Complaint / review text:
Thamas D. Hockings filed a suit on the behalf of MICHON for a debt he purchased as a debt collector. I decided to make payments to the court to settled debt with MICHON aka DTE ENERGY. However, I decided to make payments to the court, I realized that this was collection agency. At the time Thomas D. Hockings was DBA as CITY FINANCIAL CORP now aka ASSET ACCEPTANCE. I refused to pay collection agencies, they are not the original creditors and the harassments and the abuse I will not tolerate. I have had utitilities restored and have an active account with DTE Energy previously known as MICHON and Detroit Edison for several years. Thomas D. Hockings had filed a garnishment for my 2009 Michigan State Taxes in attempt to obtain funds from me. I would like him to be stopped. I checked the State Michigan Bar Association indicating that he is in good standing. My question is how is that when you choose to be established as Collection Agency your intergrity and moral ethics are degraded. Please help me stop him as well as others that are out here who are running and our legally getting away with scamming consumers because they decided to buy a debt. I will not paid for debt a collection agency decided to buy. Help!
