Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: I continue to receive letters from a Debt collection Law firm called XXXX XXXX XXXX, XXXX XXXX XXXX, which I have disputed and written several letters to indicating that this debt does not belong to me. I was never served.I notified them that this was fraudulent and was illegal to collect monies from me on a debt that does not belong to me. This debt appears to be more than10 years ago and even the statutes of limitations to collect had ran out, and I have just received a renewal of judgement dated XX/XX/XXXX. XXXX XXXX XXXX have renewed a judgement that has been more than 10 years ago and served me with this new judgement on XX/XX/XXXX. I had previously filed a complaint with the CFPB about this law firm and their illegal tactics and deliberate violations of all applicable laws that applies to the FCRA and the FDCPA. with the CFPB and nothing came of it. This Law firm has a track record of harassing and aggressively collecting and suing innocent consumers and they need to be investigated for violating consumer protection laws and statutes. I am a medically retired peace officer with the inability to settle such a debt even if the debt was mine. To have twice filed an illegal judgement against me is very debilitating to me and my general welfare, particularly my health. Please I am pleading with CFPB to open an investigation into XXXX XXXX XXXX, XXXX XXXX XXXX.
