Consumer Complaint: I have sent notices to XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX whose address is XXXX. XXXX, XXXX XXXX XXXX, XXXX, CA XXXX and have asked them to verify and validate this supposed debt. So far, all they have sent me are copies of billing statements. I have also asked for and have a right to documentation with my signature that shows I owe this debt and an agreement that grants them the authority to collect on this alleged debt. I also would like a copy of their state license, including the license number which gives them the legal authority to collect in the state of Ohio. Again, I have received nothing from them other than some billing statements. I have no signed contract with this company and they have provided me nothing whatsoever with my signature on it.
