Consumer Statement:

Got a notice from Universal Fidelity, LP Legal Successor of Hollywood Video claiming to be collecting a $19.99 debt for Hollywood Video from 1 DVD rental back in 2009. I am not sure what the charge is for, as I know the DVD that they are referencing was returned on time.

This must be a scam of some sort, since I am getting a notice from a collection agency over 2 years after the company went bankrupt. I even tried calling the number on the notice, and all I got was a message machine that said that their mailbox was full and to go to their website to pay the amount owed. Even when I hit “0” there was no operator who picked up. Kind of fishy for a collection agency.

Consumer Action Taken:

Apparently this complaint against Universal Fidelity is not uncommon, as the BBB has gotten over 3000 complaints regarding this very matter. The BBB does recommend that I write my Attorney General and lodge a complaint regarding this matter, and inform Universal Fidelity of this as well.
