Bikes allegedly acting as debt collectors in Victoria

Wednesday, June 27, 2012 - Posted by Philip Harvey

The Sydney Morning Herald reported that bikies are now allegedly collecting debts in Victoria. The newspaper says police intelligence has recorded links between Visy and the notorious bikie gang, and found that other bikie gangs and underworld figures are acting as collectors. It is alleged the bikies moved into the industry after the Victorian government last year scrapped the licensing of collectors. Visy dismissed the bikie allegations as “nonsense”.

The Victorian Government rolled out a negative licensing regime last year, whereby collectors no longer required licenses.

In NSW, all Collection Agents and Agencies are required to be licensed under the CAPI ACT, requiring photographic ID and Police fingerprinting.
