Consumer Complaint: Previously contacted company and the credit bureaus to remove negative information. Jefferson Capital ( debt buyer/third party collection agency ) was unable to validate this debt for {$950.00} to the credit bureaus or to me personally because it does not belong to me. They continuously harass me, reporting this negative information, and deliberately destroying my credit information. XXXX previously filed an investigation and due to no proof ; they deleted it from my credit file. However. I just found out today ( XXXX XXXX,2017 ) that this debt buyer ( original creditor -XXXX XXXX ) once again reported this alleged debt with XXXX and is being reported again. This is a direct violation of FCRA and FDCPA.
