I get a collection letter from Resurgent of LVNV's entities. I send them a DV letter. They send me what they consider validation....something printed on their letterhead that says "We are collecting for Washington Mutual, the amount is $XXXX and there may have been interest added to make it $xxxx.

Can u believe this!!! :lol: :evil:

good luck with them, they put me threw hell and I never got validation. They did get a judgment though, pieces of $H!T.

Guest, are you serious? I am sorry to hear that. Just wondering, how did they get the judgement without validation?

OP unfortunately,yours and guests experiences are the rule not the your validation letter stating that is not validation.

Well I dealt with them last year and then they passed it to an attorney in my state, at the time I was in the hospital. LVNV Funding is unlicensed in my state and was still able to win. I called all the branches of my state and because there are not enough complaints, they won't help or do anything.

Keep on your toes and send everything you can and make sure you document everything. If they pass it to an attorney, DV them too. It will be a tough fight but if they don't have any documentation, then they will just keep passing it around hoping you slip up and fail to answer within 30 days.

If they did have validation, they would respond immediately and then sue.

hope everything works out for you.

I would send them another letter stating that is in no way validation.

Correct me if I'm wrong; however, if they sue after validation is requested, without validating the debt of even responding to your request, that is a violation of the fdcpa. Once validation is requested, they must suspend all collection attempts until they validate.

A lawsuit is considered collection activity.

And as PaulMergel stated and from what I have read, LVNV has a terrible track record with adhering to the FDCPA.

Yep if you sent validation prior to receiving a summons the suit would be considered collection activity. You would need proof of delivery which is why we advocate sending everything certified return receipt mail.

I too am dealing with them. They have a lawyer in my state (GA) representing them. They sent me a "verification" with name of creditor, amt owed, date of last payment" - I sent them back a letter requesting validation again and I stated "your verification leaves a lot to be desired and in no way resembles validation of this debt". Then they sent me admissions, documents request, etc. asking me to admit to all kinds of questions and provide them with documents. I replied back to which some of my answers were "defendant does not admit, etc". Of course the lawyers sends me another reply stating I did not properly answer his questions and I have seven days to reply or he will compel the judge to make me pay attorney fees. Why should I provide him with documents or answers, that if he has a case against me, he should have? correct.
