The CMI Group Other debt complaint on 02/22/2019

Issue

Around XX/XX/2018, there was were faulty plumbing, wiring, and heating unit issues in the property I was renting/leasing at the time. I was told by the landlord that it would get taken care of immediately. It never get taken care of, as a result, the electric bill for one month alone was over {$1000.00} due to these faulty issues. The landlord was supposed to pay this bill, since it was his fault. However, instead this was charged to me. I was not informed this would affect my credit, but since I could not get any hep from the landlord, I did my best to pay this debt anyway. I never received any notice that this would be transferred to collections. However, when collections did call me earlier this year, I still attempted to settle the debt by getting on a payment plan for the sake of my credit. They told me that this would not be reported negatively on my credit report if I began a payment plan. So I proceeded. I have discovered that that they STILL reported negatively on my credit report, and this is hurting me terribly. All this for a debt I do not even owe. I can not get any help on this matter from the company collecting the debt currently listed on my credit report CREDIT MANAGEMENT LP. I also could not get help from XXXX XXXX XXXX who initially charged me such an outrageous bill from a faulty home that the landlord was supposed to repair. I was never even notified in writing about the outstanding balance or that it would be sent to collections. I spite of all this, I am still on the payment plan and am working to pay off this debt I should not owe as agreed when promised it would not affect my credit report if I took action. With that said, I would like to please get this negative remark removed from my credit report ASAP. Although I wish I did not have to pay this at all, I understand someone needs to pay it and I know my former landlord will not. I truly appreciate any effort on this issue.

Debt collection / Other debt

I checked my credit report and there was a debt

Right to dispute debt notice not received

I checked my credit report and there was a debt collection account that showed up that appeared to be a debt that was well over 7 years old. I disputed it with the credit bureaus and it came back as " verified. '' Since I never received notification from this company, I sent them a debt validation letter and dispute letter to the address listed on my credit report. The letter was returned un-deliverable by USPS, it says the building is vacant. So the address listed on the credit report is 100 % inaccurate. How did the credit bureaus " verify '' this account if it's not possible to get hold of them via mail? This company is reporting debt that is over 7 years old, their contact information is not correct on my credit report, so it's impossible for me to reach them to deal with this matter. This is not legal.

Threatened or suggested your credit would be damaged

The XXXX XXXX XXXX debt of {$470.00} is invalid. It should not be collected on my credit reports from the 3 credit reporting agencies ( XXXX XXXX XXXX ) which destroy my credit. Contrary to its promise, XXXX XXXX XXXX devices ( for which I already paid $ 1000+ for them ) did not work with XXXX. I asked XXXX XXXX XXXX ( XXXX ) to help solve the issue, but XXXX XXXX XXXX did not cooperate. XXXX XXXX XXXX provided wrong instruction for unlocking its devices. After I paid off the balance of my phones on XX/XX/2018, XXXX XXXX XXXX told me that the devices would be unlocked and then work for other carriers. I waited a few days and received an email of unlock instruction ( first email of unlock instruction, attached below ). I followed the instruction but without success. The instruction says max 5 tries are allowed before a phone becomes permanently locked to XXXX XXXX XXXX. I suffered a lot. I called XXXX XXXX XXXX customer care. I waited another few days and received another email of unlock instruction instruction ( second email of unlock instruction, attached below ) .which is completely different from the first unlock instruction. I followed it and seems like it was successful. However, when using the phones with XXXX, I never had mobile data connection. I had unlocked other XXXX XXXX XXXX phones in the past and they work well with other carriers -- but only one unlock instruction was received. Therefore, I believe that problems happened somewhere inside XXXX XXXX XXXX which caused my phones does not work with other carriers even if I paid them off. It is illegal for XXXX XXXX XXXX to sell defunct product. Either XXXX XXXX XXXX refunds the money I paid for the devices, or replaces them with functioning devices. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- first email of unlock instruction -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- - From : XXXX XXXX XXXX Order Status XXXX Sent : Thursday, XX/XX/2018 XXXX XXXX To : XXXX Subject : We approved your unlock request Use these instructions to unlock your device.
