A whopping 10 dollars wiped clean
« on: March 13, 2010 09:02:03 PM »
I guess this could go here, recieved a collection notice for 10 bucks and after asking for Validation I recieved a letter today letting me know that the account is being removed from thier records and I no longer owe anything. Still deciding if I want to take the time to try and get some cash for couple little violations they had in thier initial letter regarding my right to request validation

Nice. I suspect that any collector that has any sense wouldn't risk potential litigation over 10 dollars. Although I do realize I'm using an oxymoron in the above sentence by using the words "collector" and "sense" together.

Depending on if you have any other pressing matters, if they don't take precedence I would probably pursue it, too.

No it was North Shore. What ticks me off is that they send out these form letters to just try and score $10 a pop and as soon as they get someone who knows what their rights are (thanks to you guys) they just drop it and move on. So yeah I will probably pursue it, It should be worth at least an ITS.  I will prob have some questions for you guys about it a bit later.
