Consumer Complaint: I contacted Alliance collections about putting 8 collections on my credit for the same collection and how it was an unfair practice for them to use my doctor dates of services and the broken up bills that the hospital sent them for the grand total, when those dates of services and those bills were never sent to me like that in the first place. They wrote back to me telling me its basically legal for them to do that..and sent the list of the dates of service. Those billls were sent to my insurance and then sent to me. So i got them as a big bill. I know you ( Allaince ) got contracted to pay off one amount. Not all of the little amounts you are are trying to use as your bills to ruin my credit and make me pay faster. It only makes me want to contact a lawyer and see what i can do because i have proof that it was one bill from the hospital. being on XXXX, is hard getting by anyway, and when you do this to people to hurt them it is terrible and it is unethical i feel to ruin someone’s credit when they are paying you just because you want them to pay quicker. I know I owe, it is not about that or the amount. It is about you putting 8 hits on my credit for one bill from the hospital. That is ridiculous. That is unfair and unethical practices.
