Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: Sydicated Office Systems LLC and Central Financial Control are attempting to collect on a medical debt that is not mine from 2012. When I asked for verification of debt with their company on letter head and my signature, they sent me billing info and hospital admitting information for an infant that is not mine. I ‘m not sure if they have combined my billing and this other person ‘s billing together. I have asked this company to remove all information from my credit report from all credit bureaus because the debt does not belong to me.
