Consumer Complaint: I have been disputing XXXX XXXX XXXX aka XXXX XXXX XXXX since XX/XX/XXXX and XX/XX/XXXX and XX/XX/XXXX of this year. I utilized XXXX and seen that I initially had ( 1 ) collection item listed from this company. I immediately took action disputing the validity of this account, asking for verification, and proof that they attempted to contact me prior. The company never provided any documentation and then proceeded to send me threatening letters stating that they would seek legal action. I received another correspondence stating that I personally spoke with them on the phone and spoke with their legal dept, I asked for proof of those conversations and I never received it. Prior to me disputing this account, I have never had any contact with XXXX XXXX and XXXX XXXX has never reached out to me. Most recently, I check my credit again and XXXX XXXX still has this debt on all 3 of my credit reports. I am beyond outraged that this company continues to violate my consumer rights and also damage my credit. I do not owe any debts to XXXX or any outside vendors that they may have. To add insult to injury, They allege that they sent me letters, I never received any documents or notification for validation for that alleged account. XXXX XXXX has been the topic and center point for numerous class action lawsuits and settlements due to their illegal practices. This company is attempting to swindle monies from me and I will not actively participate in their activities. Every time that I dispute an account that is not mine, XXXX begins to send me stressful threatening letters demanding payment or I will suffer legal action. XXXX also present these letters in a manner as if they have been communicating with me on a regular basis. This is not the case and completely false representation on XXXX ‘s part.
