Consumer Complaint: I was contacted over a year ago about this particular debt! I contacted debt collector at that time to get info on what debt was. The company only new the company they collected for so I contacted them about the debt. This company that I contacted did n’t know anything about it, and they did n’t even have my name on file! They told me to file fraud report with police and I did with XXXX XXXX sheriff ‘s office. I had n’t heard anymore until X/X/ 17 when I received another letter from another collection agency wanting to collect for the same co. I again called the company who supposedly wanted money and again they showed no record of me and of coarse no money owed from me. This is showing up on my credit report and it is false, I am listed with collection agency for no reason.
