Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Welcome and thank you for your questions
I am an attorney with more than 25 years of experience and look forward to providing you true and correct information in this regard
Please remember, I can only answer what you ask and so if you have follow up questions, please post them here for full and accurate information before rating. If there are no other questions in this regard then I thank you in advance for your positive ratingYou have a right to have verification of any debt, that any "collector" is trying to get. This could be a scam. So I suggest that you can call them and tell them you need a physical address so you may send your written request for Verification of the Debt as is your right under the law. I suggest you do not have any other conversations with them. If they are legit they will give you that information so you can them write your request and mail it certified with a return receipt requested
If they stall you or try to engage in any way to get other information from you, tell them you do not believe they are legit and that they must immediately stop contacting you. Tell them if they continue to call, you will report them to the Attorney General for further investigation.
