Cont’d attempts collect debt not owed

review

I had a medical bill of {$540.00}, in which I was overcharged from XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX in XXXX XXXX XXXX. I called the billing dept at ( XXXX ) XXXX and they agreed to reduce it to {$270.00}. I paid them right away to clear up the bill to get a piece of mind!

On XXXX, XXXX, I went to XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX open a checking account and to apply for a credit card.

On XXXX XXXX, XXXX, I received a denial letter from XXXX XXXX XXXX due to a deliquency, which was listed as the collection account I had already paid for.

I requested my credit report from XXXX on XX/XX/XXXX, and I found out that Syndicated Office Systems ( whom also goes by Central Financial Control ) put my account to collection. I called the phone # listed within my credit report, ( XXXX ) XXXX, and was told my account was ” settled in full ” and had a {$0.00} balance. I requested them to mail me a letter.

On XXXX XXXX, XXXX, Central Financial Control sent me a letter to confirm that my account was ” settled in full ” and that it would take 30 days to update my account with XXXX, XXXX and XXXX XXXX. I gave this letter to XXXX XXXX XXXX for them to process it again and attempted to apply for a credit card there a second time.

On XXXX XXXX, XXXX, I received another rejection letter from XXXX XXXX XXXX. They advised me that Syndicated Office Systems ( or Central Financial Control ) NEVER removed my account from collection.

On XXXX XXXX, XXXX, I called the phone # listed within the letter that was sent to me from Central Financial Control, ( XXXX ) XXXX, & spoke with representative XXXX. He said that his company POLICY will not remove it, even though he understood that I had already resolved the case & had a {$0.00} balance. I requested to talk with the manager & was transferred to XXXX XXXX. I had to leave a voice message on his voice mailbox because he was not available at the time.

On XXXX XXXX, XXXX, since I NEVER received any calls back from XXXX XXXX or any one at Central Financial Control, I decided to call XXXX XXXX Billing Department at ( XXXX ) XXXX & was advised that Syndicated Office Systems is in charge of handling all medical billing. They could not see my account information within their computer system.

It worries me that if the hospital or medical center gives Syndicated Office System or Central Financial Control too much power to access to their patients ‘ information from their computer systems, then who knows what they can do with the patients ‘ confidential information?!

I attempted to make another call to Central Financial Control and spoke with representative XXXX, who then transferred me to XXXX XXXX # XXXX ( floor leader ). He advised me to fax a letter to ” Inquiry Resolution Service ” at ( XXXX ) XXXX to seek for help, but he DOUBTS that they will remove my account from collection.
