Consumer Complaint: XXXX XXXX- is VERY AGRESSIVELY, and TOO AGRESSIVELY attempting to collect on the debt that is not mine in first place. I contacted XXXX in XXXX as soon as I saw this collection on my credit report. XXXX could NOT find any negative accounts in my name.. I still have my phone active and in current status with them … In XXXX I disputed this collection with convergent, the dispute was within 30 days of them notifying me and posting this collection on my credit report. Per Fair collections practices act I disputed this account within statutes of limitations and they should have removed it form my credit report immediately, but they ignored all of my letters and keep aggressively calling me on my cell, house, work and now at my parents house … this is outrageous and should not be allowed. please help me stop these XXXX!!! I am also filing an official complaint with FTC I spoke with a representative who took all the information and I have sent all supporting documentation and recorded phone calls with threats and harrasments and their agents acting as law inforcement!!!
