Hello. Last week when I viewed my credit report online it said I owed you two different bills. I called and found out that it was from a hospital bill over a year ago. I was not contacted in any way (phone, mail, or any other way). When I called your company I spoke to a woman and she gave me incorrect information but I did pay my bill over the phone that day. A week later I called to ask why it showed on my credit report that I had neglected to pay a years worth of payments when the woman I talked to told me that would not appear on my report and now my credit report has been severely damaged. Even thought I was polite and trying to be understanding, the woman ( who would not give me her name) kept interrupting me and told me I was just "going around with her" because I was asking her questions trying to figure out who I needed to contact to resolve this issue. She was very nasty and rude and was trying to cover up her mistakes. When I asked to speak to the manager she said" I will direct your call to the manager but we can't do anything" very nastily and then hung up. I have not received a call back from a manager and am very frustrated with this situation. I just want this problem fixed so I can go on with my life and not appear to ignore my bills. I paid my bill AS SOON AS I found out about it through the credit card tracker. My credit score should not be damaged because Berks credit and Collections failed to contact me over a year long bill. Please contact me with some sort of resolution since calling the office gets me ignored and my questions unanswered.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
