I applied for a new credit card and was declined. Once I was declined, I checked my credit report and noticed that Comenity/XXXX reported my account as delinquent. I called the number to figure out what was going on with my account ( I did in fact have an account that I thought was current ). Upon calling, I was told that my account had fallen behind and I was unsure of why when everything was set to auto-pay. I came to realize that when I moved and lost my debit card that everything was set to auto-pay with was replaced, the numbers on the card were different and the account began falling behind. My phone number is different that what the account was listed ( from what I was told ) along with my address. My address is currently XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX, XXXX, NY XXXX. I never received a call or letter showing that my account was behind — at least to an active address and phone number. Once I spoke with the representative, I was told that if I paid the amount requested, the negative account could and would in fact be removed.
In speaking to someone from Comenity recently, I was told that is not the case. I then requested & required that they send all communication they had on file to me for my file to my current address so that I could have record of it but got the run around stating that they were unable to do so. I know for a fact that the calls are recorded so there is no reason they could not pull the transcripts pulling my call log from last year when I settled the account and was told it would be removed. I ‘ve also requested any written correspondence before and after the account was settled both showing what I ‘ve owed and their follow up validating my payment, etc. I ‘ve still not received this information and am getting the run around from them every time I call.
When I called them today, XXXX XXXX, 2017, the automated system says that I still have an outstanding balance of $ XXXX. This should NOT be the case!
