Cont’d attempts collect debt not owed

On XXXX XXXX, XXXX in The United States Bankruptcy Court of XXXX Massachusetts case # XXXX and under Chapter XXXX debt owed to ” XXXX XXXX ” in the sum of {$820.00} was discharged. XXXX XXXX received a XXXX of Notice of this discharge on XXXX XXXX, XXXX and that is the only account I have ever had under my name and social security there after.
On or about XXXX of XXXX I noticed a ” Pinnacle Credit Services ” reporting on my credit reports that I owed them {$820.00}. When I called regarding this debt I was told it was for a XXXX XXXX account I had recently opened. After explaining to them that this debt was discharged and providing them the above information nothing was done to correct the issue.
Instead I received harassing phone calls saying that they were taking me to court ( which never happened XXXX. They told me they were not responsible for removing or reporting information to the credit bureau ‘s and gave me numbers to Vision Financial at XXXX and XXXX XXXX XXXX at XXXX which I spoke with both who simply told me that XXXX was responsible for this.
I have gone as far as to call XXXX XXXX ‘s corporate offices and they verified with me that the account I had with them was discharged through my bankruptcy in XXXX and that because of that they would not re-open an account for me under my social security without a large security deposit for 10 years!
The way Pinnacle is reporting on all XXXX of my credit reports is that this debt is in collections and current and it has been damaging my credit for almost TWO YEARS.
I am reporting them to the Attorney General as well and my next step will be to hire a personal attorney if you or they can not assist which I will expect Pinnacle to pay for.
I would greatly appreciate your help as I have been working very hard at improving my credit.
This company is awful and destroys people.
Thank you
