Consumer Complaint: XX/XX/17 : Noticed a collection was reported to my XXXX credit report by a collection agency called : Convergent Outsourcing. I never received any letters or correspondences from Convergent Outsourcing. XX/XX/17 : called the Convergent Outsourcing collection agency to inquire about the collection account they reported to my credit report. I provided them both the account number & my social security number & told them I had never received any correspondences from them & had no idea about the collection. Their response was they do n’t have my information on me available. I specified that I am in process of a financing transaction and as the result of this negative reporting I ca n’t proceed with obtaining financing. I requested them to remove the collection account since they do n’t have any information on me. They said they cant do that at this time. They provided me with supervisor ‘s email & asked me to email a supervisor which I did and made the request, but the supervisor never responded back.
