I was contacted by Columbia House, or whatever they go by now (they have many aliases) and was informed that I owed $24.00 to their company. I was not aware of being a member of this oh so exclusive group. I was baffled by this phonecall as I had never heard of their company, nor did I subscribe to anything that they offered, which apparently were movies, and music. I informed them that I did not authorize nor did I have any knowledge of this expense, and I am disputing this. Silly me for not noting the name of whom I spoke with, who told me they would note that in their system and it would be taken care of.  

Flash foward to today. I went to review my credit report, and was shocked to see that this $24.00 payment was reported to Experian, under a "FAILED TO PAY". These people had the nerve to report $24.00 which affected my credit by almost 100 points!!!!

You have got to be kidding me!!!!!! I did my research on this fraudulent, and deceitful company, and found out quite a bit. I would understand if this was an account I knowingly neglected to pay them. This was an account that I myself did not take out, and had no idea where anything was being mailed to as I sure as hell was not receiving anything. 

Apparently this account according to the "LOVELY" gentleman I spoke with on the phone was taken out many years ago. Now, it is 2013 no? And I receive a phone call now! When asked this question, I received silence. Of course, because they are fuc**** full of sh**.

I will be formally disputing this to the fullest extent to get this sh** off of my credit. Really , a 100 point drop for $24.00 that I disputed. Starting with fuc**** bull sh** company, whom I have already called and emailed. Next stop is their collections agency who they secured, who also practices illegal acts , and methods. See below:

This post will be put on any and every website to warn people that apparently an individual who has had their information used without the sole persons knowledge, neither of which you knew nothing of, will have the above happen to them, due to these rats that do nothing but look for ways to snipe people. Unfortunately, I now have a matter to handle, and am determined to take those MOTHERFUC**** DOWN!!!!!!!!!!

DON'T FORGET TO GOOGLE COLUMBIA HOUSE, AND ITS BEST FRIEND BUREAU OF COLLECTION R. YOU WILL MORE OR LESS UNDERSTAND WHAT I AM TRYING TO CONVEY. 

STAY AWAY FROM THIS PATHETIC RAT OF A COMPANY THAT NEEDS TO BE PUT BACK IN THE SEWER WHERE IT BELONGS.
