Consumer Complaint: On XX/XX/XXXX, I received correspondence from Diversified Consultants, Inc. ( DCI ) that I had debt in the amount {$990.00} for failing to pay XXXX. On XX/XX/XXXX I called DCI to figure out what this was about and they redirected me to XXXX. I called XXXX that same day and I was told I owed them {$990.00}. I informed them I have n’t had XXXX since XX/XX/XXXX when I moved from XXXX XXXX XXXX, XXXX XXXX, NJ. My account was paid in full and disconnected when I moved. I moved in with family to XXXX XXXX XXXX and have not had services in the past two years. I was transferred to a different department who asked me if the debt could be for failure to return equipment. I told them, No because I returned it myself. They are advised me to write a dispute letter which I did ( all in the same day ) to DCI. DCI responded a couple of weeks ago with a simple letter that the debt was proven to be mine. The letter was absent of any information as to how they came up with their findings. If XXXX does n’t know where the debt came from how do they?
