Consumer Complaint: Contacted this company on XXXX XXXX about a couple of negative items I found on my credit report and came to found out that they are medical bills from ER visits and informed me that I have no knowledge of these since I already have insurance and these ERs are not close by or in network of my insurance and requested to see copies of what they have. I got hang up on and disputed that with the credit bureaus. This company is committing fraud and very unprofessional, I received finally this month a copy from XXXX of what looks like a made up bill with no info on it.
