Thank you to everyone on this board who has contributed thier stories. Because of it, I was able to get LVNV to remove thier reporting from my reports. For those fighting this company I submitted a BBB complaint with regards to them listed as open, factoring, and increasing my balance each month by 4 dollars. This is my first successful fight, so I am pretty excited right now. Hopefully they wont just sell it off to someone else - even so it reaches CRTP in a few months.
I received my results today:

Got my reply from the BBB today.

In my complaint I simply laid out my position that:
1) I never recieved a Dunning notice
2) I sent 2 DV letters to LVNV and both were returned to me non deliverable
3) The account # they referenced on my credit reports was and never has been an account number for any creditor I have ever had and that they (LVNV) could not and would not provide any more information or detail for me to validate the debt they "claimed" I owed.
You can attach 1 document via the BBB's system, so I PDF'd my DV letters and green cards.
In the text of my complaint I added a line at the bottom that after exhausting all efforts to get LVNV to validate this debt I was utilizing what I consider my "last resort" options of:
1) BBB Complaint
2) Complaint to the State Attorney General
3) Complant to the State Board of Collections Agencies
4) Complaint to the FTC
5) Lawsuit if the above were not succesful.
$200 CA account.
Pretty simple really.
I think they just bank on people paying, and of the hundreds of thousands of debts they buy, they will roll over if you get nasty with them.

Oh Happy Day! OH HAPPY DAYYYYYYYY... Thanks Beanie for making space for all of us in your lifeboat. I think.... there will be a deletion, but, it only shows one account being deleted. There were two listed which I actually think are the same account listed twice different account numbers. Does a tradeline deletion mean all instances of LVNV on my reports?

Aphrodite - Did you list each account number in your complaint? I would have if there were two or more on my reports. I also would mention that the second instance is a duplicate of the first.
