Collection Company Of America / Recent collection call received, with little information given

I received a phone call from CCA requiring payment of a certain amount or court action would be taken. They indicated attempts at contacting several months ago, but nothing recent and no hard-copy statement received for months. I made a payment, however have since become nervous about this finding out this companies status in the scam / complaint and rip-off world. As far as I know the actual account for their client is with a $0 balance, and am in the process of confirming that. In the conversation it was repeatedly noted that I was trying to back out of paying anything, that being the furthest from the truth (just trying to get more information regarding the account, as I had not received any correspondence of any form for months). I was told that they were not allowed to mail or email information for privacy reasons and the only contact that I was allowed was a partial name "Mr Gomez" and local office phone number, no extension, etc.

I hope this helps in developing a case against these unprofessional firms and occurences.

    Phone Jockey,

    Before you lecture someone else, you need to go back to school and learn proper grammar.

    It should be, " YOU'RE (not your) a deadbeat, pay YOUR (not for) bill". Duh. You're the deadbeat.

    Beware of the tactics these guys CCA use, I have been harassed by them for the last 2 months, not debt owed here, just a rookie manager using the internet for research, I guess he believes everything he sees on the internet. Anyways, I have a receipt of delivery for a cease and desist letter sent to CCA.
    At this point I am recording each call from Jeffery Gonzales and have filed the first of 4 complaints, FCC FTC, US Education Department, attorney general. Very rude, unprofessional and obviously of questionable morals.

    Most of the people working at CCA are either just plain dumb, fresh out of jail on parole, or a welfare mom. They don't teach the laws to any of the collectors and don't care if they know them as long as they get your money, so don't give in to them. Call Dept of Ed yourself inform them CCA is violating your rights under FDCPA and request to speak to them only Dept of Ed will place a warning on CCA and hopefully enough people will so then CCA will lose the contract to collect for Dept of Ed. Because they don't have enough manners nor education to collect, half the collectors there violate third party disclosure on every call they make and are still there cause they called that one person who got scared and gave up there money. If you truly want to take care of your defaulted student loan call Dept of Ed yourself at 1-800-621-3115
