Consumer Complaint: I was working with a financial advocate to clean up my credit report and get my debts cleared and in doing so we disputed some things on my credit report to make sure things were accurate. A payday loan that I took while I was in the military service from a company called XXXX XXXX is the problem. I initially took the loan for {$3000.00} dollars on XX/XX/2013. I paid this loan until I was XXXX from the military on XX/XX/2013. I brought this balance down to {$1600.00} dollars over this course of time with {$120.00} payments every month via an alotment on my paycheck. After I was XXXX from the military I lost everything and I went through a period of XXXX. Working with the advocate, after we disputed and checked the accuracy of the debt and it was reported completely accurate at {$1600.00} dollars by all three credit bureaus. Within 60-90 days of getting the reports that it was accurate, the creditor sold my debt to another party and increased the debt to {$4100.00}. This is a violation of the fair credit reporting act and the fair debt collection practices act and therefore, I want the amount to reflect accurately and I want to stop this company from doing this to veterans like me. I need help bringing a suit under the fair debt collection practices act.
