PFD Responses that ARE NOT responses

Hi all,

So I FINALLY recieved a PFD response. Except it wasn't-it was just another collection notice. Plus, I don't even think it was from the collection agency I originally recieved a notice from. They must have sold the account. So my question is-do I send a PFD response to this agency? Or should I DV them? The debt is mine so I definetely just want to get it paid and deleted.

 

Also this notice actually had a website. warningnotice.com

It seems to be a site that you can just pay on. I am not going to do that because I would still like to PFD. This is for a Comcast collection. The agency is Credit Collection Services. Has anyone had any luck with PFD's with this company?

Thanks

Dont PFD a CA that you are not even sure is authorized to collect.

I would DV the CA who responded to you, apparetly without providing you dunning notice.

Re: PFD Responses that ARE NOT responses

If a "new" collection agency communicates with you regarding the collection of a debt, which they have done, they are required under FDCPA 809(a) to provide you wth their own "dunning notice" within 5 days of their initiial communication with you.  That includes attorneys, under a decison by the Supreme Court.  So they are most likely in violation of the FDCPA.

I would DV them immediately, regardless of whether they have dunned you, thus shutting down any further collection activity on their part until they provide validation.

Make them tell you what is going on.

Re: PFD Responses that ARE NOT responses

A dunning notice is a letter sent to notify you that they are collecting a debt.

 

When you receive one or there is a CA reporting you should always mail a DV  CMRRR.  Besure to know the DOFD and SOL befor doing so.

 

A DV should always be sent before a PFD!

Shoud you still DV even if it is outside the 30 day timeframe?

Re: PFD Responses that ARE NOT responses

If they did not provide you dunning notice (FDCPA 809(a)) within 5 days of any initial commication wiith you, they have no right to assert any right under the FDCPA not to validate.

They have set no 30-day period for you to request vallidation.

DV them.

Question: what's the point of knowing the DOFD and SOL b4 sending DV?

if you are still within SOL, you can be sued.
