I have messaged JH Portfolio several times stating that this debt does not belong to me, i have requested copy of the original contract with my wet ink signature, i requested debt validation, i have requested voice recording or video surveillance of me signing up with the original creditor or agreeing to pay JH Portfolio or the original creditor. I requested a photo copy of my id and a wet ink scanned signature. I have requested JH Portfolio to provide a copy of certified letter and receipt that they claim that was sent to me. This company has not provided any of this after several request. This company keeps sending me in the mail a computer printed credit card statement with a name similar to mine with a balance that doesn’t show the purchase history, this statement doesn’t show what was purchased, where or when. This statement does not show itemized items of how this balance of { {$730.00} } and { {$1900.00} } came to be. It appears to a be a fake credit card statement and a fraudulent debt generated by JH Portfolio. I have never agreed to this debt, i never signed any contract or agreement to pay this debt with JH Portfolio or any original creditor. Methods being used by JH Portfolio to validate this debt as accurate are inaccurate, this debt can not be validated!
