Consumer Complaint: My Complaint is against the Collection Bureau of Kansas who also goes by the possible alias? of XXXX XXXX XXXX Attorney at Law. I have been having trouble with that office for years ie complaints to XXXX, BBB, local courts and now have taken a step to contact the Missouri Attorney General as well as the Kansas Attorney General. The complaints are from a-z ie continuous and overwhelming phone calls from that office a few years ago to now having a judgement on my credit that has now effected my opportunity to get a lease on a townhome. I decided I would submit another complaint through here in hopes to help other families that he has had a negative impact on and to hopefully draw in an investigation on what goes on in his office. I have been in communication with his office too and have had very poor Customer Service as well as dishonesty and a hint of corruption. His office says they do not buy debt but XXXX XXXX XXXX ( XXXX ) who is now XXXX XXXX ( XXXX ) says he bought the debt when the hospital was bought out and it is out of their hands to help. I would like to see an investigation into this company and its practices. There are so many details I could share via documents, notes from conversations and emails that point to an office that is causing more questions than answers. His office has now garnished more than the original amount owed too. Is there not something that CPB can do to change how Medical Debt is handled and how collection agencies like the Collection Bureau of Kansas aka XXXX XXXX XXXX operates or if he can even legally operate in this way?
