Consumer Complaint: Another collection company XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX sent me a notice in XXXX about a bill from XXXX XXXX XXXX. I sent them a letter requesting verification of the debt and the contract that was valid for the account they were attempting to collect on. I never received any further communication from the company. Yesterday, I look on my credit and there is a collection from SW Credit Systems LP for the same alleged account. I have not received any communication from them and as it stands, I am sure the same way the other company was unable to verify the debt, they are not able to verify either.
