Looks like this scam is hitting Oregon now, since I just got the letter today and the report immediately before mine is from a town 50 miles up the road. West Bay Acquisitions is claiming I owe $19.99 on a video rented on 4/27/2009. This is a fraudulent charge with no supporting detail. nFrom what I can see all over the internet, this is either a scam run by West Bay Acquisitions, or Hollywood Video doctored their books before going out of business to make their accounts receivable appear higher than they were (in which case, West Bay was scammed into buying the proceeds of the supposed outstanding debt). Whatever… in any case, I do not owe this money. nI’ll be filing reports with the FTC, the BBB, and the Rhode Island and Oregon Attorney Generals.
