Consumer Complaint: I started receiving credit alerts from credit reporting agencies on or abou t XXXX XXXX 2017 reg arding negative actions. Once I researched I found a collection agency ‘parked ‘ a medical collection to all XXXX of the major credit reporting agencies. The debt was for {$94.00}. Prior to the alerts I never received calls or mail notices regarding this debt. The company did not give me an opportunity to dispute the debt before ‘parking ‘ the debt to the credit bureaus. Since I did not want the negative information on my credit file I paid the debt. After I paid the debt on XXXX XXXX 2017 the company then sent me the notice of debt with the amount due and dispute language. The company violated regulations improperly reporting the debt to the credit bureaus before notifying me and giving me the opportunity to dispute the debt. The collection company wrongfully damaged my credit. The collection phone # ‘s are XXXX and XXXX .
