ED Magedson – Founder
Citibank701 E. 60TH STreet N Sioux Falls, South Dakota United States of America
I received a collection notice in June of 2009 from a collections company named Capitol Management Services . The notice I received claimed that I owed approximately $3,900 to Citibank. I immediately sent a letter to them disputing the debt and requesting verification of the debt. I never received any response.
Three days ago, I receive a 1099-C from Citibank South Dakota NA, showing a debt of the same amount which was supposidly forgiven on Aug. 20, 2009. This is exactly two months to the day from the collection letter.
My question is, how can they do this since they haven't even responded to my request for proof of the debt? I have searched in vain for info on guidelines which creditors and collection agencies must follow regarding this matter, with no success until finding this site.
Does anyone know how I can find out how to deal with this situation as I don't want to spend resources on a tax attorney if I can avoid it?
