I had a question regarding validation letters.. here is the scenario. On my CR, I have a listing from a CA. The original debt is no longer listed, either removed by time or through disputes w/ the CRA. I am not sure offhand.. I sent a validation letter to the CA, they responded by saying they will cease all collection efforts and are curently in the process of investigating the original debt and obtaining the items I requested in my validation letter to insure the debt is valid, with the original creditor. I also followed up w/ the CA with the second validation letter where I assume the debt is invalid because of the lack of response.. they followed up by sending the same letter. Now, my question is what is the CRA and CA supposed to do at this point? Is the CA only required by law to report to the CRA that the items are in dispute currently, but not nessarily have them removed? .. or can I also write a letter to the CA and find out info on who the original creditor is so I can send them a validation letter as well? Thx in advance..
