ERC – CFPB Complaint

By on October 30, 2017
Consumer Complaint Submission

Date Received: 2017-07-15T00:00:00

Product: Other debt

Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: I received a letter from ERC dated XXXX XXXX, 2017 with a third parties name on it ( XXXX XXXX ) claiming that I owed their company for an alleged debt. The letter also stated that I had 30 days to dispute the validity of this debt. I sent ERC a certified letter and they received it within the 30 day time frame. However the same day they received the letter they placed this item on my credit report.


I disputed the validity of this debt, and I requested validation of this debt per Texas Finance Code Section 392.202 which requires a debt collection agency or credit bureau to provide the alleged debtor with specific information concerning their debt.


Per this requirement ERC must delete this trade line if they do not have sufficient time to complete an investigation to validate this debt in 30 days according to Sec. 392.202 ( d ) ( 1 ) It has been almost 60 days since they received my certified letter and they are refusing to comply with the Texas Finance Code. I was also unable to locate a surety bond for this company, which is required in my state for them to collect on this alleged debt.


Please note I am fully prepared to pursue my rights for the harm this inaccuracy has done to me pursuant to Texas Finance Code Sec. 392.403.
