Were any of the CAs trying to collect on accounts included in the bankruptcy? Were the accounts old and beyond the SOL? If so, then yeah a C&D would work. However, as I said, if one isn't out from under the SOL, then a C&D all but assures they'll sue, if they can.
Did you C&D Best Buy? If so, then they aren't going to contact you. Cuts off communication, and that can be your friend. If you can catch 'em in violations of FCRA, or FDCPA in the case of collectors, then you gain leverage to threat a lawsuit to get a deletion.
