Consumer Complaint: In XX/XX/XXXX I switched phone carries from XXXX to XXXX. XXXX paid the rest of my phone and i had some charges left over for accessories that i had. On XX/XX/2018 the rest of the balance owed to XXXX was paid. The check cleared XX/XX/2018. A few months after i started getting calls from a debt collector several times a day but never recieved any mail saying something was owed. I thought it was a scam becuse I paid all my bills. Recently i tried getting a credit card and was denied saying I had something in collections. When i talked to the collections company they said it was for XXXX. I went to XXXX to see why they sent me to collections when I paid the remaining balance on my old account. When i went in store it showed I did pay the remaining balance but in their system it showed that the account was only just cancelled not cancelled in XX/XX/XXXX. Then after about 7 months of my account actually being canceled they charged me for a months bill to a phone that was no longer in service and a phone number they no longer had. I sent a dispute into the collection agency since XXXX said it was out of their hands. I had to send it several times since they kept saying they never got it. When they reviewed my dispute they said it was still due in full. I should not have to pay for something that is not my fault. XXXX made an error which I have proof of and yet the collection agency says i still have to pay.
