Product: Medical debt

Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: I checked my credit reports a couple of times last year. I found out that in XXXX XXXX, Commonwealth Financial started reporting a debt of {$610.00} ( medical ) to the credit bureaus. This is not a valid debt, as I have attempted to express to them on numerous occasions. I have disputed the account, multiple times, on each of the bureaus, and each time Commonwealth verified the account as accurate. I do n’t understand how they can do this. They will not send me verification of the debt, and I can only assume it ‘s because they are n’t licensed to collect in Florida and it shows their collection license as ” revoked ” ( I did a little XXXX search ). So what gives? Is this even legal?

State/Zip: FL 338XX
