Product: Medical debt
Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: I have filled a dispute several times through equifax explaining that this is not my debt. I don’t live in XXXX.. I live in XXXX. I requested the company send proof of this and the only thing they can send is an invoice. No letter showing that I may have acknowledged this debt or taken responsibility of this. I have no unpaid medical bills. This is clearly fraud. I refuse to pay for something I didn’t do. My next order of business is pursuing legal action. I would rather pay a lawyer to sue you for pain and suffering than to pay for something fraudulent. This only shows on my Equifax credit report and Equifax is agreeing with the company on this bogus proof or debt they are providing. Is equifax an accomplice? I am happy to add them to the lawsuit as well.
