What is the name of your state?What is the name of your state? New Jersey
Although I have recently moved to California, Comcast Cable in New Jersey reported me to a collection agency AFTER my account was paid in full. The collection agency (CMI) sent me a letter at the same time they reported me to the three credit bureaus. I called CMI and the rep called me a "Deadbeat, who doesn't pay her bills" and also, "if I paid my bills I wouldn't be in collections." He also said he was going to run my credit report to show that I "Stiff" all my creditors. The account was paid in full on 2-24-04. The collection agency reported a negative mark to the credit bureaus in May. I contacted Comcast who said they would contact CMI collection agency directly. As a result of this, I was turned down for an apartment and was humilated when I applied for it. I lost a great apartment at at FANTASTIC price because of this. What should I do?
