Consumer Complaint: I was living at XXXX XXXX XXXX in XXXX XXXX until a month before XXXX XXXX on XX/XX/XXXX. XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX are given to soldiers a month or 2 before XXXX so soldiers can get out of leases and turn into certain creditors for lower interest rates during a XXXX cycle. I received my XXXX XXXX on XXXX XX/XX/XXXX and turned them into the office at XXXX XXXX. They did not honor my XXXX XXXX. I continued to clear my apartment in a timely manner and had paid first and last months rent upon moving in. To include a security deposit that would have covered any cleaning upon me leaving. I did not receive my security deposit back and paid my pet fee to the front office. My mother co-signed the lease with me and this is on both of our credit reports for over 6k in fees. For one the apartment complex never ed my mom or myself before leaving in XX/XX/XXXX. The debt was sold to a collection agency while I was XXXX, and me and my mom have been dealing with harassing phone calls ever since. My mom started receiving calls shortly after me leaving and she asked the collection agency ( Hunter Warfield ) to provide a by name list of charges against me. She did not receive a by list charges until XX/XX/XXXX … .and over a thousand dollars in interest charges from a collection agency we had no contract with. My mother has sent to me the bills they have sent as well as the by name list of charges in which I find to be totally fraudulent. I should never of had a fee for last month rent because I paid first and last month before moving in, I also accrued fraudulent cleaning charges that my security deposit would have covered, I also should not of had a lease termination fee of over XXXX with XXXX XXXX. Not to mention pet fees and so on. The list is crazy. To think this is how companies operate and treat deploying soldiers. And then sell the fraudulent debt to a head hunting collection agency on fraudulent grounds. And then to have fees of over 1.5k from a company you never had a contract with and bought this fraudulent debt on pennies to the dollar. To get this rectified would be wonderful. I have tried disputing with all three credit bureaus with no luck. I truly feel this is my last step to get this resolved. I am a father of five and can not purchase a house for my family because of this on my credit report. I am almost XXXX and have never owned a home for my family. Please help this XXXX veteran clear me and my mothers name in this matter. Supporting documents follow …
