LVNV offered me an Identity Theft Affidavit. Should I do it?

Fill out the Identity Theft Affidavit and get a police report.

The police give you a case number.

Send the originals to LVNV and make a copy for yourself.

Create an Identity Theft Report | Consumer Information I would use this one not one from LVNV

Thanks. But why would I need a police report?It has been about 3 years since it was closed.

He just said he needs the affidavit. And why use the one from FTC instead of theirs?

NOTE:  An affavadit requires you to state that to the best of your knowledge, you have been the victum of identity theft.  If you're using this to get out of paying a debt you know to be yours...be careful.

This.  If you have, in fact, been the victim of identity theft, that's one thing.  If you haven't, probably not a good idea to filkl out this affidavit.

Unless you are reasonably sure you are the victim of identity theft, you should not state that you are, and most definitely not sign a document to that effect.  What I would be doing is telling LVNV that I need to do "criminal investigation" of this for the possibility of identity theft, and that THEY (LVNV) need to provide me with a notarized copy of all the evidence they have that it is not identity theft, and that failure to do so could be treated as intentional interference of the investigation.

 

Can you post a copy of their affidavit form so we can see literally what they want to get out of you?  Normally, nothing should be put on such a form that would give them new information they do not already have.

 

I'd also ask them if they want to switch all communications of this matter to "in writing".  If they don't, I'd then tell them that since they prefer telephone communications, I will therefore READ ALOUD the information placed in the affidavit according to their wishes to have communications by telephone.  "Oh, you want me to send this by mail? ... I want you to send ALL communications by mail".

Give them information you know that they already have.  Don't give them info if you do not believe they already have it (like DL).  Do not give any telephone numbers you have never been called at or do not want to be called at.  if they have not given you the account open date, then you have no means to provide information other than what is current today.  But if they have given you an account open date, then it is OK to provide information that was yours at that date, if it is stuff they have about you for today.

No I'm just going by what my credit report shows.

No I'm just going by what my credit report shows.

 

Some information can be obtained and used base on how a collector collects, and from a credit report.

 

For example, a JDB has a debt they claim I owe, from a creditor I've never done business with.  I know it's past SOL because the JDB sued me for it, then withdrew after I demanded various info including proof of ownership and the original contract, in 2006.  We have 5 year SOL here and they still try to collect about once or twice a year (not sending C&D so I can keep track of them).  So I know it is past SOL without even knowing the default date.  In theory, "not mine" should prevail.  But SOL can be convenient.
