Phone: (877) 230-1314

I know this is a bit long but it can provide lots of useful information if you are being hassled by Commercial Investigations or any other Collection agency. Be informed, and know what it takes to protect yourself if you have to go that far.
Our personal experience with Commercial Investigations of Van Nuys California is much the like all the complaints found on /link removed/ https://www.complaintsboard.com, and http://800notes.com with regards to CII. If you are having issues with this company you may need to take the following actions and file complaints with the proper organizations.
FILE A COMPLAINT
https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/ File a complaint with the FTC.
http://www.la.bbb.org/Home.aspx File a complaint with the Better Business Bureau in LA.
156 complaints as of 5/9/2009
Then contact your HOME state attorney general's office and file a complaint in their office.

BECOME VERSED ON SOME LAWS
You may also wish to become versed in the Fair Debt Collections Protection Act as well as the Fair Credit Reporting act. Wikipedia has some good links for this.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_Credit_Reporting_Act
http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Can_a_collection_agency_sue_you
Some states might have additional requirements such as the agency must be licensed in the state in order to collect. So check your state web site or find an attorney.
CONTACT AN ATTORNEY.
http://www.naca.net/
http://www.fairdebtlawyers.com/
http://www.abanet.org/
http://www.westopdebtcollectors.com/
Yellow pages or google would work as well.
CONSIDER A TAP on your line.
ONLY AFTER YOU CHECK THE LAW FOR YOUR LOCATION. Again you might want to consult with an attorney. But Radio Shack sells a phone tap for about 70$

    THIS COMPANY IS A SCAM!! STAY AWAY! They will steal money from you for bogus lawsuits and collect from customers without disclosing to you they collected!! This scam is doing business under many names and there is a licensed CA attorney behind it, Randy Chang license # 237618, dba commercial investigations, dba forensicforwarder, dba forensic case management, dba rumson, bolling & associates, dba joseph, steven & associates. If you have been scammed too file a complaint with the CA state bar and the ftc! at http://ftc.gov! They do not have a valid corporation to even do business in CA, it's been suspended and the wont disclose a physical address. The address on their websites is a ups/ fed-ex mail drop box. They have over 300 complaints combined with the Better Business Bureau and a F rating. This company breaks the law daily, steals money, and tries to imply intimidation tactics to anyone who asks for their money back and threathens to go to the authorities. There are dozens of lawsuits against them throughout the US. Contact the ftc, CA state bar association, the Ventura and Los Angeles County District Attorneys office. Lets shut them down!

    soopeela,
    you do not know me nor do I know you. I do not have to defend myself to you but I will openly say here on this forum when I last checked my credit score back in 07 it was in the neighborhood of 750-810, not bad hugh?

    Just because somebody has a collection agency that is after them does it mean they are a dead beat. After all, not all collection agencies are bad. I have a friend that owns a collection agency and this friend actually gave me insight on how to deal with a collection agency. I searched the BBB on my friends agency and it has a satisfactory BBB rating, and I could not find any negative comments on my friends agency on the net.

    If I try and find your personal information it comes up blank. So I tell you what. How about you give all of us on this forum all your information. For the most part you sound like a lovely person and I would love to take you out to eat at a nice establishment. My Treat!

    Now, something tells me from your response that you are in fact one of the names I have listed in my complaint or in the very least you work for CII, or some other collection agency. Sorry your comments speak volumes about your stance.
