ERC – CFPB Complaint

By on November 1, 2018
Consumer Complaint Submission

Date Received: 2018-10-12T00:00:00

Product: Other debt

Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: I was alerted through a credit monitoring agency that a new collection was placed on my credit report. I immediately looked to see what it was because I have not made any changes to my credit and found the collection agency name is ERC and original creditor is XXXX XXXX. It claims the open date is XX/XX/2018. The status is open and the last reported date is showing XX/XX/2018. The amount of the balance shows to be {$700.00} and it is placed for collections. I have not opened any account with this creditor and do not use this company and never will. I don’t know if the company has made a mistake or if my identity was stolen but I can assure you I did not open this account and I want it removed immediately. It’s amazing to me that in a 4 month time span without ever sending me a notice in the mail, a creditor can just place an account on my credit report for a collection I don’t owe. It should be a criminal offense and come with a large fine and jail time for the CEO. I’m sure XXXX XXXX XXXX make enough money that they need to stop attempting to steal from a working middle class family.

Company: ERC

State/Zip: AR

Company Response to Complaint: Closed with explanation

Was Company Response Timely: Yes

Did Consumer Dispute Company Response: N/A
