The collection agency is scamming me for a debt I don't owe.
problem date: 3/11/2009
purchase date: unknown
amount:$17.50 original amount
I was contacted via mail by Checks & Judgments, LLC on 1/118/2013. The letter stated that I had a returned check to my cleaners (they have been my cleaners since 2001 and still are) on 3/11/2009. I explained since I frequent the cleaners the debt had been settled but due to the time frame between then and now I didn't have proof other than to go directly to the cleaners and request a letter of receipt. I asked the person (Catherine) if that would be an acceptable solution, she agreed.
I contacted the cleaners and the owner was able to substantiate my position, he wrote a letter and called the collection agency. During the phone call the same person at the collection agency ([redacted]) yelled at the owner and would not accept his explanation and hung up on him.
The owner called me back to let me know the status.
The collection agency continues to call and harass me as well is threatening unless I pay a total of $179.50 she will put this debt on my credit report. She will not accept the letter now she says I have to pay the money.
This is a scam because a few days later same person from the collection agency called me again and says now she will accept payments and a lower amount. But still will not accept the letter from the business owner saying I don't owe the debt, he did not employ them to retrieve the debt and insists they stop contacting me.
I've contacted the Revdex.com and will contact the attorney generals office and the credit reporting agencies.
