Issue: False statements or representation

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: On XX/XX/XXXX I received a letter from I C System debt collection agency dated XX/XX/XXXX stating that their office is increasing the balance owed on a delinquent account due to additional charges being incurred. The original balance was {$66.00} and I C System added {$520.00}. I C System is now trying to collect over 8 times the original amount of the debt from me. On XX/XX/XXXX, I sent a postal money order ( serial number ) XXXX for {$66.00} to pay my co-pay to the original creditor. My job insurance paid the rest of the entire bill already. I don’t owe any more money. This company is falsely stating and misrepresenting the amount that I paid. They sent me another bill for {$66.00} and added another bill for {$520.00}. They are trying to collect twice. This bill was already paid. Please help, this is unfair business practices. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
