Richard J. Boudreau & Associates llc Just received a letter from Richard J Boudreau and Associates llc re: being retained by LVNV Funding which evidently bought my debt from Chase Manhattan Bank. Naturally, they want a settlement etc. Looked them up on line and it appears that they are not a reputable company. also if I am thinking correctly, I do not have to deal with them since they are not the original creditor. Is this correct? should I send them a cease and de___ letter. They called at work today and left their name for me to call also and have called 3 times at home.

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.
