Product: Medical debt
Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: I have a medical collection account placed on my credit report by Aargon Agency. They claim the original creditor is XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX. I contacted XXXX XXXX and I was informed that they did not send anything to collections with Aargon Agency. I was informed to submit this complaint, and dispute directly with the collection agency. Well I attempted to make contact with this collection agency and and was never able to get anyone on the phone. I then sent a certified dispute letter per my attorney and the mail came back unable to deliver. The address is an address that is reporting under the creditor information. This medical debt does not belong to me and the original creditor states they DID NOT place a collection with this company. I’m unsure of what kind of company this is because I can’t seem to get anyone to explain this collection to me and why it’s being reported on my credit file.
