Forgot to mention. The collection is a small agency in Ohio. We live in Virginia. Does that make a difference?
You need to get a small recorder for your phone. Debt collectors cannot use such language and they cannot harrass you. When you start to speak to her next time, tell her that for your records, the conversation is being recorded. That should change her tune real fast.
Also, check to see if the collection agency is able to collect a debt in your state.
If you want no further contact with the collection agency, send a: Cease and Desist Letter.
Or advise them that all further communications will take place by mail ONLY.
If you want, file a complaint with the FTC, the original creditor, and the State's Attorney General's Office, for the vulgar and rude language.
Win the Battle,
Just yell back louder. "What the hell is wrong with you that you have to scream all the time?!"
Some people will just try to intimadate and rattle you. If you keep your composure and shout back they usually calm down for some reason. If not, at least you had fun yelling back.
Or you could use the horn they blow at sporting events (you know the one) right in their ear!!!!!
Great idea, Mom. The worst part of the whole conversation was the way she insulted my intelligence. She even told me she had a copy of my husband's medical records!!!
What do you think I should do now.....just wait and send the second validation letter? (and buy a horn!!!) Thanks for your advice.
How do you find out if a collection agency can collect in your state? I bet this has been covered a million times but I thought I'd take a shortcut and ask you.
Thanks a bunch
Here's a link for SOL
Oh, I see, you meant SOL..I get it, duh...I feel dumb. thanks, Momof3!
~C~ I think what you're asking is how to find out if the collection agency is licensed to work in another state.
I would like to know how to find out if an agency is licensed in Virginia.
Sandra! Right! Thanks for clearing up my thinking...
Don't pay unless they give you what you want in writing, these agencies will lie and tell you the moon is made of cheese to get your money!
Here is the letter you need.
Ooops!! use this one.
