Product: Other debt

Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: was contacted via mailing on XX/XX/XXXX by a collection / lawyer group. The agency ” XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX ” were seeking payment from me for {$1500.00} for a fraudulent debt dating back to XXXX. This debt was resolved at that time by XXXX fraud services and after investigation removed the debt and others from my credit reports and supposedly from XXXXXXXX XXXX ( XXXX XXXX ) accounts. I immediately enlisted the help from XXXX XXXX fraud resolution services through my legal assistance program. Efforts to obtain fraud resolution papers from this collection agency resulted in two mailings of packets of useless statements and bills. This debt was obviously sold down the line without the resolution being noted, only to harass me once again. I need this laid to rest and not be sold off again to another ” collector ”. fthank you.
