Product: Credit card debt
Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: I have had a traditional XXXX account for over 40 years. There is no balance on this account.
I started to receive a bill for a XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX account for approximately XXXX in XX/XX/2016.
I have never opened this account or charged anything on it. I do not have this credit card. When I called XXXX they had no record of the account and I was advised to call XXXX XXXX who also said they have no such account.
No one was able to give me any explanation nor could they cancel something they had no record of. However I have continued to be billed for this.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
