    Default Collection of disputed debt

    Hello:

    A friend (Illinois) is having a dispute with Herz Rental Services. Herz
    believes the friend owes them money ($10,000, incident-related). He thinks
    he does not. He informed them in writing about his opinion, suggesting they
    sue him and the court decides who is right.

    Herz don't sue him, but instead hire collection agencies. The frient already
    had been contacted by two; he sent the prior correspondence with Herz to the
    first one, and they stopped their activities. Obviously, now Herz found
    another agency, a law firm, so it's all over again.

    Is there a way to stop Herz from hiring agents for collecting the debt they
    know is disputed? Is there any violation in the practices of referring
    disputed debt to a 3rd party collector? Is there a way to discourage Herz
    from future collection efforts besides the lawsuit?

    thanks
