Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: Some years ago, I had my purse stolen. I reported it to the police department when I resided in Florida but whomever the person was still open things in my name and I did n’t find out until later. At that time when I got phone calls, I advised on the issue and sent a copy of the police report to whoever called back then. I have relocated and have no clue where the report is. It appears whatever creditor it was could n’t collect so they made money by selling the unauthorized debt and I was never sent anything before hand or before this was placed on my report per FCBA guidelines.
