I am in the military, and I keep getting these letters sent

I am in the military, and I keep getting these letters sent to my office stating Final Settlement OfferThey state different banks and I owe a balance of $28,163.00They go on about a payment plan and instruct me to call a 800 number.In small print at the bottom states "Assistance Center is not a debt collector or creditor and have no affiliation with credit reporting agencies or the government". There is no letter head or return address just the phone number.I know its a business misleading me to believe that I owe money.I am on top of my finances and have good credit.I do not want to receive theses letters anymore due to the fact it may lead my superiors to believe that this is a collection agency and that I am not paying my bills. Not paying bills on time would revoke my security clearance.

There is a low dwelling collection agency that is trying to convince me to pay an amount from an account that was secured by an LLC that I was "associated with" over 6 years ago so they had my contact info. I informed them that the LLC was disolved and closed. They insist that they have a personal guarantee from me but will not provide a copy to me stating that the docs are in storage and if they are going to get them out they will just file suit. What are my rights and what should my final response be ?

I just took out a car loan with Chrysler Capital. My mom and

I just took out a car loan with Chrysler Capital. My mom and I are the only two on the loan and we are Minnesota residents. My dad just recently received a letter in the mail containing all my personal information about my loan. I contacted Chrysler Capital and asked them why they would send my dad a letter in the mail. The law states in Minnesota that if you are a Minnesota resident that spouses do not receive information that their other spouse is taking out a loan. I contacted Chrysler Capital and they told me it was an error on their part and that my dad should HAVE NOT received that letter because we are Minnesota residents.JA: OK. The Lawyer will need to help you with this.Customer: Okay, thank you.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No, I have not.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Not sure, that's kind of the basics of what's going on.

My mom and I's credit score, points that we used. Money that wasn't put down. Everything, like I said about my personal loan.JA: When we are ready I'll take you to the appropriate web page. OK.

We recently made a loan on some property we had. As soon as the broker heard the loan was ready to close, he called us and pressured us to agree over the phone to pay him $4750.00 in addition to what was on the worksheet as his fee. The loan closed and he has sent an invoice for the amount wanting to know if we received the check. Is this legal?
