CAMCO, Capital Acquisitions And Management Company Another attempt to rip-off, harass, and muscle payment on old (non-existent) debt Rockford Illinois
Same story, trying to collect on a non-existent, paid account that is almost 15 years old. This guy actually called me on my cell phone, and was not willing to let me "call him back in less than 15 minutes when I returned to my office". He said that he could only hold the "lower-amount" for the duration of this call, and would allow me to post-date a check (electronically) so that I could do my research.
I refused to give him the information at that time and said for him to "do what he had to do" as he was not allowing the time I had requested to do some research. He than changed his tune a bit (I think he sensed that I may actually pay the debt if given enough time to research it) and allowed me to call him when I returned to the office. He agreed to fax some information regarding the debt so that I could review the documents.
I told him that I would be checking his company out on the internet, and he informed me that they did not have a web page and cautioned me about all of the "dead-beats" that write un-true complaints about the company, as they ARE in the collection business. He suggessted that I call the Better Business Bureau. (Which I did)
Called the BBB and they had no record of the company. (I'm from California, not surprising that this office did not have information on them) They suggested I call the BBB in Rockford and gave me the number. Their number is as follows: 815-963-2222. I spoke to MaryAnn at the Rockford facility and she was quite informative.
She said there have been 183 complaints against the company in the past 36 months (That's how long they hold information). She also informed me of the SOL's (Statute of Limitations), and suggested I do a little more research on those in my state. (Which I did and like most, have found out that they have long since passed). I also asked her how to have them stop calling and she said all I need to do is send her a certified letter stating my complaint and asking them to stop, and she would handle it from there. Their address is as follows:
B.B.B. (Better Business Bureau) 810 E. State Street, Rockford, IL. 61104
Thanks for posting all of the comments - Really saved me from making a bad decision. I hope by me adding this that it helps someone as much as you did me! Good luck everyone!

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!
