Consumer Complaint: I received a letter in the mail from a company called CCI ( Contract Callers Inc. ) on XX/XX/XXXX stating that I owe {$130.00} from a default consumer. I did not owe anyone any money and I have great credit ratings in the XXXX ‘s. I called this company and they said that I owe a company called XXXX XXXX the money for not paying them. I advised that I do not owe them and it was a scam and they were trying to commit fraud. CCI did not check the source of the company they were trying to collect for and I believe may be involved in the scam or fraud. They told me I had to write them in order to dispute the matter. I wrote them XX/XX/XXXX disputing such amount owed for I never received goods from this company. The sent me a letter back on XX/XX/XXXX stating I needed to fill out identity theft paperwork asking for all my personal information. I in return sent a letter back to them on XX/XX/XXXX stating it was not identity theft but a scam and fraud and to check into the company that they are collecting for. I then received a call from CCI threating me to send this to my credit report which was already done and in so hurt my credit rating lowering it to XXXX. I did some digging into XXXX XXXX and within the last 6 months they have done this to multiple people. They do this to commit fraud, hurt your credit, and collection agencies go along with it. This is not fair to anyone of those people including myself and they should be prosecuted for fraud.
