Consumer Complaint: In XXXX I filed a complaint with you about 2 charges that showed up in my credit report from the Collection Bureau of Fort Walton Beach. One is for XXXX XXXX XXXX ( I have n’t used this place in at keast 10 years ) and the other is XXXX XXXX XXXX ( I do n’t even know who this is ). I believe you assigned one of the accounts XXXX, but I ca n’t get back to the page at this moment to get the other number. In their response they said they would send me something verifying and proving that these charges are valid and are indeed mine, but as of this date, XXXX XXXX, XXXX, I have not received anything from the Collection Bureau of Fort Walton Beach. I provided feedback to the extent that I was hopeful they would send me the requested info as they said they would, but I should n’t have sent feedback so soon. If they ca n’t provide me with the verification, these charges need to be removed from all of my credit reports. I am not going to pay a charge that ca n’t be proved to be mine.
