Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: *XX/XX/XXXX I requested my credit reports from all 3 credit bureaus to find a collection account be reported by XXXX XXXX XXXX in the amount of ~ {$17000.00}.
*XX/XX/XXXX I contacted XXXX , XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX , and XXXX ( original lender ) disputing this reporting. The credit bureaus responded with written notification that the debt had been verified, XXXX XXXX XXXX nor did XXXX respond.
*XX/XX/XXXX I sent a second round of letters disputing the debt reporting to both cb, the collection company, and the original lender. The cb again responded that the debt had been verified, the original lender again did not respond, however the collection agency sent a copy of a statement from XXXX and the front page of an inactive homeowners policy with my name on it.
This debt is being reported incorrectly and I’m not responsible for this debt, in a written statement ( which I will include ) admits that the insurance company agreed to pay them for the work and when the invoice was submitted to the insurance company the insurance company refused to pay the claim. I have made multiple attempts to contact XXXX & XXXX XXXX XXXX without success.
