I received a collection letter from RJM Acquisitions, and immediately attempted a phone call to inquire as to why I am receiving a collection letter regarding a Wachovia bank account that has been inactive for 4 years! In addition to that, I had opened the account in July, 2000... this letter stated the opening date as May 21, 2004.... when I was out of the country!

So I called their 1800 number during normal business hours.... and they were closed. I decided to google their company in hope of finding a website I could send an email communication to, and instead found, under every result for RJM, something to do with "The Rip Off Report."

It seems this company has done this various times before, and from what I've gathered so far, most of their false claims deal with bank accounts. I am interested in the legalities of what do do here... I am trying to rebuild my credit, but i will NOT pay this false claim... any suggestions?

Kristina, you are NOT dealing with a BANK, you are dealing with a 3rd party debt collector/Bottomfeeder

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

Kristina,

I noticed you posted your ripoff under the Bank Category. You should have posted in the Collection Agency category so others will get this in relevent search results.

Follow my other posts in the proper way to send a REQUEST FOR DEBT VALIDATION.

Faron,

The FDCPA applies to THIRD PARTY DEBT COLLECTORS, not third party DEBTORS. The debtor is the person who owes the money.

The main thing is

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

Do not talk to them over the phone for any reason. There is nothing that can be proved in court via telephone conversation. Also, the item listed by Michael in Number 2 is called a Cease Communication letter that can only be used against a third party debtor. When you send this letter do not sign it. Only provide your typewritten signature.

You have to be careful with these bottomfeeders. They have no qualms about lying in court. The thing about statute of limitations is you have to officially raise that as a defense in court. The judge will never bring it up.

Monitor your credit with the three reporting agencies to ensure they haven't tried to tarnish your credit. If they do, send a letter to each of the agencies stating this claim is invalid because it is beyond the statute of limitations in North Carolina.

You should also visit naca.net which is a collection of Consumer Rights attorneys that deal with this issue. Be as informed as you can be to fight these low-life scum. Good luck!
