I got a letter from Mitchell N. Kay today on a $300 debt. I had sent Plaza a letter requesting proof they owned it and never got a response, now his other business is writing me.
The part I find illegal is that the address says:
Law Offices of Mitchell N. Kay P.C. PO Box 9123 Newton MA, 02459-9123 1-800-509-1068
He is not a Massachusetts attorney and I don't think he is an attorney at all anymore. Should I send another validation letter to the New York address or should I just rip it up and ignore them? What else should I do?

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.
