Frederick J. Hanna & Associates, P.C. is attempting to collect on a debt that has already been settled and charged off by the original credit card company. They are aware of that fact but they continue to send letters of intimidation and make phone calls to my home on a debt they have even admitted was settled. I spoke with one of their associates by phone on 2/10/09 and she said she noticed that the debt had been paid and that I would not hear from them anymore.

Today I received a contradictory letter from them with another attempt to collect on a debt that was settled in 2004. I have my original certified letters as proof of the settlement in full and acceptance of the settlement from Capital One. They know this debt has been paid in full but they are attempting to force me to pay something I no longer owe.

The last letter I received from them stated the amount is due in full and upon receipt and they will notify their client who will then mark the account paid in full. This company needs to be shut down because they ignore facts and will do anything to steal your money. They prey on citizens whom they assume do not know their legal rights.

Info. vs. Hanna

AUTHOR: HannaH8R - (USA)

The Georgia Supreme Court says Hanna is a "law firm," so you have to submit a bar complaint vs. them (and not a consumer complaint with the state OCA or federal FCC -- but fine if you do that too anyway).  You may submit a bar complaint vs. Fred Hanna (the owner of the "firm") and any atty. that may have contacted you that also violated bar rules for atty.s:

(Call and ask for a bar complaint, and if they have them online):

State Bar of Georgia

Atlanta, Georgia 30303

RE:  Request for Validation of Debt, 15 U.S.C. § 1692g

Dear Sir or Madam:

This is my formal notice that I am disputing this debt, and requesting immediate validation under Section 809 of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1692g, of the debt from your office.  I am requesting that your office immediately send me a copy of the following documents: (a) the name, address, and phone number of an employee of the original creditor that can validate the debt, (b) proof of who is the current legal owner of the debt, and that you represent the original creditor or debt buyer, and (c) the original signed note, contract, credit agreement, or instrument creating the debt.

I am disputing this debt for the following reasons:  this debt has not been validated.  I do not know whether your debt collection company is the legal owner of this debt or not, or if the amounts charged are valid.

This is also my formal notice under 15 U.S.C. § 1692c, to you to cease all further communications with me, my family members, and my associates and all third parties, unless I give you express permission to do so.  You have my express permission to mail me the requested validation documents to the address listed below, but I do not give you permission to contact me over the phone, or in any other way except as specifically addressed in this letter.
                    
This letter is not meant in any way to be an acknowledgment that I owe this money.


Sincerely,


John Doe
