CBCS (collection Agency) Attempts to collect debts you don't owe--apparently uses names obtained from the internet as owed. Columbus Ohio
After a conversation where I got the name of the company I was supposed to owe (an emergency medical company and a doctor), I hung up.
I searched the Internet for the purported emergency company and found NOTHING. The doctor's name was on the Internet, but available to anyone.
I googled CBCS and found that 195 other people had the same or a similar experience. I called a friend who had trouble with a collection agency harassing her about an unpaid (and un-owed) phone bill. Guess what? It was CBCS.
No telling how many thousands of people in this country are sending checks to these scam artists to "protect their credit rating."
Sadly, these scums have my personal info including SS#! I have reported them to the Columbus police, the Ohio attorney general, the Federal Trade Commission, and the FBI as well as to the doctor whose name they were fraudently using.
