Consumer Complaint: I was a victim of identity theft in XX/XX/XXXX/XX/XX/XXXX for the sum that XXXX XXXX has been trying to collect {$560.00} for with their attempts. This account was initially with a previous collection agency and I disputed it as fraudulent account and it was sent back and it was then placed with XXXX XXXX. XXXX XXXX has been trying to collect this sum when that balance does not belong to me. That account was opened and used at an address that I have never resided with a phone number I have never had. I have never lived in Georgia, I have never been to Georgia. This address is still even listed as a previous address on my credit reports that I am actively trying to remove. It is a fraudulent address and account that was made with XXXX. I had provided a XXXX representative with my case number to rectify the case of the fraudulent account but my info was still forwarded with a balance to collections which XXXX XXXX currently has. I am attaching the initial police report for this fraudulent XXXXXXXX account and would like for XXXX XXXX to cease and desist with the letters for payment on an identity theft account and case.
