I recently recieved a letter from Asset Acceptance LLC stating I owed money to Hurley State Bank and Radio Shack. I have never heard of this bank and I was so dissatisfied with Radio Shack that I have not shopped the store in over fifteen years.

I responded in writing as they have requested me to do, but Asset Acceptance has continued to harrass me.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

cease and desist

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

If you send any collection company a letter that states cease and desist, there is absolutly no reason to include contact me at such and such. If it says cease communication, the company must stop communicating with you in all forms, except reporting on your credit report if applicable. And to send you the debt validation if you asked for it, but that is at their discretion. There are two SOL's, one is when they have to remove it from your credit report, and one is the date that they can no longer sue you.

Check with your states laws, see if they can still sue you or not. If not ask them to cease and desist, if you can still be sued, you better work this out with them, especially if you are disputing this account. A cease and desist letter does not solve all of your problems, it just stops the communication. Tandy is/was Radio shack, if you previously paid, send AAC proof of this payment, if you have a different dispute, send in a letter telling of the nature of the dispute. I am not a lawyer, I am an ex-debt collector and worked in the dispute department.

Re: Notice to Cease Contact: Case # ________

[If the collection agency has sent written notice, your case number is likely in the letter. If you have not received a written notice from the collection agency, tailor this line accordingly. For example, show the date you were contacted by the collection agency.]

To [person whose name appears on agency's notice to you]:


On [date] was contacted by [name of person who called you] of your agency, who informed me that [name of collection agency] is attempting to collect [amount of claimed debt].

[OR]

On [date] I received a written notice of the claimed debt, a copy of which is attached.

This is to give you notice to cease all contact with me or anyone else except the creditor about this claimed debt. If you must contact me, please do so in writing and not by telephone.

I look forward to your acknowledgement that you have received this notice by [date that is two weeks from date of letter].

Sincerely,

Re: Dispute of Collection Action: Case # ________

[If the collection agency has sent written notice, your case number is likely in the letter. If you have not received a written notice from the collection agency, tailor this line accordingly. For example, show the date you were contacted by the collection agency and/or identify the creditor by name if you can.]

To [person whose name appears on agency's notice to you]:

On [date] I was contacted by [name of person who called you] of your agency, who informed me that [name of collection agency] is attempting to collect [amount of claimed debt]. This individual is collecting on behalf of [name of creditor]. [OR] This individual would not tell me for whom you are supposed to be collecting.

[OR]

On [date] I received a written notice of the claimed debt, a copy of which is attached.

This is to inform you that I dispute the debt because [insert reason for dispute, e.g. the agency has confused you with someone else or the debt was paid. Include copies, not originals, of any correspondence that proves your point]. I am hereby requesting that you confirm the fact that I owe this debt as required by any applicable state and federal laws. Please contact the creditor to obtain verification.

In addition, under the provisions of state and federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), and related consumer statutes, I am hereby instructing you that you are to cease collection of the debt while efforts are made to obtain verification. Until you resolve this error with the creditor, you should neither contact me nor anyone else except the creditor about this collection.

Furthermore, any reporting of this matter to a credit reporting agency is premature. Until you have investigated my dispute, you should not relay negative information to a credit reporting agency. If negative information has already been reported, you will need to notify the agency to remove said report until the investigative process is over so that my credit report remains accurate, or at the very least, my credit report should be updated to reflect my dispute.

Your next contact with me should be either notice that the creditor has failed to provide verification of the debt and that the matter has been closed or that you believe that this debt is valid and are providing proof of my responsibility. If the former, please confirm that I am not being held responsible for the debt in writing and also that if the account has already been noted on my credit report, that you will contact the bureau(s) in question to have the account removed. If the latter, I expect that you will provide me with an explanation as to why you have decided not to remove this account from collections and a copy of all documents relevant to the debt such as the application, bills, records of communications and payments, and any other data that indicates my responsibility.

I am instructing you not to contact any third parties such as my employer, neighbors, friends or family members. In addition, you may not contact me by phone at work or at my home about this collection activity. All future correspondence should be sent to me in writing.

[If you want to still speak to a collector by phone, indicate times when it is okay to contact you or note the name, address, and phone number of your attorney, if you have retained one.]

I look forward to your acknowledgement that you have received this notice by [date that is two weeks from date of letter].
