Consumer Complaint: Hi – I just received a call from my bank – XXXX XXXX of a Legal Order from XXXX XXXX with a number to call – XXXX.
Called them and they directed me to another number stating this is not what they can discuss as they could not view fully the account which was bought by XXXX XXXX through XXXX XXXX XXXX.
I eventually called the number they gave me which was for XXXX XXXX XXXX. I spoke to a legal rep who is named XXXX XXXX and advised that i allegedly have a bill from XXXX card in XXXX which was filed with the court with an address on file.
I challenged why they did not try to contact me or notify before having the court put a levy on my bank account.
I do not own a XXXX card in XXXX, no correspondences whatsoever. I demanded a statement or bill which they said they will look into and furnish but damage has been done with my account.
XXXX XXXX XXXX do have my current information as i dealt with them early this year on a XXXX bill owed in XXXX which was eventually paid off.
It is shocking they went behind me to file a motion in court and they lied they only had my old address on file which i never received any communications from them on the XXXX card statement for XXXX.
I hope i will be able to be compensated under FDCPA for harassment unfair judgement.
There are statute of limitations on credit card debts also allegedly owed in the state of New Jersey.
Please look into this and help out so they can do the necessary by providing all relevant documents at the earliest and lift immediately the hold on my account with restoring what they already deducted which is fraud. I was never contacted.
