Product: Other debt
Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: IN XXXX I sent a letter requesting verification of a debt/collection account reported on my credit report.
The company responded that the original creditor could not provide the written document I requested and the item would be removed from my credit report.
I then received a photocopy of a ” final bill ” from the debt collection agency showing an incorrect address where service was provided and none of the information I ‘d originally requested from the debtor which was a signed original service contract and a payment history.
Again, I am requesting this account be removed from all XXXX of my credit reports as the information they have attempted to provide is not the items I originally requested and the photocopies they provided are from an address I ‘ve never lived at.
