Consumer Complaint: XXXX XXXX XXXX from XXXX XXXX, California has sent me a Pre-Legal Notification/ Debt Collection letter I received on XXXX XXXX, 2018 claiming that I owe {$3300.00} on a XXXX credit card. I do not own a XXXX credit card. The letter threatens legal action if I don’t pay. I contacted them via phone.
