Consumer Complaint: I am requesting verification of the account from XXXX, account # XXXX on my Experian report. Experian has been reporting a balance that is owed. I have paid the balance of in full. In Result of paying my balance of in full I have received the Congratulation letter dated XX/XX/XXXX and I have also received a free and clear Title for the vehicle ( Please see attachment # 1 and # 2 ). I have also disputed this account several times with Experian and with XXXX. I have attached all letters with certified copies.
I spoke with XXXX from Experian on XX/XX/XXXX and XX/XX/XXXX. On XX/XX/XXXX, He stated XXXX has verified the information as accurate. On XX/XX/XXXX at XXXX we got a Rep on the phone from XXXX and she stated she will send me the information I requested which was a payment declined or Bounce check. I am sure I paid my balance off in full. But no one is able to provide me with, why I have a balance. The Rep from XXXX did mail a typed letter stating my balance, ( attachment # 3 ) but does not show any type of payment history where the payment was not successfully. I spoke with XXXX on XX/XX/XXXX and stated No updated information were reported from XXXX. I have attached all documents for you guys to review and come to an agreement to remove to negative Account off my Experian Report. If you have any question please contact me at XXXX or t the above address.
