Issue: Written notification about debt
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: XXXX card paid off in XXXX was sold years later to 3rd party claiming not paid off. Sent in papers proving this to all parties including credit reporting agencies. The debt was removed in XXXX by all bureaus after a thorough investigation, multiple faxes showing a letter from XXXX stating it was paid in full including attorney letter that we got involved. Now last few months, I and my wife ‘s phone are getting different 3rd party threatening phone calls with no paperwork mailed to me, no notices whatsoever, just fake phone numbers that appear to be local, but are actually XXXX numbers. The latest was from MSK and Associates XXXX but the number showed up on my caller id as XXXX from XXXX Tn.We lost paperwork in the Hurricane Harvey, but proof is listed on all credit bureaus and with previous third party companies that I faxed all our papers to. So tired of these harassing companies illegally selling and passing our information from place to place on old, paid off, out of statutes of TN debt collecting laws. Please stop them.
