Im a CA resident. I found out less than a year ago, while going through a divorce, that I owe medical bills that were dated back to 2000-2001. The collection agency claimed it's $180,000, but after calling the Medical Center itself, they told me it's only $25,000 in total, and they sent me copied of all the bills to total $25,000 which are owed.
What can I do now to get this adjusted on my credit report and take off the $180,000 claimed amount?
The collection agency provided my divorce lawyer with a signed statement saying it's $180,000, but didn't provide enough supporting documents to prove it.
How can I get this adjusted and taken care of??? Can I sue the collection agency?
Thank you for your help.
