My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: TN
I moved out of my apt July 31st. I went to the leasing office and was told the remaining balance. I paid it immediately.
Fast forward to Sep 25th, I receive a notice from a collection agency saying I owe $200. Thing is, I was never called, emailed, or mailed about this before it was sent off to a collection agency.
I'm more than happy to pay it. I just want to ensure this collection won't be reported to the credit bureaus.
The letter states I have 30 days to dispute or it's considered valid.
I'm going to pay, but how do I make sure it's not reported to the credit bureaus?
