It is getting harder and harder to keep up, especially with the price of gas and then when you do get a little break, something unexpected comes up. We will be getting the economic stimulus, I have to put it into pipe and digging in my yard, having a drainage problem and don't want it to get bigger, so I have to get a backhoe in, a dump full of shale and of course there will be labor included, so there goes my stimulus package. gone, gone, gone.

Subject: dispute letter
 
Posted on Sat May 03, 2008 10:10 pm  

Hello everyone!

Just to be clear...If I have an old collection account that I want to get deleted from my profile I should first send the debt validation letter? or the deletion settlement letter? Sorry to be redundant but I really just want if off my credit report so if I can get it off by sending a settlement offer/deletion demand I would like to just do that??? Any clarifying advice?

Thanks

DV letter is to determine if the CA can legally collect the debt; it may trigger the removal of credit report entry if the account is disputed and the CA cannot properly report.

PFD letter is used when you know that the debt is legit, that the CA is collecting legitimately, and when you can follow through with your settlement proposal.

Yes goodnatured..hopefully they will. There are so many con-companies out there. I would hate to see anyone fall into that trap.

Ok, I answered the summons and have a court date. What should I expect and what will my response be? Will they have the same burden proof as if I asked for in a debt validation letter? I still have 2 1/2 months before the court date, so should I request validation from the lawyers.

Hi Mas

I think that you should ask for debt validation from the lawyers. After getting the reply, if you agree that you really owe the debt, then you should negotiate your repayment with the creditor's attorney. You can negotiate for a lumpsum payment as many collectors waive a percentage of the original loan, interest and other fees. You can also avoid court summons through this.

They should validate, once they do then you can work out the payment plan that mary is talking about.

Hello Mas

I agree with Mary on this point. I think 2 1/2 months is sufficient to negotiate a payment plan with the creditor's attorney to avoid future court summons.

Sometimes these places leave you hanging on forever. Hopefully she can work out a deal.

If they are not getting back to you then I would attempt one more time to do a certified letter with return reciept requested so that if they do take you to court that you can have some type of evidence that you have been trying to work out something with these people otherwise you may just look like a deadbeat and you do not want to give the people deciding your fate to think that of you.

I also agree with goodnatured. Make all communications with the CA in writing so that you can have some evidence in the court that you tried to have some repayment deal with the CA to pay back your debt.

Hi Mas
Since you have a 2 1/2 months left, I agree with George that you first send a DV letter and then come to an agreement for a repayment plan with your CA since you have the time to do so. Also try to make your CA agree for a PFD agreement. But get everything in writing.
