WOW- They did the EXACT same thing to me in 2017!!! Unbelievable that they are doing this to so many other people!! They should be shut down! 

This is what happened to me and my account / credit report / situation with them:  In 2017, I Spoke to AT&T on the phone, (Before an account was in collections because My account/ bill at the time was only about 1 month not paid!)

The woman from AT&T that i spoke with this day in 2017 advised me of my account, and "late balance", asked if I still had the cable / tv / internet equipment.

I told her yes, I am aware, and planning on paying the bill, and yes still have the equipment. She asked if i was able to return that equipment back to the local store branch. I told her Yes, I was already planning on returning it to the store location that weekend. She said that was great, and advised me that when i return it, that it would take $100 off of my total bill (My total bill was $220). She went on to tell me, when I go return it to make sure i let them know which account / bill it pertains to, and to deduct the $100 dollars off the bill, for returning it. (That weekend i did all of that. ) 

While still on the phone with her, she then asked me if i would like to go ahead and set up a payment arrangement for what the remaining balance on the account will be once the $100 was deducted. I said yes, i would like to go ahead and do that. So, she set up the arrangement, which i was told would be for $120 dollars total. She then asked if i would like to go ahead and make a payment on this arrangement, and i said sure, yes, i can do that. She asked for my debit card number and info, i provided all that info to her, she ran a payment from my debit card for a payment right then of $50.00. After that she set up the following payment, which was set to be auto drafted the following week from the same debit card, for a payment of $70.00 which would have then paid off my balance! The following week, that $70.00 WAS auto drafted from my card/ bank account!  

Therefore, being that I returned what I was told to return, agree to set up a payment arrangement on the phone with that lady that day, MADE a payment on the phone with her that same day, AND had the remaining amount auto drafted the following week, I ASSUMED that everything was GOOD TO GO!! 

I never heard from them again, no mail, no phone calls, NOTHING... and i assumed that i wouldn't since i returned everything, and made the payments to pay off the bill! 

Then fast forward to 2019. I randomly checked my credit report and saw i had a "New" collections account, listed as 11 ATT U VERSE, for an amount of $353!!!! (Which is WAY more than the $220 original amount that i was told my bill was for in 2017!!) 

Ever since 2019 when seeing it on my credit reports from ALL 3 credit bureaus, I have disputed the account and all information several l times and they just keep coming back with " info reported as accurate" when its not! After disputing it SEVERAL times, AT & T ended up transferring the "collections account" to ANOTHER debt collection agency (I C SYSTEM) !!! 

I have now spoke with I C SYSTEM on the phone, and have been told by them that "They have NO past information, payments made, records, documents or knowledge of this collections account before it was transferred to them by ATT U VERSE!!!  Legally they have to give them all info regarding an account that is "given" to them by another creditor.  

So now due to all this, i will be getting a lawyer involved, and thinking about suing them if they do not remove ALL of this from my credit reports from all 3 bureaus!

It is infuriating that they do this, and that they do it to a lot of people, and just so THEY can make MORE money ( and make it ILLEGALLY) and "get away with it" !!!!!! 

Maybe the legal action i, (and others may) take for their theft and fraud will shut them down and prosecute them accordingly- as they should be, and then they wont have a way to spend all that free, illegally made money that they have been for gosh knows how long!

I also have a $793 balance with them that I had no idea I had since I have never been a customer of theirs.  I noticed it on my credit report and it has been sent to collections.  I disputed it but I have heard nothing.  I don't know what I am supposed to do about this but it's frustrating me as it looks bad on my report.

I never signed up for U-Verse either. I wasn't even a current ATT customer when they sent me to collections. Hits my credit every week for an unpaid bill for a service I never signed up for or knew it even existed. No one can give me any information on it. I cant get it removed. Went from a 783 to a 665 credit score. Anyone look into a filing LAW SUIT or talk to a lawyer for this? 

I guess community guidelines doesn't want legal action taken so they remove the word L@wsuit from posts.

@Krystyleagosto That would either indicate the debt collector has the wrong person (which does happen) or you were a victim of identity theft.
