Consumer Complaint: I received a letter from this company called XXXX XXXX XXXX about a year ago and I went to their website thinking I needed to pay. However, after looking on their site, it contained a lot of incorrect information about me. I began investigating the charge and it was claimed while I had insurance. I looked through my insurance to see if I ever received a charge from them and I never did. On top of that, I never went to the office they were requesting payment from.
I then began looking into the company and found this site XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX They are a fake scam company that tries to scare people by using a statement that looks real and then have people pay them directly on their website. After reading the site, I decided to ignore the letter and throw it away.
Months lately, XXXX was hacked and through that I was able to get a year of free credit monitoring. I received an e-mail recently saying that my credit score dropped. I logged into the XXXX site, XXXX, and saw that my credit of XXXX dropped to XXXX. Apparently there was a collections filed against me by no other than XXXX XXXX XXXX! I have contacted the XXXX Credit Bureau to see if there was anything that can be done and they were unable to help me. I am now trying to dispute this collections as well taking the necessary action to report these people so that this doesn’t happen to others.
