MBNA - Maryland National Bank Falsely claim I owe them $4,381.88 Charlotte, North Carolina
In April 2008 I received an identical letter from the Law Office of Thomas Landis, Esq. in PA. I sent the same response, asking for information from the original creditor. Never heard from them again.
Yesterday I received a call from the Penta Group, TX, saying the same (although they may have quoted a larger sum, I am supposed to receive a letter from them soon). I asked what I would have to do to get some proof that this IS my debt, and I said I am disputing it. The woman - said her name is Alexis Burton - said that I will keep hearing from collectors until I pay the debt, because even if I ask her company not to contact me again, the same I did with the other two, my debt will be sold to another collector and so on.
To clarify - I do not owe this money. To my knowledge, I never had a credit card with MBNA, but I may not be aware. However, I have always paid my debts and balances and I was NEVER contacted by anyone at MBNA about ANY debt! And there was never any note about it on my credit report - until I heard from the first collector, two years ago.
Could someone tell me waht steps I should take? Should I contact MBNA directly - since they sold the debt, will they pay any attention? If I get bumped from collector to collector, my credit will be permanently damaged - how can I put a stop to this? I would really appreciate your help!
