I sent out a DV. Simple DV. No mention of the word DISPUTE. I used VALIDATE.
The CA has added the "Consumer Disputes" comments to my TLs. I haven't heard back from the CA (yet) but I'd like to fire off another DV -- stressing that I did not DISPUTE but wanted VALIDATION.
Thoughts? Or should I give it 30 days?

Nope, send it now.

That should cover it. Seems this is the latest tactic by the CAs. They turn a DV into a dispute, then they validate the dispute and by the time it's done, the timeliness of the DV has passed and they haven't had to address it and keep trying to collect.

I should note that this is a very old account. I never recieved a dunning notice. Does that matter?
Also, I added a reference to the fact that adding comments does not consitue a proper validation. Thoughts?

If you never received a dunning notice then the DV would be timely. I wouldn't worry about the comment section, they know what a proper DV is.
