Just a note about this company, was contacted by them, actually my mom was, and i found out and called them back. These people are nasty and rude, the lady overtalked me and then hung up on me. The problem is solved, it was a bill for a hospital I visited in July in FL, my grandmother had just passed and i ended up staying with my mom for almost a month, then returned home. i was never once contacted by the hospital in an attempt to collect this debt nor was my mom. i had listed my mother's number because i was staying there and my PA address etc... then moved down here and found out they were harrasing my mom. Long story short the hsopital billed to the wrong medicare number and then sent the account to collections immediately. This CBCS Collections does not respond to faxes etc..everytime you would call them they would ask for your address, phone number etc..even if you had just spoken to them the day before...to this day the hospital supervisor has admitted the error and is resubmitting the bill to the right medicare number...however, to this day after 2 months i still have not received a copy of the bill after requesting such from CBCS. I called yesterday to update them as to what is going on, and they say i am lying, the hsopital wouldn't send me a bill etc... the hsopital billing supervisor told me to tell them to submit all further correspondence to the hospital and I relayed the message. this is an instance where I hounded the debt collector. Hopefully, things will be cleared up in 2-3 weeks, funny thing is I have other accounts with the same hospital where they actually reported the right insurance number. go figure. It is a company to be aware of...CBCS
