CBE Group collection agency - How do consumers perceive this company?

member profile picture

So I get daily calls every half hour or so from the following number:

(515) 453-2972

It comes up on the caller ID as "IOWA CALL"

So I get numerous recorded messages on my machine to call back "Timothy" at:

800-665-5315

When I googled that number, it came up with YMCA. LoL

I live nowhere near Iowa, and I'm positive it's a CA calling, but I don't know which one, and I'll be darned if I'm going to talk to them on the phone. If I can figure out who it is, I will send them a DV letter.

Thanks!

Jenna

Low job skills and employability?? Again,the company I worked at required some college and preferred a degree. We had many people with advanced degrees. I myself was a lawyer in Canada prior to my move to the US. We had people from all walks of life and all fields. We would interview 10 people for every position available. Why you ask?? We made damn good money, worked hard and we had fun. Over 60% of my agency made incomes in the 6 figures. We did this without breaking the law and knowing our skills.
What the former collector of CBE made a lot of sense. We had a lot of people who called in who thought the knew the law....usually they didnt. We would have to deal with offensive and abusive debtors everyday....it was part of the job.


Fine and dandy that you followed the law to a T... You should since you have a background as an atty in Canada. You are the exception rather than the rule. You only have to have experience in collections. Believe me, most debt collectors do not have advanced degrees. All debt collectors NEED to follow the law to a T whether they have a degree or not.

Do you have anything in writing to document the settlement agreement?

Most collections agents aren't "thugs". They're real people, with families and bills themselves. They don't know who you are, and believe it or not most of them don't really care whether or not you pay the bill they are trying to collect. They, just like you, simply don't enjoy being called names and lied to all day long. It is a stressful thing to be involved in having delinquent debts, and it just sucks that it has to happen. Trying to play the "I'm going to sue you" game or the "you are in violation of this or that law" game is most often a waste of time. When you are really frustrated because of something causing you to not pay a debt, and someone calls you to ask you to pay it, naturally it's really easy to just vent all your frustrations on this person. Most often this is what starts the hostility and leads to things like an angry collector doing or saying something mean or harassing.

P.S. - Harassment can be anything you want it to be. It's defined in FDCPA as anything that the consumer feels is harassment. If you don't like what they're doing and think it's harassing, it's harassing and you can tell them that.

whatevs....geez you people come on here and act like threatening people is okay,but when someone comes on here and vents about it then they are the bad guys.any collector that demands payment without docs is a thug.any collector that threatens arrest is a thug.any collector that threatens garnishment is a thug.get the picture.the only collectors that get mentioned here are thugs,and should be treated as such.
