Consumer Complaint: I have contact Medical Data Systems about the inaccuracy of the debt from XXXX Hospital since XX/XX/XXXX. I even agreed to pay the portion of the bill that was accurate. The company refused to accept that amount and also refused to contact the debt holder to validate the debt after I made multiple requests in XX/XX/XXXX and XX/XX/XXXX to receive validation of the debt as required by the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
Having no luck with Medical Data Systems I contacted XXXX XXXX Hospital and the put me in touch with the CFO, who had his staff suspend all activity on my account on XX/XX/XXXX. Please see attached letter from XXXX XXXX, XXXX for XXXX XXXX Hospital.
