This company contacted my mother to get ahold of me (no clue how they got her cell phone number!), said I owed $4,500 on a car I let go back last year (repo) and if I paid $400 by Monday (a 2 day time frame) they would settle with $2,000 and $200 a month payments. They stated if I refused to pay $400 by Monday that they would have a “uniformed officer” serve me court papers at my place of business Tuesday or Wednesday and that they would begin garnishing my wages from my check until the total $4,000 was paid... I done research on this company ALL weekend stressing out.. Come Monday Patrick ** from CMS financial called to see if I was paying and I refused because I found out this whole company is FRAUD...
He said a uniformed person would be out by 12 or 1pm Monday or Tuesday to my job to serve me.. They had a Local number call me ACTING like an officer saying they had a summons for court and if I miss my court date I will get a failure to appear. The number they “called from” was a FAX number. I’m sure they used a random number app to generate the local number to my state to make it look like I really had a sheriff calling me. I called the sheriff's office and I had no warrants or papers to be served. I never got served at my work!! I called these cowards and harassed them like they did me. This is no legit place I promise you!! Don’t let them fool you!! They will not do anything at all, trust me... This is a rigged UPS store trying to scam people. The same woman and man kept hanging up on me. Pay them NOTHING!

I get a call from CMS that I’m being sued for $3,000 for a car that I co signed 6 years ago. The car belonged to my parents. It was in their name not mine. I wasn’t even with them when they got the car. I told the guy that called that they had made some kind of mistake. I had no credit history and no income at the time my parents got the car (no dealership will allow a co signed with no income or credit history). I said I wasn’t paying them anything and hung up!

These with CMS at first kept calling me from a 503 area code number saying something about a "loan" which I didn't apply for. I never answered their calls but listening to their messages that's what they said. So yesterday and today they called "private". I don't answer private calls. They left a message and when I heard their message they said I was being sued and I was getting served at my job or at my home. for a debt that I owe from over 10 yrs ago totaling $200 and they want to charge me $800 to settle, WTH. Or I will have to go to court and that will cost me over $2k. Of course I was scared and made arrangements with them. Asked him to send me the court papers, he said he couldn't and he didn't have. Sounded sketchy so I googled it and came across this... sounds like they use the same strategy on everyone and I will be canceling my payment method with them.

CMS called my family members asking about my personal information. Stated that I was in the process of being sued and that I needed to call them. I called and they threatened me with legal action that they would have a sheriff serve me papers if I didn't send a money order to them to stop the court proceedings. When I looked up the address it was a UPS store where they have a post office box and their address on their letterhead is a real estate company.

These so called debt collectors are bogus and use scare tactics to make fast money. They obtain information from Check 'n Go and other payday lenders INCLUDING social security numbers! They will skip trace and find possible relatives and harass them to get a hold of you. Once I contacted them and I quickly caught on to their ** collection techniques I called them out on it. Their response was “good luck apologizing to all your family because we are going to continue to harass them”. I continued to call them and they repeatedly put me on hold. Hem finally spoke to another low-life and he tried to bully me by saying “I pay my bills”, I told him, "Good for you. Now go fly a kite, I’m not paying you!" They laughed in the background because I’m on speaker phone.
He thought he be slick by calling me unemployed, I told him I am employed then he had the nerve to ask where? Haha good try but I have worked collections 15 years and know how to get information. I would never use lame scare tactics like “We have a case against you... and we are gonna serve you at your place of employment or residence” C'mon if you’re really going to take legal action do so don’t say you are... Who does that?? Lol. I’ve contacted several attorneys and was told to ignore them (which is hard, since they harass the crap out of you and your family). They are NOT real creditors! ONLY SCAMMERS!! Avoid them!!! Do not buy into their scare tactics!! If they threaten to serve you say “ok do so!” (They won’t.) They will eventually move on to their next potential victim!!

I received a phone call from a court processor threatening with serving me papers to my house or place of work to court. They included the local law enforcement agency as well. So, I call the number they gave me and they verify my information and it cost money. I call the payday loan company and they have no record of a payment. I reached out to one company before contacting Capital management Collection Services with an email today. I feel I was scammed out of a lot of money. This is not the right way to handle business. Please be careful of this company.

A guy named Brian called my mom asking for my address because he indicated he had some paperwork from my prior job he wanted to send me (I haven’t worked in a LONG while due to being 100% disabled Veteran) and left a phone number for me to call back. I called back and he addressed me by 1st name before I even explained why I was calling. He said I’m being served by the county courts and he wanted to “schedule” a time I would be home to hand me the paperwork. I asked him what paperwork was about. He said he didn’t know. He would need to transfer me I the paralegals unit.
I spoke with Lorraine ** who advised an account was opened before my CH7 BK was discharged and stated I am being sued and I need to pay. I advised her of the BK and filing date and she stated, "We can still come after you." I told her I will be contacting my lawyers and she breathed heavily into the phone sipped on something that made her choke and said “ok make sure you call me back today”. Ummmm no, I am not my lawyers will deal with this. #Scammers #Frauds #Slimy3rdPartyCompany

So this company called - first the ID said asset recovery, then goal structured solutions, I dont know which is which but a man called me from this number repeatedly. I picked it up and they said I owe a delinquent student loan, of course I wanted to act upon this so I asked what exactly is this regarding. They told me they could not tell me this info unless I gave them my SSN?!! I politely declined... but they kept calling, I was getting nervous and feared I'd be hit with something if I kept ignoring, so finally, I GAVE IN.
I told them my SSN over the phone (I know, I regret) then they told me it was a loan from 2012 - Turnstile Cap Management, I had no clue who this company was and it would be insane if I didnt make payments on anything since 2012. So I asked for more info but this seemed like it. I kept saying this must be a mistake. They stopped calling me and then recently I see that my credit score had dropped - THEY REPORTED A CHARGED OFF STUDENT LOAN. There is no record of this loan previous to them posting it on there. I keep trying to call them and I'm getting NOWHERE.

This company is horrible. They lie to you, tell you they are trying to help you out but all they are doing is screwing you more. My identity was stolen for $80,000 plus a truck and they did not care. Police reports and all I had to pay a settlement of $5600 dollars and according to them, they were doing me a favor… STAY AWAY FROM THEM!!!

A man whose name I did not catch called my work number and addressed me by my professional title. When I confirmed my name, he then identified himself as being with Capital Collection Management, LLC and asked me to confirm my date of birth or address. He gave me a phone number from the state of New York. He would not reveal any details about the purported debt without first obtaining my personal information. I asked that he send a mailing to whatever address he has in his record. We'll see what happens.

This company contacted me stating that a legal complaint in court was being filed against me for no payment on a old payday loan. They refused to validate the debit and afraid I tried to work with them. I later found out that the statute of limitations on the debt had expired; as well as the company I got the loan from no longer exists. They will not get another red cent from me. What they are doing is wrong. They purchased the debt and are profiting from scamming people who are unaware of their rights. Check your credit report and you will probably find the debt not listed.

For the past two months we've been getting phone calls from long distance numbers. They'd call and hang up. And every time I'd send the number to auto hang up they'd just call from a different number. Once in the mix I had answered and instead of saying hello I said, "Please stop calling me." And the guy on the phone told me to shut up and hung up again.
Well just yesterday they called my mother-in-law and told her they were trying to get a hold of my husband. The young lady (Jennifer) told her it was about a lawsuit so she told us to give them a call. We then call them at 3 PM and no one answers. The next day at 5 AM we get a call from a guy named Stevon **, asking for my husband. He said that he had debt owed and was willing to settle it down to 800 if he paid today. When we said we didn't have it he then said we could pay half today. When we again said we couldn't because of rent being due in 2 days he told us that on the 9th pay 300 and start a payment plan. (I'm now looking this place up while he's on the phone.) We asked him if we could make smaller payments and he got angry.
We asked him to verify that it was a real company and he said no, and transferred the call to his "boss" Ryan. My husband said he could pay 300 over the next month and the guy said no, it had to all be at once. He started saying they'd come to his work or our house, and then when my husband asked for something proving they weren't a scam he said, "Have fun at court," and hung up. He gave us a case number that wasn't real and everything.

I was contacted via phone by CMS regarding my debt. I set up a payment plan and expected to receive this agreement in written form. After 3 payments no letter confirming the agreement was received. I stopped payments to the company. I requested via voicemail to receive information and did not receive a call back. I called again during business hours requesting a mailing address to send a letter requesting such information. Ryan (a snotty supervisor) refused to provide me with a mailing address multiple times and refused to send me any documentation. Then before I ever got angry he rudely corrected me when I said the word "y'all" (I'm from Texas)! I told him have fun being reported because he is breaking federal law! DO NOT GIVE THESE MORONS A DIME OF YOUR MONEY!

Was called by them, long story short, I was threatened to have wages garnished, told I had a summons (which I called and there were none). Threatened to take my taxes...etc, etc. Pretty much the opposite of what a collection agency should do, going against pretty much ever debt collection law. At any rate, looked on credit report, was nothing on it from said debt. Nothing even matching the debt amount. When I had looked up everything, I called back told them there was nothing there. Told them I wouldn't pay. Told them if the debt was valid to send me a validation of debt (which was refused). Wouldn't give me an address, pretty much trying to extort money out of me.
Please if these people contact you or you talk to them and get what I got, EVEN if the debt is real, they can't threaten you with anything. PLEASE PLEASE report them to the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau. The more people that take 15 minutes to tell them their story, the more likely this place can be shut down. Here is the website to report these bad and illegal debt practices: **.

This company keeps calling and hanging up. We have no outstanding past-due debt. This is a slimy third party collector that tries to collect on dead debt (debt which exceeds statute of limitations). Any debt which exceeds the statute of limitations, which is four years in California is non-collectible, unless you are tricked into restarting the debt. If the debt were indeed valid it would show on your TRW.

They keep calling at all hours, and then when you call back, they tell you to verify all kinds of personal info, and can't give you an address to write to request a copy of original credit application and all charges that they have bought from written off or closed debt. They make it impossible to try and get them to quit calling without SSN and DOB, which who gives that to a stranger over the phone.

I received a letter from Capital Management Services, LP on the 6th of Nov 2011 that they have been engaged by Galaxy International Purchasing LLC on the 2nd of Nov 2011. I just sent a payment to another company on the 1st of Nov 2011 that was handling my account.
This makes the third time that Galaxy International Purchasing has changed accounts with three different companies for collections. I cannot pay anything until next month. It is wonderful how this company can make your life miserable concerning trying to pay an outstanding debt. I have to wait until Monday - 7th of Nov 2011 to see what transpired. I can't do anything on a Sunday afternoon.

Well, I'm getting phone calls and letters from this collection agency for some time now. They're trying to collect on a company that folded back in 2000 by the name of Providian Finance Corp. This bank had a large number of law suits dating back to 1995. The last letter I got was from a lawyer back in June 2000, saying that they folded and we are no longer required to pay any and all loans back. I wish I still had that letter. I only keep them for 5 years.
So, as of today, they are trying to collect on a debt on a bank that doesn't exist anymore and the account is over 11 years old.

On 1/4/10 at 8:11AM, I received a call from a woman wanting my husband. I said I was his wife and could I help her. She said she was calling about a $3000 debt owed to some bank I had never heard of. I stated as much and she said she would check. She then said "Disregard the call" and hung up on me. I called back and left 2 messages wanting an explanation and perhaps, an apology. Well, it just gets better. My husband has a message from her on his phone. Two days later, my 88-year old mother-in-law told us that early Monday morning, some lady called and browbeat her into giving out our numbers. I immediately called them and the first man transferred me before I could finish my sentence. A second man came on and kept interrupting me and treating me as if I was a criminal until I told him to shut up and listen.
He finally got my story straight and looked it up. He told me I had 2 accounts that had been paid in full, but that we did not have any debt and she had made a mistake. I told him I wanted her to be spoken to and that I would proceed with whatever actions I could take. I also said I would say that he eventually was helpful. My mother-in-law was afraid that there was some emergency. She felt she had to give our numbers, as the woman would not take no for an answer. She was very worried and upset. She has never owed anyone or been late on a bill, so she had never experienced the collection mentality.
