Consumer Complaint: The XXXX law offices of XXXX, in XXXX sent a ” judgement letter ” to my home saying I owe ” Bank of America ” XXXX dollars. This was opened ( checked credit report ) in XXXX XXXX?? I never got or my parents, since they get the mail here, and I would have known about this card for Bank of America. and why now the dispute or this case, which I have no knowledge of. They now put this report into my credit report?? as of yesterday, after I wrote the back and told them this account is NOT mine. and it was NOT in my credit report?? This account was opened in XXXX XXXX, Texas?? I lived in PA at that time. According to the report they added, this was taken out in XXXX of XXXX I did go to XXXX XXXX that year of XXXX and returned to PA in XXXX?? I have no idea who would open a card in my name. I lost my card there twice! ( in XXXX ) and my phone was stolen as well, and had to retrieve my social security card after I got back to PA. There is no way I could have opened up a Bank of America Card?? Something I have no idea of. I need the law firm to investigate this since I do not own this card or ever have. I have also a credit card which was never used at a ” XXXX XXXX XXXX ” opened as well?? … which is not mine, and I never applied for this either. I believe I have been the victim of some stupid identity scam. I reported this dispute with the Credit report companies as a dispute? I know what and who I owe, but not this card or the other
