The next day, I received letter from the same company dated the SAME day, X – XX -2017 stating, ” Based on recent phone with our AGENT, we understand YOU may have a dispute regarding an account with our CLIENT. ” It is reasonable at this point based on their own provided letters, Convergent a cknowledges an issue exists in the validity of this debt the same day. As of XXXX XXXX , 2017, my credit monitoring has indicated that this company has placed this debt to all XXXX credit bureau ‘s even though XXXX XXXX confirms notifying Convergent on or before the mailing date of these multiple letters.
