Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: I received a phone call in from A.R.M. collections on or about XX/XX/2018, attempting to collect a debt on behalf of XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX. I had just installed a solar system with XXXX XXXX through XXXX and then financed through there finance company XXXX XXXX.
I then told A.R.M. to send me the collection letter which I received yesterday, XX/XX/2018. I then proceeded to call XXXX XXXX, XXXX, and XXXX XXXX, to find out what exactly is going on with my account with all of them. They proceeded to inform me that there was no debt that was in arrears with all three companies ; XXXX XXXX, XXXX or XXXX XXXX.
I’m assuming this must be fraudulent however A.R.M. was very persistent, I have called the New Mexico Attorney generals office and they could not find A.R.M. in there files as a valid company. So, if there is anything that you can do to help me or anyone else with this information, it would be greatly appreciated.
