Consumer Complaint Submission

Product: Other debt

Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: Professional Account Management continues to try to collect a debt from two ” unpaid parking tickets ” on behalf of the XXXX Government, which are invalid. These two parking tickets were paid in 2016, and the checks that I sent to the DC government at that time were cashed : one for {$40.00}, and one for {$50.00}. In one instance, DC sent me a notice that the amount they received was not received on time and wanted to collect even more money from me. I contacted them with the bank information showing that it was cashed within their time frame, and had that false claim removed. However, both tickets still appear as ” unpaid ” according to Professional Account Management, with a notice I received in a letter on Friday.

I have contacted them ( Professional Account Management ) in the past with the phone number provided in a different letter ( ( XXXX ) XXXX ) which reflected a different amount, and told them this is false information ; however, they argued about it on the phone, and have again sent another letter, this time the amounts are increased.

Also, in this letter, it shows only one citation number, but then shows that additional money is due (? ). It reads as such : account # : Citation # : XXXX Amount Due : {$60.00} Amount Due all citations : {$130.00} They then threaten enforcement activity by impoundment of a vehicle if there are ” two or more delinquent citations. ” That ‘s convenient – is that why they are trying to collect on multiple amounts with only one cited?

Either the XXXX Government is committing fraud/extortion, or Professional Account Management is committing fraud/extortion. Either way, there needs to be some federal intervention of this phony debt, and the collection agency ‘s collection practices. I do not intend to pay either party any more money.
