So today I was sorting through my mail and came across this letter supposedly from EOS CCA. They were saying that I owe $190.76. Now I am the type of person that is fully aware of my credit status and what debt if any I have. No where in my records do I have any pending charges such as this amount. I would not have a 790+ credit score if I have any delinquent accounts out there.
After searching for a bit I came across this site: http://www.ripoffreport.com/r/EOS-CCA/Norwelll-Massachusetts-02061/EOS-CCA-Creative-Scammer-at-least-make-sure-the-account-exists-stupid-ripoff-artists-905584 where apparently other people received the same letter. I feel like I should report this somewhere but I’m not sure where. I can see how some people could get tricked into just paying this legitimate-looking bill.
I highly recommend that if you ever get a collections letter like this look up all of the phone numbers listed. All three phone numbers listed on the letter resulted in “Who is calling me?” type links and other links that feature a bunch of foreign characters in the link descriptions.
Have you ever received anything like this before? Has anyone ever tried to scam you? Tell us your story by commenting below.
