Sold Out

Are the CAs selling my information? I am in the process of repairing and rebuilding. I got a phone call today from a CA I did not contact. Why are they calling me all of a sudden? And how did they get my work number? Are the CAs exchanging my information now that I have made contact? This particular CA (Dynamic Recovery Solutions) has a debt from 2007. They left a message and I did not return the call.

 

I plan to DV and also send a C&D.

Re: Sold Out

There are several skip trace methods the CAs use to find information about you, and I'm sure they share these somehow.

 

You say you are sending a DV, why would you send a C&D at the same time.  That just keeps them from contacting you, the debt will remain and stay on your CR.

Re: Sold Out

I thought the C & D would get them to stop calling my job, no? The DV is enough?

Re: Sold Out

The DV would be timely so it would bar them from collection activity until they respond to the DV, so they couldn't call your work.  A C&D would prevent them from contacting you at all, if it was in SOL they would probably go straight for a judgement.

Re: Sold Out

I see...thanks again for being so helpful! I will only mail out the DV. It's due to fall off next year, I believe?? I did not contact them since its the one and only CA I was waiting out.

Re: Sold Out

The next time they call, tell them that this is a place of business (if they are calling you at work) and to stop calling this number. I believe legally, they have to stop calling. The FDCPA code, 15 U.S.C ss, 1692b-c tells us that once you tell a creditor that your employer does not allow calls concerning these things coming into the workplace, they must adhere and not call again.

Re: Sold Out

I believe that the request has to be in writing. I would send CMRR.
