I received a letter from palmer and associates saying i owe 500.00 because i stole some merchandise from sears but i dont understand because the clothes were not even over 100.00 and i got caught in the store and never even left the scene. i took the tags off but other than that the items were not even damaged
Why not attempt to dispute the debt directly with the claimant first?

What is Palmer and Associates' relation to you or Sears? Does the letter say how they came to the $500 figure? Where you arrested as a consequence of this incident?
The more details you can tell us about this case, the better.
