Should I DVL this?

Recommended Posts

Trying to fix mom's credit here. Anyways, she received a letter on Sep 5th from "Arrow Financial Services". This is not the first letter they've sent (so it doesn't' say anything about 30days), but as far as they know my mom doesn't exist to them since she has never had any communication with them of any kind. On top of all that, this debt is way pass the SOL in my state, its 10 years old. So do I send them a DVL in response to the letter they sent?

Here's what the letter says.

Then there is the privacy notice on the back. I don't think I need to post that, its a lot of typing anyways. If I do, let me know and I'll type it up. (damn not having a scanner!).
