Acquired Assets, Ltd. Debt Collection Harassment?
Is Acquired Assets, Ltd. Harassing you over a debt?
If you have recently received a call from a collection agency, saying you owe a particular amount, you have three options; seek to know more, pay the debt immediately, or ignore the debt collector. The first option is the best.
Choosing to ignore a debt collector is a bad idea because it can lead to ugly future events like surprise lawsuits. Immediately paying a debt collector who calls you is also a bad idea because you may be paying a debt that isn’t yours, a debt that doesn’t exist, or a debt that already been settled or discharged in bankruptcy.
When you get a call from a debt collector, the wise thing to do is to seek to know more by seeking validation or verification. This will help you know if you should pay the debt or not.
While you do this, the debt collector is prohibited from calling you or making any attempts to collect on the debt. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act is a law that guides debt collection and it frowns against any form of debt collection harassment.
If a debt collector is making you feel uncomfortable or insecure, please contact us now.
What is a debt validation request?
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act mandates debt collectors to honor a debtor’s debt validation request. A debt validation request as the name implies is a letter that requests for debt verification/validation.
Debt validation can save you from paying debts you shouldn’t be paying or debts that the collection agency is not authorized to collect from you.
A debt validation request must be sent within 5 days of the first contact from the debt collector.
After you have requested for a debt validation request, the collection agency is expected to cease contacting you until they respond by sending you a debt validation letter. This letter should contain vital information like a copy of the original contract, proof that you owe the debt, the original creditor, and your contact information.
