Complaint #1655443 submitted on 11/14/2015 relating to Continental Finance Company, LLC. Complaint relates to Credit card - Identity theft / Fraud / Embezzlement .
Complaint was submitted via Web and sent to the company on Saturday 14th November 2015.
My card with Continental Finance was compromised about a year and a half ago, and the issue had been cleared up. About six months later my card was charged again by the same company from the first time. I was told when I called that the fraud department would be sending me an affidavit, and I told the company I also needed a copy of my bill ( I could not log on the website to see which charges were mine and which were fraud ). I called them back weeks later to report that nothing ever showed up, and they said they would resend it. By the third phone call, I asked for the dates they sent these documents, and apparently " that information was not in my account. '' I asked them to once again send both the affidavit and the bill. While waiting again for them to send this information, I learned that they had sold off my account to a collection agency when I got a call from a lawyer representing the agency. I immediately called Continental Finance and talked to a supervisor ( XXXX, I believe ) who proceeded to tell me that they " should not have sold the account off because there was fraud on the account. '' He said he was going to email the collection agency to " get it back. '' Another month went by and I heard nothing. I called again and was told that the company had not responded and that they ( Continental Finance ) will send another email. I asked them to carbon copy me on any email that goes out and was told they can not do that. I also asked for the collection agency 's phone number and was told I could not be given that information, either. I waited another few day but still nothing, but I did get a " final call '' from the 3rd party lawyer. I told lawyer 's representative that I was still trying to work out the fraud issue with Continental Finance and was told there is nothing about fraud recorded on my account. I asked her to tell me what the email correspondence from the credit card company to the collection agency said, and I was told " there has been no correspondence '' from the company at all. I am filing this complaint because it is clear Continental Finance has no interest in resolving this situation and has done none of the work they claimed to be doing to help me make informed choices.
