Consumer Complaint: On XX/XX/XXXX a young man by the name of XXXX XXXX contacted my husband about legal papers that would be served to me on Thursday, XX/XX/XXXX. I was confuse, so I contacted XXXX and he stated that he had authorization to serve me papers. So when I asked him papers for what he told asked me was this the first time hearing about this. I told him yes and I wanted to get more information about the debt. So he stated to me by law they should have notified me about the date before legal papers are served. XXXX XXXX connected me with a XXXX and when XXXX answered her line she indicated that she was with XXXX XXXX and she was collecting a debt for XXXX XXXX, she stated that XXXX XXXX has sold the account to her for collections. She told me the debt was for XXXX and they did not collect it from my bank so she is trying to collect it. I told her I did n’t get notification from XXXX XXXX or XXXX XXXX and I need to get notification that the debt was not paid. I explain to her that XXXX XXXX did n’t call me or did n’t send me any correspondence about a debt, so how is it that XXXX XXXX want to serve me papers on something I am not aware of. XXXX for XXXX XXXX stated that by law XXXX XXXX does not have to notify me and the account has already been sold to them. She demanded XXXX by XX/XX/XXXX and indicated that she could take another XXXX on a later date and that would settle the debt. I told her ok, but before I give my credit card number over the phone I need paper work explaining the debt and where I could send the paper work too. XXXX indicated the only way I could get that information is to lock in a payment with her today and I refuse to give her my personal information over the phone. I called XXXX XXXX head quarters and they explain to me that the debt was sold and no they did not notify me because they just sold the account on last month. They indicated that they sold the account to XXXX XXXX XXXX and the number was XXXX but they never heard of a XXXX XXXX XXXX First they called my husband about the debt and secondly they gave me false information about the debt. and I never received collection notifications about this debt.
