Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: XXXX XXXX is contacting me regarding a debt they are claiming I owe, date of service starting XX/XX/2014. I replied to them that I was stationed in XXXX XXXX, AL until XX/XX/2014 and was not in the same state that the service was rendered. They are demanding my social security number, a police report identifying a suspect, and a utility bill proving my location.
I advised that the XXXX does not provide utility bills when you are stationed in the barracks. I have my XXXX proving I was in XXXX XXXX AL until XX/XX/2014 and I have provided my bank statements showing that I was using the XXXX XXXX until early XX/XX/2014, proving that I could not have been in the same state they claim the services were opened. They are claiming the debt has been ” verified ” – they have sent me paperwork with the wrong address, the wrong telephone number, and an illegible signature they claim is mine. I have provided multiple documents proving that my address had changed and that I was nowhere near the service location at that time. I have disputed this debt with all three credit reporting agencies and they have removed this debt from my account. However XXXX XXXX continues to harass me regarding this debt and will not respond to my questions regarding confirming or denying the debt.
