This company sent me a letter advising me that I owed $25 to Fast Lane # 232 for a bad check that I had supposedly written. The letter went on to advise that unless I disputed the claim within 30 days it would be considered valid and "UNLESS WE RECEIVE PAYMENT, WE ARE READY TO CONSIDER THE ISSUE OF LEGAL PROCEEDINGS IN THE COUNTY COURT".

The letter includes a tear off portion to be completed with my bank and/or credit card information. I immediately attempted to call the numbers provided because I do not write checks and the general feel of the letter was that of a scam.
There was no answer for any either of the numbers provided and no website for the company found on my search engine.

Princeton, Louisiana

I had the same situation a few years ago with these total dumba**&&*. One would think that CEO Phillip McGarvey (if I remember his name correctly) would have had the brains to fix this little lawsuit waiting to happen on their dunning letters, especially since my attorney was kind enough to point out the error of his ways over a non-debt to Columbia House for $25 that I received the same letter on. Of course, this is the same agency who sent the dunning letter to "Shithead", so obviously the collective IQ there is in the low 30s. They cannot legally threaten legal action without giving you a chance to dispute.

They will NOT sue you; and it is doubtful that this will go on your credit report. Fire them off an "Intent to Sue" letter along with your Debt Validation letter and you will never hear from them again.
