Consumer Complaint: Continental Credit is reporting a medical collection from XX/XX/2008. There have been two concerning issues with Continental. First, Continental Credit did not validate this debt prior to reporting this on the credit report. We had insurance at the time and there was no bill that wasn’t covered. Second, this is past the FCRA limitation of 7 years. This bill is from XX/XX/2008 if it is even valid. I have tried to deal with them but they refuse to respond to my requests. They just keep trying to collect this debt at all costs despite our objections. At this point it is past the statute of limitations, past FCRA limit on reporting, and violated the FDCPA by not validating the debt when requested, not respecting a disputed account etc etc. They state there is 62 months of payment history. Where do they get this kind of info?
