Ok here I go......I live in CA and i have this verizon account being handled by Midland CA. I do not recall ever having Verizon? I am past my initial dunning letter. (I do not recall getting it???). I sent Midland two DV letters and both got no response. today I finally called Midland and the CA told me that they never received the DV letters and that i need to provide them proof that the account doesnt belong to me ????lol.....I asked the lady how I can prove that the account doesnt belong to me and she answered that I must get a police report. :shock: ....She even went as far as saying that they have enough proof to take me to court.....I still cant believe that she told me I am responsible to prove to them that the account is not mine....Do you guys think I should go get a police report and fax it to them?
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
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.
