So my fiance received a "letter" from these yahoos. After we researched W&A, we decided that this was definitely unethical and he's never owed this debt at all, the papers that were with the letter saying "come to court this date or else" were so obviously faked I had to laugh.
Though, to the unknowing, I could see them getting caught up in it and not thoroughly researching it (most likely the ONLY way these guys get their money).
Now, I've already drawn up a "show me the proof" debt validation letter (and will be sending it Fedex with signature confirmation and tracking #).
What I need help with is drawing up a letter to send to our Attorney General (VA) informing this state of this practice. I plan on making copies of the papers received and drawing up a letter of complaint to the AG.
Any assistance anyone?
What if W&A do not respond before the court date (May 14th at 10am)? Do we still show up? Do we call the courthouse to verify that we have a court date set?

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
