So i recently received a letter from this law office asking for $6.42. This is for a supposed book that I did not return to Neebo.com. I just wanted to know how legitimate this letter and law firm is and if the amount that they are asking me for has to be paid.I know for a fact that the books were returned on time, and I have checked my account with Neebo and they do not show any records of any books not being returned on time.
They are a collection law firm and their demand on you may or may not be legitimate depending on all the facts and circumstances that surround the transaction. Only you would know this.

They are a glorified collection agency that happens to be a law firm as well. If they sent you a debt collection letter simp,y write back and ask them to validate the debt. If they can't they must leave you alone. Besides I really don't think they will pursue the matter further over $6.42.
They are a collections firm. Do you have a book that you didn't return to Neebo.com? The answer to that question will give you some insight as to the legitimacy of their claim.
