How to tackle First IRS Legal Department collection agency

The steps outlined below will help you deal with the collection agency in a better way.

  • Check if the collection agency is real or is just a scam: Ask for their name, phone number, address, and the name of the original creditor. If required, send a debt validation letter through certified mail or fax.
  • Don't give your account information: Don't be afraid of handling the collection calls, but avoid giving away your bank account information. Otherwise, there can be an unauthorized withdrawal from your account. Also avoid giving out any other personal information.
  • Record calls: If your state's law allows you to record calls, you should record the collection agency's calls to use later as proof. If your state doesn't permit you to record conversations, then keep a written log of what was said, who you spoke to, and when you spoke to them.
  • Get a written agreement: If the debt is validated by the collection agency, get an agreement in writing that the account status will get updated as "Paid" on your credit report as soon as you pay off the account.

These guys are a bunch of ass clowns. First they called me on Tues and told me my outstanding payday loans (Both of them are illegal in California by the way) are a class C felony. Then he says he sent notice to my house on 1/25. That was last week. I tried to call them back and get an address where I can send a debt validation letter and the I kept getting hung up on and answering machines with no calls back. Then when I did get a live person the guy didnt even know what a debt validation letter was. LOL I asked how he could be in the debt collection business and not know. He refused to give me their address until I gave him my name. WTF should I do?




tell the clown that you will not lower yourself and speak them until you get something in writing.then hang up and keep a log of all calls they make.what phone number shows on your caller id?that might help locate them.

Is First IRS Legal Department even a valid collection agency? I had my first encounter with them this week they called my work and told me if I didn't make a payment that day they would assume I was defaulting on the loan and take me court! I was so caught off gaurd and don't appreciate people threatening me I went off on the woman and asked her how she was going to take me to court when I have received no documentation on the validity of the charge and $200 bonus fee they wanted to tack on! I'm sending them a cease and desist letter as well any other documents needed to validate the amount of money they are trying to charge me. What a nightmare!

format this letter to your needs, I would also add on it for them to include the name of the original creditor, date of last payment, the amount of last layment. Also ask for their license number to collect debt in your state(if a license is needed)

Send it certified Mail Return receipt requested.....do not sign your name on it, just initial it.
