Hello, What a great forum. I have been looking it over for about 5 weeks now and researching what I can and trying to search for my answers .. Here's a brief history of my story/problem. My husband was attending a really crappy tech school, they gave us a private loan through them. My husband stopped going to this school. They are trying to bill us for the whole time of the program even tho he went only half way. While he was still in the program (right as he was getting ready to quit) I asked the school for a breakdown of what we owe so I can dispute it. The financial aid office and business office told me they offer no such breakdown and were just clueless and rude. At that point I decided to stop talking to them and deal with it if it went on to collections. My train of thought was they would not have enough records to fight me back on this. Ok a year later we received our first collection letter dated 7/18/2014 from Williams & Fudge, LLC. I came to this website and researched what to do, at that time I sent a DV letter (the template I found on here under samples). I did send it CMRRR, it was signed for by them on 8/15/2014. I received no response at all from the CA. The calls had stopped. Well yesterday I went to draft up my follow up letter to the DV. I pulled my husbands TU report and saw the CA had reported him for the first time on 9/17/2014, so after they signed for the DV letter. AND I couldn't believe it but the phone calls started back up as I was researching what to do next, what a coincidence! I know it is a violation to report on his credit until they validate the debt.. Anything else I should take note of? After sending the DV from this site, I have learned the form I used may have too much mumble jumble, so I am not really concerned they started calling again, I am concerned they are now reporting to his credit for the first time without validating the debt. The OC never reported it to any of the 3 bureaus, I had pulled all 3 of those before drafting the DV. I was only able to pull TU for free yesterday so I am not sure if they have reported on EQ and EX since. So besides the DV follow up letter, is there something else I should do at this point? Thanks so much I am in California
