Consumer Complaint: This is not my account and I don’t understand why the Diversified Consultants collection agency keeps adding it to my credit report every 6 months.

On XX/XX/2018, a false debt of {$480.00} was reported to XXXX and XXXX. This false debt has an account name of ” XXXX XXXX ”, with an account number of ” XXXX ” and open date of ” XX/XX/2018 ”.

XX/XX/2018, a false account shows a date opened of XX/XX/2018, with an account name of ” XXXX ” and an account number of ” XXXX ”. XX/XX/2018, I disputed this with XXXX and XXXX, and the credit bureaus deleted this false information from my credit report.

In XX/XX/2018, I contacted the Diversified Consultants collection company in regards to this false account. I spoke with a representative who had no information other than my partial first name and my full last name. The representative kept asking for my social security number, my date of birth and my mailing address. I did not give any of this information. I asked the representative to give me some information in regards to this false debt, the representative said they would not give me information until I gave them my social security number, my date of birth and my mailing address.

I do have a work phone that uses XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX. I am concerned that this false debt may have picked up my name from that account. I have not received any statements nor information in the mail in regards to this false account.
