Consumer Complaint: For some years now this has been popping up on my credit reports. Have disputed in the past because my sister whose name is XXXX XXXX has on multiple instances taking my identity and used it to get bills like gas electric water and cable wherever she would be staying. I thought I had this taken care of 2 years ago but it popped back up 6 months ago. Now it is time that we are looking for a home and I I just called and paid XXXX XXXX to there collections department. Not too ERC group. I have contacted all letting everyone know that this was my sister taking my identity. I did not go as far as getting a judgment against her for taking my identity I have just been paying for it. Like I said I paid for it on XXXX XXXX 2018 direct to XXXX collections department. I would like this removed from my reports as soon as possible.
Thanks XXXX XXXX
