Consumer Complaint: This company is attempting to collect a debt that has not been VALIDATED or VERIFIED. I asked the company for VALIDATION of this debt and they have failed to do so. They sent me billing statements which is not VALIDATING this debt. Also I’ve previously disputed this company for this same reason and somehow they managed to get back on my report, they did not notify me within the allotted time period they were going to add this back to my credit file. Therefore this needs to be removed from my credit report and this company needs to cease communication with me.
