Consumer Complaint: XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX, XXXX XXXXXXXX XXXX XXXX, IN XXXX I have two collections accounts recent reported by XXXX XXXX in XX/XX/XXXX for 2 medical collection accounts in the amounts of {$1100.00} and {$830.00}. These are being reported to all 3 major credit bureaus ( XXXX, XXXX, and Transunion ). These 2 collections accounts are being reported as of XX/XX/XXXX with a Date Opened of XX/XX/XXXX. These same 2 accounts were already reported previously by XXXX XXXX XXXX with XXXX XXXX XXXX being the original creditor. The 2 collection accounts reported by XXXX XXXX were in the amounts of {$1100.00} and {$830.00}. Both accounts were deleted from all credit bureaus as these were falsely reported accounts. XXXX XXXX ‘s collection accounts had Reported Dates of XX/XX/XXXX, and Date Opened of XX/XX/XXXX. So as you can see, not only are their discrepancies in dates, but it is obvious these are the exact same accounts just resold to another debt collector, despite the fact both accounts were already deleted and removed from all my credit reports. I was never provided notification, or allowed to contest this information. Once a debt comes off of your credit report, no furnisher, creditor, debt collector or credit bureau is legally allowed to reinsert it, disguise it and re-report it, without notifying you and giving you the opportunity to contest it. Is this not correct? I am in the middle of being approved for a mortgage and this is an absolute joke that the bureaus even allowed this information to slip past and be re-reported. Quite honestly I could pursue legal avenues and not only get my credit report cleansed of the false information, but I am also likely entitled to monetary damages. XXXX XXXX has already been contacted twice with no response received. XXXX validated the debt even though it is clearly a re-reported account that they themselves already deleted from my report when it was initially filed under XXXXXXXX XXXX XXXX. I opened disputes with all credit bureaus, and a complaint with the XXXX against XXXX XXXX. In which, XXXX immediately responded and said for me to reach out via email. Which I have twice, and have received no response. I will continue to open complaints, and seek legal counsel if these are not removed. These are in complete violation of the FCRA. It is an FCRA requirement that the credit reporting agency notify you no later than five days after the date of reinsertion. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize these are the exact same debt collection accounts, just being reported under a new collector and new account number. Do your jobs credit bureaus it would take 2 minutes to realize these amounts tie out to each other and should have never been reinserted, not to mention it is in direct violation since you never sent me a notification.
