Consumer Complaint: On XX/XX/2018 a summons to appear in court for a alleged debt from XXXX XXXX XXXX was found on my front porch, I had never received a bill from this company allowing me to request verification so I then requested validation of this debt via telephone as well as in writing. In return, on XX/XX/2018 I received a package addressed to me with someone elses personal information inside. I then wrote to the company telling them they violated someone else privacy and failed to send me the information that I requested in my name. I also included that I did not want them to handle any accounts of mine due to the untrustworthiness of the company in handling personal information. Whos to say that my personal information was not mailed to the persons information I received? On XX/XX/XXXX, the company sent me billing statements and a but failed to send me the original contract with my signature accepting the line of credit. This company has failed to send me everything I asked for in my request of verification including original line of credit limit, a contract with my signature accepting the alleged debt, and permission from the original creditor allowing them to collect on a debt in SC.
