Consumer Complaint: I have been making payments in increments of {$50.00} per month as I have last agreed with the Attorney office starting around XXXX ( not sure if exact date but around time of collection activity reported on court case ) to then attorney XXXX XXXX office. I missed a few payments of the years, case resulted back in court. As of XXXX I was told Attorney XXXX office would merged with Ms.XXXX attorney office. I was told to still still send payment attn : Mr.XXXX etc, in which I did. However, over the course of time I would ask for balance and it was only told that the account was accruing interest at 9 % ( but the attorney office not sure if monthly or annually at this rate ) but my balance never changed. I have requested several times for an accounting of account so that I can determine whats being applied to principle vs interest etc. I was never provided this information and to this day when I call my balance remains the same even though I have made payments that I have proof of as well as the attorney office confirms. But they can not explain to me why my balance continue to remains the same even after payment posted. In addition I have received documentation and pay out as part of a class action law suite against XXXX XXXX due to illegal interest charge. Please note although my case was in collection I was currently paying and the attorney office took action in court for wage garnishment as well as their continue practice of illegal debt practice. I feel due to my balance continues to increase and or stay the same without proof provided to me of payment that this collection case needs to be investigated further due to it could be other in the same situation being taken advantage of. Also please note as of XXXX my state Attorney general Office please see article won class action legal suite against XXXX XXXX XXXX : Keeping Communities Safe XX/XX/XXXX XXXX REACHES {$3.00} MILLION SETTLEMENT WITH LENDER FOR SELLING PRODUCT WITH HIDDEN, SKY-HIGH INTEREST RATES Attorney General XXXX Bans Company from Selling Expensive Loan Product in Illinois and Cracks Down on Other Lenders Operating Illegally in the State XXXX Attorney General XXXX XXXX today announced she is cracking down on lenders in Illinois that are illegally selling small-dollar loans riddled with hidden costs and fees, including a {$3.00} million settlement with All Credit Lenders that has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars in restitution for consumers across the state.
