Consumer Complaint: I received a collection letter from XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX WA XXXX Phone : ( XXXX ) XXXX in XX/XX/2018 regarding a debt from XXXX that in my recollection was paid in full. The debt was for {$450.00}. I called the collection agency and asked them to validate and verify the debt. I was sent a bill from XXXX, that simply showed a balance, but did not provide any details of the reason for the debt. I called the collection agency the week of XX/XX/XXXX, and after being transferred multiple times, the representative from Convergent explained that they could not find the account and I should call back. I called back and spoke with a representative during the same week, and explained what was sent to me. She was kind and empathetic and said they would send a detailed, itemized bill that would explain the debt. I heard nothing after that. I was notified on or around XX/XX/XXXX that the company reported the debt to XXXX.

I called the collection agency and explained that I still have not received information that validates the debt. The person became combative and said there’s nothing they would do about it. I asked to speak with a supervisor and was hung up on.

I’ve submitted two disputes to XXXX, and the outcome was that the company validated the debt. I have still not received any information that validates this debt, according to the FDCPA guidelines.
