AMO Recoveries - What allegations have people made against them?

member profile picture

Has anyone heard of AMO Recoveries in Norcross, GA? According to the BBB they have an unsatisfactory record. I received an AMO debt collection notice for $32.02 on a credit card and all the letter states is that AMO Recoveries has been informed that the account is past due, and DO YOU INTEND ON PAYING THIS DEBT? Their address is 7067 W Broward Blvd. Suite C Plantation, Florida 33317. I think a debt validation letter is in order. If anyone has heard of AMO Recoveries, please let me know.

Find out who the original creditor was. On such a low bill it could be for a magazine subscription, something for a kid's site plus a bit of interest. It is to your benefit to pay off low balance debts like this as fast as you can because it definitely improves your credit reliability. I have worked in collections for years (25+) and it always amazes me when people refuse totake care of the more managebale debts they have. It's just plain crazy. Bite the buller, straighten out the problem and make sure you get a letter before you pay the debt. giving the credit info and the balance. Then after you submit your money order (checks tell too much), submitted with your lette, make sure you get a confirmation of payment received and that the credit bureau is notified that the debt is "satisfied in full". You want to keep all copies of recent documentation in case it comes up when applying for a loan or credit down the road.

Can anyone get me the toll free number for the AMO idiots. I filed already filed chapter 7 and they shouldn't be bothering me anymore.

Since you have filed chapter 7, you need to contact your bankruptcy attorney and let them know that AMO has violated the stay. Your bankruptcy attorney will handle it from there.

I have an account with AMO,I have been paying on my account for a year. This morning I called them because my balance on my statement was incorrect. First of all, the person that I talked to last year is no longer employed there so I got another person that was rude from the beginning. She informed me that I have 10 past due accounts with them. First time hearing that. I ask her for the account numbers because I have payment arrangements with the hospital that she said I have these accounts with.I think I unleashed a monster for asking this. She told me she didn't have to give me the account numbers because some of them were paid. My concern was have I paid double on these accounts. Just wanted my account numbers. She started giving me the numbers so quickly that I ask her to slow down, she then informed me that she didn't have to. She was very rude, told me she was upset with me because I had 10 accounts with them. The point, I work CSR and I would never talk to anyone the way she talked to me. When I said that to her. She said she wasn't customer service. I ask to speak to her Manager, she quickly told me his name then hung up. When I called back she had a whole different story made up. Telling me I was rude to her. I did get upset when she would not give me my account numbers. I ask her to mail them to me, she said she would not, I ask her to email them to me, she said no. I need to compare the numbers because I feel I have paid twice . I do not know what to do.

I keep getting these messages on my machine to return a call to AMO, when I call I find out its AMO recoveries. I have NEVER not paid a bill, and never been over 30 days late for anything. I have excellent credit. My phone number is only a year old and it isn't listed. I bought my house a year ago and not one bill has been late or missed. What is going on? I researched the company and find awful things. How did they get my number? And I can't get a hold of anyone. i call the 800 number and get a recording to leave a message which I won't do. What the heck???

Maybe, the company did a skip tracing and got the access to view your credit report. They can also get someone's phone number by calling their place of work. Send a cease and desist letter and if necessary, a debt validation letter to get the accurate purpose of these calls.

actually I did get to talk to someone and they were looking for someone totally different and said they would remove me from the list. They were actually nice about it and gave me no problems.

My college son had a $500 cell phone bill...unpaid....sent to AMO Recoveries. They have added on $116 for "Collection fees". They are calling us saying they have this right because of the origional contract he signed with US Cellular. They were unwilling to work out a payment plan or anything with him. He only makes $80 a week at the nursing home and is in college full time. What is the likelyhood they will take him to court? His ex-rotten girlfriend had him sign the contract ant then ran up the bill before they split. HELP!!!!! We looked them up withthe BBB....NOT GOOD!!!!!
