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.
