Consumer Complaint: OK so XX/XX/2018 was a Friday afternoon. I called XXXX to try and settle a debt That I have in the amount of {$470.00}. After explaining to an agent what I was calling for they then looked up my account and tell me that I had another account with them as well. After they explaining to me the amount on the second account that I have with them. They proceeded to ask me how I wanted to take care of the accounts. I then explained to them that I wanted to pay {$470.00} and pay off one of the accounts. I also explained with pain that I would like to have a paid in full for that account I was paying towards. They then told me that they couldnt give me a paid in full receipt until I paid the second account as well. I feel since theyre two separate accounts they shouldnt fall under the same account and I should be able to get a receipt for two different accounts. One of the accounts that they were also wanted to collect on I have disputed it with XXXX XXXX and XXXX and has been taken off my credit report so I dont feel I have to pay that to them since it has been disputed. So my concern is paying them {$470.00} so I can get a paid in full receipt for that account. That one account is holding me back from getting an apartment of my own so I can have somewhere to live. If I could get some kind of resolution I would greatly appreciate it.
