Odd question about validation

    Ok, I have an old debt, its been passed from CA to CA. I'm getting ready to send yet another validation letter to the "current" CA.

    Here's my problem: The CA has my maiden name on the letter/account. I have recently been married. Should I use my maiden name or my married name on the validation letter? I'm leaning toward my maiden name, because I don't want them getting my married name. On the other hand, if I use my maiden name they could "verify" with the CRB and I can't say 'that's not me' correct?

    BTW there is no reference to my maiden name on my credit reports any longer (at least as of the first of this month)

    Get all maiden names of CRA's as fast as you can. Send validation in Maiden name. After a while you can dispute as "not mine" for maiden name accounts. I've lost a couple of TL's this way. If I'm wrong, someone will correct me.
