Attempts to collect debt not owed debt was result of identity theft
Convergent Resources, Inc. Debt collection department,
In -/-/- I received a letter of collection from - - -. They claimed that I owed a little over $110.00 to - that was outstanding. This debt was attempted to being collected by Convergent. At this time, I checked my - account and did not see any recent transactions matching the amount owed. Then, I wrote a letter to Convergent disputing the debt.
Convergent replied back on -/-/-with a packet that stated the debt was valid. There were many details that were suspicious.
First, in the packet from Convergent, there was given a " - - Account Number '' which I did not recognize. In fact, - says on their website that they do not give account numbers, rather accounts are identified by associated email addresses.
account much earlier than that and I have statements recording purchases in -/-/-. Third, some of the listed information was unclear - monetary numbers that did not add up to or relate to the $110.00 or actual amounts in my - statements. Due to the fact that I can not access the account and do not have statements that reflect the amount owed, I can come to only two conclusions. One, someone opened an account in my name with a bad credit card or bank account number. Or Two, - - -. is a fraudulent organization.
