Consumer Complaint: I received a letter dated XXXX / XXXX /2017 from CCI Contract Callers Inc. regarding referenced account XXXX . However upon calling into the organization regarding this supposedly ( unpaid debt ) I came to find out this is a fraudulent claim after speaking with representative XXXX on XXXX / XXXX /2017 XXXX XXXX Arizona time. After reviewing online regarding ( XXXX XXXX ) the supposedly original account holder. This has been reported to various other organizations as a scam with thousands of other people receiving a letter from a debt collection agency for the SAME exact amount. XXXX XXXX has neither direct website nor phone number to contact the company itself. If you XXXX XXXX XXXX you will find the other thousands of complaints and reports of this fraudulent debt. We have never done business with this organization nor EVER ordered from this ( fake & fraudulent ) company. Having said all of this we are asking and hoping CFBP and assist us with getting this corrected. Per XXXX we are to mail a letter to them stating this is fraud. However we want to make sure this company processes this in the correct manner. We also want CFBP to know of this as it happening to thousands of other hard working Americans. The letter mailed to me has been attached for review and to make it easier to contact this particular collection agency. I have covered my personal info ( Name and address ) for protection purposes. The file number XXXX will pull the account with their institution.
