The letter states that I am in dept to the creditor, which is MedClr,Inc.; the Original creditor, EMP of Harrison, for a service performed in Sept. 2003. Now, I have to tell you that I have always paid my bills, on time, and at that time, I believe I did have some medical problems and was admitted to United Hospital Center in Harrison County, WV. But everyone of those bills sent to me were paid on by my insurance and was paid by me the remainder balance.
Any bills I received, I do have receipts, where they were paid in full. I also have Insurance claim forms on everything that was paid at that time. I just recently talked to United Hospital Center billing department, the only place in Harrison County that I have ever been admitted to, and I called to make sure all of my bills had been paid in full and were up to date. They said that they all were paid in full...NOTHING OWED!
I had been paying religiously on a bill since 1988, and had it paid off. They proceeded to tell me that they got a new computer system in 2003 or 2005, I can't remember which, and they erased all old accounts and unpaid bills. She told me they have just been applying the money I sent as a credit, and applying the monies to any occurring bills I had had since then. They ended up sending me a check. So, why would a company associated with United Hospital Center say they could never get a hold of me, turn a bill over to a collection agency 4 years later? I have lived in the same place going on 12 years. Medical people in Harrison County know where I live! I have been doctoring in Clarksburg, WV. since 1987. My children were born there.
I have a great repour with the doctors, staff, and the billing department at UHC. Something smells rotten in Denmark to me! I'm just concerned that someone is trying to steal my identity or pull a scam on me.
They do have the last 4 digits of my social security number. That worries me!If EMP of Harrison County needs me to pay a bad debt, first they need to contact me, and I will be glad to write them a check. If I do in fact owe it to them! I will be calling UHC on Monday, Nov. 26, 2007, and try to find out what is going on. If it is a scam I will inform them that this is going on. Anyone has any advice, please leave a note for me! Thank you!
Buckhannon, West Virginia
