Consumer Complaint: I sent letters via certified mail to all three credit bureaus requesting validation for a XXXX XXXX/XXXX account. Per the certified mail receipts these letters were received by the bureaus on XX/XX/18 and XX/XX/18. No proof of validation was ever sent to me however all three bureaus updated my credit reports stating that the debt was valid. According to the FCRA they should have sent proof that the debt was valid within 30 days of the receipt of my request for validation in order to report the debt as valid.
