Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: Back in XX/XX/XXXX & XX/XX/XXXX, I settled all accounts I had in collections by paying off balance agreements in full via check and a couple online thru a debt collector ( who does n’t have a positive reputation ) XXXX XXXX who sold my info to XXXX XXXX … a GA debt collector firm … both companies involved in major law suits in XX/XX/XXXX and XX/XX/XXXX due to deceptive debt collection practices. I fell victim to a XXXX XXXX wage garnishment myself during that time along with paying off other balances in full. These were all credit cards from roughly XX/XX/XXXX that went delinquent. USince XX/XX/XXXX, I heard nothing from anyone because they were paid off and settled. I am sure you guys know that you guys led to XXXX XXXX ‘s demise and the law firm closed in XX/XX/XXXX. Two of those partners though have opened a law firm in XXXX, GA under their names Cooling and Winters. Today, XX/XX/XXXX, I get a letter in the mail today in regards to a XXXX XXXX XXXX account claiming I owe over {$2000.00} when that account was settled and paid for back in XX/XX/XXXX. That credit card went delinquent back in XX/XX/XXXX but again I rectified it in XX/XX/XXXX by paying a settled amount a little under {$1000.00}. I called the law firm and the woman I spoke with claimed that XXXX XXXX never notified them my case was closed and then she began to ask me about two other accounts that were settled back in XX/XX/XXXX as well. She brought up XXXX XXXX ‘s closing and how their old files were transferred … Of course if this company is own by two prior affiliates. I have the letter I received today. The woman I talked to today did give me XXXX XXXX contact info so I can call them and ask about my closed cases. She said it ‘s possible where they made the mistake of not properly closing my files. I plan on going to my bank in the morning to get copies of the checks used to pay XXXX XXXX and whatever other payment info. These are debts I do not owe because they were paid over 4 years ago. How can this be rectified? I have also filed a complaint to GA ‘s Attorney General.
