Product: Other debt

Issue: Written notification about debt

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: I had a XXXX account many years ago and closed it down. I was given some charges after the fact without notification. They sold it without notifying m e to Jefferson Capital Systems. After that, interest began to accrue without my knowledge. It grew to {$310.00} as of 3 days ago when I found out about it on my credit karma report.
It has been over 3 years since they filed it. I ‘ve never received a call or letter. I also ca n’t contact Jefferson Capital Systems. Their online site only solicits messages from corporate interests and ignored my messages. I ‘ve tried to contact them through any # or email or site I could find, but it is impossible.
I ‘ve never had an otherwise unpaid payment as per my his tory. I had a student loan which I paid in full before the end of graduating, so I do n’t want this to have a negative effect on my limited credit
