Asset Acceptance / Terrible experience
Last week I opened a piece of mail from Asset Acceptance LLC, regarding a debt that they say I owed from 1999. I was shocked to say the least, especially after they said that it was for over $1700. I called Asset Acceptance immediately because the form letter said if you didn't then it was automatically accepting the debt and they would pursue it.
So I called and asked who this company was and what the debt was for. The young lady that answered then asked me my name and, if my SSN was (*****). I answered in the affirmative. She asked me if I lived in Grand Rapids in 1999 and I answered in the affirmative. But I had never even heard of this company that they said I owe. The lady on the other end said she'd send me out a form that I could file a fraudulent claim with then.
Ruth mentioned that she had checked her credit reports and that the claim had never shown up on them. I did the same thing myself and have never seen it on any of my credit reports ever, and I monitor mine regularly. When I read the report from Ruth in Alachua Florida, I was in shock, to say the least! Here's another poor soul that this company, Asset Acceptance, is trying to dupe out of money.
After looking into it myself online and doing some investigation, I have found that they were a long distance carrier, which have now merged with AT&T. But at that time, they were not affiliated. I also have discovered that in the state of Michigan, the time limit for collecting such debates is 6 years, which is now over that limit.
I am now in the process of sending everything I can find on them over to my lawyer to deal with it as well as to let as many people out there know what Asset Acceptance is doing with 'Old Debt', fictions or real. I suggest that everyone else do the same.
In the economic atmosphere that we live in today, when we find companies that claim money is owed...they better provide the proof.
Well, Ruth, and any others out there that have had this situation with Asset Acceptance or any others like them, my suggestion to you to to gather all the information you can on them and turn them over to your lawyers or at least the better business bureaus in your state and let them know what they are doing.
