Case law

Recommended Posts

We have many cases where CA's tell consumers the DV has to be signed. Here is case law that states it doesn't even have to be in writing:

Spearman v. Tom Wood Pontiac-GMC, Inc., 2002 WL 31854892 (S.D. Ind. Nov. 4, 2002). Collector’s incorrect § 1692g validation disclosure that any dispute must be in writing was a false representation in violation of § 1692e.

The 2nd Circuit have opined in In re RMA 208 FRD 498 ( 2002)

Just remember that an oral dispute does not necessarily trigger the obligation to validate, even if made w/in the first 30 days.

There is a decision, however, that supports the theory that since an oral dispute gives the CA notice of a dispute, it should do something to satisfy itself that the debt is valid. In re Sanchez 173 FSupp2nd 1029
