It sounds like it was suppose to an internal e-mail. I would prob follow w/another email or letter.

Mods can you please delete those fragments!What I was going to say is that I also received a strange response from AFNI. I sent them a PFD via e-mail and in the letter I stated that the debt was past SOL and due to fall off in April 09' and that I wasn't owning up to the debt but rather just wanted it off my report and that it was a win/win situation for both parties involved...blah blah. Anyways, yesterday I checked my e-mail and I got a response back from somone at their offices (I sent the e-mail to six e-mail addresses affliated with AFNI and the response came from someone who was not on my list) this is what the e-mail said:Should I just go ahead and do a credit delete? It was for a family member of his and he doesn't want to file fraud.Was this sent to me by mistake? Was this supposed to be an internal e-mail?Thing is is that I do not remember communicating with these people at all and this debt is because I put a utility bill in my name for my cousin and he never paid it!! How could they know this??What, if any, should my response be??

The assignment could be pulled by the OC or the debt could have been sold to another CA!!!!!
Happy..send this even though the CRA verified this account, when i disputed w/them?

You should be made aware that in TWYLA BOATLEY, Plaintiff, vs. DIEM CORPORATION, No. CIV 03-0762 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF ARIZONA, 2004, the courts ruled that reporting a collection account indeed is considered collection activity.You recieved a request for validation from me on 9/18/07. You have not responded to that request in any way, and since that time you have updated information on my Experian credit report on 10/10/07 and on my Equifax report TWICE on 10/15/07. Each of these updates constitutes a violation of FDCPA.While I prefer not to litigate, I will use the courts as needed to enforce my rights under the FDCPA.I look forward to an uneventful resolution of this matter.I request that all contact with me be in writing, and only when you can provide adequate validation of this alleged debt. To refresh your memory on what constitutes legal validation, I am giving a list of the required documentation:
- Complete payment history, the requirement of which has been established via Spears v Brennan 745 N.E.2d 862; 2001 Ind. App. LEXIS 509 and
- Agreement that bears the signature of the alleged debtor wherein they agreed to pay the original creditor.
- Letter of sale or assignment from the original creditor to your company. (Agreement with your client that grants you the authority to collect on this alleged debt.) Coppola v. Arrow Financial Services, 302CV577, 2002 WL 32173704(D.Conn., Oct. 29, 2002) - Information relating to the purchase of a bad debt is not proprietary or burdensome. Debtor must phrase their request clearly to obtain: The source of a debt and the amount a bad debt buyer paid for plaintiff's debt, how amount sought was calculated, where in issue a list of reports to credit bureaus, and documents conferring authority on defendant to collect debt.
