Check Processing Bureau / CPB Letter claiming bounced check
I received a letter in the mail last night from CPB indicating that the letter received was a legal service to collect an unpaid debt of $148. 00 to a pizza place in 2001. I did call the (888) number and spoke to a man who explained that I owe money for a bounced check. I of course had many questions for him which he could not answer; How much was the check writen for? What is the bank name on the check? Why have I never been notified prior to this IF I bounced a check? He told me I would have to go to my bank and ask for a copy of the check. I explained I am not a member of that bank no being over 7 years ago. Nor, should I have to do his leg work. I asked what logic is used to come up with $148? His answer was late fees. He then told me he would take my debit number for $50.00 and clear the issue. I told him, "Tell you what, you send me a copy of this supposed check..." and he hung up on me.
I have in the past 15 minutes, performed research on CPB. Not good, may I add. I will NOT be paying this claimed amouont due.
