Consumer Complaint: I received a letter from a debt collector, XXXX XXXX XXXX, on XX/XX/XXXX, stating I owe money on an account I do not recognize and threatening to take me to court. The original creditor on the debt collection notice is listed as XXXX XXXX XXXX. I’ve contacted XXXX XXXX XXXX at least twice by phone and both times my contact information was taken and I was told I’d be contacted by their fraud department but I have not received any call back to resolve this matter.
I have responded to XXXX XXXX XXXX via fax on XX/XX/XXXX informing them the account is not mine and is a result of identity fraud but have not received a response from them.
