Cont’d attempts collect debt not owed

While checking my credit report I noticed a collection account from a XXXX XXXX XXXX stating that I owe {$500.00} from an Ace Cash Advance. I have had dealings with them in the past after I had received several spam/fraud emails from another collection agency XXXX that was threatening to ” take me to the courthouse if I do not pay ” I asked for proof of the debt being that I am a victim of identity theft in past. The never sent me any proof of the debt. I filed a complaint with my states attorney General, and they stated that the emails I was receiving were fraudulent. I also filed a complaint with the CFPB. After this, and not receiving any feedback from any XXXX, I thought the matter was closed. Now this collection agency XXXX XXXX XXXX has placed this account on my credit report which has caused my credit score to drop nearly XXXX points! I am in the process of looking for a home to rent and this has severely affected my chances of getting approved by potential agents/ landlords. I have sent letters to all ” collection agencies ” that are claiming to represent ACE cash advance with no response.
