Consumer Complaint: I recently disputed a collection account on all 3 CRA with JH Portfolio Debt Equities several times and the account continued to remain as debt owed. I also filed a prior complaint due to not accurately updating my information on my credit report as I am in a Chapter XXXX bankruptcy. The company responded with the date they purchased the debt and also uploaded 3 credit card statements that had nothing to do with when the validation of the debt took place. 2 out of 3 of the statements you uploaded are not my current mailing address. The response also stated I filed a dispute prior to JH being notified, I notified JH after seeking an alternate number. I spoke with a customer service representative and provided the necessary bankruptcy information and the company continued to respond to XXXX as debt owed. Pull your company recorded lines to verify you dropped the ball on this. I would also like for the company to provide accurate information on when and where letters were mailed and how they attempted to collect this debt. I never received any information from JH Portfolio to dispute. I am not seeking credit card statements, I am seeking information on when a validation letter was mailed and it must be verifiable.
