Consumer Complaint: I had a few collections on my credit report and after I looked into them, to find out what they were about, ( XXXX XXXX ) I found out the address they had was an address I was at for a very short period of time. I never knew I owed money and after calling the original creditor ( XXXX XXXX ) I found out they indeed did not have my correct address and she also mentioned they had the wrong number for me at the time. I was told they would remove the collection from my credit report if I paid the collection agency ( Around XXXX XXXX ). I called the collection agency ( Transworld Systems ) and told then what I was told by XXXX XXXX billing dept and they sad ” sure if they ( XXXX ) agreed to remove it we can ”. On XXXX XXXX I paid Transworld for both of the collections ( One for {$70.00} and the other for {$230.00 } ). I, after this filed a dispute with the credit bureaus because the collections show as paid but not removed. I received the dispute results from XXXX the collection company is still not removing it.
