I have been receiving notifications from Financial Recovery Services, Minneapolis, MN and from Alegis Group LP starting in February of this year on what they say is an account seriously past due that has to be paid in full for the amount of $2,299.50
Right away, I submitted a dispute to FRS requesting verification of debt and name and address of credit grantor.
Weeks later I received yet another note, this time from Alegis Group LP, Greenville, SC stating, This account was purchased by Sherman Acquisition LP and placed with Alegis Group LP for servicing. We have received your recent inquiry regarding this account and are in the process of investigating your claim. Once a determination is made, we will contact you with the results of our research.
It's been almost three months since I submitted the request for verification of debt and I haven't received any record of the original debtor.
Last Friday, May 6th I received another note saying, Information you provided regarding this account has been forwarded to the Customer Service Department for research (which basically is what they told me previously) However, we have been unable to contact you to discuss this account. If we are unable to establish contact with you within 15 days from the date of this letter, this account will return to the Collection Department and active collection efforts will resume for your account.
In my best interest I've been trying to get in touch with them over the telephone in several occasions this week. I even left a voice mail with a phone number for them to reach me to discuss this issue, but the person that is supposedly handling this account is always on the other line' or out to lunch' so I have to take it as the phone calls are being ignored.
I have no record that I owe anything to Household guitar center, I have never had any dealings with them and don't even know them and as the name that appears in the statement is not even my legal name, I am being lead to believe that this is just a case of mistaken identity and therefore, I'm asking them to cease all inquires requesting payment from me with this collection process and to dismiss the case.
Today, I decided to check their name on the web and I bump into your website. Judging by the information that is coming up about the dealings of these groups I'm taking action in reporting this incident with you and perhaps will need to get some legal assistance to try to solve this matter and to make sure that I don't fall victim of faudulent billing.
