Got a dunning notice in the mail

Got a dunning letter in the mail dated 1/7 from ACI (American Coradius International) today. Gonna send a DV out tomorrow, my question is should I include the account number on the letter in my DV or just the simple one liner since they should be able to idenitfy it with my name?

Sweet thanks! Now opinions please I found this on an old post here for DV's don't know if I should send something like it or just the one liner, Nothing is on my reports from them yet. Can they not add anything when I send this until they validate?

They can put it on your report up until the day they receive the DV.  Once that is received, until they validate, they cannot continue collection activity.
