CONCERNING THE ALLEGED ACCOUNT (Contentric receivable / XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX )
I am writing this letter in response to the phone call I received from a collector representing your agency last week. Your collector informed me that I owed YOU an alleged debt (see enclosed).
When I questioned the collector regarding your rights to pursue this, I was curtly informed that YOUR FIRM’S policy DID NOT permit any validation of the information regarding this alleged debt and it was your firms policy to NOT provide detailed account records to ANY debtor. When I demanded to speak with a supervisor, your collector informed me that a supervisor was unavailable and I could pay the debt or face being sued by your firm. When I informed YOUR collector that I was starting to record the conversation your collector hung up.
After being threatened with DIRE legal actions by your employee, I contacted the United States CONSUMER FINANCIAL PROTECTION BUREAU; I spoke with a representative who forwarded me to a supervisor who clearly pointed OUT that YOUR Firm IS REQUIRED BY THE FDCPA and the Credit Reporting Bureau Settlement agreement to PROVIDE all of the FOLLOWING information to any debtor that your firm is pursuing.
