Consumer Complaint: Dear Sirs, XXXX on XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX IL made charged {$XXXX} to my account by mistake and gave it to Payliance for collection.After I spoke to Miss XXXX of XXXX XXXX she cancelled it on XXXX/XXXX/XXXX. Payliance XXXX told me that they sent cancellation notices to three credit bureaus on XXXX/XXXX/XXXX. I got a email alert from XXXX XXXX credit secure on XXXX/XXXX/XXXX that my credit score went from XXXX to XXXX because Payliance did not cancelled the item from my credit which they reported to three credit bureaus .I called again Payliance / XXXX on XXXX/XXXX/XXXX and they told me the same thing again that they sent cancellation to all three credit bureaus.
Payliance on XXXX/XXXX/XXXX updated my credit report saying that they are in process of collecting debt from me, which is totally wrong. Because I dont owe any money to XXXX or anyone else.I have the email from XXXX XXXX of XXXX that I dont owe anything. I also have two voice messages of XXXX XXXX that she called Payliance XXXX and told them to cancel it on XXXX and XXXX.XXXX is not removing the item from my credit report. I am never late on my payments ever and I work really hard to keep good credit. Sirs I request you to help fight Payliance to remove the wrong charge on my credit report.Thanks a lot.
Best regards
