4/25/2006, 5:30PM Ken Hughes (888-249-4134) called stating he was calling from Chicago Illinois - Merchants Credit Guide Ken said that a letter was mailed 4/22/2006 (I didn't get it yet). I explained the account was paid in full and closed by The Credit Store in the 90s. I also mentioned that a company by the name of CAMCO Capital Acquisitions & Mgmt Company also tried to collect an already paid debit in 2003. Ken stated that he did not know who CFB Financial Services is. I asked for them to go back to who they purchased the loan from and get back to me. In 2003 I added a rip off report to this site, emailed, called and wrote many gov agencies.
Fourscore Resource Capitol was another company that tried to collect the debit and got shut down. Yes, I have been through this so many times that I know how to fight back.
4/25/2006, 6:30 I called to get a reference or account numbers and was told that Ken left and I was transferred to Randy Moore Ext 776. Randy I told him this debit was collected years ago and he said that someone from his company will look into this and provide me with more information.
Be sure to start a history log of all your calls with the name and what you talked about. Be sure to call them back every three days or sooner. I am not sure what to tell you if you owe the money because if you pay it, you will get calls in the future saying the debt was not properly cleared. In other words you paid the wrong person. Be sure that you do not give them your SS# or anything other information other you're your phone number.
These companies go bankrupt, sell out (sell your phone number/name). I think that CAMCO illegally sold my info
write a "debt validation" request where you challenge the debt, and DEMAND to see something you signed to create the debt and an account history.
Send this letter by certified mail, return reciept requested, and put the certified# on the letter itself. Keep a copy for your records.
