Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: Disputed this account on all three credit bureaus and asked for validation … .not address verification. Asked for chain of title if account was purchased from another country. Asked for ” itemized ” breakdown of all charges, interest, fees, penalties that result in the alleged amount owed. I received nothing back from them except a XXXX bill that clearly does not show any of this. And also proves that I DO NOT have an account or obligation to Diversified Consultants. I asked that this be removed from all 3 major credit bureaus and all collection attempts be ceased.
In attachment labeled ” Diversified Consultants 2nd Response ” they sent a letter to my father XXXX XXXX. Not sure why they would involve him in this matter. But they are doing any and everything to NOT VALIDATE this debt and show where I owe Diversified consultants and NOT XXXX.
