Consumer Complaint: Creditors Collection Service ( XXXX ) claims I owe money to XXXX XXXX XXXX but I have never gone to them for service. I have requested multiple times to substantiate their claim of debt but they simply give me my name, address, date of service, and medical billing code. In addition, at no point do they show work requested by my physician. When I contacted my physician, I am told they NEVER send anything to XXXX XXXX XXXX. I have contacted my health insurance carrier, and they noted there are two companies using the same billing code for the same date of service. Even this doesn’t seem to phase the collector into investigating this claim further. The collection service continues to hang up on me because they feel what they have given me is enough for me to pay the bill. At this point, they keep hanging up on me and can’t understand why I’m not just paying the bill.
