Consumer Complaint: Caine and Weiner is attempting to collect a debt of my XXXX grandmothers for which they can provide no actual proof of payment beyond the word of original collector.

There has been no evidence provided of payments, ie ; cancelled check, deposit slip, bank statement.
I have disputed validity of debt, and again sent a certified letter asking XXXX XXXX XXXX to cease all collections of debt as they can not provide legal documentation of debt.
