Date Received: 2018-12-28

Product: Other debt

Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: I was a member of XXXX XXXX XXXX, TN for about 3-4 months. I paid through direct deposit and cancelled XX/XX/18 and even went up there in person and they told me I was cancelled and that I had no debt, but I have no proof they said that. They sent me a letter ( which I still have ) on XX/XX/18 telling me I owed them {$16.00} and that my cancellation date was, in fact, on XX/XX/18. I called them a few days after and they said they would delete the debt and that everything was fine. On XX/XX/18, I received mail from Aldous and Associates Law firm ( which is partnered with XXXX ) that they are a debt collector and that I owe them {$65.00}, but I didn’t see the mail until XX/XX/18, because they didn’t send it to my current address, because I am living on-campus. I called them on XX/XX/18 to tell them I wanted to dispute and they told me that they couldn’t help me and to send them a written notification and that if I didn’t have any proof, I would be out of luck, which is when I went searching for my original letter from XXXX. I am sending my dispute hopefully tomorrow with a copy of the letter.
