After reading the plethora of complaints launched against CAMCO, I am relieved to know I am not alone(unfortunately) in these mafia tactics by this gestapo sCAMCO.

My horror began in January of this year(2004), when I received a call from a female claiming to represent CAMCO, stating that I pay $3600 for a supposed debt I owed Citibank. After stating that I did not own a credit card and asking the caller to provide me with some identification information, the caller stated that she may have contacted the wrong person and stated that she would correct her records. Mind you, she never gave me any information regarding the person she was attempting to contact.

Approximately 3 weeks later, I received another call from a sCAMCO representative, who initially refused to identify himself, stating that I owed a company they were representing(Citibank Visa) $3600 and that if I provided him with a check for $500 he would "clear my name". I told him that I had spoken to someone previously and that she stated that she would fix that problem. He then asked if my name was "so and so", I told him I wouldn't offer any identifying information to someone I did not know. He then stated a social security number(not mines) and said "I know this is you" and demanded that I pay the money or he would call me everyday until I paid.

Having been a victim of identity theft(that individual was caught and I have documented evidence from the Alameda County Courts and the U.S. Postal General Inspector) I informed the "voice" on the telephone that if he provided me with information regarding his account I would be more cooperative. He stated that the account was a defaulted VISA account dating back to 1990. I immediately told him that the statue of limitations had expired after seven years and he had no legal rights to claim such debt. He immediately became verbally abusive "informing" me that it was "deadbeats" like me who was cause for the bad shape of the economy(I read one rebuttal here mimicking the same trash) and that I should be ashamed of myself for not "owning up" to my "adult responsibilities".

Without fail, this imbecile continues to call. I have since learned his name, BRIAN MILLER, (ext. 1131). The low point was when he called in mid April and threatened my child(an eleven yr old) to have me placed in "jail" because I'm acting like a criminal. He has been rude with my wife as recent as of May 11, 2004, telling her "I don't know how you can be married to a man who won't pay his debts". My wife hung up on him after a few choiced words. I have since instructed my children to use all the words they are prohibitted to use under any other conditions or situations with this @#$-hole.

I've tried reminding BRIAN MILLER(ext 1131) that he is in violation of FEDERAL LAWS and he only shrugs it off. I've asked for his supervisors name, and he LIED and said he was "the boss", I received a similar response when I asked for the company number--He wouldn't even give me the company name. I finally grew tired of the harassing calls and told him if he gave me an address, I'd send a check for $500, just to stop the calls. He said he didn't believe me, that I should provide him with my "checking account routing number"(even instructing me where to look for it). I told him that no sane person would provide that sensitive information over the phone, that I would be willing to send him $1300 just to get him to stop calling me(I even feigned tears, for effect).

Finally, he gave me the information I had been requesting for WEEKS. I promptly did a google.com search, got the business number and called and left several messages threatening legal action if BRIAN MILLER(ext. 1131)did not cease and desist his harassing calls. One message, I read the COMPLETE Section 806 and 807 of FDCPA, 15(I'm sure his boss loved that one).

Today at 12:31 PM, I received a call from BRIAN MILLER(ext. 1131). Not his normally cocky attitude, but sounding as if he had just swallowed a huge dose of contrition, stating that he was going to continue calling, that my calling and "bitching" wasn't going to stop the calls. That was the straw that broke the camel's back. I learned of this site on google and followed many of the advice. I promptly reported sCAMCO to the FTC and will be sending them a registered mail first thing in the morning.

Please inform me what more I should do. sCAMCO gives new meaning to the phrase "going postal". Any advice will be helpful. And to those collecting agents posting here defending their unethical practices, shame on you.

sned them a cease and desist letter

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

POSTED: Saturday, May 15, 2004


In you registered letter, be sure to tell them to stop calling you about the account. Once you have told them that, by law they have to stop contact with you unless they are going to sue you ot tell you, which they can't do for a 14 year old debt anyway. If they keep harassing you after that, you can sue them and make sure you complain to the FTC about it as well.
