Consumer Complaint: I have a collection on my credit report from a collection agency called XXXX XXXX XXXX. I disputed the account with the credit bureaus and I was informed by XXXX to also file a complaint. XXXX stated to me, to file the complaint when I told them I have 2 collection agencies on my report who claim they are collecting for them. I was advised to file a complaint and dispute with the credit bureaus because they did not send or assign anything in my name to a collection agency. I actually have two collections on my credit reports who claim they are collecting for XXXX XXXX. XXXX XXXX XXXX and XXXX XXXX. I am filing complaints on both companies bc they are illegally attempting to collect on debts they clearly do not own. How is it possible for 2 collection agencies to be trying to collect on the same debt?? XXXX XXXX did not assign the debts. They have yet to properly validate the debt according to the FDCRA. Please remove this bogus collection from my reports and I will not hesitate to take legal action.
