Consumer Complaint: Due to the fact that I a not a U.S citizen, I did not understand that when resolving issues, like these i had to go to all credit agencies, and because of this lack of knowledge I only contacted XXXX to have the problem resolved. XXXX XXXX XXXX recently bought an outstanding {$1000.00} XXXX debt in my name dated XX/XX/XXXX. However I had contacted XXXX about this issue ; listed under ‘XXXX XXXX XXXX ( ERC ), and had it removed from their records back in XX/XX/XXXX ( XX/XX/XXXX ) when i showed proof that the social security they had on file that was connected to the debt was n’t my social security.
