Consumer Complaint: to me in XXXX I made a verbal commitment to a XXXX XXXXl, I ended up sighing for it. When that was happening, I was going through a case, that could possibly lead to some jail time.. which it did end up leading to. I went to school for about XXXX week in a half before i had to go through custody. When I got out of jail, I tried to return to the school, the former lady that talked to me and got me to sign up etc., did n’t accept me. XXXX years later, I find out they sent me to collections. My credit is perfect right now because I cleaned it, but I just found out I have a adjustment.. That adjustment effects my life on trying to grow with my family because I am a mother of XXXX kids now and I am trying to become a home owner but I ca n’t, and I can figure out how and where to solve this.. and I ‘m truly seeking for any help you can do for me.
Thank you for your time
