Consumer Complaint: I spoke to your company before and informed you that I am in dispute with the medical service provider and that you needed to validate this debt but it appears you have refused so I am sending this letter to you. Be advised, this is not a refusal to pay, but a notice sent pursuant to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, 15 USC 1692g Sec. 809 ( b ) that your claim is disputed and validation is requested. This is NOT a request for ” verification ” or proof of my mailing address, but a request for VALIDATION made pursuant to the above named Title and Section. I respectfully request that your office provide me with competent evidence that I have any legal obligation to pay you : What the money you say I owe is for ; provide a detailed, plain and simple list ( not coded ) of any and all services or goods you claim I received a line by line itemization of charges ; Explain and show me how you calculated what you say I owe ; Provide me with copies of any papers that show I agreed to pay what you say I owe ; Provide a verification or copy of any judgment if applicable ; Identify the original creditor ; Show me that you are licensed to collect in my state ; and Provide me with your license numbers and Registered Agent. If your offices have reported invalidated information to any of the three major Credit Bureau ‘s ( XXXX, XXXX or XXXX ), said action might constitute fraud under both Federal and State Laws. If you have I demand you send me a deletion letter today until such time as this is resolved. I have my phone records to prove I have spoken to you and made this same demand verbally. This would be construed as knowingly violating the law. Due to this fact, if any negative mark is found on any of my credit reports by your company or the company that you represent I will not hesitate in bringing legal action against you for the following : Violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act Violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act Defamation of Character If your offices can provide the proper documentation as requested, I will require at least 30 days to investigate this information and during such time all collection activity must cease and desist including any reporting to any credit reporting agencies. Also during this validation period, if any action is taken which could be considered detrimental to any of my credit reports, I will consult with my legal counsel. This includes any information to a credit reporting repository that could be inaccurate or invalidated or verifying an account as accurate when in fact there is no provided proof that it is.I would also like to request, in writing, that no telephone contact be made by your offices to my home or to my place of employment. If your offices attempt telephone communication with me, including but not limited to computer generated calls or correspondence sent to any third parties, it will be considered harassment and I will have no choice but to file suit. All future communications with me MUST be done in writing and sent to the address noted in this letter. This is an attempt to correct your records, any information obtained shall be used for that purpose. Best Regards, XXXX XXXX
