Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: I was called on XX/XX/18 from a company going by the name ” XXXX XXXX XXXX ” about an alleged overdraft amount of {$320.00} sent to them for collections from an old Wells Fargo account I had almost 10 years ago. They told me after fees the amount went up to {$580.00}. They followed that up with an offer to take off {$180.00} if I paid the remaining {$400.00} today. If I didn’t then there would be legal action against me. It all began with someone calling me telling me important documents were waiting for me and they were quick and got me very nervous. It felt very sketchy. They rushed off after telling me to call XXXX regarding file # XXXX. I spoke with an ” XXXX ” at that company and she told me that I had to pay. Her number is XXXX. Because it felt so odd I went to Wells Fargo to talk to them about this. The personal banker I spoke with spoke to someone and they told me that it looked like a scam. They said that they had no records of debt or anything sent to collections or any other 3rd party. Wells Fargo confirmed that I owe them no money.
