Consumer Complaint: The company is : Express Recovery Services XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX, UT XXXX ( XXXX ) XXXX I never received letters from the company to validate the debt or to allow me to dispute the debt. I only found out about the debt being in collections by checking my credit report in XX/XX/XXXX. After that, in XX/XX/XXXX, I did contact them to try and work with them and they would not work with me. Months later they filed a judgment, again, I was not properly notified of the court dates so it was awarded to them by default. I received a call in XX/XX/XXXX from them telling me that they had won by default and proceeded to tell me all of the things they were going to do to recover the money for the hospital bill ; such as seizing my assets, credit damage, and wage garnishment. They inexplicably withdrew the judgment and then renewed the collection accounts. Yet again, I found this out by looking at my credit not from them or the courts.
From the beginning, this company founded on punishing people for wanting to stay alive, has been despicable on every level. They were uncooperative, condescending, and just disgustingly proud of their loop-hole navigation. They exist only to contribute to or be the cause of human suffering. They represent the worst qualities of corporations, Americans, and human beings in general. These are fundamental truths, not opinions.
Regardless of these impassioned statements, this company did not properly notify me as required by law. I would include these documents in my complaint, however, they do not exist.
