  After several past dues notices, I received collection agency in the mail. It was supposed to be for a magazine called National Review. First I called the phone # on the notice and was told this was an effort to collect a debt for the National Review in the amount of $19.95. I told the girl I had not ordered nor had I received any magazines. She said I would have to open a dispute with the National Review. I asked her for their phone # and she said she did not have it, I would have to get it off the internet. !st red flag!   I called National Review and was told, DO NOT PAY THOSE PEOPLE ANYTHING.

RMCB Retrieval Masters Creditors Bureau / Men's Health Men's Health Magazine Men's Health Auto Reneal Invoice Disquised as a Collection Notice Elmsford New York
I received an official looking collection letter from RMCG - Retrieval Masters Creditors Bureau, Inc. on behalf of Men's Health magazine.  The letter said that I had an account to settle which was still unresolved.  I called the phone number given and reached Men's Health magazine customer service.  I spoke with the rep who indicated that the $24.97 that was unresolved was actually a magazine renewal notice.  How unfortunate that a well respected magazine like Men's Health would resort to using RMCB to deliver renewal notices disquised as collection letters.  If you receive this type of letter and don't want to renew the magazine, just call the phone number provided to cancel.  I would have renewed, if Men's Health had simply sent a renewal notice and invoice.  How unfortunate that deception has become their way of business.

Retrieval-Masters Creditors Bureau RMCB, American Medical Collection Agency, AMCA The very FIRST communication we got from RMCB claims the debt is Valid since we hadn't disputed it yet. Elmsford New York
I received the first and only communication from Retrieval-Masters Creditors Bureau today. They claim the account was sold to their client, Pinnacle Credit Services, and  had already been reported to the national credit bureau.  It states: Since we have not heard from you regarding our initial notices, we must assumethat you do not dispute the debt... account has been classified as valid... and subject to collection in full.   That is a bold-faced lie, and, according to the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, collectors cannot use false or misleading statements. I know I've never heard from these guys before. I keep very close tabs on any collection notices that come through here. There are a  lot of fraudulent and dishonest debt collectors out there because people are intimidated by collection notices, so even if they've never owed the money, they will pay. This is the first time I've run across this tactic of trying to make people think they have no option but to pay. Definitely not legal!   It's also very shady because there is no mention of either the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act or the state Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act anywhere on the notice and the only other collection notices I've seen that also did not mention those laws were fraudulent. It's hard to believe this company has been in business since 1977, although it's easy to see why the Better Business Bureau has assigned them an F rating.

I received a third-party collection notice regarding a past-due AT&T bill several years ago. The bill in question was over $200 from an AT&T account I closed several years prior. I had never received a past-due bill directly from AT&T, or any outstanding balance notice due on that account from AT&T. I called the number on the colection notice to question the bill. The representative explained my bill had been split and that's why I still owed. In good faith I did not challenge the past-due bill and offered to send the payment in the enclosed envelope. The representative asked if I had the address to mail the check. I said yes and read the address on the envelope enclosed in the collection notice. He said that address was incorrect and offered to transact my payment via credit card. I paid with a credit card during the call. Now, three years later, I received another third-party past-due AT&T collection bill for the same account for over $100 from Asset Acceptance/RMCB.

Retrieval Masters Creditors Bureau - RMCB Collection Agency sent a collection letter, then refusal to provide detail on who I supposedly owed, never heard of the supposed creditor Elmsford New York
I received a letter at my place of business with a very unprofessional sounding collection cover letter claiming that I owed someone called Grandma's kitchen $31.22. Letter claims our client insists that you pay this balance blah blah. Never heard of Grandma's Kitchen. I called the# on the letter and only got automated prompts. Looked up their website shown and finally got a person who simply said they would remove the item as owed. I pressed for details on who Grandma's Kitchen is. They said we don't know that information, they send us the collection data electronically. I continued to press for the info and asked for several supervisors. All of them said the same thing. The last supervisor I got was sent to voice mail. Tried to call NY City dept of consumer affairs (who's license# this letter shows on the back) but could not reach a live body. Tried to call the BBB for the area but they wanted a credit card# to report via phone. Will report via web. N.E. Alpharetta, GeorgiaU.S.A.

I will not let these people win and recieve money that they don't even deserve.I'm sure I am not the only one out there who has been scammed from this company because I have read other complaint reports...so I know I am not alone, but I would like to know how I can get this problem resolved and how to further prevent this from happening to me in the future.

Retrieval Masters Creditors Bureau trying to collect on accounts that are paid in full Elmsford New York
In April, 2006, I was contacted by these folks due to accounts owed to my auto club for books my boys got out of the mail before me. They got the bills too. I contacted the auto club, canceled the books and paid them off. Now 2-21-09 I get a letter from retrieval masters dated 2-14-09 attempting to collect $58.23. I contacted the auto club immediately and was told the account was paid in full and to ignore the letters. The economy is bad and I am sure these collections agencies are having a bad time so they could try to slip a few by. There are those out there that will pay even though they do not owe or have allready paid. There are companies called scavenger collection agencies that pay pennies on the dollar for bad depts that have allready been written off and can not legally be collected.These people will lie and try anything to collect when they cannot do anything. Retrieval Masters is one of these scavengers. Anyone who gets billed from them should investigate. DO NOT send them money without first verifing the debt. I have one letter for $10,006.06 for a dept they said I co-signed in 2001. This is with another collector for when my brother went to a rip-off truck driving school in Arkansas. They claim I co-signed which I did not, and since he lives in South Carolina, where he cannot be garnished, and I live in Georgia they are trying to get me. The original loan was around $3,000.00. State law says statute of limitations on written contracts is 6 (six) years. They will try anything and have yet to send me a copy of the contract. I do not have to prove I did not sign it, that point is mute. They are not allowed to attempt collections on it.These collections companies are really hard up. Everyone beware.

I received a notice from RMCB that they are trying to collect a debt of $19.94 for their client Silkies Enriche Skincare/HCI Direct, Inc First of all, I've never heard of this company let alone order something from them. And even if I did, how would I have ever received anything without paying for it in the 1st place. I tried to contact RMBC but was not able to get anymore than a menu that didn't include an option to talk to a person. They claimed that they tried to contact me several times since March of 2007 but I ignored their responses. I have never been aware of this accusation until I received letter in mail Saturday Feb 2, 2008. After looking, I see I'm not the the 1st to have this issue with this company. I just want to know how I was even able to get on their list to threaten me with such. I refuse to pay this bill for something I'm totally not responsible for and I appreciate anything you can do to discredit the so called company. Thanks! Greg Edgewood, MarylandU.S.A.

RMCB Collection Agency - Retrieval Masters Credit Bureau ripoff Member ACA The Association Of Credit And Collection Professionals On Behalf Of Prof. Benjamin Huntington Repetive Fraudulent Billing Senior Abuse Scammer Network Elmsford New York
Recently we received a collection letter from RMCB, on behalf of Prof. Benjamin Huntington, for nearly one-hundred dollars, for something ordered in OCTOBER, 2003. Background: Prof. Huntington is a quack. He is a charlatan who preys upon the feeble minded, and seductively sells them his snake oil. Specifically, he claims to be a psychic, and his market leans toward senior citizens. There is only one source of right and wrong in this world, and that is the Bible. The Lord clearly states in the Old Testament that He arrayed the stars in the heavens, and if he wanted to give them meaning, he would have done it. I will not argue this truth. Therefore, anyone who says the arrangements of the stars have meaning, or that they will read them for you, they are lying. Plain and simple. I don't care what title they give themselves (like professor or cosmologist); they do it just to impress you and to gain a superior position to you in your mind. Once they have established their superior position of authority they proceed to tell you how you need their services. Typically, in the constant flow of mail you receive from them, they will address you as friend, as in Dear Friend. They tell you they are worried, or crying for you, or praying for you, or that you are on their mind. This too has a purpose that is to butter you up and continue their lies to persuade you further that they have your best interests at heart. They don't. They have their eye on your wallet, and seek to empty it, fully and completely. Back in 2003, my mother was persuaded by the professor's eloquent letters to order some charm from him. For this she promptly paid. Now it is February of 2007, and here comes a collection notice. It claims there is non-payment on the account. What's the game here? That someone would not remember having paid for the item, be concerned that their good credit would be impacted, be worried they had done this man wrong, and cough up what he says he is owed. That's right...double or triple paying for the same delivery. They appeal to your sense of right and wrong, to your internal moral code, that they might defraud you. How do I know? I've dealt with them before. I've had them threaten to send the police (literally) over to my mother (82) and arrest her for lack of payment. This is both senior abuse and collections abuse! IF there was a lack of payment, the action would be to sue her, not have her arrested! The police don't follow up on calls to arrest someone on another's word that something wasn't paid. They make arrests based on warrants, and warrants are generated by the government's attorney general system, not by a phone call by a community member (or out of state or country!). In today's incident, they said they would close the file as soon as I called. In a previous situation, my mother DID pay them the second time to get them to stop harassing her by phone, and was about to pay them a THIRD time when I stepped in, pulled the cancelled check, and threatened them. They insisted I send it to them, and I refused because if they can't get their accounting straight, I wasn't going to waste my time to help a bunch of scam artists and their affiliates. About their affiliates...it is clear that when one scammer gets a hot customer, that means one who pays (you), they sell your contact info to another of same (or ten or twenty) and your mailbox begins to fill with offers from friends who want to tell you that they see money in your future or a grand trip. You send off your funds to find out, they sell your name to the sweepstakes people, who write and call to tell you how you MAY have one millions, you just need to send them money so they can send you the results. Every time you send funds to a sweepstakes, you are pushed into a higher level of the scam because you paid. The amounts you won increase, the calls and letters of needing money from you to tell you increase in number and amount, and eventually someone tries to tap you for a pay in advance scheme for the Nigerian 4-1-1. A PIA/411 is where you need to put up thousands so they can deliver your millions. You are paying for the transportation, or the bonding, paying for taxes, or this or that. You wire the funds, and no one appears. The calls continue...there was a problem; they had to change banks; etc...you wire more money, and the people with the money never appear. If you were paying for bonding, you should be talking to their insurance agency, or better yet, yours. If you were paying for taxes, that's foolish because taxes are automatically deducted before the check is produced (no state trusts a fool and his money); if you were paying for transportation, make the arrangements yourself, and put it on your credit card. NOTE: if someone tells you they are bringing more than $10,000 across international lines, they are ignoring Homeland Security and the Customs Department declarations that they will confiscate the money. That much money raises eyebrows, especially since 911. No, the Customs Department will not call you to claim it. They will send it to the Treasury Department and *maybe* thank you for the donation. Customs Agents are police officers for the US Government and protect our borders. (If someone calls you from the Customs Department, or the IRS, or ANY government agency, they will ALWAYS give the full government agency name, never the initials, and ALWAYS their badge number. They had to swear an oath to uphold the laws of the city/county/state/country to get their job. They will always verify who they are for your safety. A scammer, however, will hang up when you press them.) This is why scammers ALWAYS tell you that 'you must keep this a secret! Don't tell anyone until you have the funds! Don't contact the news agencies until you have your check!' They psychics throw in you'll jinx it if you tell. Yes, don't contact the news crews. If you get them there, you will be the fool when your funds do not arrive. Embarrassed and stung for your thousands, all at the same time. Instead do tell your loved ones, and have them help you with these scammers. Better to be embarrassed among a few than be known as a fool by many. If you truly won money, they would call the press and have a party as they hand you an enlarged check. They would seek the publicity, not you. Think Ed McMahon. He traveled with his camera crew to film the event. If they REALLY wanted to get the funds to you, they would send you a certified check, or wire it to your bank (for a brand new and empty account you set up for the occasion). Remember that the Fed guarantees funds up to $100,000 per account. Let them deposit funds all to one account, and then you distribute it. Don't worry, the money won't be deposited! Finally, if you truly believe these people are going to send you money, get counseling. Your desire/need for money is so great it is clouding your ability to recognize the dishonest. You've stopped trusting God to provide for you, and are trusting scoundrels and scammers. May God bless you as you seek His truth. S. Garden Grove, CaliforniaU.S.A.
