Sample debt validation follow-up letter

Submitted by CMBV22 on Mon, 06/02/2008 - 09:04

A Debt Validation Follow-up Letter is sent to the collection agency when they fail to respond to your debt validation request. It is a way to remind the debt collector of your initial validation request. You can use this letter only if you had previously sent a debt validation letter to the collection agency. This letter can also help you get rid of the item if not validated.

What is a Pay for delete letter?

A Pay for delete agreement is normally made with the original creditor or a collection agency (CA) to remove an outstanding debt listing from your credit report.

If the name of the creditor or the CA gets listed in your credit report with a particular debt, you should first ask for debt validation by sending a Debt Validation (DV) letter to the creditor. Once your debt gets validated by the creditor, you need to send a Pay for delete letter.

What is debt validation?

Debt validation is the debtor's right to ask for validation of a debt a creditor claims he owes. A letter requesting validation of the debt should be sent to the creditor or the collection agency, if they claim that you owe the debt, either by sending a collection letter or by reporting the debt on your credit report.
