Credit Scam - Don't buy from Leons Furniture!
In 1996 I purchased a new Washer and Dryer from Leons under the don't pay for a year event. I paid for the washer and dryer in full before the year was due.
Between [protected] someone had called me from an agency stating that they had taken over all of Leon's accounts, and they wanted me to provide proof of payment for the washer and dryer! I stated that my records (now over 6-7 years) were destroyed and I could not provide them with record of payment. The person was very rude in dealing with me. A short while later (2004) a collection was placed under my credit bureau.
At that time (2004) sent Equifax a detailed letter explaining my dilemma and they promptly removed this collection from my credit report stating there was a statute of limitations to collect and that it was illegal.
Well guess what? In Sept 2007, I get a collection agency called Contact Resource Services place a collection on my account for the same washer and dryer that I purchased over 11 years ago. Now why would I pay for the washer and dryer twice? Hmm..
I now need help to clear this criminal intent to scam me in paying twice. Your privacy rights are stepped all over and I will complain to every news media and website in the world until Leon's comes clean and gets this resolved for me.
In the meantime, since it is a new collection, Equifax is now stating that Contact Resource Services will not remove my collection from my credit bureau until 2009. I hope to get the issue resolved, but it will be a major headache. In the meantime, I have contacted CTV news and they are investigating.
Do not purchase anything from Leons!!! Keep all your paid receipts on file for life so you don't have to go through the hassle I did!
