Hi! My name is Richard & I will be helping you today! It will take me a few minutes to type a response to your question. Thanks for your patience!
No...that is not true. They're simply trying to intimidate you. If your case was pending, you would have been served. Since you've already communicated to them, I would now simply: i) send the letter to cease and desist; and ii) I would immediately contact the FTC and report the collection agency's violation of the Federal Act. Each violation is $1,000 fine. :)
