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

Any one in the area code want an auto dialer, since you are not a company then you should be able to keep calling until they change their number. If they are answering your call, they are not calling someone else and LOSING money.

I tried to call CBE in Waterloo at 319-234-6686 and got their company directory. There are a lot of Johnsons that work there: Terry, Trish, AJ and Brei. I wonder if CBE is run by the Johnson family???

Iowa is the heartland. I worked in Minneapolis and we had about 10 Johnsons, 20 Andersons and a half dozen Carlesons.

You could also try googling the CBE group and get their 800 number

:rolleyes:These people are very harrassing and are unfamiliar with the FDCPA (Fair Debt Collections Practice Act). They have called me multiple times in a day, even after I spoke with them. They refuse to leave a voicemail, and when u return a call to the # on caller id it says busy, closed or routes you to a voicemail service. I made arrangements with them one day and the next day someone called me back and demanded pay in full. I asked for a supervisor and they refused to provide a whole name. They dont seem very ligit to me.

The intelligence level on this site is off the charts - I'm an employee of CBE, so I can understand some of the frustration levels felt by some of the people on here. However, the childish actions (boat horns, "Hotel California", etc.) pretty much insure that you are determined to play the victim, regardless of the situation.Look, I could give two sh#@!ts about whether or not you've been wronged - you can have an opinion - you just can't be stupid. Unfortunately, that doesn't apply to most of the people on this site. Unless you know the textbook, front-to-back definitions of:1.) Harrassment2.) The FDCPA3.) What influences a credit bureau4.) Skip tracingThen please resist from responding. I'm a collector - a smart one, and one that knows the laws, rules and regulations because it's MY JOB. I can't fix a car, I don't know how to fly a plane, and I would be an inferior police officer or fireman. You know why? Because that's not my job, and I don't pretend to know how to do it. Unless you are a professional collector, then shut your mouths and open your minds. These people are paid to do a job - they don't get commission for calling wrong numbers. They don't get paid for making mistakes. They get paid for dealing with imbeciles and morons like the general public. Grow up, stop threatening lawsuits over every little item, and take care of your personal business.

I'm already visualizing the duct tape over your mouth. :rolleyes:

Paul...not defending CBE but they are licenced in every state. They are a Department of Education vendor....that is a first requirement.

On the flip side....I was a collector and i see violations in the posters complaints. They do violate the FDCPA....I have personal knowledge and they paid my ex husband good for it.
