I asked the bank to verify the name and account number that they submitted in which I received no reply. Returns can not be issued to a closed account as closed accounts are not open for credits or deposits. I called the company to inquire as to why the payment was returned. I spoke with a XXXX and asked for a full transaction audit history, not an account summary. I received no reply in 30 day. I then wrote the company a letter asking to validate the debt through a full transaction audit and emailed to the companies provided email address.
