Consumer Complaint: Acme has contacted me through mail and by phone about a XXXX dollar balance of some sort of bill. I have tried to reach out to the agency several times to verify what the bill is for, who the original creditor was, and as well repeatedly requested copies of the original bill to verify it belongs to me and for what causes. Acme representatives have been extremely rude and have even resulted to sending me letters making false accusations with ALL CAPITAL LETTERS which seems a very aggressive form of communication. When I ask who the original creditor is and for them to verify the account is or was mine previously I am directed to multiple agencies and circled back around. In more detail I am told by Acme I need to contact the previous collection agency for any billing questions and when I do that I am routed rightfully back to Acme because the previous agency is not the current or active agent for trying to collect some debt no one can verify or show physical proof of. The company has threatened to take legal and credit reporting actions against me without proper cause or resolving or addressing anything to do with the bill itself allegedly claiming this is a debt in which I have occurred I haves sent several letters to the company including certified request and still the company refuses to address the verification of the bill. I informed them If this was from a particular incident that I would be more than willing to provide them with the insurance I had at the time if there was somehow some billing error and the insurance company was not billed but the company has refused to take the opportunity to resolve as the many other attempts I have made. The company has also falsified the address to which they have mailed documentation to me. I feel they have purposely sent mail to the wrong address to falsely warrant evidence of them sending documentations to me. The only reason I received one particular letter is because a neighbor I knew hand delivered it to me. The company claimed in its last letter to me that I have ignored them yet I have copies of the certified letters I sent as well as the receipts as well.
