Thank you for your follow up clarification.
The failure of the collector to provide you the 30 day time to respond to the debt demand would appear based on what you are saying above to violate Section 809 of the FDCPA (see: 15 USC 1692g). You need to respond with a motion to dismiss
the suit for failure to provide you the appropriate time under the Act to submit your objection. Furthermore, they also have to have proof of the debt being your debt, such as signed agreement and an itemized statement proving the amount of the debt and they cannot use this letter as proof of the debt as all it is would be proof of the demand to collect on an alleged debt.
