Commercial Investigations / Like issues with CII
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.
SEE ALSO from the BBB site:
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.
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.
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$
FOR LAUGHS OR to JUST FEEL a bit BETTER:
GOOGLE CAN BE YOUR FRIEND!

IF you cut and pasted the above link you might have to click on the link under did you mean? Then click on the street view. GUESS WHAT!!! You see a two story building and it is a UPS STORE.
In my part of the country a suite of 441 would mean that you are on the 4th floor. That is impossible in a two story building.
Have fun! as much as they investigate you, with google or other search engines you can investigate them!
