Question on a no response DV

If a CA doesn't respond to a DV, do they have to stop collection efforts... Does this mean they must delete off the report until they do validate since that is technically a collection effort?

Re: Question on a no response DV

No, failure to respond to a DV even timely does not require deletion from information already on your CR.

So, if they aren't actively collecting now.. whats the real point of the DV?

If they fail, can I send my docs of letters/requests sent to the CRA to see if they would delete?

Re: Question on a no response DV

What you are referring to, some call the 1-2 punch.  These only get lucky if the CA doesn't validate the debt to the CRA.  It in no way compels them to delete.  First off, unless the DV is timely, or you live in the state of Texas,  they don't have to respond to anything.  If the DV is timely, then they are barred from further collection attempts until they validate.  That does not affect what is already on your CR.  If say a year down the road, they decide to validate, then they do that and resume collection.

So basically, I can DV the CA but if they dont respond to me but they do validate with the CRA I have no leverage to use that against them with the CRA?

Am I understanding this correctly?

Debt validation is a FDCPA thing... debt reporting is a FCRA thing.

 

They are different processes, different rules, different everything.
