Consumer Complaint: This problem with this company has been going on for quite a while with professional collection company in XXXX, Ga. i was forced to sign an agreement with the previous company XXXX XXXX. I was told back in XX/XX/2012 i could have my wages garnished or if i dont pay itll hurt my credit. The company tried to accuse me of breaking stuff in the apartment that they knew was already broken and things i took pictures of. The company wouldnt come fix the door locks until after i called several times and i stayed by myself. The duplex flooded from the dishwater not turning off and the heater in the duplex smelled as if it was burning when i turned it on and someone tried to break in through the back door that needed fixing. XXXX XXXX agreed that they would lower the balance after i told them how i was treated and my horrible experience. XXXX XXXX XXXX said they wont change the balance from {$1300.00} to {$1000.00} until i pay for it. They have NOT SENT/provided any documentation about the debt being mine. The debt is not mine considering the horrible service they put me through and the fact i was told that i could leave the duplex after giving ample time to fix problems. I dont owe professional collection due to the fact the debt was sold, its false and they havent provided documentation after Ive filed SEVERAL disputes. This is preventing my daughter and i from moving. We will be homeless if this is not removed. Not to mention Ive contacted this company over the last 4 1/2 Years trying to get this removed.
