Consumer Complaint: AD Astra Recovery Services is reporting on my credit report in the amount of {$1500.00} account # XXXX which is false and its keeping me from obtaining credit.

* Were you named on the original contract with the original creditor?
* If not, do you have a contract between your company and me, signed by both parties?
* If not, produce the document authorizing the release of my information from the original creditor to you ( Power of Attorney ), signed by me. It is against the law for a creditor to share your information to any party other than the account holder without their authorization. Giving your information to a 3rd party without your knowledge or consent is perpetrating identity theft, * Do you have first hand knowledge about everything that has transpired with the alleged account, including when the account allegedly belonged to the original creditor and any other parties prior to your acquisition?
* Do you have written consent to collect information about me and to share information about me with the credit reporting agencies – in writing, signed by me?

Validation is the documentation backing up your testimony. One without the other is hearsay and inadmissible.

The XXXX XXXX XXXX – XXXX XXXX to XXXX ( Agreement ) states that if you don’t address even one item as requested, you agree that my statement of fact is true.
