Making it charged off and updated after the account was sold to XXXX on XX/XX/XXXX per XXXX XXXX. I didn’t receive a notice from XXXX at any time.

I sent a letter of dispute to XXXX on 3 separate occasions asking for validation, original account level documentation. Every time what I requested was refused but XXXX would send me a printout of incorrect information.
