Date Received: 2017-08-09

Product: Medical debt

Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: I have two different collection companies trying to collect on the same debt. The companies are Transworld Systems Inc. and XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX. The debt collection is for a medical bill I owe XXXX XXXX XXXX Medical Center in XXXX WA. The amount is {$200.00}. I called the medical center but they could not help because the amount I owed had been turned over to XXXX XXXX XXXX. XXXX XXXX said they were getting a lot of calls about this same issue. XXXX XXXX forwarded my call to another person and I left a message for them to call me on XX/XX/XXXX. They called me back on XX/XX/XXXX and ask that I fax everything to them and XXXX XXXX XXXX collections would not call me or collect from me until something was resolved but that Transworld might call me because they could not stop them from calling me. I faxed them the information on XX/XX/XXXX. I faxed them the ” invoice ” from XXXX XXXX XXXX and the collection letter and invoice XXXX XXXX XXXX Medical Center that Transworld System sent me showing the same account number and same dollar amount. I do n’t mind paying what I owe, but I am not going to pay it twice and I do not want not paying one and paying the other to effect my credit rating. Also if I had not been paying attention, this might have got paid twice and I would not want that happening to someone else.
