Good morning. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.

If you don't owe this person money, you can either: i) simply ignore the letter, whether or not it's from a lawyer, or ii) respond by informing them you owe the person nothing and if they pursue this you will be filing a counter suit for malicious prosecution of a frivolous lawsuit seeking actual and punitive damages. Even if they threaten a law suit, you really need not be concerned, because the burden is not on you to prove you don't owe money; rather, the burden is on them to produce proof that you do owe the money. Since you don't owe this money, they will be unable to satisfy this burden.
