Subject: debt validation letters- collectors or creditors?
 
Posted on Wed Mar 05, 2008 7:57 pm  

Hi everybody,
This is a great web-site. A lot of useful information.
I have a question: should a debt validation letter be sent to collection agencies or to the creditors? or both?
Thank you

I think it should be sent to whom ever owns the acount. I would send one to both the collection agency and the creditor unless someone here answer your question and knows the exact answer.

DV letters are for collection agencies, as creditors are usually not covered by the FDCPA.

Thank you guys.
Since DV letters are for collection agencies, what should I sent to the creditors who reported me? as I do not recognise the debt in my credit report as mine. Or should I just call them and inquire?
Many thanks

You can always call and ask but maybe Morningstar has a better way of going about it.

Nope, that's what I'd do, too. Find out exactly what it is, then proceed appropriately.

If that item is wrongly reported you should be disputing it the bureau.

I agree with Anthony. If the item is wrongly listed in your credit report, you can always send a dispute letter to the credit bureaus asking them to remove the listing. The CRAs will verify it with the original creditor and remove the listing from your report if you do not owe the debt.

While I am frightened that I am not agreeing with Justin and Anthony, I do feel the need to point out that the CRAs dont always do the most in depth investigation into a debts validity. If they did we wouldnt need DV and MOV. I have personally presented EXP with proof of a fraudulent account to be told it is not there job to validate it, just that the CA can prove they have the right info. While it was nothing a trip tp the local courthouse coudn't fix, if I left it up to EXP I'd still have that mark

See, I am just a whole lot disgusted with these credit reporting agencies, these scores and reports means so much in every day life. I think they should be held to a higher standard. If the collector can not validate then it should not be put on the report. I think that the burden of proof should be on them after all they are the ones with all the paper work and proof, SUPPOSEDLY.
