Consumer Complaint: Upon verifying my credit reports, it appears that this company is being deceitful. They are using two different names on two different credit reports. On XXXX, they go by XXXX XXXX XXXX and on XXXX, they go by XXXX XXXX XXXX. The billing statement that was sent to me is from XXXX XXXX XXXX. I verified that XXXX XXXX XXXX are not licensed to collect in the state of MI. Prior to determining that they were not licensed in MI, I sent them a letter requesting validation of the debt of which they state I owe. To date, I have not received a response, however the certified letter that was sent to them was received less than 30 days ago. At this point, I am requesting immediate removal of this collection account from all bureaus of which this account is being reported.
