Consumer Complaint: Diversified Consultants, INC XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX, FL XXXX Florida Office of Financial Regulation License # XXXX XXXX Department of Consumer Affairs License # XXXX Ref : Agency Reference Number # XXXX / Account # XXXX To whom it may concern : On XXXX-2017 Diversified Consulting Inc sent me a letter stating that I owed a debt. I am disputing the above referenced debt. Please verify this debt as required by the Fair Debt Collection Practices ( FDCPA ) ( section 1692g ) and XXXX XXXX XXXX Administrative Code ( section 20-493.2 ). XXXX XXXX XXXX regulations require all debt XXXX to send specific written documentation verifying the debt. Under section 2-190 of the Rules of the City of XXXX XXXX, verification requires all of the following : Proof of my agreement to pay the original creditor A copy of the final account statement issued by the original creditor ; A breakdown of the total amount due, showing principal, interest, and other charges ; and For all other charges, the date of and the basis for each charge. I dispute this charge because I do not recognize this debt and I do not owe any money to this creditor. I monitor my report monthly and I have become a responsible consumer and this is an unfamiliar debt to me. If it were indeed valid it would have been paid. Moreover, this debt appears to be past the Statute of Limitations. Because I am disputing this debt, you should not report it to the credit reporting agencies. If you have already reported it, please notify the credit reporting agencies that the debt is disputed and/or delete the trade line from my credit report. Reporting information that you know to be inaccurate, or failing to report information correctly, violates the FDPCA and their Fair Credit Reporting Act. ( section 1692g ) Aside from verifying the debt, do not contact me about this debt. The FDCPA and Rules of the City of New York ( section 5-77 ) require that you honor this request.
