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:


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.



posting for subject 8 your a numb skull who most likely went to law school and failed or could not pass the bar exam. although you sound as if a lawyer is a part of your family and you are not one yourself. If you are an atty I would hate to be your client. you are in my opinion a jacka**:p

only if you've talked to the consumer once, but fdcpa allows calls every 2 hours if a person doesn't answer their phone

Absolutely correct!

I've been receiving phone calls from "Marietta, GA" for a couple of weeks now. The number left a message today for me, saying it was the CBE Group, so I Google'd it. I've never heard of the place, and as far as I know, I do not owe any debts. Even if I did, I'm an unemployed nineteen-year-old living with my parents. I just find it interesting that the caller ID is from Georgia, but apparently the agency is based in Iowa. I live in Minnesota.

well to both #93 and is not allowed per the FDCPA to call every two fact there is a provision that states pretty clearly.

calling continuously in an attempt to annoy and irritate is considered harrassment.

so stick that in your fuse box,and get back to the phones losers.

Actually, multiple attempts are allowed as long as no contact is made and they are not excessive. The excessive part is open for interpitation (sp?) and can go either way based on the judge.

well i guess it is open for interpretation.but i have had friends called 10-12 times a day.that seems excessive in my book.however that is a good point as each state might look at it differently as well.btw what got me was the humanoids who spouted that never specified.i know some bottomfeeders(this one for example)do call multiple times even after they talked to someone that day.

CBE is far from a bottomfeeder.
