They did delete the information from my credit report IN XX/XX/XXXX but they are now re adding the information back onto my report IN XX/XX/XXXX and THE ACCOUNT STILL DOES NOT BELOW TO ME!! THE ACCOUNT THEY HAVE IS FOR SOMEONE ELSE THAT FRAUDULENTLY USED MY SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER! AS YOU SEE IN THE NOTICE THEY STATED A ” XXXX XXXX ” WHICH IS NOT ME AND THE CONTACT INFORMATION THAT IS NOTED IS NOT MINE! THE COMPANY IS DOING FRAUDULENT THINGS BY REMOVING THE DEBT THAT DIDN’T BELONG TO ME AND THEY ARE NOW RE ADDING THE SAME DEBT WHICH THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DO!!
