Cingular Wireless Unfair and unethical business practices Atlanta
It was still more than what I had calculated but it was better than $662 so I accepted and paid it. That was September of last year and the matter was settled and the debt was paid, or so I thought. I checked my credit report a few days ago, conducting my annual credit inspection. There is an entry from a second collection agency that I had never heard of, reporting a debt to cingular wireless. How can this be? It just so happened that the amount of the alleged debt was the difference between the original bill and the settlement offer. How can they do that, offer a settlement and then take it back after I pay it?
I have a copy of the settlement letter and the payment tracking number plus the name and address of the first collection agency. I feel like I should have just kept my $300 bucks and let the whole thing go. Has this ever happened to anyone else and what did you do? It is not right how these large companies can just push people around; we as individuals, have to live by the credit report. Anything you do wrong is on it and is held against you for a very long time. Companies should have to be accountable for the mistakes they make too.
