Sprint PCS and Cavalry have devised the perfect method of harrasment and fraud; by ignoring you.

In 1998 I cancelled using my sprint cell service, paid a bulk of the bill and was to finish paying a small balance the following billing cycle; when it came around I found Sprint had added a monthly surcharge of around $45.00 even though the account was cancelled. They said it was customary to do this until the bill was paid in full. AND my $200.00 payment was seen nowhere in the records.

Bank had the cancelled check however. The usual began; I send a copy they say nothing. I call and get no response back. I refused to pay anymore until they rectified the error and they kept tacking on their premium.

Eventually it gets 'purchased' Cavalry, who send the collection notice. I called to their offices and explained about the Sprint situation and they fellow says - well send what you know you owe with an information letter. I asked that he send a revised bill reflecting the info I just provided, before I send anything - to which he agreed, and that was the last I heard from them for awhile.

Of course it was on my credit history; like a slow blinking red light.

I moved a couple of times since this all occurred, but they've caught up with me again and are now offering 'a deal' - which is still too high according to my reconning, but I was about to pay it just to have it done with... Until I read the reports on this site.

Waiting a little longer to see what may transpire won't make it worse; and good luck to all.

There is - after all - no guarantee they'll correct their own report history either.

Arizona seems to be an unusually lenient State toward providers/retailers and overly harsh for the consumer.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Never send them money

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

Never send anyone like Cavalry any money at all. Send a letter with return receipt demanding proof of the amount, and proof of any contractual obligation to them (Cavalry). Especially if this dates from 1998 don't send any money at all. If you were to send them any money, the clock starts all over. I'm sure it's past the statute of limitions. Even indeed if they were to sue you over this amount, all you'd have to do is show up with your credit report and it's over for Cavalry. If they were to sue, they are counting on you not to show up so that they could get a default judgment.

If they've put an entry on your credit report, sue them. They have broken the law. This might also mean that they've illegally re-aged the account.

Cavalry is listed with the Arizona BBB as a bad company. (They aren't even a member either). The only way companies such as Cavalry will be put under is if every one sues them. Every violation they make of the FDCPA is worth $1000 to you. And believe me, they'll make plenty violations. This can be done rather easily at you Justice of the Peace or small claims court.

These scavanger debt buyers count on such things as psychology, and the consumer's ignorance of the law. Cavalry probably literally paid less than $10 for you debt, and is trying to shake you down for the rest. You are under no moral obligation to pay them anything. They are only out to scam a few fast bucks.
