Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: In XX/XX/XXXX I was notified by XXXX that someone was attempting to open a XXXX XXXX account and a XXXX account in my name. XXXX stopped it, but the criminal apparently opened a bank account in my name and has bounced checks in my name. The original credit grantor AND their collection agency have been provided proof of the identity theft.
On XX/XX/XXXX, they BOTH, in writing, promised to remove this account from my name and credit report, yet I received a letter today ( XX/XX/XXXX ) that is dated XX/XX/XXXX, that boasts that they are still reporting this fraudulent account on my credit report.
They have been provided proof, they accepted that proof, they promised to follow the FCA and remove the fraudulent information, and are now willfully breaking the laws that are in place to protect consumers by continuing to report what they know to be a fraudulent account on MY credit report.
