Re: CA Is Claiming I Owe Them A Debt. Please Help!

Would calling the CA be futile?

IMO, no point in calling the CA and I would not advise calling the CA.
 
I would send them a DV letter and speak with the apartment complex.

I called my dad and he said the original lease that I signed was fulfilled and not broken.

Can I send a DV to a PO Box? Thats the only address I have for them. No address or name for the CA is showing on my CR from TC.

Ok, I used a template provided by Lady_Scarle for my DV letter. I am going to send it certified mail it in about 3 hours. This thing is driving me crazy. I can't sleep because of it. Thanks everyone I'll keep you updated.

How would I go about filing a lawsuit against the CA. If I understand the Laws correctly, I am entitled to $2,500 because the CA will not be able to validate this debt.

Re: CA Is Claiming I Owe Them A Debt. Please Help!

I got the idea from one of the DV letters on the forum. It says:

"If you can NOT validate your claim, you can NOT, by law, collect on it, or SELL it to another collection agency. Also, reporting a debt to the credit reporting agencies that can not be validated is a violation of the FCRA (Fair Credit Reporting Act), and carries a $2500 fine to be paid to me. I have two years to decide if I want to pursue this matter."

Maybe I don't understand or maybe the letter is wrong, but It just doesn't seem fair to me that a CA could put an CO anyones credit report they want to. It just doesn't seem fair to me.
