Consumer Complaint: I reviewed my credit report and noticed that XXXX XXXX was reporting a negative trade line on my credit report … Open collection without a balance nor who are they collecting for..account number # XXXX. On XX/XX/XXXX I mailed them a certified debt validation letter. On XX/XX/XXXX I sent them via certified mail a failure to validate letter. They received the first letter on XX/XX/XXXX… as of right now they have not responded to both of my letters. I also disputed this account with the XXXX XXXX twice and they CLAIM that the account was verified and it will remain on my credit report. I do not understand how is that so because XXXX XXXX has not responded to my claim. On XX/XX/XXXX I contacted XXXX XXXX and I spoke with XXXX and she advised me that they received my debt validation request on XX/XX/18 and they have submitted the dispute to the original creditor. As of today I have not received any correspondence from XXXX XXXX nor the original creditor. XXXX XXXX has violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and Defamation of Character. XXXX XXXX claim is frivolous as they are unable to verify this debt within time frame.
