Oh Snap, Ilecs!

That letter is amazing. :smileyhappy: I will definitely use it (edited of course) for FBCS.

You are giving me credit where credit is not due. It has been around on these forums for quite a while and HappyDays frequently refers to it. Again, not endorsing it, but if it works, and the CA goes away, then it is worth it.

Re: Is this proof of DV?

OK so I sent the letter to the CA and just received the GC back. In the letter it states they (CA) have 5 days to remove the TL. So, my question is what is my next course of action if the CA does not remove the TL? Should I send copies of all my DV letters, GC, etc. to the CRAs asking them to delete? Thanks

No responses? Seriously?

There's plenty of debate within these forums, but IMO, the CA has an unlimited time to validate. There is no federal law, including the FDCPA, that places time limits on responding to a DV. However, some states may require a limit (TX).
 
Now, we know that they didn't validate properly. They didn't tell you the OC name and address. Your state may even require more info. I would blitz the FTC, BBB, your state agencies, their state agencies, etc so as to put pressure to delete. I probably would also send copies to the CRAs and dispute via mail.

The CA that I sent this letter to did not respond at all.  Sure I received the green card back but oh well.  My letters are ready to go the credit bureaus tomorrow, with copies of everything, signed green card, receipt and a copy of the letter.  IMHO it never hurts to try.  And try and try.
