Trying to collect on a paid bill!
I was recently contacted by a collection agency(Bay Area Credit Service) about a hospital bill from four years ago. I know the bill was paid and even confirmed with the hospital themselves, the account is good and at $0. I plan on filing a cease and desist, but I noticed that the creditor - Pendrick Capital Partners Il LLC - they are collecting for is a collection agency as well, and apparently the original creditor was also a collection agency too! My question - would I send a cease and desist to the current creditor as well as the collection agency trying to collect? What is going to stop the creditor from selling my info to someone else??
