Consumer Complaint: Diversified Consultants be gan reporting a XXXX debt to the consumer credit reporting agencies around XX/XX/XXXX . The debt of {$260.00} was reported as being a delinquent beginning in XX/XX/XXXX . Beside the fact that I owe no debts to XXXX , there has been quite an issue concerning the collection by Diversified. First, I was never given written notification that they were collecting on this debt. My first time hearing of it was when I saw it on my credit report, too late to dispute it before it affected my score. I have reached out to Diversified since, disputing the debt. I have also disputed the debt through the individual credit bureaus to which it is being reported. Diversified has verified to the bureaus that the information is accurate. And to me they sent a bill to prove the legitimacy of the debt. A bill with a total much different from the one they are reporting. The bill theyve sent me is for {$350.00}, while the reported balance is {$260.00}. This is not to say Im claiming that I owe more than what they are reporting, but rather the opposite their own validation documents dont match what theyre reporting to the bureaus. It doesnt seem like this debt collector puts much effort into confirming their own reporting and actions.
