospective clients and customers before any work is performed and again, that client or customer can decline to engage the services of Money Catch.

In accordance with proper procedures and Australian Law, Money Catch is required and does hold a Master CAPI Licence and that Licence requires compliance with Ethics and Standards by all holders and Money Catch does comply with those Standards. Obtaining the Master CAPI Licence requires significant study and also a thorough investigation of the Licence Holder – which cannot reveal any criminal or Police record or any financial dealings that have led to bankruptcy in the past. Money Catch has always passed the statutory inquiries that are made by the Licensing Authorities and continue to hold and operate under the appropriate Licences because they have passed and continue to pass all requirements.

Confirmation of the above matters can be confirmed by inquiry through the appropriate websites and Government Authorities – particularly through the NSW Police or Security Licensing & Enforcement Directorate (SLED).

Money Catch does not know or understand the basis of the totally incorrect and scurrilous allegations that are being made about them. Money Catch can confidently state that they have not received any complaints from customers who are known to them and whom they have dealt with and for whom they have obtained unclaimed money and the authors of the matters that are being trolled and put out through the internet are by persons who remain anonymous and are unable to be corresponded with to be required to state the basis and/or reasons for the incorrect allegations.

Money Catch is also aware that persons involved with the above activities are using photographs of the staff of Money Catch and impersonating Money Catch in their posts and reviews.

All persons that deal with Money Catch should ensure that the source of correspondence only comes from the Money Catch domain name – moneycatch.com.au, staff emails with @moneycatch.com.au or that they have spoken personally to the staff at Money Catch.

This statement has been prepared by the Companies Senior Management and Trenches McKenzie Cox Solicitors Lismore.
