This information was deleted off of my credit I was mailed a copy and XXXX XXXX who was the original debt collector and now I have another debit collector trying to get payment to pay off the debit. I spoke with Clarkson Law firm advising I am unable to pay the full amount {$1800.00}. They sent a summons before I knew Clarkson and XXXX had the debit. The original lender did not contact me for payment and it was obviously sold to another debit collector. Now that I had it disputed here I am with a summons that I believe should not have been sent. I reached out but they could not help me settle this payment. I advised them due to covid-19 and unemployment I could settle for {$200.00} they declined the offer.

XXXX XXXX/ XXXX has repeatedly changed the amount that they claim that I owe that is currently in collections on my credit report and every month and it has also been increasing by the month while in collections which is illegal. When i called them to discuss this I am being told that they no longer deal with my account and it is now in the hands of a law firm Clarkson and XXXX. Adding monthly to an account in collections that is no longer being handled by the company at hand is not legal.
