Consumer Complaint: XXXX has again tried to pull an illegal move again by throwing a very old debt on my credit report. Whats Illegal about it well lets take a look 1. In Texas we have a Statue Limitation Law of 4 years on Debts, which means apparently when this debt was created back in XX/XX/XXXX-XX/XX/XXXX its should be illegel for these people to call my phone or try to collect on a debt that is past the Debt Laws in Texas.
2. I have talked to XXXX and the time they claimed I had service with them, I have told them I did not I had service with XXXX XXXX at the time apparently after my request not to years ago they left my service on with me not even having any of their equipment in my home.
Now I will be sending an email to the CEO of XXXX/XXXX contesting this debt that I feel is not owed.
