Verified
Have they sent you anything in writing? If so, you can write to them and ask them to validate the debt. That is your right under the FDCPA. They will then need to send you proof that you still owe the debt. With respect to the CRA's, you can dispute the debt as not yours. All of this should be done via certified mail return receipt requested so that you have a paper trail.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
