Consumer Complaint: Hello, I have reached out to Us Collections through CFPB, I filled a complaint because they are reporting a false amount on my credit file and also reporting a debt that ‘s not mines. They are reporting a debt from a company that is no longer in business and in fact selling condos as i have provided in pdf form and in addition this company stated in my CFPB response that i dispute this alleged debt every month in fact i do n’t and yes i have sent 3 times a request for validation as they wont give me anything for an apartment, like a lease my drivers license, my signature. I do n’t need a letter saying you sent me validation with nothing attached as proof, Im sure as a company you know that ‘s not validation. XXXX XXXX the mgr @ us collections west, Please send me the lease and my drivers license, you stated that you mailed me a letter on XX/XX/2017 certified mail, provide the return receipt and a pdf with my signature and the address you mailed it to. Im a single mother and trying to better my life and your company are reporting false and detrimental claims against me and this is horrible!!! all i ask for is proof and the correct amount, if there is none do whats right and delete from my credit file. I ca n’t sleep at night knowing i did n’t create this debt of $ XXXX!!! lets face I ‘m not owning this debt and it has only 3 more years to report!! if you have a heart and a family and know how hard it is in this world and review your files and delete as this honestly not me as i have lived in XXXX XXXX for the last 6 years of my life!! I pray that something changes and GOD has his hands in this ….
Thanks XXXX : )
