papers and when I called the law office they send me to a collection agency. I have no paper work in had from the attorney or the collection agency therefore who really owned my debt? I register mail a letter to the collection agency requesting a Debt Validation. Did the Attorney's office has any legal right to call my boss asking him to verify my SS # and my employment stating that they are preparing court papers to garnish my wages for a credit card debt. How legal it is for them to tell my boss this when they did not send me any paper work and this debt is 6 yrs old and they bought the debt.
