Consumer Complaint: XXXX , XXXX XXXX XXXX , XXXX . Of XXXX XXXX, Oklahoma sent a process server to my home without any previous contact stating they have sued me for a debt collection from the past. I was sure I had paid this debt in the past but apparently not. This took place on XX/XX/2018. Since then I had made payment arrangements with them to pay {$50.00} a month towards a debt totaling {$1100.00}. I have made 7 payments to them so far. I checked my credit and it showed I had been making payments and it was down to {$810.00}. The last payment I made was on XX/XX/2018. A week later I received another notice in the mail stating I had not been making any payments and my balance was {$1100.00} and I needed to make payments or I would be garnished or sued again. I emailed them and told them I had made 7 payments and that my debt was down to {$810.00}. They also hit my credit report for being in collections and not paying which hurt my credit score badly. I have documented proof of my payments and dates and the original debt amount etc. they havent responded to my email in a month.
