Consumer Complaint: I received 3 return packets from XXXX. I opened one and saw they were phone return packets. I found XXXX ‘s fraud reporting phone number and tried to contact them, but only received automated messages. (XX/XX/2018 ) I went to XXXX store at XXXX XXXX, XXXX XXXX and told them of this fraudulent activity and asked to check the name as spelt on the envelope ” XXXX XXXX ”, note not same as my name. They could not find anything, and said they could take any fraud discovery or fraud report information. So I mailed back these packets with notes on Fraud activity.
Later I complained on CFCB about collection agent hired by XXXX, and now an even more abusive collection has been hired by XXXX.
( Saturday XX/XX/2018 onwards ) I have been getting many calls from Diversified Adjustments, and I told them that I have reached out to XXXX numerous times. But they still threatened me with consequences. Previous history below ( resolved with XXXX ) I checked the Fraud website on XXXX, and noticed it was too complicated, and asking me to reveal lots of personal information. While in the meantime I am not able to reach any human at XXXX. The web reports on Fraudulent department at XXXX were also bad.
