Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: In XX/XX/XXXX and XX/XX/XXXX, I sent written correspondence to National Credit Systems as well as their attorney via registered mail informing them of my correct address and asking for verification of the debt. TO DATE, I have yet to receive any verification of the debt or any written correspondence at all. Today, XX/XX/XXXX, I contacted National Credit Systems successfully after many unsuccessful attempts and was treated with complete contempt, despite all of my attempts to be professional. I was put on hold abruptly on many occasions and given excuses about there being phone issues, ” a skeleton crew, ” and I was barely able to understand what was being said because the phone lines kept cutting out on the other end. I could n’t even get my full account number and was told hastily by XXXX that ” he ‘d get back to that. ” I informed XXXX that in the six-seven months since my written correspondence had been sent to NCS, I had received nothing in return, despite multiple letters that I had sent and confirmed delivery of, via USPS. XXXX intimated that perhaps I had not provided NCS with the correct address, although I did provide them with the correct address and have received all mail from that address and continue to do so to date. I updated NCS with my current address even though XXXX implied that I should give them a better address. I will continue to send written correspondence to NCS as well as to the credit bureaus asking that this debt be removed since NCS has been unable and unwilling to do anything other than state that their ” computer systems ” show that they are sending correspondence back to me, none of which I have received.
