Consumer Complaint: Account information ITEM DESCRIPTION RESULTS XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX, PA XXXX ( XXXX ) XXXX # XXXX DISPUTED This agency never contacted me before placing this on my credit report. I found out about this because my credit score shot down 62 points, so I went to check my credit report that ‘s how I found out. I received no phone calls and no notices what so ever.
I call this agency and explained to them that this was never my account on XXXX,17. I also called XXXX, on that same day, I was connected to the financing services department she looked in my account and stated that in my account it says all previous balances paid in full. She then connected me to the credit recovery department and they stated that it was nothing they could do about it, because XXXX, had already sold it to a third party. The Representative then said that they could not send out a notice stating that the account was paid in full, because it was something still on the account.
She told me that I could call the third-party and asked them to send the file back, so they could investigate why it was sold. She said Because at this time she cant see anything in the file because the third-party has that information.
I called XXXX XXXX XXXX, back and explain to them what XXXX, representative had said. They told me that they have no more information, other than what XXXX gave them which is : my name address, Social Security number and how much I owed. And then said, what they would do is contact XXXX, and tell them the file in question, has been disputed and that would give XXXX more time to find out what happened, meanwhile after the results from XXXX, from my complaint nothing has changed they claim they had verifiable information I find that strange, being that I have not received any verifiable information as yet.
