I am requesting proof that I am indeed the party you are asking to pay this debt, and there is some contractual obligation that is binding on me to pay this debt. ” I requested RPM to send me, in addition to a signed a signed agreement, the following : Please provide the following : Agreement with your client that grants you the authority to collect on this alleged debt.
