Product: Credit card debt

Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: I have contacted this company several times in regards to this issue. They have not provided me what I needed. I asked portfolio recovery to send me a copy of my itemized bill showing all the charges to this account as well as the contract that states this was mine. This company provided me a bill 6 months after this account was supposedly delinquent. By not providing me an itemized list of charges and the contract you are preventing me from disputing all or part of this bill. I really wish this company would stop giving me the run around. I would like the last bill with all of the charges and the contract that proves this bill is mine. If you can not furnish this information please remove it. How do I know this is not a bill from another XXXX? This could easily be someone else bill as my name is very common.
