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

I recieved an email this morning about an alert on my credit report. The alert was from RECEIVABLES MANAGEMENT GROUP in the amount of $103. I called RECEIVABLES MANAGEMENT GROUP to inquire and talked to a customer service rep named Chad. He wouldn't give me the name of the company that turned this in to the collection agency, but I was able to get enough information to be able to handle that elsewhere. He said he would remove the item from the credit report. I then called the credit bureau and was able to find out the account was opened in Aug 2008, which means that the staute if limitations is about to expire for this supposed account anyway. I should add that I am currently resolving an apparent identity theft in this same area as the address RECEIVABLES MANAGEMENT GROUP gave me (Buffalo, NY area) and because of this, I made so many inquiries, otherwise I would have assumed this account really was mine and paid it. I then called RECEIVABLES MANAGEMENT GROUP again, and again got Chad. I asked him what company submitted this to the collection agency, and almost begrudgingly he told me it was Columbia House. He then proceeded to say that since I keep calling back (mind you, I called two times, and this was the second one) that it sounds like I want to pay this and he would put it back on my credit report. He was extemely rude, and I rather forcefully told him "No, I don't want to pay it. I want to contact the company to possibly file a dispute because someone has twice now opened accounts in my name and both have appeared on my credit report.". After doing a little digging, I see that other people have had the same issue with RECEIVABLES MANAGEMENT GROUP as far as extremely old accounts that possibly aren't even theirs to begin with. Luckily, I was not scammed into paying anything, but it sounds like that's what they try to do to people. Otherwise I would have paid a hundred dollar debt that did not belong to me. While the debt is not mine, I am continuing to contact Columbia House to stop this just in case it is stolen identity. Don't just assume, people! Make those phone calls, find out everything before just handing over money to companies like this!
