Consumer Complaint Submission

Date Received: 2018-11-19T00:00:00

Product: Medical debt

Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: Sometime in XXXX, I had sent a debt validation request via certified mail regarding other accounts, and received a response with medical information not at all connected to my identity. This letter included multiple HIPAA violations. In response, I sent another certified letter informing them that not only was it not my debt, but the information provided by them was inadequate to meet the conditions for validation ( please see attachment XXXX ) This eventually lead to the removal of this specific account from my credit report.

Since, I have had several more appear on my credit report with I have been unable to get a certified letter to Plus4 about, making an attempt to reach resolution as I am not sure these accounts even belong to me. Each of my letters were mailed to the address listed on my credit report, and returned as ” Undeliverable : refused ”. At this point I made an attempt to contact Plusfour via telephone, and was told that they do not accept certified mail at their address. I believe this is a violation as they do no allow me to request a validation.

On XX/XX/XXXX, I sent certified letter to debt collector requesting debt validation This was marked refused.

Since attempt to contact plus4 via the appropriate legal channels, multiple accounts have appeared on my report, and I am unable to validate any of them due to their refusal of my attempts.
