Dear Customer.

what was the agency called ?

What did they want exactly ?

Did they show you any kind of paper work?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I didn't really understand the name Liedle or something similar. They said they have a titulated debt in Deutsche Mark translating into about 9000 Euro from dating back to 1997 . I told them I had no recollection of anything like this and asked them to mail me paperwork. They said that since it is titulated - the debt doesn't expire for 30 years and they have lawyers in the US to peruse this. Also said I would have to pay this in full since it is titulated.

Dear customer,

What they say is true yet they do not have the proof that there really is a title.I would recommend you demand proof by sending you a copy of the title. You can show it to me then and I can tell you whether it's real or not
