Does the original creditor have to respond to a debt validation or pay for delete letter in Texas?

Re: Original creditor response

That's the thing I wrote a debt validation letter an got no response twice. I sent them certified so I know they received them. The original creditor is first premier. I was jus curious if the HAVE to respond an if they don't can I then send the info to the CRA for deletion?

i think only one that have to validate debt are collection agencies, but if you owe them.. just pay it and keep on.. FIRST PREMIER BANK its a pain to deal... i have a charge off with them.. trust me they will not do a pay for delete... unless youre really lucky..

GOOD LUCK

Re: Original creditor response

Is there a way I can find out if legally they have to at least respond to the debt validation letter? In Texas

Both the federal DV process and the TX state versioh apply only to debt collectors, not OCs.

OCs establish the validity of a debt via their prior billings, which are their statement that the debt is considered valid.

 

 Texas Finance Code, Title 3

"Sec. 392.202.  CORRECTION OF THIRD-PARTY DEBT COLLECTOR'S OR CREDIT BUREAU'S FILES.  (a)  An individual who disputes the accuracy of an item that is in a third-party debt collector's or credit bureau's file on the individual and that relates to a debt being collected by the third-party debt collector may notify in writing the third-party debt collector of the inaccuracy."

Debt validation is only for 3rd party collection agencies no matter where you live. 

 

You can do a direct dispute with the OC, which does fall under the FCRA.  And they do have to respond or they are in violation.

Re: Original creditor response

Ok. Thank u guiness56. One more question. My reason for contacting them ultimately is to get this debt settled an off my report, so will a direct dispute letter be the right letter?

Probably not.  There has to be some sort of inaccuracy with their reporting.
