I had four phones under my name with verizon in 2000. One for me and three for friends. Mine and one friend were always on time, the other two were not. I cancelled their phones on the 1 year contract date. Their total was high and had to be paid to me over 6 months, it was eventually paid.

After cancellation of the phones, Verizon didn't allow for partial payments so they sent both phone totals to a collection agency. I paid in full as soon as I recieved the letter. Everything was fine until 5 months later, when I recieved the same amount due from a different collection agency.

Cleared it up, then another 5 months and another agency, and so forth. Now I have Allied Interstate threatening to damage my credit unless they recieve payment, after the first letter I sent copies of documentation and a letter to contest. Now in this second letter they are refusing to aknowledge the information I sent. I'm sick of this constant harassment every few months. Someone needs to be sued.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Do you get letters stating the balance is paid in full ?

AUTHOR: Ashlee - (U.S.A.)

#1 . If you pay in full or settle any account you need to get a letter stating that very fact...When you don't , you will get screwed...

If by chance you have a letter from the original creditor stating the balance and you have kept reciepts from your payments ....fax it to the collection agency and the creditor along with a cease and desist letter...That clears you of the debt and keeps any agency from contacting you again , unless , the creditor sends your account by mistake to another collection you really shouldnt be contacted....

PLEASE , PLEASE GET IN THE HABIT OF ASKING FOR LETTERS FOR YOUR OWN FINANCIAL PROTECTION...

If you have any questions that you need answered post something I'll be watching out for you .....

SINCERELY,
Hopefully Helpful

#2 Consumer Suggestion

I've had this problem too

AUTHOR: S - (U.S.A.)

with these same people.

I suggest you read the info here at

http://www.creditinfocenter.com/
rebuild/debt_validation.shtml

Each separate statute (law) they violate in trying to collect means you can sue the debt collector for $1000 per violation.

http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/casecode
/uscodes/15/chapters/41/
subchapters/v/toc.html

Remember they have only 30 days to validate the debt.

Hope this helps!
