I told the company that I have moved to another state on a previous call before XXXX and gave my new address. and apparently they failed to update their system which is clearly mishandling this account. so this morning I received a phone call at XXXX XXXX from this company I told the representative on the phone that It was before XXXX and what address they have for me and she gave me the correct address and I advised her that it was a violation of the fdcpa to call before XXXX and I wanted to speak to a supervisor and her response was well are going to take care of this.
