Phoenix Financial Services LLC – CFPB Complaint

Consumer Complaint Submission

Date Received: 2018-02-04T00:00:00

Product: Medical debt

Issue: Written notification about debt

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: I received a ” second notice ” letter dated XX/XX/XXXX from Phoenix Financial Services LLC Registered as XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX saying that they’ve tried to contact me. I have not received any other letters or phone calls from this company. The letter mentions that I owe {$330.00} to XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX, which I also have never heard of, but Phoenix can accept a discounted amount to resolve this account. At first, I thought this must be a scam. I googled what to do and decided to write a letter to request validation, but checked my credit report first. Phoenix reported it to the CRA on XX/XX/XXXX and the credit report states the source is a medical bill from XX/XX/XXXX ( so they evidently gave them some information about the source, but not me ). I will need more information to determine if the debt is legitimate or whether it was paid. Medical billing is often confusing, untimely, and difficult because of all the parties involved and I’m concerned the claim is so old, I will be unable to find any records. I am now divorced and no longer have access to the same bank account/credit card/etc.
However, it was wrong of this company to lie about attempting to contact me, make a damaging report without the opportunity to validate or dispute the claim, and to do so on something so outdated.
