General Information

Original Business Start Date: July 1997
Principal : Mr. Jeffery Garrington Compliance Officer
Phone Number: (866) 745-5420
Fax Number: (815) 968-1577
Type-of-Business Classification: Credit-Collection Agencies

The information in this report has either been provided by the company, or has been compiled by the Bureau from other sources.

Nature of Business

Capital Acquisitions & Management Company also known as CAMCO purchases delinquent accounts either directly from the original creditors or from a subsequent holder of accounts. Any accounts that they are collecting on are believed to be owed and therefore now owed to CAMCO. It is important to remember that each state has its own Statues of Limitations applicable to unpaid debts which could be anywhere from four to ten years. However in most states, including Illinois, the expiration of that the Statue of Limitation merely extinguishes the right to sue on or other wise legally enforce the debt, and does not extinguish the debt itself. There does not appeared to be anything that prohibits a collector from seeking voluntary payment of the debt as long as the collector does no pursue or threaten the debtor with litigation. CAMCO will provide verification of the debt upon request and if CAMCO is unable to provide verification of the account the account is cancelled and will not be resold.

Customer Experience

The complaints on file allege that representatives have been rude and/or the consumers allege that they do not own the debt or it has been discharged in bankruptcy.

When evaluating complaint information, please consider the company's size and volume of business. The number of complaints filed against the company may not be as important as the type of complaints and how the company handled them.

Educational/General Comments

As with any business transaction, be sure to read all agreements, guarantees, and instructions before signing. Do not be pressured into signing an agreement before you are ready and you understand all terms and conditions. Make sure all oral promises are put in writing. Be wary of vaguely worded provisions, exclusions or limitations which could pose a problem later. Never sign a contract with sections left blank.

STOP! ..before you think about using the Better Business Bureau (BBB)... CLICK HERE to see how other consumers were victimized by the BBB's false or misleading information. Don't be fooled! It has been reported, when there are thousands of complaints and other investigations underway by authorities, the BBB has no choice but to finally give an UNsatisfactory rating to a BBB member business that is paying the BBB big membership fees every year. When a business is reported that is NOT a BBB member, BBB files WILL more likely show an UNsatisfactory rating, then reportedly shake down that company to become a member of the BBB. One positive thing about the BBB is, either way, if a business has an unsatisfactory rating with the BBB, you can be sure, the business is bad. But what about all those BBB member businesses that had complaints filed against them? Consumers never get to hear about them. What about the BBB advertising to the public? Is this a false and misleading perception they are giving about consumer confidence when dealing with a business? Click here to understand more of what consumers and business alike are saying about the BBB. You decide. ..Remember. The BBB membership is not earned, it's paid for!
