Consumer Complaint: Back in XXXX Ive received a bill from XXXX, I called then and explained to them that this isnt my bill and they told me that they couldnt put someone else bill in my name. I filed a police report and found out that the bill belongs to someone else with the same first name, middle initial, and last name as me. The detective have not contacted me back since then and Ive tried calling and still wasnt able to speak with the detective. This year I checked my credit report and seen that the bill was still there. I disputed it over the phone and they havent removed it but they gave me a shorter date for it to close. There is also a address connected to this bill on my report that Ive never lived at.
