Douche bags that look for companies in financial crisis and then prey on them in order to suck any remaining assets or cash they may be able to profit from. They advertise in the national newspapers, on the radio and on TV.
They send unsolicited mail to companies and individuals to who have had county court judgements and winding up petitions lodged against them offering salvation and solutions. They make false promises to company directors. The companies who operate in this way charge huge fees for unprofessional advice.
oh shit i've been chased by an ambulance.
