Product: Medical debt
Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: I have repeatedly requested proof of this medical debt being mine but the address wasnt mine, I didnt have a child at that hospital, and I lived in a different state at the time the claimed services were provided. They wont send me any proof with an actual signature and I sent a copy of my lease at the time they claim I had services. I was also sent a full copy of the persons medical information which is a violation of HIPPA. They have multiple collections on my report and refuse to remove any of them and theyre charging interest on it so its hurting my score more and more. I have gone 3 or four rounds with these people.
