Consumer Complaint: Case # XXXX is the reference number for this. They want to resolve this by having me make a payment. This debt is around 2800.00. I can’t afford that and could not go high for a settlement because I have only SSD which can not be garnished. It is my only income. They threatened to keep the judgment on me for 20 years. They are trying to ruin my life. And I have no money to give. I included what I own in last case and it’s 300 or less. This is harassment and scare tactics. I am going through the cfpb to keep everything on a record to protect myself. Please stop checking my credit and other finances which are none. I even received a letter that I wasn’t allowed to have a block on my credit while I was going through ID theft. You can’t do that. I want to be left alone
