  • What does collection have to send you to validate a debt? Virginia

    A collection agency sent me a letter saying I owed a certain debt and also told me I had thirty days to ask them to validate the debt. If I send them a letter within thirty days and ask them to validate the debt what information do they have to send me to validate it?

    A letter from a collection agency is just a piece of paper.
    • Do you actually owe the money?

    If so, you need to pay someone. If not, use the paper the next time you are in a restroom.

      For what it's worth --
      Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
