Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: I have called the company listed on the credit bureau and they either dont answer, Im transferred to an agent that hangs up on me, they havent disclosed the origination of the debt, and repeated attempts and based on the amount lead me to believe it is an old debt that was either paid by insurance for healthcare or it was discharged in bankruptcy. The dates and times of calls along with the creditor details are below. It has been reported on my credit for over three years and it continues to accrue interest and negatively impact my credit. Ive even offered to pay it and was hung up on.

Transferred and spoke briefly with a guy who was extremely rude when I asked about details of the debt. I supplied all my contact details and verified who I was – he wouldnt supply details other than it was for a hospital visit and it was definitely owed. Needed to be handled immediately or court action would ensue. Then hung up. Called back – no answer.
