Consumer Complaint: On XX/XX/2018 I called Diversified Consultants regarding a collection on my Credit from XXXX. I asked the representative to send proof that the debt is mine and the representative stated she could send a copy of my bill. I told the representative that that is not proof. Representative argued that a bill is proof and that i would have to pay the balance to get removed. 42 days later I received a bill in the mail with charges but no actual validation of the debt. Called again and was given the same run around. I have no knowledge of the debt and the company is refusing to provide proof or to assist with removing inaccurate information.
