C&T is investigating a potential class action lawsuit against CBE Group, Inc. and CBE Companies (“CBE”), a debt collection agency, relating to their practices in collecting and settling debts. Specifically, reports and research indicate that CBE may be charging individuals who are attempting to settle debts with CBE by making payments through CBE’s website with an additional servicing fee at the point of payment. This service fee has been reported to be charged when debtors are attempting to pay off their debts using CBE’s payment portal on its website, and C&T has learned that upwards of $10 per transaction has been charged. CBE’s conduct in charging this service fee may be in violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and other federal and state law.
If you have made a payment on CBE’s website relating to a debt and you have been charged an additional amount as a service fee in conjunction with your payment, please contact us using the link on this page.
