    I would have to agree with the other attorneys that you may have to pay based on what you've described here. I sympathize with your situation. Contact a local attorney regardless to get their thoughts.

    I agree with my colleague, the next step is to contact a debt collection lawyer to help you collect on the debt. Some only request a portion of the recovery for their payment, so nothing really comes out of your pocket.

    Many times you might be surprised that some of the communications these collectors are making to you are illegal. Feel free to send me a message, I would be happy to talk to you to see if there is more information I could provide to help. I am not sure the amount of your debt, but you have displayed a desire to keep things discreet. A lot of the time, if a letter is sent to these debt collectors to inform them of their illegal activity and the possibility that you might sue them for it,...

    If you're saying that you are being threatened or harassed by debt collectors, feel free to send me a message for more information when you are able. I know people in your area with my firm who can assist you, and would be happy to provide you with any information. Sometimes these collectors end up owing you up to $1000.00 for violating federal law, or also $500-1500.00 per call made after you told them to stop calling if they are using an auto-dialer to call you. I have also seen many...

    If this agency lied to you, then they might be the ones ending up owing YOU money. I would not hesitate to get the compensation you deserve under the law in my opinion. It sounds like they have violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act from what you have described. Feel free to contact me via email, or call my office on Monday, and my firm will direct you to a Florida attorney who can help you for no cost out of your pocket. Sometimes attorneys are also able to have them remove...

    They can ask for it, as the other attorneys have mentioned. You can refuse to give your name, but definitely do not give false information.

    I am not sure whether that Circuit has precedent cases dealing with the FDCPA, that have held that all others who subsequently work the alleged debt are bound and deemed to have been put on notice from that point forward. Personally I doubt that would be the case, unless it could be proven that all who worked the alleged debt thereafter were given knowledge of the validation request that had not yet been answered. If you're having problems with a collector, feel free to email me your info or...

    Feel free to contact my office anytime on Monday, or email me. In my opinion, it is possible that this agency overshadowed your right to dispute the validity of the total charges of the debt. Yes you owe the debt, but who knows the the fees and interest that they wish to charge are valid? They could owe you max $1000.00 for violating the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and we know attorneys who might represent you at no cost out of your pocket.
