Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: I XXXX XXXX believe in the credit reporting system, but there are several issues that need to be addressed by the Federal Trade Commis sion ( FTC ) and the C onsumer Financial Protection Bureau ( CFPB ) to correct the debt collection process, and the abuses that can harm a persons credit ratings without legal standing. A debt collection agency known a s Portfolio Recovery Associates, LLC ( PR A ) has posted several items of collection against me personally that can no longer be enforced by lawsuit within the state of New York. The creditors themselves deleted the original items from my credit reports since their existence became obsolete based upon the Fair Credit Reporting Act ( FCRA ) 7-year rule applying to outdated deb ts. Portfolio Recovery Associates ( PRA ) has no standing to attempt to collect on debts that are no longer enforceable within my state of residence, not reportable on credit by FCRA guidelines. PRA has posted and continues to post on my credit bureaus collections for the following outdated accounts : XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX ( ORIGINAL HOLDERS OF XXXX XXXX BANK ACCOUNTS ) This means th at PRA is posting the same accounts twice Attachments of all of these collections are attached. PRA showed no physical proof of attachment that they were in possession of purchasing these debts, or approval from XXXX XXXX that they had permission to collect on said debts. PRA collection the information on these accounts through a debt-pooling arrangement that should be deemed illegal at some point by the FTC.

PRA has no other recourse but to delete all references on all collections with each credit reporting agency, and to send a letter on each case that the information has been purged. I will submit an additional complaint with the Office of Attorney General, state of New York to investigate illegal collection practices such as those procured by PRA against New York residents.
