I am in awe.
To move forward in correcting and overcoming our various financial issues, we need to know the account information. The original account information has been sold to another agency, and now has new account information. We were not informed of the transaction and don’t know who owns the debt, now.
To find out who owns the debt, we need a credit report, which will show who is owed what.
To order a credit report they need to confirm I am who I say I am.
To confirm who I am, they require me to give the account number — you guessed it — for one of the debts that is being held by an unknown agency.
That’s beautiful, in its way.
I believe there is another way to do this — there are always alternative ways to do things — but for the moment I think it best if I sit quietly with a cup of tea and not think of the wasted hour I’ve spent.
