This collection agency is contacting MY landlord because I owe medical debts, putting my status with my landlord in serious jeapardy. My landlord is extremely upset now that he is getting phone calls from California Business Bureau, Inc. collection agency about my debt I owe, and has nothing to do with the landlord. I told my landlord that I already contacted California Business Bureau, Inc. and made payment arrangements to pay a monthly payment, and in Feb 2011 when I get my income tax return, the amount owed would be paid in full. Since California Business Bureau, Inc. works off commission and profit, this is unnacceptable to them as they want their money NOW.
This company NEVER even called me or spoke to me first, and I never even received the first letter from them that they are the collection agency trying to collect. They just call my landlord of the house I am renting.
So now the landlord is threatening me as the tenant that he will not renew their lease for the house they are renting when the lease comes up, and now may issue a 60 day eviction notice because of the harrassing phone calls.
California Business Bureau, Inc. REFUSES to allow the debtor to mail in a money order as a monthly payment, they are demanding that you give them your credit card or bank account information. DONT DO THIS! Never give California Business Bureau, Inc. your credit card or bank account ifo, because then they will have complete control over you and they can do whatever they want to do with your account.
California Business Bureau, Inc. is not only trying to collect a debt, they are now creating 10 times more civil damages to the person owing the debt.
