Product: Medical debt
Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: I had a notification from my credit reporting agencies indication a major action. So I looked into it. Come to find out I have a collection on me for a ” medical ” bill. Problem is, I haven’t been to any medical professional, hospital, emergency room or anything relating to that in over 15 years! I am in an active dispute with the 3 credit reporting agencies. Now over a year ago I did misplace my wallet. And it was found and mailed to me. Money was missing but otherwise seemed untouched. I didn’t think anything of it at the time. Maybe this could be a pending result of that? I’m not sure. But I know this debt isn’t mine because the services they claim, I haven’t used such in over 15 years!
