Consumer Complaint: I noticed in XX/XX/XXXX that Trident Asset Management added an account for XXXX to my credit report. I contacted XXXX and they stated that the account was sold to Trident Asset Management. The charges were for un-returned XXXX XXXX equipment. I moved from XXXX County Maryland to XXXX County Maryland in XX/XX/XXXX. My XXXX XXXX equipment was returned to XXXX via XXXX in XX/XX/XXXX. XXXX states they can no longer view my account in their system and can not assist with the tracking of my returned equipment. I have disputed this account several times with the 3 credit bureaus to no avail. Trident Asset Management continues to verify the debt is valid. To this date, I have never received a bill for equipment from XXXX or Trident Asset Management. I have pleaded with both organizations to assist me in tracking and both continue to ignore me. My credit score has been damaged severely due to Trident ‘s re-aging of the account and unwillingness to address and obvious error on XXXX ‘s behalf. Trident has chosen to update my credit report to reflect that the ” open date ” is XX/XX/XXXX. I have a previous credit report that clearly states the account charges originated in XX/XX/XXXX. Please help … I just want justice for a debt i do not owe.
