They are listed as collection agency in BBB record. So they have to follow fdcpa rules. Write them letter and send it via CMRRR. They cannot start collection procedure before responding to your demand for validation.

How much can they legally demand from you a month if the debt is valid?

Well They may not be willing to work anything out with you and demand all the money now...but if that were the case and you couldnt do it, they would take you to court and the judge would set up payments that are suitable...But do try to negotiate with them for something that you can afford. They may be nice about it or they may be hard butts...Just dont let them scare you or intimidate you

Let them validate the debt before you start worrying about paying. No matter what,as the old saying goes.They can't squeeze blood from a rock.

I started receving calls from them through the # 866 640 6996 with the extention # 2800 and a reference #. A recording says that it is an important business matter . They claim I owe them money. I read online that I should write them a letter and tell them to stop harassing me. Also send a copy of letter to BBBureau in Ohio where they are out of.

They have been calling and harrasing me saying that they are attorneys and will sue my company forcing me to give it to them. What can I do? I have told them several times that the total balance is not mine, my ex signed the contract for the bill not me,but they won't listen?

Jennifer: Check your state laws about recording phone calls and then start recording them. It is illegal to threaten you like that. Also send them a DV letter. If your ex signed the contract then there is no way they can go after you (might be able to if you live in a community property state and you two were married when the debt was made- but not sure)
