This company has done nothing by non-stop calling, email, mailing and trying to get in touch with anyone and everyone that I have know and that has died before me. Simple understanding this one here folks.
I rented something, paid for it, returned it and now I am receiving calls, emails, and mails from some guy name "Scot" Scruta and The Offices of Tyler & Scruta saying I owe somewhere in the neighborhood of over $2,200.00.
Then the recent letter is he mailed me a bogus facsimile transmittal sheet stating that he was filing a complaint with the state licensing board for a personal debt to the company in which I work for part time. What???
Then I get a copy of an old invoice with the words "LIEN 7-20-12" on it and "PAST DUE"; however, I never received a Certified Copy of anything? Another what??? Finally, I did some research on this guy and this so-called company and here is what I found out.
1. Not an attorney
2. Not a licensed debt collector
3. I can not find him as a LLC as they state.
4. BBB non-accredited (and the Texas BBB says there is nothing they can do to help!)
5. Has been issued a Letter of Caution from the RPS Consumer Protection Committee in North Carolina for this SAME thing!
"08AP0015-SD: "Scot" Scruta dba "Tyler and Scruta" individual who is neither an attorney nor a collection agent to a couple in Charlotte, NC, in an effort to collect a purported debt of an equipment provider from a contractor engaged by the couple has been ordered to cease and desist.
Scot and his company "The Offices of Tyler & Scruta" have been reported to the Texas Better Business Bureau, the Texas Attorney General's office and now the Ripoff Report. Beware of this schemer. Oh yeah, nice email address working for this prestigious collection firm.

Wow, why not just get a FREE Gmail account and go with that? Thanks
