Consumer Complaint: I have a complaint against XXXX XXXX and AAFES. I am in receipt of a statement dated XXXX XX/XX/XXXX ( attached ) which indicates an account balance of {$5300.00}. I called the number for AAFES collections on the statement to make payment arrangements. There was no option in the automated call system to speak to a representative at AAFES. The system told me to call a different number which I did. At that point I was connected to XXXX XXXX. The representative told me they have had the account since XX/XX/XXXX. Further I was told the balance I owed was over {$6300.00} due to a ‘collection fee ‘.

-I received NO notification of transfer of my account from AAFES to a third party or of any punitive fees being assessed since XX/XX/XXXX -Payments have been made to AAFES through out XXXX -There is no disclosure or itemization of any fee on the statement ( see attached ) -This is a PREDATORY debt collection activity.
