Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: We received a letter in the mail regarding a debt with HSBC Bank from XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX. That debt was paid last year, however since we did n’t realize about it and we ” trusted ” the letter, we accesed the online payment option which was only able to be paid with debit card or check. ” The debt ” was paid with debit card just to avoid any issues, however we realized something was wrong. We called this company, they couldnt provide ANY information about it, their verification procedure was none, they said their system was down and will call back whenever the system gets back. There is only one guy answering the phone ( from a collections company, pretty strange ). Several calls after they got me to a ” supervisor ” that could n’t tell us ANYTHING about the debt. They did not want to return the payment and said that we should call the card to dispute the charge, but since it is debit, the money is already gone.
We are furious. We wish that someone goes after them and uncovers the truth. There are many people reviewing the company fake online as a scam. Looks like that company also violated many collection laws.
