they are not a law firm, they just have the same appear like it does to imply they are one. on their own paperwork its states "this communication is from a debt collector." this guy stating otherwise must be one of their goonies trying to scare you.

Please call 1-440-735-5115
and reference this number: 22578480

I been receiving calls from Mccarthy Burgess & Wolff in reference to "an important business matter." The tone of the message is very direct and intrusive. I would like inquire via third party what this is in reference to...

I have been receiving harassing phone calls ever since I got this number, in reference to debts that are not mine. I have continually asked to be removed from call lists but have had no luck. Would you please help by calling to inquire about this "IMPORTANT BUSINESS MATTER." -And If per chance they wish to give me any money, you can have it for your efforts. Thank you sincerely,

Is the bill addressed to you? What is the name of the company?

Does it have these disclosures in the letter or something similer?:

"This communication is from a debt collector,,,,etc..."

You have 30 days to dispute this debt............etc"

If so format this letter to your needs and send it to them certified mail return receipt requested. do not sign the letter, only type or initial your name, so they cannot forge your name on documents at another time.

Your Name
Your Address

Date: March 9, 2005

Collection Agency Name

Re: Acct Ref. # XXXXX and XXXXX

To Whom It May Concern:

This letter is being sent to you in response to a alleged debt. Be advised that this is not a refusal to pay, but a notice sent pursuant to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, 15 USC 1692g Sec. 809 (b) that your claim is disputed and validation is requested.

This is NOT a request for verification or proof of my mailing address, but a request for VALIDATION made pursuant to the above named Title and Section. I respectfully request that your offices provide me with competent evidence that I have any legal obligation to pay you
What I need you to provide as the debt validation is as follows:
1. What the money you say I owe is for;
2. Explain and show me how you calculated what you say I owe;
3. Provide me with copies of any papers that show I agreed to pay what you say I owe;
4. Provide a verification or copy of any judgment if applicable;
5. Identify the original creditor;
6. Prove the Statute of Limitations has not expired on this account
7. Show me that you are licensed to collect in my state
8. Provide me with your license numbers and Registered Agent
9. Proof that the collection company owns the debt/or has been assigned the debt. (You are legally entitled to collect this particular debt from me.) This is basic contract law.
10. Complete payment history, starting with the original creditor. (I need to have proof of my payment history with original Creditor, what the amount of the debt was when the creditor assigned the debt to your company, and what fees/interest has been tacked on to this debt and how you/they determined these fees.) This requirement was established by the case Fields v. Wilber Law Firm, Donald L. Wilber and Kenneth Wilber, USCA-02-C-0072, 7th Circuit Court, Sept 2004..
11. Copy of the original signed loan agreement or credit card application. (My contract with the original creditor establishing the debt between us.) This is also basic contract law.

At this time I will also inform you that if your offices have reported invalidated information to any of the 3 major Credit Bureau's (Equifax, Experian or TransUnion) this action might constitute fraud under both Federal and State Laws. Due to this fact, if any negative mark is found on any of my credit reports by your company or the company that you represent

I will not hesitate in bringing legal action against you for the following:
1. Violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act
2. Violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act
3. Defamation of Character

If your offices are able to provide the proper documentation as requested in the following declaration, I will require at least 30 days investigating this information and during such time all collection activity must cease and desist.

Also during this validation period, if any action is taken which could be considered detrimental to any of my credit reports, I will consult with my legal counsel for suit. This includes any listing any information to a credit reporting repository that could be inaccurate or invalidated or verifying an account as accurate when in fact there is no provided proof that it is.
If your offices fail to respond to this validation request within 30 days from the date of your receipt, all references to this account must be deleted and completely removed from my credit file and a copy of such deletion request shall be sent to me immediately.

I would also like to request, in writing, that no telephone contact be made by your offices to my home or to my place of employment. If your offices attempt telephone communication with me, including but not limited to computer generated calls and calls or correspondence sent to or with any third parties, it will be considered harassment and I will have no choice but to file suit. All future communications with me MUST be done in writing and sent to the address noted in this letter by USPS.

It would be advisable that you assure that your records are in order before I am forced to take legal action.

Best Regards,

They just called me a few minutes ago about the $96,000 bill I owe AT&T.

I like to pay my bills, but if the advertising worked like they claimed it should then I would have no problem paying them.

These idiots call me up acting like they are an attorney, saying they are on a recorded line. Now I find out they are simply debt collectors from Ohio.

Makes me feel alot better :)


Sub: #7 I figure, if it's that important, why is it an automated call.

I figure, if it's that important, why is it an automated call. When a HUMAN calls, then I'll worry about it.

I'm having the same calls. Pay supermedia directly if you owe them. F*ck MB&W. That's what we are doing. Supermedia will send you invoice directly if you ask them and if you have your account number. And you'll see that the difference between what Supermedia says you owe and what MB&W says you owe is about $1000.00
