I received a letter from CAMCO in my married name, which has been changed after the divorce. They are indicating that I owe $11,048.53 for a debt I originally had with MBNA. I've never ever had an MBNA account, card, or debt. When I called CAMCO to straighten this out, they were so very rude, ignorant, and threatening, that when I got off the phone, I was in tears in my office at my job. They were adamant that I owed this money, which I knew I didn't

I decided to look them up on the internet. I found letters about them being a scam company that buys old debts that they have not idea if it had been paid off or not. There were other horrible stories about what they did to other people. I dropped it.

A few weeks ago I received a letter from Portfolio Recovery Associates, LLC indicating that they are trying to collect a debt for $4,565.72 from an account they purchased from CAMCO.
This week, I received a phone call from them, asking for me in my previous name. When I heard the word CAMCO, I told them that I don't owe them anything. I told them that they are scam. He was very rude also saying that yes I did. I told him I looked them up on the internet, and hung up on them.

The amounts don't even match up. I think they just invent a figure.

I don't know how these people sleep at night trying to rip off hard working innocent people. They are the scum of the earth.
