I had cancer back in 1999 and I had no idea that my insurance had not paid the hospital in full, not until I got a copy of my credit report. It was only $282 so I paid them immediately. Before giving them my credit card iformation over the phone to pay the bill I ask if they would please send me a letter that states the account was paid in full and they also agreed to remove the negative statements they had sent in. I never got the letter and of course they didn't remove the report either. But....I recieved a phone call from them it was the first time they had ever phoned me. They told me that I had not signed an authorzation paper to let them charge my debt card but they have already charged the card. They want me to sign the paper and send it back to them but I don't think I will. I just don't know what to do. I know the SOL is up on this bill. Should I sign the paper or should I turn them in for charging my account without my authorzation? or do a charge back on them? They have really pushed me to the limit. Any help I would be thankful to get.
