DV.

If the tickets truely are not yours, send the proper ID Theft/Fraud documents required by the FCRA to both the CA and the CRA's. The list is found in 1681c-2, Subsection 605B. The definition of, and reason for, a valid ID Theft report can be found at 1681z, Subsection 603(q). There is a sticky at the top of the page.

oh I forgot there letter does not have a mini maranda in it and it all demands full payment within 10 days before they.

"these actions may include one or more of the following without further notice

Garnishing your wages or other sources of income;

Attaching your bank account

seizing and selling your real or personal property

filling a lien which will attach to all real property you now own or may later acquire in California"

'Partial payment will not stop collection action or addition of interest you must pay full amount due."

thoughts?

Sorry. Tickets are not "debts" under the FDCPA so the law doesn't apply. Not only do they not have to comply with DV requests, they also don't have to follow any of the other provisions of the FDCPA. That means they can harass you and your family until the sun explodes and there is no law to stop them.

Your only recourse is to hire a lawyer to challenge the citations and have it recalled...if you have proof you did not incur the tickets personally.

According to them I can not dispute it.

I can do the fellowing

1. Pay it in full

2.Go to the courthouse and look at the ticket than pay it

3. Pay it.

I do not think They seen any ID

You could probably get a fairly inexpensive lawyer in the city in CA in question. It may be cheaper than paying the tickets and I would imagine that there would be a way to prove you weren't in CA on the dates of the alleged citations? Sounds like a road trip to CA may be in order.

Failure to Appear, Pay or Comply

  • Failure to resolve your traffic ticket by the due date may result in a $300.00 civil assessment penalty being added to the original bail and a referral to a collection agency pursuant to Penal Code 1214.1, or a warrant for your arrest and/or suspension of your driver's license. In addition, if your account is referred to civil assessment, you may be subject to wage garnishments and bank levies through the Franchise Tax Board Court Ordered Debt Collection Program (see Cases in Collection ).
  • If you have failed to appear on a traffic case and a warrant has been issued, you may either pay the total bail indicated on the warrant notice or appear in court. Warrants cannot be settled over the phone.
  • Each subsequent failure to appear, failure to pay or failure to comply with a court order may result in an additional $300.00 civil assessment or warrant.

  • Failure to resolve your traffic ticket by the due date may result in a $300.00 civil assessment penalty being added to the original bail amount and a referral of the case to a collection agency pursuant to Penal Code 1214.1.
  • A traffic ticket referred to collection may result in the suspension of your driver's license and may be subject to wage garnishments and bank levies through the Franchise Tax Board Court Ordered Debt Collection Program.
    • The suspension will not be lifted until the bail set on the citation or the total amount of the fine and the $300.00 assessment is paid in full.
    • Once full payment is received, the California State Department of Motor Vehicles will be notified to release the suspension hold on the driver's license.
    • Driving with a suspended license is a misdemeanor offense and may result in the vehicle driven at the time the offense is committed being impounded for a period of 30 days.

Is this trolley company a city run outfit or is this Alliance 1 a private company or a contractor for a city contract?

My take is that if you have never ridden the trolley in question and/or never been to California, then you need to contact the Attorney General in your state and California and file complaints, maybe even take steps as if you had been a victim of identity theft as well! No legal or morally compelling reason for you to pay for illegal actions of someone else.

OK, let me see if I have this straight.

You received a letter from Alliance One, stating that you have unpaid traffic tickets, which have been turned over to them for collection. They told you you can't dispute (and we all know that collection agencies always tell the truth, right?)

Let's not get bogged down with DV'ing or C&D'ing, or whether or not they're licensed, and go back to the basics. I think you stop talking to them on the phone, and your FIRST step is to respond with a letter to them (CRRR), stating as many of these points as are true:

-You are a resident of Arizona

-You have never been to California

-You were not in California on the dates the tickets were issued (if known)

-You have never ridden the light rail in California

-You did not ride the light rail on the dates the tickets were issued (if known)

-You have never received a ticket on the California light rail system

-You have never been notified of a ticket

-You have never been ordered to appear in court regarding a ticket

-You have received no prior notice of any fine owed

And finally, you have no intention of paying a fine that is not yours, and if they think they have any evidence to the contrary, you want to see it.

Then, the ball's in their court, see how they respond.
