Hello, received a call from this number....I think it is a collection agency, but I have been unable to identify it....can anyone help? Blessings, Melissa




I'm sorry but not all agencies are out to get you and ruin your life by making you honor your debts.

If your credit card isn't charged off yet but in collections and you have an agency calling you then you need to contact the credit card agency and ask them where your card is place. Contact that agency, write your letter of validation if need be.. but you should also keep in mind that while waiting for them to reply you are collecting intrest late fee's and possibly an over the limit fee. Depending on the balance of the card you could be collecting fee's from 30-200 dollars a month if not more.

Most agencies who actualy follow the rules are apart of the BBB. Do a little research. You obviously have access to the internet so do a search on the company. Pull your credit report as well if you haven't gotten your free one or go to the CBR websites and purchase one.


If you are not satisified with the information you have found out about the company write them a cease and desist letter which they will forward to their client and place it with another agency.

I'm not saying the debt validation letter is a bad idea. It's not. But durring the thirt plus days you get one (allowing for 3-5 business days of mailing time from you and them from them) it is higly likely that you are going to be hit with a shot of late fee's along with a side of intrest with an over the limit fee to follow as a tastey dessert.

And I'm not talking about credit cards that have been charged off already. I am talking about precharge off. There is a HUGE difference.

If you are in entirely too much debt your best option then might be to go with a credit counseling service when they dispurse payments you make to them to each agency owed. But the most important part of this is to be sure, 100% sure you have an accepted proposal. Not all but most companies will work with you.

This number 319-274-1902 appears on the caller ID as an "Iowa Call", but you are given the number 866-239-6098 as a toll free return number. The 319-274-1902 is a land line unlisted telephone number from Waterloo, IA.

Turns out it was a BP/Amoco, now Citibank balance of less than $30 from over six months ago when we changed addresses.

I Have been called by CVE Group numerous times and harrassed somewhat on an account I have already "settled" by a third party. They clearly have broken Texas state law by continuing to call and harass me and will be reported to the Texas state Attorney General's Office.

I posted this somewhere else, and I thought it would be fitting here.



I'm speaking as a former collector, and a current debtor. Ironic huh?

I get called once a day for someone who moved from here 2 years ago. They say to hang up if you are not the one they say they want to speak too. Their website does not give you an email address to let them know this. They say email is illegal for debt discussions but I do not owe anyone. I guess I will send a registered letter but that should not be necessary as they should have a way to contact them if they are calling the wrong number.

319-274-1902 started calling me today 06/08/2009 over an old Amoco gas bill from Feb 2000. This was supposed to be included in a bankruptcy but the lawyer we hired missed a total of 3 accounts and this was one of them. NEVER NEVER NEVER admit to any debt they ask about even if you owe it as this causes the statute of limitations to be re-started as of the day you acknowledge anything. Amoco never once in 9 years ever tried to contact me and now CBE is, however, Florida statute 95.11(3)(p) states that after 4 years they have no legal leg to stand on. They try to talk over you and force a payment by threatening your credit. If you get dragged into court you must use the Statute of limitations expired defense. Look up your state attorney general to find your state statutes. Fair debt collection act states if you tell them to stop calling they must, that does not mean they will stop their efforts to collect but if you end up in court and your limitations are up say so in court and that should be the end of it.

This is CB GROUP COLLECTIONS. Watch out from them when they call they tell you that you owe money on a past due accout when the account was paid off. It's all late fees or interest. I asked for information on the account and they say they mailed it, they never did. My card was paid in full and they tell me it wasn't and they want a cc# to pay it off. Not happening, so be very careful with the company.

This is hilarious. In the past 3 weeks i have recieved over 50 calls from them. I continually aked them to top calling me They did not care. I just called CBE group almost 200 times . They had a police officer call me back and threaten to arrest me. I told him if they keep calling me i will keep calling them back. He said they wont.
