Do you have any other specific information about eBay and their location? My search for them will be more accurate.

I'm not quite sure, like in the earlier forums, I saw someone said that they would send a copy to eBay and make sure how the letter got to them. But when I got onto, there is no contact information, so I just wanted to find a way to contact eBay and find out why I owe them money and did they really forward this case to that Bureau of Collection Recovery. This is a total shock for me because I've only went to for like 2-3 times, I never knew that eBay needs to create an account, I just don't know anything about eBay and suddenly, they tell me that I owe them money. It's just crazy!

I also recently received a letter re: a $40.10 debt to e-bay. I have NEVER done business with e-bay: used BCRs instructions to pay e-bay on-line, does'nt work cuz I don't have an e-bay acct or password. Am listing this as a total scam, hope that the inventors of this are kidnapped by aliens!!!!!

I'm so glad to see all of these people had a problem also. I received a letter claiming I owed At&t Wireless money. I NEVER had an account with At&T Wireless. I now have an attorney on this case.

my dad got a letter from the "bureau of collection recovery", saying we owed cingular, and if we didn't send them a letter disputing the bill within 30 days, they would consider it valid.

we have never recieved communication from cingular themselves regarding this debt. my dad freaked out and gave it to me to deal with.

i immediately got the feeling that something wasn't right. they have called here several times and harassed my parents, and communication by phone has been almost impossible because we couldn't understand their foreign accents.

the letter is dated 8/16, dad handed me the letter on 9/13 (gee, thanks dad). so theres only 3 more days until they "consider the debt valid".

why i think this is a scam:
1. no real letterhead or official stationery
2. immediate demand of payment
3. 30 days until we consider the debt "valid" seems a bit odd
4. no itemization of the charges
5. no official cingular logos
6. no contact information for cingular
7. i doubt a huge company like cingular would need a tiny company in MN to collect their bills
8. harassing phone calls
9. when we do talk to them on the phone, we can't understand their foreign accents
10. no communication from cingular about this
11. i looked up the business online and found at least three different phone numbers different from the ones in the letter
12. also while looking online i discovered that the business was started on 3/3/05. a business that young is a bit suspicious.

i am going to send them a *polite* letter disputing this debt, as well as contact the BBB.

If your creditor has reported your account wrongly, you can contact the credit bureau and submit all the documents of your payments to them. Then the bureau will investigate and they will rectify the incorrect entries if any.

Some errors might occur on the part of credit bureau also. Few members of this forum have found some discrepancies in their credit report and it seems that the bureau has mistaken with the entries. In that case, you have to contact credit bureau too, to fix it up. Check the discussion here ??? itscore.html

For any more information, feel free to ask in the forum.

I too recieved a collection letter from this people for an AT&T account I never had. They are rude on the telephone and ask for SSN to verify you owe them. DUHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Section 809 of Fair Debt Collection Act will take care of these people. Tie them up in paperwork. If you never had an account demand a copy of your contract. Contact your state Bureau of Consumer Protection with a copy of there letter and your write dispute. This will let them know you mean business.

i think most of you out there r looking for an excuse not to pay your bills, any excuse, or any way to place a blame on anyone but yourselves for being irresponsible.
read your contracts, and remember what you agree to
get things in writing and remember a bill is a bill
and a service is a service, arm yourselves with knowledge and do not run from your bills, face them head on and commit to a positive resolution. most every one is a good person in this world. don't ruin your name and credit. be smart and make wise decisions
and please do not pawn your debt on others. own up and
do what is right.
