Today I received a collection notice from a collection agency for an old cingular account. I fought this account with a police report and in may 07 received a letter from cingular stating it was fraud. In the past it was reported to all 3 credit agencies and eventually was removed(after a lot of stress and my leg work). So I notified cingular fraud dept today that I STILL was receiving collection letters! They stated they bought the account back and wasn't sure why the collection agency was trying to collect but to send them the letter stating it was fraud to the collection agency. My question is what can I do to both companies for all the stress and time they have costed me? This could have affected my rates on my home and who knows what else. I want to be compensated for all the stress they have caused. Please help and TIA. I have kept a file of all documents sent and received as well.
