Consumer Complaint: I lived in an apartment complex in XXXX Texas, which we moved out of in XX/XX/XXXX ( XX/XX/XXXX ). On XX/XX/XXXX, I received a statement of deposit accounting from XXXX XXXX XXXX, which is the parent company of the complex we lived in. The statement of deposit accounting directed me to pay {$240.00} to XXXX XXXX XXXX/IQ Data. On XX/XX/XXXX, I sent a money order to XXXX XXXX XXXX/IQ Data for the outstanding fees, per Steadfast Management. In XX/XX/XXXX, I received my check in the mail from XXXX XXXX XXXX/IQ Data, with a note attached which reads ” As we are unable to locate this account this check/money order to you. Thank You, IQ Data International Accounting Office ”. On XX/XX/XXXX, I wrote letter to both I.Q. Data International and XXXX XXXX at XXXX XXXX/XXXX XXXX XXXX. In my letters I disputed the increased fees because of through no fault of mine they had charged me interest. On XX/XX/XXXX, I received a letter from IQ Data International , Inc., Account Rep. XXXX XXXX, again asking me for {$250.00}, which was the original debt plus {$8.00} in Interest. I still dispute the interest charges. On XX/XX/XXXX I received an email from XXXX XXXX, Regional Manager for XXXX XXXX XXXX. In her email she admits there was a problem with their transferring of files from her company to IQ Data International. That there would be no negative impact on our credit because there was a 45 day race period. On XX/XX/XXXX, I used my XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX debit card and paid the original debit {$240.00} ( I have the transaction in my account statement ). Yesterday XX/XX/XXXX, I received a telephone call from a Representative of IQ Data International who said, I still owed the debt. IQ Data International has killed our FICO credit rating. We want an acknowledgement from IQ Data International that our debt is paid and was paid as far back as XX/XX/XXXX. We want our credit rating restored to it’s prior ranking. We want an apology.
