Consumer Complaint: I received a notice from my credit monitoring service in XXXX 2017 that my credit score had dropped. When I reviewed my credit reports, there was a company BYL Management Services LLC claiming I owed a collection debt in the amount of {$1600.00} to them. I ‘ve never heard of this company and have never received any kind of communication from this company about any debt owed to them. I tried to dispute this information with the credit reporting agencies and my disputes of returned with no change. I still have not received anything from this company that I owe them any money or that I ever had an account that went into collections. This is unfair and deceptive as I was never notified that I had a debt owed or a debt that went into collections. I was never sent any kind of written notice from this company to be able to dispute the debt and get validation of the debt claimed to be owed prior to this company placing a collection account on all XXXX of my credit reports, and even still after this being placed on my credit have not heard from this company or been sent any information regarding this debt. This has negatively impacted me, my credit score on all XXXX credit bureaus, and financially because I will be denied extension of credit because if this. According to the FDCPA this is a direct violation of my rights.
