sent to collections when i was a child
when I was in middle school my mother took me in to get braces on my teeth. I have twin sister who also got braces. every time my mom made a payment they would put that full amount of money my sisters account instead of splitting it onto both of our accounts. her account would be over paid $400 and mine would be sent to collections for it not being paid at all. after this happened several payments my mom never took us back we ended up paying another dentist to take our braces off and which he refused to pull the bottoms off so we did with a butter knife... A terrible experience.
