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

To the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau : I - recently filed a CFPB complaint against a national collection agency that specialized in the collection of unpaid rent. This agency send a compromised offer, but they did not expose the truth of my arrangement with The - apartment complex. I hereby attach a copy of an email between myself and -, Assistant Property Manager at the apartment complex in question. My move out from this complex was requested professionally as I was facing a family crisis back in - State, and the ownership was understanding and agreed that I would only be responsible for the days whereas my apartment was nor re-rented, but that the management would advertise the apartment for rent immediately. The email response I have posted on this complaint shows that - apologized that he was sorry the apartment was not advertised, and that he would not charge me for this mistake. This response concludes any argument that I owe anything towards the Fair Collections & Outsourcing , Inc . In addition, the settlement offer by FCO is hereby void, mainly because there is no lease termination fee in the entire lease, as posted for your review. This entire collection is a violation against my rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the leasing by-laws of the state of -, and since FCO posted the collection on every credit bureau, a serious violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. FCO has acted devious by adding charges to an invoice that are not included in my lease, and the fact remains that my move was amicable and the management of - agreed that I was not going to be charged for the apartment post move. FCO must file a removal of the case and send removal letters to all pertinent credit reporting agencies on behalf of - and - respectively.
