Product: Credit card debt
Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: I began disputing this entry with XXXX as it is reflected on my XXXX credit report. For the last year, this company has denied that they have any account with my information attached to it. This is ludacrous. Why then is there an entry reflected on my report? I have never opened an AMEX nor XXXX ‘s account. This account is fraudulent and should not be reflected on my credit report.
Being that XXXX by phone and in writing has stated they have no records with this account information or can’t provide any documentation to substantiate what they are reporting, the entry must be DELETED! I am prepared to hire an attorney as it seems that the company does not want to cooperate with my requests and this account is continuing to report on my credit.
This account does not belong to me, was fraudulently opened and therefore I am demanding that it be deleted!
