Cavalry collections

Hello,
Got a question if anyone can help... Recieved a letter in the mail today from cavalry stating that " this letter acknowledges receipt of you dispute and request for account validation. Please be advised that we have already ceased collection efforts for the time being in response to your communication. We will contact you again and either provide validation, or update on the status within 60 days from the date of this letter. No further collections will be made unless and until validation is provided . Crazy thing is, I didn't send them a verification letter,just a pfd letter. Anyone know anything about this...it sounds crazy and not sure if I should be worried or excited....

Re: Cavalry collections

They play games and call anything you send a dispute. I actually sent them a DV and received the same exact letter. Today, they sent a second letter stating they are still attempting to validate the debt. I wouldn't get excited just yet...wait and see what they come back. BTW -- I'm sure they have added dispute comments to the TL if they are reporting on CRs. If you can still be sued, have the $$ to the side in case they try to come after you.

If you used the PFD template from this site it specifically states you are disputing the debt. 

 

That letter should never be used for various reasons.

Re: Cavalry collections

Possibly.  However, if you know the debt is yours and just want to pay it, you could rescind the "dispute" and see if they are open to a PFD.

Re: Cavalry collections

@fixmycred14, remember how excited I was that they had deleted their account from my CR?!?? Well, I just received a letter in response to my DV.....so I guess they will be jumping back on my report any day now. :smileysad: I was sooooo excited that they couldn't validate and were deleted.   Back to the drawing board.

Re: Cavalry collections

@newmomnewme -- Oh #$%##! Yes yes! I recall. Well, hopefully they won't jump back on or resell it. You have SW, right? Keep a look out. Who was the OC? So, they actually validated?

Re: Cavalry collections

@fixmycred14...the OC was Citifinancial.....but, Calvary sent me the validation letter....saying they were wiling to work with me, blah, blah, blah. This stinks. I was so pumped up that it was deleted! I have SW, I guess I won't be surprised if they re-appear.  The letter is dated 11/13, I can't remember when I noticed it was deleted. Maybe a week ago. 

 

Since it is outside the SOL, could they possible stop reporting???  Maybe???
