Consumer Complaint: This is a bill from a doctor who claims I owe, I disagree. I am requesting an investigation with dates, charges, procedures, insurance notification and insurance charges both, and what this bill is for. I have not been sent a bill, therefore this needs to be cleared and off my credit report because it is causing my score to be lower than it should be, and also getting denied from creditors, plus the only collection on my report.
Also, in the state of Arizona, where I reside, the statue of limitation is 5 yrs. and this has been on my credit report at least six ( 6 ) years or more. I have disputed this with the Credit Departments with no avail and in hopes you will help me out on this. All they have said is the consumer does not agree and wo n’t remove it from my credit report.
Your attention to this matter will be appreciated and hopefully successful.
