Product: Credit card debt
Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: InXX/XX/XXXX I received a dunning claim from XXXX, PA, XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX, XXXX Florida XXXX on an account and debt that were not mine. I responded in writing denying both the account they referenced and that any debt was due from me. Today, XX/XX/XXXX, I have received the identical dunning claim from XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX, XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX, XXXX Florida XXXX with the assertion they had ” purchased the assets of XXXX XXXX XXXX ”. This seems an obvious, bogus corporate left hand-right hand game with an attempt to collect debts that they know are not legitimate. They need to be put out of business.
