This number has called our business phones for several days 2-3/times per day. No answer. Hang up. So after I searched some and found out it was a debt collector, I assumed a past employee had given them our number. So I called back, using a different line from what they had. Gave them the main line and they told me the name. I told them my story and asked them to stop calling!! They said they would.
This number showing CBE Group is calling our work phone. We don't have a dish network account, nor do we have any outstanding debt!! They only thing I can think of is a past employee used our phone number rather than their own. But the people on the other end don't even ask for someone specific. We answer- they here it's a business and hang up.
Omg these freaks keep freakin calling me!!! It is soooo annoying!!! They called me like ten times in the past three days!!! They need to stop!!!
Anna, CBE Group does not *need* to care about your DNC registration, since like all non-sales callers it is exempt. You and Sarah can revoke call permission any time on paper, generally the best way to make it stick. Send a cease-comm notice via USPS Certified with return card.
If the collector thinks you owe something, wait for the required dunning letter. CBE has a poor enough reputation that you should not hesitate to dispute the claim and request validation, again via CMRR letter. Within the same letter you can revoke some or all call permission as you like. The FTC and many consumer watchdogs explain more about these letters.

CBE IS CALLING ALL THE TIME STARTS AT 8 AM BY 9:30 AM ALREADY CALLED 4X. I JUST HAD SURGERY . AND DON'T FEEL LIKE TALKING TO A COMPUTER OR ANYONE ELSE FOR THAT MATTER. TOLD THEM TO STOP CALLING WHAT CAN I DO I'M ON THE,
DO NOT CALL LIST DON'T SEEM TO CARE.
They've been calling our office every day (even the weekend) and there is never anyone there when we answer. I just called the number back and the person they're looking for is someone we've never heard of. I explained that they're calling a place of buiness that doesn't know this Phillip person. They apologized and said they'd take our number out of their system. Hope it works.
Supposing to be Dish Network collection services. Totally a scam.
CBE Group Inc debt collector not for anyone here
My husband answered and they said "please hold" so he hung up.
My office gets multiple calls a day from this number. There is never anyone there, no answer when we pick up. Would tell them not to call again but don't get the opportunity since no one is there when we answer.
Calls several times a day and hangs up after 4 seconds.... I have records on my Internet phone system that shows each call and length. I figure it might be a medical collection agency dragging their snake bellies on the ground... why they don't answer or leave a message I don't know but I am going to find out with a little help from the FTC.
