I am submitting this claim in reference to Case No : XXXX, a case I opened against CMRE Financial Services. This debt collection agency is in defiance of the law. In their response to my initial compliant, they stated that they would be placing my file with them in dispute. However, after that statement, I received an offer to settle the account at about 75 % of the amount posted by the provider of service. I called them to explain to them that what they were doing was against the law. I also again requested that they remove the negative information from my credit profile. Their rep was so RUDE! She said that XXXX on two different occasions the in XX/XX/2016 denied payment of my claims. The funny thing is the claims were sent approx. 7 days a part. XXXX is denying that the provider was told that I was not insured. I explained that to her and told her simply the provider just needs to file the claim again for payment. She told me there would not be any other attempt to collect from the insurance company, and that if I wanted the debt settled, I would have to pay the settlement offer. This is a gross violation of the law! She hung up in my face. I called back and asked for a supervisor. I was transferred to a voicemail. However, the system would not accept the message i was trying to leave. I am requesting the the CFPB sanctions CMRE for this nefarious attempt to gain payment by holding my credit hostage. They are not trying to collect a payment from the insurance company or relay pertinent information to their client. They are only interest in increasing their bottom line. It makes one wonder to whom else they are trying to hold hostage in this manner. I want CMRE to delete the negative information they slammed on my credit report. They have already admitted not speaking to me. This is fraud! Pure fraud and nothing else! I am thanking you in advance for your assistance.
