ED Magedson – Founder
Rickenbacker Group - Collection Agency15005 Concord Cir Morgan Hill, California United States of America
* I terminated an Atty (Chris Vaughn - Vaughn Law Firm ~GA) for his unethical legalconduct/performanceand non-performance of his legal duties when I paid him $9,000. Atty. Chris Vaughnthen sends $1,260 bill to Rickenbacker Group ("RG") Collection Agency (June 2009) (after he was terminated) to make false claims I owed him additional money because he was pissed because I fired him. I disputed his so-called false debtwith Rickenbacker Group ("RG") repeated times andI spoke with (4)Collection Agents at'RG'that had no more experience than a cashier at Wal*Mart.
I spoke with RG's Supervisor ("Alex") who then forwarded me to "Brenda" .. who then said Stacey Angst ("Compliance Division") would be contacting me. In review of the many documents I've sent "RG" by email they have grossly ignored me and refusing to fix this problem and they have FALSELY reported this on my EQUIFAX Credit Report as owing "RG" for $1,260.
I've disputedthis matter (4x) with Equifax against "RG" because this (abusive) extortion and"RG" Collection Agency has violated every FCRA & FCDPA (Federal) Laws and harassing meto pay additional funds I do not owe RG personally and furthermore....Atty. Chris Vaughn (Vaughn Law Firm (based in GA)) violated FCRA/FCDPAby engaging in unlawful extortion harassment tactics to get me to pay fees when he was previously terminated for his services. I had contacted RG's "Stacy Angst" and received many of her voicemails (no return calls)...I've sent emails that she has received...no return emails either.
When I requested "RG's" Owner, CEO name and contact information...ALL these Collection Agents lied and said, "We don't have that information" (and forward you to Stacey Angst's voicemail (again, 4x). After researching RG's profile (on their website)...Low and Behold...look what's on their website.... the CEO's name and email address! Carlos Casas, CEO, CCasas@RickenbackerGroup.com . I've called (3x) only to have my phone calls "screened" as "He's not in...let me transfer you to his Voicemail." THEN....I called a week later and the Agents were "screening" the calls again and insisted I be transferred to their H.R. Dept. (Wait a minute..I'm not applying for a Job...I want to report a Legal Violation that Mr. Casas is responsible for and NEEDS to fix!
I've contacted EQUIFAX and they're no more knowledgablethan a bag of hammers because when you "dispute" something on your credit report, the "investigation" goesright backto the Collection Agency and all the Collection Agency does is "validate your name/address" and not review Federal (FCRA/FDCPA) Laws becausenone of these Agents have anylegal knowledgeor meansof following the Law. Why would Equifax send a disputeBACK to"RG" for investigation that I have a dispute with? Conflict of Interest and shear bias decision because RG isn't going to find THEMSELVES at fault (oh no....that would never happen.)
Ifiled a complaint to the Atty. General's Office (in GAandCA) for RG to be informed of their collection abuse extortion tactics and demand they remove their name from my Credit Bureaus because I will sue them for $2,000 for each FCRA/FDCPA Law they've violated. Just because RG ison the West Coast, they're not going to 'outrun'the Atty General's Office's (in CA & GA) becauseFCRA/FDCPA Laws have to be enforced on these Collection Agences to stop abusive/extortion collection practices and they need to be sued.
If anyone has similar problems, POST your complaint on this website...file grievances for investigation to the Atty General's Offices...get it done to stop these Collection Agencies (like "RG") from abusive/extortion harassment. I'm sure Carlos Casas, CEO, CCasas@RickenbackerGroup.com would enjoy hearing from you (and being contacted from (your local) Atty General's Office) to fix the severe problems they're causing and violating Federal Laws also.
This report will notbe removed until Carlos Casas, CEO, Rickenbacker Group & Atty. Chris Vaughnremovethis false reporting on my Credit Report(s). If (both) Parties do not remove their names from my Credit Bureaus, they will beliable for punitivedamages that I will pursue in Court (promptly).
