After my first contact with a Mr. John Miller (Ex 3121 per letter) and then his supposed supervisor, Mr. John Patterson on 4/26, Mr. Miller started snooping on my work mainline on 4/27. I did not offer either man the phone number I called from and stated it was none of their business when asked "where I worked". They use Caller ID which is the only way the could've gotten our Main Office Line, even if I called from my direct extension. Miller left message that I didn't return.

On 4/28 about 3PM (same time as the snoop call), a 3rd man, whose name I didn't get was rude to another co-worker in getting me to the phone. When I got on the phone, the fireworks started when I threw the FTC Lawsuit information on www.ftc.com at him. Apparently with what had to be a Script, he ranted and raved about such nonsense, I held the phone out so everyone around me could hear. This went on 10 minutes before I could say anything, with the point they made they would ruin my credit and all, I'm a deadbeat, and they will not provide proof of validation of debt, even on something 18 years old that I know nothing about.

I've filed a complaint with the FTC, the Illinois State Attorney General where they are located, and will also do the same with my own State Attorney General. My Cease and Desist letter also included a copy of the FTC Lawsuit printed from the FTC site.

Thanks to all the other people on this site who have contributed with their situations with CAMCO. We've all helped each other in some way with support or helpful advice. With filing the complaints & continuing to do so, we will get these crooks both out of business and behind bars someday.

CAMCO Still Trying after I sent Cease & Desist Letter

AUTHOR: William - (U.S.A.)

More than likely, we have crossed in the mail, as my Cease & Desist letter was sent on April 28, the same date as what I received in the mail from CAMCO yesterday. The new item is called an Affidavit and Assignment. It is requested by a Dana Tomaszewski, who is a custodian of records that were purchased from S&P Capital Investments and is an authorized agent of Capital Acquisitions & Management Co, "Assignor" (a/k/a Camco), with officially stating their correct address is 303 North Main Street, Rockford, IL 61101 & that she is authorized to make the statements and representations herein... goes on about the 18 year old account they are trying to extort money on with Marine Midland bank that I never had, with principal amount noted, much less than originally stated in their first threat letter which initiated my calls.

Other statements about collection, settlement, etc. Do they think this proves there is a legitimate debt? This Dana chick also signed on the compliance line, and it is notarized by a Sara Isley, with a stamp and official seal. There is no official seal press into the paperwork, and the signatures look very similar. The page also looks like it is printed off a website & copied. The additional attachment is a very xeroxed (like several hundred times losing quality of generation after generation) stating this company must comply with federal law that provides consumers with certain rights. One of the rights is to have them stop communicating with you about this debt. If I write to them & ask them to stop, they will. But, if I owe this debt, I will still owe it and under the law, we may still contact you for two reasons:
1. To advise you that we intend to pursue specific remedies permitted by law, or
2. To advise you that our efforts are being terminated

I may contact them if I have a complaint about the way Camco is collecting the debt & to write to another PO Box in Rockford, or calling another 877 number. Then it states, "This law is enforced by the FTC in Wash DC. I may write to the FTC in Seattle to complain about the way they are collecting the debt

In my opinion, are they trying to confuse us all? Are they saying, "tell the FTC, we'll still come after you"? I also sent my letter to their Schaumburg, IL office, so I will resend it again to Rockford. I've already filed to the FTC, Illinois State Attorney General and the NJ Dept of Consumer Affairs in the NJ Attorney General's office. I plan to forward this additional documentation to them.

In my opinion, if this is a debt buyer, is your information actually there, or with any debt they buy, does this crooked company play "Social Security Number Roulette", with your number coming up the winner and being assigned it to a debt, to try and collect it?

There's no way in hell I am paying this debt, as I don't owe it, way out of SOL & I never did business with Marine Midland or this S&P Capital in my life. Since this S&P Capital is supposedly an authorized agent, they are all in cahoots.
