Please note that I am requesting validation ; that is competent evidence bearing my signature, showing that I have ( or ever had ) some contractual obligation to pay XXXX XXXX XXXX. ” They sent me a computer printout of a bill, but nothing with my signature on it showing a contractual relationship between myself and XXXX XXXX XXXX.
