ARA, Inc. Stated I owe $5,775.06 to Fifth Third Bank Villa Park Illinois
Ref: ARA, Inc. Collection Agency
In July, 2013, I received a letter from ARA, Inc. stating I owed Fifth Third Bank $5,775.06 but is so old they could not collect or sue via a lawsuit. ARA states that if I pay them $179.00 within 60 days, the debt would be completed resolved and I would not continue receiving threatening letters from collection agencies.
I contacted Fifth Third Bank as I've never had an account with them. They verified with my name and SSN this was true and it was true. I contacted ARA with this and they said it shows up in my credit reports and I betterpay or else they will send out an agent to make the collection. I ignored their thereat, and during this period, I moved. Today, Dec 6th, 2013, I received another letter with my current address but this time, they want $279. [continued below]....
I realize this is a scam as verified by the bank. I would like to know who I could contact to report these crooks. Please call me or send email. Thankyou. I feel these sort of Rip-Off gangsters should be harshly dealt with and without delay. Reports on this Company (ARA, Inc.) have been going on too long.
