Issue: Written notification about debt
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: I recently pulled all XXXX of my credit reports. I noticed XXXX collection accounts from AFNI. I called and spoke with a rep who tried to inform me that I was indeed liable for the date. When I asked them to send me validation that indeed the debt is mines she informed me she would and I provided her with my email address along with my mailing address. 30 days have passed and I have yet to receive anything. I contact them again on XXXX / XXXX / 17 and was informed that the information had been mailed. She was unable to provide me with an exact date. After asking for them to remove the information from my credit since it was not able to be validated she gave me every excuse on why she could not delete it and ask for payment again for the 3rd time.
