Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: Receivables Performance Management LLC ( RPM ), a national debt collector, is attempting to collect on a debt that has been processed and accepted by XXXX, an insurance company. The alleged debt arises from XXXX XXXX in the amount of {$4000.00} for four devices and on months service with late fees ( two phones for {$680.00} each, two tablets for {$760.00} each and one hotspot device for {$85.00} ). The telephone numbers and corresponding insurance claim numbers associated with each device are XXXX claim number XXXX for an XXXX, XXXX claim number XXXX for an XXXX, XXXX claim number XXXX for an XXXX, XXXX claim number XXXX for an XXXX, and XXXX for the service on the hot spot device which I own. I tried to pay the {$85.00} for the one month of service with late fee, but I was told by XXXX that the account ( account number XXXX ) had been forwarded to collections. I then informed XXXX XXXX that they are attempting to collect twice and are double dipping while committing at least two criminal acts of wire fraud and insurance fraud as well as violating State and Federal debt collation regulations and laws. I have elected not to have my devices replaced after the claims were accepted by the insurance company and, as such, XXXX had billed me for and placed charges on my account for the replacement devices which has now been forwarded to collections with RPM. While I understand the norm is to replace the devices and then bill the account for the newly replaced devices that is not the case in this instance. Therefore, no money is due by me for the devices that the insurance company paid out on, all of which were in use at the time of loss. XXXX XXXX has sold the debt associated with my account to RPM for an undisclosed amount and the debt collector is now trying to solicit payment on a debt that, except for the {$85.00}, has already been, or should have been, satisfied. In resolution of the double dipping attempt by RPM I would like full forgiveness of the debt by both RPM and XXXX XXXX along with updated credit reporting data provided to all credit reporting agencies. I would also like this CFPB complaint to be sent to the appropriate State and federal regulatory agencies for a thorough and complete investigation to determine if this practice and type of behavior by the companies involved is the norm as a matter of ordinary business practices including, but not limited to the California Public Utilities Commission ( CPUC ).
