Consumer Complaint: You may look into my previous complaints for further information.
In summary I have been paced on collection by TSI for a debt that they were given by XXXX XXXX XXXX to manage without ever informing or attempting to inform me of such changes or my ability to make payments on the debt.
I have explained in the past how their initial and only attempt was to place my account on collections after my cosigners Chapter XXXX bankruptcy was finished and they could apparently collect again. While this is happening I was told repeatedly by the XXXX that they had no idea of any account in my name or even with my SS #. Impressively enough TSI turns around and places my account on collections without any letters in the mail, any phone calls, any emails, nothing!
The account should be taken out of collections status as this is an abuse of power and manipulation of accounts. As a consumer I was lied to by XXXX and was never contacted by TSI nor was I ever informed that TSI existed and/or had my account in their possession.
