Issue: Written notification about debt

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: I defaulted on several credit lines with XXXX XXXX. They have then sold my debt to XXXX XXXX XXXX, XXXX, XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX, and not sure for the third one. XXXX XXXX, XXXX XXXX XXXX, XXXX, XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX have not provided me with any correspondence that the debts were transferred to another co. nor has the buyers of the debt informed me of such transfer. Instead a representative from XXXX XXXX XXXX, XXXX. contacted me on XX/XX/XXXX stating that she worked for the Litigation dept. We immediately demanded that a verbal cease and desist be placed on the account, but the Rep. stated that she did not have to abide by such request and refused to accept. I was outraged and shocked being that no notice had been previously given and the fact that a written cease and desist was sent in XXXX of XX/XX/XXXXto all my creditors. When the cease and desist was sent in XXXX of XXXX, I verbally communicated with all my creditors and offered 30 % to settle my accounts. This money came from my XXXX, as I had no other means of meeting my responsibility. Since then I have settled wit.h XXXX, XXXX XXXX, XXXX XXXX XXXX, XXXX XXXX, XXXX, XXXX and personal loans. I never refused to pay my debt, but due to my hardship i am working with limited funds.XXXX XXXX XXXX did not provide me with all correct and rightful legal notices and correspondences, and/or acknowledging my hardship or attempted to work with me since i never refused to pay but nearly wanted to negotiate a settlement. The have shown very little integrity in the process as they contacted me from a litigation dept. and would not honor a verbal cease. Lastly they have now hired the XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX to tactfully force and scare me to pay. XXXX XXXX XXXX simply has shown that they do not care about following a lawful process and are willing to cut corners and threatened people and if they dont get what they want they send you to an attorney ‘s office!!!
