I was in no way able to function because of this. on XX/XX/XXXX I sent a letter to Wal-mart asking them to send me Pursuant to the the Fair debt collection Practices Act. ” validation ” that is competent evidence bearing my signature on the contract. I asked that they get back to me within 30 days and for them to contact the credit reporting agencies that I was disputing this. I was not contacted within the 30 days and it was not reported on my credit report as being disputed. I sent a second letter on XX/XX/XXXX and again XX/XX/XXXX .
