Other (phone, health club, etc.) False statements or representation Attempted to collect wrong amount California

Contacted by collection agency H.P Sears about a debt I supposedly owed to a former property management agency. - property management. In the amount of $4300.00. That was - -, 2015. It was the first time I ever heard about it. I was never contacted by - property management or anyone else about this supposed debt until that day. So at first I thought it was a scam because he could not tell me why I owed so much. He just wanted me to pay it. Then went on to use threats of legal action from there legal department. I said I would not pay anything until I knew what I was paying for. Then he said it was for rent in the month of - 2015 which is - dollars but he said back rent was over - dollars. I said I moved - -, 2015. How could I owe - dollars? They kept my deposit. He said there was no deposit. I said Ok let 's move on what is the other - dollars for? He said I do n't know but I will call you back in - days with a itemized list I said OK do

- for screens and another - for carpet cleaning and - for labor but he could n't tell me what was fixed. I started to dispute charges and he said it better I do n't fight it. The best thing for me to do is is accept it and make an offer to them for - dollars. I told him I thought this is a scam I never heard of this debt it 's been - months the last time I spoke to anyone from the property management company all they said is that they needed the other set of keys. He said ok. I hung up and thought nothing else of it until I was checking my credit report and saw that - was sent to - credit reporting agencies. Like I said I never received a letter a phone call nothing. I do n't know how long the home was empty after I moved out. We had a brake in while I lived there and put in a alarm system. Someone could have broken in after I left. That does n't mean I 'm responsible for the damages and it 's unfair to try to make me pay for it. There were a few things wrong with the house so a representative form the property management company came by a few times and noted how well we kept up the house. Me and my roommate are both - we were hardly even at home. If there was that much damage why not contact me right away so we could deal with it then not three months later. Because there was no damages that 's why.
