Hello all, last week I received a call from a collection agency about a debt. he harrassed me on the phone badly. When I told him I would not send him any money or agree to pay any money until I received a letter in the mail about the debt and how I can validate it he told me just by talking to him it has been validated. If I don't moake payment now a judgement will be sought. I hung up on him. Yesterday he called back and told me the same things he told me before. Well five minutes into his ranting he let slip what the collection was for and I just so happen to have proof that I paid it two months ago to a law firm who threatened the same thing.
To make a long story short. They will be sending me a letter about the debt after they check with their law firm about payment. Is their anyway I can sue them for their harassing phone calls??? I'm fed up with these collection agencies and everyone I have had contact with, or no contact with(in the case of Jefferson Capital), has ended up in a complaint to the BBB, AG and FTC.
