Product: Medical debt
Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: Received debt collect bill from Account Resolution Services a debt collection agency, on XX/XX/XXXX about charges from XXXX. The provider makes no sense, I called ars twice to get more details, but they refuse to disclose info, was told i need a lawyer. I also requested in writing via snail mail who sent them this debt, no answer. I believe it is an attempt at a fraudulent collection, as i had insurance in all of XXXX, and my insurance company never received any bill from provider shown in ars collection attempt. I am asking consumer finance, to please retrieve relevant specific information about original debt, or request ars remove collection attempt, or i will take legal action.
