Consumer Complaint: XXXX XXXX XXXX, XXXX XXXX evidently turned over an unknown account to a collection company called XXXX. I have not received any correspondence from this company or phone calls. I work for a small company as XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX., I have a business account. My BOSS, my BOSS, came into me this morning and handed me a collection bill that was sent to HIS HOME. Again, the boss of my company received a collection notice with my name mailed to his HOME ADDRESS. I have never used his home address but have been told as an add on to his business card, it is possible his address is listed on my credit report. This company said that had my current home address but changed it to my Bosses home address. I am mortified. The representative for XXXX could not give me any answer as to why and his supervisor only told him to be a ” cease contact ” in my profile to no longer contact me. I need to they could have attained my bosses HOME address, not work and how it is legal for them to send any personal correspondence about me without verifying addresses. I am worried I am going to lose my job. I need explanation from this company and what resources I can take towards releasing personal information to my employers home address.
