Consumer Complaint Submission

Product: I do not know

Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: I have tirelessly tried to resolve this matter with this collection company but to no avail. I found this company had reported an account to my credit report which I believed was an invalid debt not belonging to me. I sent them by certified return receipt mail a debt validation letter dated XXXX XXXX, 2017, which they conveniently ignored. Concurrently when I disputed the item with the credit repositories, I was told that the debt collection company responded back to them affirming that this account was valid. I am appalled that this company continues to violate my rights and refuses to delete the account despite not being able to provide the original debt instrument.
