ER Solutions - False Balance

Apr 25, 2013
review #403444

I moved and left a small overdue amount when I closed my account with Time Warner Cable.In a letter I received today, Convergent claims that I owe three times the original amount and they were willing to settle for half of that.

Please! So I called TWC to pay the original balance. Convergent lied about the amount I owed. Imagine if I'd gone ahead and paid it.

Always go to the original provider before you give these vampires anything. The scam was obvious in my case, but maybe it isn't always apparent.

Someone at Convergent might have made a decent commission if I'd fallen for this.Tough luck.

Also make sure you keep all your payment evidence for life. Write a CMRRR letter to these miscreants and state the balance was paid off on xxx date directly to TWC and so their claim is refused and enclose the original letter-just keep a copy. This may be re-sold in the future as a debt you never paid and some collector will start to hound you and mess your credit report.

-If your state's SOL is expired the debt is noncollectable, period! That's why you
-Never ever accept/agree/acknowledge you owe/own a debt. Per Federal law first demand a VOD. Use CMRRR (you can call but not recommended. Be sure to record the call)
-VOD must be the original document with your signature on it, not a letterhead stating some amounts owed.
-NEVER
