*Consumer Comment: Contel of the South

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Contel of the South is billing me for 173.36 for a phone bill i had back in 2001. They are saying it was for Feb. 11th, 2001 and i didn't live in this area code where the bill is for untill March or April of 2001.

I have never received any bill in the past from this company. Last i checked i it wasn't on my credit report. It could be now since this is all coming about but i have a clean and clear credit so i will be very upset if it is on there now. they also had it in my maiden name and sent to my mothers address in which i haven't lived there for several years.

I can't find out any info on the Contel of the South Company, i would like an address at where they get this phone bill from. Someone please help me figure this out so it doesn't mess up my credit.

Hi I just got a bill for a collector for them

AUTHOR: P- Adams - (U.S.A.)

Hi Amanda,

I am Patrice from greenville, SC and I just got a bill from a collector for them. Whats so weird about this, is that I have never had a home phone bill in my name before. I have tried contacting this agency and it is busy every time. I would like more information on what steps your taking now to get this taken care of.

Thanks for your time,

Contel of the South

AUTHOR: Mark - (U.S.A.)

Contel of the South was bought up a while ago.
GTE holding company acquired Contel of the South, Inc. which included Contel's study area jurisdictions Alabama (COAL) and Georgia (COGA). Then, on 10/31/93, GTE and ALLTEL traded study area jurisdictions. GTE gave ALLTEL study area COGA and GTE received study areas Indiana (GLIN) and Michigan (GLMI).

so it may be gte that became verizon or alltell. i dont know where your at.
