I received a letter today from the Law Offices of Mitchell N. Kay claiming they were attempting to collect a debt on behalf of Asset Acceptance (the lowest of the low of bottom feeding junk debt buyers) who had supposedly bought an account from Fortunoff's (aren't they out of business...??) in my maiden name. If I ever had an account with Fortunoff's, it had to have been over twenty years ago now, and the account has long since been closed. I have no debt with anyone at all, much less some company I haven't shopped with in over two decades.

These thugs are threatening to go to court to seek a judgment and then access my bank accounts to steal this alleged "debt" from me.

I immediately sent them a very strongly worded debt validation letter, opened complaints with the FTC, the NY Attorney General, the Michigan Attorney General (Asset Acceptance is headquarted in Michigan), the NJ Attorney General, and I filed a complaint against these sleazoids with the disciplinary board of the NY Bar Association.

I HIGHLY recommend the latter action. Enough complaints with the NY Bar Association, and these guys are in trouble. File complaints with everyone listed above (substitute your home state for NJ if you live elsewhere) and demand, in writing, VALIDATION (as opposed to VERIFICATION) of the debt. CC the FTC, Attorneys General and the NY Bar Association on this letter, and send certified, return receipt requested to both Mitchell N. Kay and to whatever entity this lowlife law firm is supposedly collecting for.

If they take you to court, SHOW UP and FIGHT BACK. This law firm is a sleazy operation acting on behalf of even sleazier bottom feeders.

Fraud by Mitchell N. Kay, P.C.

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

The Law Offices of Mitchell N. Kay left a message with my husband for me to call them. I googled them first and saw that they were a collection agency. I then got online and ordered a free credit report. My credit report was perfect. Today someone from Mitchell N. Kay's office called me and told me they were calling about the $17,000 I owed Capital One. I told him I never had any accounts with Capital One and that I had a copy of my credit report. He told me social security numbers don't lie and hung up on me. I then called Capital One Fraud Division and they confirmed that I did not have any accounts past or present with them. The NYS Attorney General is already investigating Mitchell N. Kay and I have filed a consumer complaint with them. In addition I have filed complaints with the FTC, the NYS Bar Association, the FBI, my state senator, and my congresswoman. Tomorrow I will be filing a complaint with the attorney general of the state I live in. Maybe a class action lawsuit is in order.
