“I received a mailer from the same company mentioned above – Consumer Benefits Division.
Not sure if the scam has been played yet. But a couple of folks I spoke with couldn’t state what they were a “Division” of!
These folks already had my credit card info. I may have messed up by giving them my SSN. Didn’t give them anything else.
Talked a second time w/ “Gabriel”, the one handling my case; he stated that the company would be able to “waive” the upfront payment of $800 by debiting several of the credit cards, you know, the ones I’m trying to pay down.
When I spoke w/ Gabriel this morning, I asked for mailing information; he sort of danced around the request, asking what I would want to contact CBD for by mail. I went on to state that I was concerned about debiting my credit cards and about them having my SSN while I had nothing from CBD. He then went into a lengthy, well-rehearsed defense of the company.
I ended the conversation by stating that I needed time to think about it and that I would be in touch. He was agreeable w/ that. I did a web search about 1 1/2 weeks ago and found the webpage. I didn’t save it; but this morning when I tried to search it again, it didn’t show up at all. So, another questionable piece to this puzzle! With luck, I might have dodged the radar on this one! I’ll watch my credit cards and my other credit info closely for awhile. Thanks for having this web page for the consumer!”
