I was NEVER sent a bill of the original amount or given an opportunity to pay. When this company started calling, they asked for XXXX XXXX ( my name is XXXX ) and told me repeatedly that the last XXXX of my SSN # DID NOT MATCH the account on file and they COULD NOT talk to me about the debt. This happened over 10 times. Then this bill shows up on my credit report, upon seeing it there in XXXX I called IMMEDIATELY to take care of it! They again had XXXX XXXX as the name on the account and told me that my SSN did not match the account holder ‘s. It took hours to get this straightened out. This account was settled immediately. This ended up in collection due to THEIR horrific error.
