Consumer Complaint: I had a Home Depot account that went into collections with XXXX XXXX XXXX. I entered into a settlement agreement with XXXX XXXX XXXX and made 1st payment fine with no problem received a confirmation letter in mail for payment. XXXX sent me 2 letters, 1 in the month of XXXX and one in XXXX reminding me that my final settlement payment of {$180.00} was due on by XX/XX/2018. I paid the amount required on the letter on XX/XX/2018 with a rep from their company. On XX/XX/2018 at XXXX I get a call from a XXXX, I believe this is what he said his name was, stating I was short {$63.00}. I advised him female that took my payment said she saw the letter that was mailed to me and agreed amount on letter was correct that I should get a settlement letter within 10 business days. He wanted to argue. I told him he must honor what was place in writing on their letter head, he refused. He then placed me on line with a guy name XXXX XXXX said he was not a supervisor but the person that handles complaints that no manager was there and he refused to argue and told me I need to pay the additional amount. I told him I wasn’t paying anymore this is not what was on their letter, he proceed to tell me that the settlement will be voided and they would go after me. I requested a manager, he said no manager he is the manager. I advised he previously told me there was a manager now there is no manager. I explain to have manager contact me today XX/XX/2018 and hung up on him. This company is not willing to accept what they placed in writing and agreed upon when they took my money for payment. I want Citibank ( HomeDepot ) made aware of this and this company.
