Consumer Complaint: I have an original debt from XXXX XXXX. It has been sold to two different debt collectors that have both reported the debt to my credit report from XXXX XXXX for the same amount resulting in duplicate reporting. The first collector is listed as XXXX. The amount is XXXX. This account is listed as opened in XX/XX/XXXX. They last reported on XX/XX/XXXX. The 2nd collector is listed as IC Systems. The amount is listed is XXXX. Listed as opened XX/XX/XXXX. They last reported on XX/XX/XXXX. Both are listing ownership of the same debt and reporting it to my credit report.
