Consumer Complaint: On XX/XX/2018, I sent a letter of validation to Amcol Systems Collection Agency.
On XX/XX/2018, Amcol Systems returned to me a document that shows an account with my name on it and an address in which I have never resided at. I requested that they send me a signed contract or a hospital registration with my signature from the original creditor. They have not provided me with any proof that this debt belongs to me.
On XX/XX/2018, I sent a letter of removal demand. This item has not been removed from my credit file and is still being reported even during the entire dispute process.
On XX/XX/2018, I sent a 2nd request of removal letter. Request is still being ignored.
