Thank You Ripoffreport.com. Thanks to your reports I was warned before making a potentially serious mistake!

On 18Dec06 Certegy Payment Recovery Services sent me three collection letters demanding $797.08 for checks written 30Nov06 to three retail stores. Using the Internet I learned two of the stores are located in Pasagoula, MS (with the 3d being another Sears store 20 miles away).

At first I though this may be an identity theft but it could easily be an attempt to obtain my personal information by prompting me to request a "forgery affadavit" from CPRS. A forgery affadavit includes your SSN and driver's license number.

Please note: I was not in Pascagoula last month or any other time. I have never been there before. I have never owned any checks matching the check numbers reported by CPRS. My bank has no knowledge of these alleged transactions. Also I have not made any transactions with these retailers even in my home state (cash, check, charge, in-person or online).

Please note: I am suspicious because CPRS does not include your checking account number (or driver's license number) in their mailings.

I will be submitting the CPRS letters to the local district attorney's office and US Post Office.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Miss C. contact your bank

AUTHOR: J - (U.S.A.)

what were the dates these check were written?
The collection agency has no prower to do anything for fraud, nor will they.
damand copies of both the front and back of the checks. they will tell you they can't give you them. do it all by mail, have them sign for it.

also contact your bank, with whatever information you have and see if those checks went thru. changes are, it will be to old and your bank may not have any info. and this collection agency's knows that.

If they refuse to give you copies, contact the PINELLAS SHERIFF DEPT. AND THE PINELLAS STATE ATTORNEY OFFICE also file a complaint with the Florida attorney general office

these forgery affadavit are to get personal information on you nothing more. any affadavits filled out should come from your bank, attorney's, police or sheriff agency's not any collection agency.

you have a right by law to copies of those checks don't let that collection company tell you otherwise.

the reason you should contact your bank, is so you can have that information in writting from them and use it to file suit against the company
