They want me to pay to settle a debt. However, it is not my debt, and I have no intention of paying it.
They have made themselves unavailable to any person who refuses to define themselves as debtors.
The bill is not mine.

I also received a bogus collections letter from Convergent with a return address: ATERSO01, PO BOX 1022, WIXOM, MI. I tried to call the 855-343-7885 several times getting a recording followed by a hang-up. Obviously I'm not paying them anything. Are they guilty of an FEC violation or is that only when they phone me?

Just rec'd a notice in the mail, in my husbands name for a utility of which has never been in his name...that particular utility has always been in my name in the state of NJ. Morons, I called them to dispute it 866-291-6364 and they wanted me to provide them with the last 4 digits of his social...NO WAY. Told them I wanted the information they got from this utility and the original service address, they are supposedly mailing it...yet another Scam to collect a debt that isn't ours, went through this last year with another collection agency: Portfolio Recovery...jackasses.

I was just contacted and asked to give my phone # which was called. I gave both my numbers and nothing showed up, the they wanted my SS#. That I'm not giving up. They're saying I have a debt with chase which I do not, it's not mine. I have a open chase account right now! I call back and they tell me neither of the numbers came up in their system but it's the numbers they have called me on.

I just received a letter stating that I owed 1, 146.31 and they're asking me to settle for 573.16. I have no debt and this is the first of this company I have heard of and not to mention no one has my home address and the address they have on the envelope has an apartment no on it and I don't live in an apartment . That sent up red flags immediately . I will not be giving them any money or calling them Because I'm likely to give them a few choice words not my number. Not to mention it doesn't specify who the debt is supposedly for.

I have received about six or seven different bills from Convergent. I wrote them a letter disputing each one. A few were from companies I've never done business with in my life.Its as if they are going to keep sending me bills until I pay one. I don't know how to get them to stop.

I received a letter from them today stating that they had an old debt from Pallisades Collections. My original debt on this letter is from AT&T wireless. I haven't used AT&T for over 5 years. I tried calling their number but there is no one, I guess since today is Saturday, to talk to on their end. I turn over the letter and the very last sentence is as follows: The law limits how long you can be sued on a debt. Because of the age of your debt, we will not sue you for it, and we will not report it to any credit reporting agency.
So in other words they were hoping I were ignorant enough to just send them money or give them my credit card information to pay this old debt.
If anyone gets a letter from Convergent be sure to do some checking before you pay them. Funny how they make their letters look like a check payable to you.

I sold my condo on January 9, 2015 and closed my account with my electric company. I got a call today at work...Convergent had that phone number AND my cell number, saying that I owed CL&P over $225.00. I told them my attorney had taken care of all of my bills, paid what I owed and it was impossible for me to have an outstanding debt. They told me I was responsible unless I could give them all the information from my attorney. I told the guy he should get a different job. I wonder how many people send them money. How do you sleep at night, Convergent???

Watch these guys! They called and sent a letter trying to collect fake debt. My husband and I are currently refinancing and I have seen our credit reports multiple times over the years. He does not show any outstanding or unpaid debt. If this was legitimate it would be on our credit reports and we wouldn't have scores over 800!
